    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 Corinthians 1:18-25

    18For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19For it is written, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the cleverness of the clever I will thwart." 20Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe. 22For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, 23but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, 24but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 34:2-9

    1I will bless the LORD at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. 2My soul makes its boast in the LORD; let the afflicted hear and be glad. 3O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together! 4I sought the LORD, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears. 5Look to him, and be radiant; so your faces shall never be ashamed. 6This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. 7The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them. 8O taste and see that the LORD is good! Happy is the man who takes refuge in him!

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 5:13-19

    13"You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trodden under foot by men. 14"You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid. 15Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a bushel, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. 17"Think not that I have come to abolish the law and the prophets; I have come not to abolish them but to fulfil them. 18For truly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the law until all is accomplished. 19Whoever then relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but he who does them and teaches them shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Sir 51:12 cd-20

    I thank the LORD and I praise him;
    I bless the name of the LORD.
    When I was young and innocent,
    I sought wisdom openly in my prayer
    I prayed for her before the temple,
    and I will seek her until the end,
    and she flourished as a grape soon ripe.
    My heart delighted in her,
    My feet kept to the level path
    because from earliest youth I was familiar with her.
    In the short time I paid heed,
    I met with great instruction.
    Since in this way I have profited,
    I will give my teacher grateful praise.
    I became resolutely devoted to her—
    the good I persistently strove for.
    My soul was tormented in seeking her,
    My hand opened her gate
    and I came to know her secrets.
    I directed my soul to her,
    and in cleanness I attained to her.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 19:8, 9, 10, 11

    R. (9ab) The precepts of the Lord give joy to the heart.
    The law of the LORD is perfect,
    refreshing the soul.
    The decree of the LORD is trustworthy,
    giving wisdom to the simple.
    R. The precepts of the Lord give joy to the heart.
    The precepts of the LORD are right,
    rejoicing the heart.
    The command of the LORD is clear,
    enlightening the eye.
    R. The precepts of the Lord give joy to the heart.
    The fear of the LORD is pure,
    enduring forever;
    The ordinances of the LORD are true,
    all of them just.
    R. The precepts of the Lord give joy to the heart.
    They are more precious than gold,
    than a heap of purest gold;
    Sweeter also than syrup
    or honey from the comb.
    R. The precepts of the Lord give joy to the heart.

    Alleluia See Col 3:16a, 17c

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly;
    giving thanks to God the Father through him.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mk 11:27-33

    Jesus and his disciples returned once more to Jerusalem.
    As he was walking in the temple area,
    the chief priests, the scribes, and the elders
    approached him and said to him,
    "By what authority are you doing these things?
    Or who gave you this authority to do them?"
    Jesus said to them, "I shall ask you one question.
    Answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things.
    Was John's baptism of heavenly or of human origin? Answer me."
    They discussed this among themselves and said,
    "If we say, 'Of heavenly origin,' he will say,
    'Then why did you not believe him?'
    But shall we say, 'Of human origin'?"--
    they feared the crowd,
    for they all thought John really was a prophet.
    So they said to Jesus in reply, "We do not know."
    Then Jesus said to them,
    "Neither shall I tell you by what authority I do these things."
