    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Galatians 2:19-20

    19For I through the law died to the law, that I might live to God. 20I have been crucified with Christ;it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me;and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 126:1-6

    1When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream. 2Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy;then they said among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them." 3The LORD has done great things for us;we are glad. 4Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like the watercourses in the Negeb! 5May those who sow in tears reap with shouts of joy! 6He that goes forth weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, shall come home with shouts of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 28:16-20

    16Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17And when they saw him they worshiped him;but some doubted. 18And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you;and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age."

  • FRIDAY FOURTH WEEK OF ORDINARY TIME 2015:

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Heb 13:1-8

    Let brotherly love continue.
    Do not neglect hospitality,
    for through it some have unknowingly entertained angels.
    Be mindful of prisoners as if sharing their imprisonment,
    and of the ill-treated as of yourselves,
    for you also are in the body.
    Let marriage be honored among all
    and the marriage bed be kept undefiled,
    for God will judge the immoral and adulterers.
    Let your life be free from love of money
    but be content with what you have,
    for he has said, I will never forsake you or abandon you.
    Thus we may say with confidence:

    The Lord is my helper,
    and I will not be afraid.
    What can anyone do to me
    ?

    Remember your leaders who spoke the word of God to you.
    Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.
    Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 27:1, 3, 5, 8b-9abc

    R. (1a) The Lord is my light and my salvation.
    The LORD is my light and my salvation;
    whom should I fear?
    The LORD is my life’s refuge;
    of whom should I be afraid?
    R. The Lord is my light and my salvation.
    Though an army encamp against me,
    my heart will not fear;
    Though war be waged upon me,
    even then will I trust.
    R. The Lord is my light and my salvation.
    For he will hide me in his abode
    in the day of trouble;
    He will conceal me in the shelter of his tent,
    he will set me high upon a rock.
    R. The Lord is my light and my salvation.
    Your presence, O LORD, I seek.
    Hide not your face from me;
    do not in anger repel your servant.
    You are my helper: cast me not off.
    R. The Lord is my light and my salvation.

    Alleluia See Lk 8:15

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Blessed are they who have kept the word with a generous heart,
    and yield a harvest through perseverance.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mk 6:14-29

    King Herod heard about Jesus, for his fame had become widespread,
    and people were saying,
    "John the Baptist has been raised from the dead;
    that is why mighty powers are at work in him."
    Others were saying, "He is Elijah";
    still others, "He is a prophet like any of the prophets."
    But when Herod learned of it, he said,
    "It is John whom I beheaded. He has been raised up."

    Herod was the one who had John arrested and bound in prison
    on account of Herodias,
    the wife of his brother Philip, whom he had married.
    John had said to Herod,
    "It is not lawful for you to have your brother's wife."
    Herodias harbored a grudge against him
    and wanted to kill him but was unable to do so.
    Herod feared John, knowing him to be a righteous and holy man,
    and kept him in custody.
    When he heard him speak he was very much perplexed,
    yet he liked to listen to him.
    Herodias had an opportunity one day when Herod, on his birthday,
    gave a banquet for his courtiers, his military officers,
    and the leading men of Galilee.
    His own daughter came in and performed a dance
    that delighted Herod and his guests.
    The king said to the girl,
    "Ask of me whatever you wish and I will grant it to you."
    He even swore many things to her,
    "I will grant you whatever you ask of me,
    even to half of my kingdom."
    She went out and said to her mother,
    "What shall I ask for?"
    Her mother replied, "The head of John the Baptist."
    The girl hurried back to the king's presence and made her request,
    "I want you to give me at once on a platter
    the head of John the Baptist."
    The king was deeply distressed,
    but because of his oaths and the guests
    he did not wish to break his word to her.
    So he promptly dispatched an executioner
    with orders to bring back his head.
    He went off and beheaded him in the prison.
    He brought in the head on a platter
    and gave it to the girl.
    The girl in turn gave it to her mother.
    When his disciples heard about it,
    they came and took his body and laid it in a tomb.
