    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Wisdom 7:7-14

    7Therefore I prayed, and understanding was given me; I called upon God, and the spirit of wisdom came to me. 8I preferred her to scepters and thrones, and I accounted wealth as nothing in comparison with her. 9Neither did I liken to her any priceless gem, because all gold is but a little sand in her sight, and silver will be accounted as clay before her. 10I loved her more than health and beauty, and I chose to have her rather than light, because her radiance never ceases. 11All good things came to me along with her, and in her hands uncounted wealth. 12I rejoiced in them all, because wisdom leads them; but I did not know that she was their mother. 13I learned without guile and I impart without grudging; I do not hide her wealth, 14for it is an unfailing treasure for men; those who get it obtain friendship with God, commended for the gifts that come from instruction.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Psalms 40:3-4, 10-11, 17

    2He drew me up from the desolate pit, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. 3He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the LORD. 9I have told the glad news of deliverance in the great congregation; lo, I have not restrained my lips, as thou knowest, O LORD. 10I have not hid thy saving help within my heart, I have spoken of thy faithfulness and thy salvation; I have not concealed thy steadfast love and thy faithfulness from the great congregation. 16But may all who seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee; may those who love thy salvation say continually, "Great is the LORD!"

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mark 16:15-20

    15And he said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation. 16He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover." 19So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. 20And they went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by the signs that attended it. Amen.

  • THURSDAY TENTH WEEK OF ORDINARY TIME 2013:

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    2 Cor 3:15—4:1, 3-6

    Brothers and sisters:
    To this day, whenever Moses is read,
    a veil lies over the hearts of the children of Israel,
    but whenever a person turns to the Lord the veil is removed.
    Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is,
    there is freedom.
    All of us, gazing with unveiled face on the glory of the Lord,
    are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory,
    as from the Lord who is the Spirit.

    Therefore, since we have this ministry through the mercy shown us,
    we are not discouraged.
    And even though our Gospel is veiled,
    it is veiled for those who are perishing,
    in whose case the god of this age
    has blinded the minds of the unbelievers,
    so that they may not see the light of the Gospel
    of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
    For we do not preach ourselves but Jesus Christ as Lord,
    and ourselves as your slaves for the sake of Jesus.
    For God who said, Let light shine out of darkness,
    has shone in our hearts to bring to light
    the knowledge of the glory of God
    on the face of Jesus Christ.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 85:9ab and 10, 11-12, 13-14

    R. (see 10b) The glory of the Lord will dwell in our land.
    I will hear what God proclaims;
    the LORD–for he proclaims peace to his people.
    Near indeed is his salvation to those who fear him,
    glory dwelling in our land.
    R. The glory of the Lord will dwell in our land.
    Kindness and truth shall meet;
    justice and peace shall kiss.
    Truth shall spring out of the earth,
    and justice shall look down from heaven.
    R. The glory of the Lord will dwell in our land.
    The LORD himself will give his benefits;
    our land shall yield its increase.
    Justice shall walk before him,
    and salvation, along the way of his steps.
    R. The glory of the Lord will dwell in our land.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 5:20-26

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    "I tell you, unless your righteousness surpasses that
    of the scribes and Pharisees,
    you will not enter into the Kingdom of heaven.

    "You have heard that it was said to your ancestors,
    You shall not kill; and whoever kills will be liable to judgment.
    But I say to you, whoever is angry with his brother
    will be liable to judgment,
    and whoever says to his brother,
    'Raqa,' will be answerable to the Sanhedrin,
    and whoever says, "You fool," will be liable to fiery Gehenna.
    Therefore, if you bring your gift to the altar,
    and there recall that your brother
    has anything against you,
    leave your gift there at the altar,
    go first and be reconciled with your brother,
    and then come and offer your gift.
    Settle with your opponent quickly while on the way to court with him.
    Otherwise your opponent will hand you over to the judge,
    and the judge will hand you over to the guard,
    and you will be thrown into prison.
    Amen, I say to you,
    you will not be released until you have paid the last penny."
