    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Titus 3:1-7

    1Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for any honest work, 2to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all men. 3For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by men and hating one another; 4but when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, 5he saved us, not because of deeds done by us in righteousness, but in virtue of his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal in the Holy Spirit, 6which he poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7so that we might be justified by his grace and become heirs in hope of eternal life.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 23:1-6

    1The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want; 2he makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters; 3he restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me. 5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies; thou anointest my head with oil, my cup overflows. 6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Luke 17:11-19

    11On the way to Jerusalem he was passing along between Sama'ria and Galilee. 12And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance 13and lifted up their voices and said, "Jesus, Master, have mercy on us." 14When he saw them he said to them, "Go and show yourselves to the priests." And as they went they were cleansed. 15Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; 16and he fell on his face at Jesus' feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan. 17Then said Jesus, "Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? 18Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?" 19And he said to him, "Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well."

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Wis 18:14-16; 19:6-9

    When peaceful stillness compassed everything
    and the night in its swift course was half spent,
    Your all-powerful word, from heaven’s royal throne
    bounded, a fierce warrior, into the doomed land,
    bearing the sharp sword of your inexorable decree.
    And as he alighted, he filled every place with death;
    he still reached to heaven, while he stood upon the earth.

    For all creation, in its several kinds, was being made over anew,
    serving its natural laws,
    that your children might be preserved unharmed.
    The cloud overshadowed their camp;
    and out of what had before been water, dry land was seen emerging:
    Out of the Red Sea an unimpeded road,
    and a grassy plain out of the mighty flood.
    Over this crossed the whole nation sheltered by your hand,
    after they beheld stupendous wonders.
    For they ranged about like horses,
    and bounded about like lambs,
    praising you, O Lord! their deliverer.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 105:2-3, 36-37, 42-43

    R. (5a) Remember the marvels the Lord has done!
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Sing to him, sing his praise,
    proclaim all his wondrous deeds.
    Glory in his holy name;
    rejoice, O hearts that seek the LORD!
    R. Remember the marvels the Lord has done!
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Then he struck every first born throughout their land,
    the first fruits of all their manhood.
    And he led them forth laden with silver and gold,
    with not a weakling among their tribes.
    R. Remember the marvels the Lord has done!
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    For he remembered his holy word
    to his servant Abraham.
    And he led forth his people with joy;
    with shouts of joy, his chosen ones.
    R. Remember the marvels the Lord has done!
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    lk 18:1-8

    Jesus told his disciples a parable
    about the necessity for them to pray always without becoming weary.
    He said, “There was a judge in a certain town
    who neither feared God nor respected any human being.
    And a widow in that town used to come to him and say,
    ‘Render a just decision for me against my adversary.’
    For a long time the judge was unwilling, but eventually he thought,
    ‘While it is true that I neither fear God nor respect any human being,
    because this widow keeps bothering me
    I shall deliver a just decision for her
    lest she finally come and strike me.’”
    The Lord said, “Pay attention to what the dishonest judge says.
    Will not God then secure the rights of his chosen ones
    who call out to him day and night?
    Will he be slow to answer them?
    I tell you, he will see to it that justice is done for them speedily.
    But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?”
