    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    2 Cor 9:6-10

    Brothers and sisters:
    Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly,
    and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
    Each must do as already determined, without sadness or compulsion,
    for God loves a cheerful giver.
    Moreover, God is able to make every grace abundant for you,
    so that in all things, always having all you need,
    you may have an abundance for every good work.
    As it is written:

    He scatters abroad, he gives to the poor;
    his righteousness endures forever.


    The one who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food
    will supply and multiply your seed
    and increase the harvest of your righteousness.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 112:1-2, 5-6, 7-8, 9

    R. (5) Blessed the man who is gracious and lends to those in need.
    Blessed the man who fears the LORD,
    who greatly delights in his commands.
    His posterity shall be mighty upon the earth;
    the upright generation shall be blessed.
    R. Blessed the man who is gracious and lends to those in need.
    Well for the man who is gracious and lends,
    who conducts his affairs with justice;
    He shall never be moved;
    the just one shall be in everlasting remembrance.
    R. Blessed the man who is gracious and lends to those in need.
    An evil report he shall not fear;
    his heart is firm, trusting in the LORD.
    His heart is steadfast; he shall not fear
    till he looks down upon his foes.
    R. Blessed the man who is gracious and lends to those in need.
    Lavishly he gives to the poor,
    his generosity shall endure forever;
    his horn shall be exalted in glory.
    R. Blessed the man who is gracious and lends to those in need.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 12:24-26

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “Amen, amen, I say to you,
    unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies,
    it remains just a grain of wheat;
    but if it dies, it produces much fruit.
    Whoever loves his life loses it,
    and whoever hates his life in this world
    will preserve it for eternal life.
    Whoever serves me must follow me,
    and where I am, there also will my servant be.
    The Father will honor whoever serves me.”

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Dt 6:4-13

    Moses said to the people:
    “Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD alone!
    Therefore, you shall love the LORD, your God,
    with all your heart,
    and with all your soul,
    and with all your strength.
    Take to heart these words which I enjoin on you today.
    Drill them into your children.
    Speak of them at home and abroad, whether you are busy or at rest.
    Bind them at your wrist as a sign
    and let them be as a pendant on your forehead.
    Write them on the doorposts of your houses and on your gates.

    “When the LORD, your God, brings you into the land which he swore
    to your fathers: Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,
    that he would give you,
    a land with fine, large cities that you did not build,
    with houses full of goods of all sorts that you did not garner,
    with cisterns that you did not dig,
    with vineyards and olive groves that you did not plant;
    and when, therefore, you eat your fill,
    take care not to forget the LORD,
    who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery.
    The LORD, your God, shall you fear;
    him shall you serve, and by his name shall you swear.”

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 18:2-3a, 3bc-4, 47 and 51

    R. (2) I love you, Lord, my strength.
    I love you, O LORD, my strength,
    O LORD, my rock, my fortress, my deliverer.
    R. I love you, Lord, my strength.
    My God, my rock of refuge,
    my shield, the horn of my salvation, my stronghold!
    Praised be the LORD, I exclaim!
    And I am safe from my enemies.
    R. I love you, Lord, my strength.
    The LORD live! And blessed be my Rock!
    Extolled be God my savior!
    You who gave great victories to your king,
    and showed kindness to your anointed,
    to David and his posterity forever.
    R. I love you, Lord, my strength.

    Alleluia See 2 Tm 1:10

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Our Savior Jesus Christ has destroyed death
    and brought life to light through the Gospel.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 17:14-20

    A man came up to Jesus, knelt down before him, and said,
    "Lord, have pity on my son, who is a lunatic and suffers severely;
    often he falls into fire, and often into water.
    I brought him to your disciples, but they could not cure him."
    Jesus said in reply,
    "O faithless and perverse generation, how long will I be with you?
    How long will I endure you?
    Bring the boy here to me."
    Jesus rebuked him and the demon came out of him,
    and from that hour the boy was cured.
    Then the disciples approached Jesus in private and said,
    "Why could we not drive it out?"
    He said to them, "Because of your little faith.
    Amen, I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed,
    you will say to this mountain,
    "Move from here to there," and it will move.
    Nothing will be impossible for you."
