    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Hebrews 1:1-6

    1In many and various ways God spoke of old to our fathers by the prophets;2but in these last days he has spoken to us by a Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.3He reflects the glory of God and bears the very stamp of his nature, upholding the universe by his word of power. When he had made purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,4having become as much superior to angels as the name he has obtained is more excellent than theirs.5For to what angel did God ever say, "Thou art my Son, today I have begotten thee"? Or again, "I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son"?6And again, when he brings the first-born into the world, he says, "Let all God's angels worship him."

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 97:1-2, 6-7, 9

    1The LORD reigns; let the earth rejoice; let the many coastlands be glad! 2Clouds and thick darkness are round about him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne. 6The heavens proclaim his righteousness; and all the peoples behold his glory. 7All worshipers of images are put to shame, who make their boast in worthless idols; all gods bow down before him. 9For thou, O LORD, art most high over all the earth; thou art exalted far above all gods.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Mark 1:14-20

    14Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, 15and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent, and believe in the gospel." 16And passing along by the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net in the sea; for they were fishermen. 17And Jesus said to them, "Follow me and I will make you become fishers of men." 18And immediately they left their nets and followed him. 19And going on a little farther, he saw James the son of Zeb'edee and John his brother, who were in their boat mending the nets. 20And immediately he called them; and they left their father Zeb'edee in the boat with the hired servants, and followed him.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    John 5, 14-21

    Beloved:
    We have this confidence in him
    that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
    And if we know that he hears us in regard to whatever we ask,
    we know that what we have asked him for is ours.
    If anyone sees his brother sinning, if the sin is not deadly,
    he should pray to God and he will give him life.
    This is only for those whose sin is not deadly.
    There is such a thing as deadly sin,
    about which I do not say that you should pray.
    All wrongdoing is sin, but there is sin that is not deadly.

    We know that anyone begotten by God does not sin;
    but the one begotten by God he protects,
    and the Evil One cannot touch him.
    We know that we belong to God,
    and the whole world is under the power of the Evil One.
    We also know that the Son of God has come
    and has given us discernment to know the one who is true.
    And we are in the one who is true,
    in his Son Jesus Christ.
    He is the true God and eternal life.
    Children, be on your guard against idols.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalm 149, 1-2. 3-4. 5-6a & 9b (R/.: 4a)

    R. (see 4a) The Lord takes delight in his people.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Sing to the LORD a new song
    of praise in the assembly of the faithful.
    Let Israel be glad in their maker,
    let the children of Zion rejoice in their king.
    R. The Lord takes delight in his people.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Let them praise his name in the festive dance,
    let them sing praise to him with timbrel and harp.
    For the LORD loves his people,
    and he adorns the lowly with victory.
    R. The Lord takes delight in his people.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Let the faithful exult in glory;
    let them sing for joy upon their couches;
    Let the high praises of God be in their throats.
    This is the glory of all his faithful. Alleluia.
    R. The Lord takes delight in his people.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    John 3, 22-30

    Jesus and his disciples went into the region of Judea,
    where he spent some time with them baptizing.
    John was also baptizing in Aenon near Salim,
    because there was an abundance of water there,
    and people came to be baptized,
    for John had not yet been imprisoned.
    Now a dispute arose between the disciples of John and a Jew
    about ceremonial washings.
    So they came to John and said to him,
    “Rabbi, the one who was with you across the Jordan,
    to whom you testified,
    here he is baptizing and everyone is coming to him.”
    John answered and said,
    “No one can receive anything except what has been given from heaven.
    You yourselves can testify that I said that I am not the Christ,
    but that I was sent before him.
    The one who has the bride is the bridegroom;
    the best man, who stands and listens for him,
    rejoices greatly at the bridegroom’s voice.
    So this joy of mine has been made complete.
    He must increase; I must decrease.”
