  • The Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary 2015:

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Gn 3:9-15, 20

    After the man, Adam, had eaten of the tree,
    the LORD God called to the man and asked him, "Where are you?"
    He answered, "I heard you in the garden;
    but I was afraid, because I was naked,
    so I hid myself."
    Then he asked, "Who told you that you were naked?
    You have eaten, then,
    from the tree of which I had forbidden you to eat!"
    The man replied, "The woman whom you put here with me--
    she gave me fruit from the tree, and so I ate it."
    The LORD God then asked the woman,
    "Why did you do such a thing?"
    The woman answered, "The serpent tricked me into it, so I ate it."

    Then the LORD God said to the serpent:
    "Because you have done this, you shall be banned
    from all the animals
    and from all the wild creatures;
    on your belly shall you crawl,
    and dirt shall you eat
    all the days of your life.
    I will put enmity between you and the woman,
    and between your offspring and hers;
    he will strike at your head,
    while you strike at his heel."

    The man called his wife Eve,
    because she became the mother of all the living.

    in the sight of the nations he has revealed his justice.
    He has remembered his kindness and his faithfulness
    toward the house of Israel.
    R. Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous deeds.

    break into song;sing praise.
    R. Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous deeds.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Eph 1:3-6, 11-12

    Brothers and sisters:
    Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
    who has blessed us in Christ
    with every spiritual blessing in the heavens,
    as he chose us in him, before the foundation of the world,
    to be holy and without blemish before him.
    In love he destined us for adoption to himself through Jesus Christ,
    in accord with the favor of his will,
    for the praise of the glory of his grace
    that he granted us in the beloved.

    In him we were also chosen,
    destined in accord with the purpose of the One
    who accomplishes all things according to the intention of his will,
    so that we might exist for the praise of his glory,
    we who first hoped in Christ.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 1:26-38

    The angel Gabriel was sent from God
    to a town of Galilee called Nazareth,
    to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph,
    of the house of David,
    and the virgin's name was Mary.
    And coming to her, he said,
    "Hail, full of grace! The Lord is with you."
    But she was greatly troubled at what was said
    and pondered what sort of greeting this might be.
    Then the angel said to her,
    "Do not be afraid, Mary,
    for you have found favor with God.
    Behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son,
    and you shall name him Jesus.
    He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High,
    and the Lord God will give him the throne of David his father,
    and he will rule over the house of Jacob forever,
    and of his Kingdom there will be no end."
    But Mary said to the angel,
    "How can this be,
    since I have no relations with a man?"
    And the angel said to her in reply,
    "The Holy Spirit will come upon you,
    and the power of the Most High will overshadow you.
    Therefore the child to be born
    will be called holy, the Son of God.
    And behold, Elizabeth, your relative,
    has also conceived a son in her old age,
    and this is the sixth month for her who was called barren;
    for nothing will be impossible for God."
    Mary said, "Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord.
    May it be done to me according to your word."
    Then the angel departed from her.

  • TUESDAY SECOND WEEK OF ADVENT 2015:

    Advent Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Is 40:1-11

    Comfort, give comfort to my people,
    says your God.
    Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and proclaim to her
    that her service is at an end,
    her guilt is expiated;
    Indeed, she has received from the hand of the LORD
    double for all her sins.

    A voice cries out:
    In the desert prepare the way of the LORD!
    Make straight in the wasteland a highway for our God!
    Every valley shall be filled in,
    every mountain and hill shall be made low;
    The rugged land shall be made a plain,
    the rough country, a broad valley.
    Then the glory of the LORD shall be revealed,
    and all people shall see it together;
    for the mouth of the LORD has spoken.

    A voice says, “Cry out!”
    I answer, “What shall I cry out?”
    “All flesh is grass,
    and all their glory like the flower of the field.
    The grass withers, the flower wilts,
    when the breath of the LORD blows upon it.
    So then, the people is the grass.
    Though the grass withers and the flower wilts,
    the word of our God stands forever.”

    Go up onto a high mountain,
    Zion, herald of glad tidings;
    Cry out at the top of your voice,
    Jerusalem, herald of good news!
    Fear not to cry out
    and say to the cities of Judah:
    Here is your God!
    Here comes with power
    the Lord GOD,
    who rules by his strong arm;
    Here is his reward with him,
    his recompense before him.
    Like a shepherd he feeds his flock;
    in his arms he gathers the lambs,
    Carrying them in his bosom,
    and leading the ewes with care.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 96:1-2, 3 and 10ac, 11-12, 13

    R. (see Isaiah 40:10ab) The Lord our God comes with power.
    Sing to the LORD a new song;
    sing to the LORD, all you lands.
    Sing to the LORD;bless his name;
    announce his salvation, day after day.
    R. The Lord our God comes with power.
    Tell his glory among the nations;
    among all peoples, his wondrous deeds.
    Say among the nations: The LORD is king;
    he governs the peoples with equity.
    R. The Lord our God comes with power.
    Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice;
    let the sea and what fills it resound;
    let the plains be joyful and all that is in them!
    Then let all the trees of the forest rejoice.
    R. The Lord our God comes with power.
    They shall exult before the LORD, for he comes;
    for he comes to rule the earth.
    He shall rule the world with justice
    and the peoples with his constancy.
    R. The Lord our God comes with power.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 18:12-14

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “What is your opinion?
    If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them goes astray,
    will he not leave the ninety-nine in the hills
    and go in search of the stray?
    And if he finds it, amen, I say to you, he rejoices more over it
    than over the ninety-nine that did not stray.
    In just the same way, it is not the will of your heavenly Father
    that one of these little ones be lost.”
