    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Tb 12:1, 5-15, 20

    Tobit called his son Tobiah and said to him,
    “Son, see to it that you give what is due to the man
    who made the journey with you;give him a bonus too.”
    So he called Raphael and said,
    “Take as your wages half of all that you have brought back,
    and go in peace.”

    Raphael called the two men aside privately and said to them:
    “Thank God! Give him the praise and the glory.
    Before all the living,
    acknowledge the many good things he has done for you,
    by blessing and extolling his name in song.
    Honor and proclaim God’s deeds,
    and do not be slack in praising him.
    A king’s secret it is prudent to keep,
    but the works of God are to be declared and made known.
    Praise them with due honor.
    Do good, and evil will not find its way to you.
    Prayer and fasting are good,
    but better than either is almsgiving accompanied by righteousness.
    A little with righteousness is better than abundance with wickedness.
    It is better to give alms than to store up gold;
    for almsgiving saves one from death and expiates every sin.
    Those who regularly give alms shall enjoy a full life;
    but those habitually guilty of sin are their own worst enemies.

    “I will now tell you the whole truth;
    I will conceal nothing at all from you.
    I have already said to you,
    ‘A king’s secret it is prudent to keep,
    but the works of God are to be made known with due honor.’
    I can now tell you that when you, Tobit, and Sarah prayed,
    it was I who presented and read the record of your prayer
    before the Glory of the Lord;
    and I did the same thing when you used to bury the dead.
    When you did not hesitate to get up
    and leave your dinner in order to go and bury the dead,
    I was sent to put you to the test.
    At the same time, however,
    God commissioned me to heal you and your daughter-in-law Sarah.
    I am Raphael, one of the seven angels
    who enter and serve before the Glory of the Lord.”

    “So now get up from the ground and praise God.
    Behold, I am about to ascend to him who sent me;
    write down all these things that have happened to you.”

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Tb 13:2, 6efgh, 7, 8

    R. (1b) Blessed be God, who lives for ever.
    He scourges and then has mercy;
    he casts down to the depths of the nether world,
    and he brings up from the great abyss.
    No one can escape his hand.
    R. Blessed be God, who lives for ever.
    So now consider what he has done for you,
    and praise him with full voice.
    Bless the Lord of righteousness,
    and exalt the King of ages.
    R. Blessed be God, who lives for ever.
    In the land of my exile I praise him
    and show his power and majesty to a sinful nation.
    R. Blessed be God, who lives for ever.
    Bless the Lord, all you his chosen ones,
    and may all of you praise his majesty.
    Celebrate days of gladness, and give him praise.
    R. Blessed be God, who lives for ever.

    Alleluia Mt 5:3

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Blessed are the poor in spirit;
    for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mark 12:38-44

    38And in his teaching he said, "Beware of the scribes, who like to go about in long robes, and to have salutations in the market places 39and the best seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at feasts, 40who devour widows' houses and for a pretense make long prayers. They will receive the greater condemnation." 41And he sat down opposite the treasury, and watched the multitude putting money into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. 42And a poor widow came, and put in two copper coins, which make a penny. 43And he called his disciples to him, and said to them, "Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the treasury. 44For they all contributed out of their abundance;but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, her whole living."
