    Brothers and sisters:
    We know that all things work for good for those who love God,
    who are called according to his purpose.
    For those he foreknew he also predestined
    to be conformed to the image of his Son,
    so that he might be the firstborn
    among many brothers.
    And those he predestined he also called;
    and those he called he also justified;
    and those he justified he also glorified.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 1:1-16, 18-23

    The Book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ,
    the son of David, the son of Abraham.

    Abraham became the father of Isaac,
    Isaac the father of Jacob,
    Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers.
    Judah became the father of Perez and Zerah,
    whose mother was Tamar.
    Perez became the father of Hezron,
    Hezron the father of Ram,
    Ram the father of Amminadab.
    Amminadab became the father of Nahshon,
    Nahshon the father of Salmon,
    Salmon the father of Boaz,
    whose mother was Rahab.
    Boaz became the father of Obed,
    whose mother was Ruth.
    Obed became the father of Jesse,
    Jesse the father of David the king.

    David became the father of Solomon,
    whose mother had been the wife of Uriah.
    Solomon became the father of Rehoboam,
    Rehoboam the father of Abijah,
    Abijah the father of Asaph.
    Asaph became the father of Jehoshaphat,
    Jehoshaphat the father of Joram,
    Joram the father of Uzziah.
    Uzziah became the father of Jotham,
    Jotham the father of Ahaz,
    Ahaz the father of Hezekiah.
    Hezekiah became the father of Manasseh,
    Manasseh the father of Amos,
    Amos the father of Josiah.
    Josiah became the father of Jechoniah and his brothers
    at the time of the Babylonian exile.

    After the Babylonian exile,

    Matthan the father of Jacob,
    Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary.
    Of her was born Jesus who is called the Christ.

    Now this is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about.
    When his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph,
    but before they lived together,
    she was found with child through the Holy Spirit.
    Joseph her husband, since he was a righteous man,
    yet unwilling to expose her to shame,
    decided to divorce her quietly.
    Such was his intention when, behold,
    the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said,
    "Joseph, son of David,
    do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home.
    For it is through the Holy Spirit
    that this child has been conceived in her.
    She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus,
    because he will save his people from their sins."
    All this took place to fulfill
    what the Lord had said through the prophet:

    Behold, the virgin shall be with child and bear a son,
    and they shall name him Emmanuel,


    which means "God is with us."

  • TUESDAY TWENTY-THIRD WEEK OF ORDINARY TIME 2015:

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Col 2:6-15

    Brothers and sisters:
    As you received Christ Jesus the Lord, walk in him,
    rooted in him and built upon him
    and established in the faith as you were taught,
    abounding in thanksgiving.
    See to it that no one captivate you with an empty, seductive philosophy
    according to the tradition of men,
    according to the elemental powers of the world
    and not according to Christ.

    For in him dwells the whole fullness of the deity bodily,
    and you share in this fullness in him,
    who is the head of every principality and power.
    In him you were also circumcised
    with a circumcision not administered by hand,
    by stripping off the carnal body, with the circumcision of Christ.
    You were buried with him in baptism,
    in which you were also raised with him
    through faith in the power of God,
    who raised him from the dead.
    And even when you were dead in transgressions
    and the uncircumcision of your flesh,
    he brought you to life along with him,
    having forgiven us all our transgressions;
    obliterating the bond against us, with its legal claims,
    which was opposed to us,
    he also removed it from our midst, nailing it to the cross;
    despoiling the principalities and the powers,
    he made a public spectacle of them,
    leading them away in triumph by it.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 145:1b-2, 8-9, 10-11

    R. (9) The Lord is compassionate toward all his works.
    I will extol you, O my God and King,
    and I will bless your name forever and ever.
    Every day will I bless you,
    and I will praise your name forever and ever.
    R. The Lord is compassionate toward all his works.
    The LORD is gracious and merciful,
    slow to anger and of great kindness.
    The LORD is good to all
    and compassionate toward all his works.
    R. The Lord is compassionate toward all his works.
    Let all your works give you thanks, O LORD,
    and let your faithful ones bless you.
    Let them discourse of the glory of your Kingdom
    and speak of your might.
    R. The Lord is compassionate toward all his works.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 6:12-19

    Jesus departed to the mountain to pray,
    and he spent the night in prayer to God.
    When day came, he called his disciples to himself,
    and from them he chose Twelve, whom he also named Apostles:
    Simon, whom he named Peter, and his brother Andrew,
    James, John, Philip, Bartholomew,
    Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus,
    Simon who was called a Zealot,
    and Judas the son of James,
    and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.

    And he came down with them and stood on a stretch of level ground.
    A great crowd of his disciples and a large number of the people
    from all Judea and Jerusalem
    and the coastal region of Tyre and Sidon
    came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases;
    and even those who were tormented by unclean spirits were cured.
    Everyone in the crowd sought to touch him
    because power came forth from him and healed them all.
