    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 13:46-49

    46And Paul and Barnabas spoke out boldly, saying, "It was necessary that the word of God should be spoken first to you. Since you thrust it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, behold, we turn to the Gentiles. 47For so the Lord has commanded us, saying, `I have set you to be a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the uttermost parts of the earth.'" 48And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and glorified the word of God; and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed. 49And the word of the Lord spread throughout all the region.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 117:1-2

    1Praise the LORD, all nations! Extol him, all peoples! 2For great is his steadfast love toward us; and the faithfulness of the LORD endures for ever. Praise the LORD!

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Luke 10:1-9

    1After this the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to come. 2And he said to them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. 3Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. 4Carry no purse, no bag, no sandals; and salute no one on the road. 5Whatever house you enter, first say, `Peace be to this house!' 6And if a son of peace is there, your peace shall rest upon him; but if not, it shall return to you. 7And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for the laborer deserves his wages; do not go from house to house. 8Whenever you enter a town and they receive you, eat what is set before you; 9heal the sick in it and say to them, `The kingdom of God has come near to you.'

    Time of Lent.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Dt 30:15-20

    Moses said to the people:
    “Today I have set before you
    life and prosperity, death and doom.
    If you obey the commandments of the LORD, your God,
    which I enjoin on you today,
    loving him, and walking in his ways,
    and keeping his commandments, statutes and decrees,
    you will live and grow numerous,
    and the LORD, your God,
    will bless you in the land you are entering to occupy.
    If, however, you turn away your hearts and will not listen,
    but are led astray and adore and serve other gods,
    I tell you now that you will certainly perish;
    you will not have a long life
    on the land that you are crossing the Jordan to enter and occupy.
    I call heaven and earth today to witness against you:
    I have set before you life and death,
    the blessing and the curse.
    Choose life, then,
    that you and your descendants may live, by loving the LORD, your God,
    heeding his voice, and holding fast to him.
    For that will mean life for you,
    a long life for you to live on the land that the LORD swore
    he would give to your fathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.”

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 1:1-2, 3, 4 and 6

    R. (40:5a) Blessed are they who hope in the Lord.
    Blessed the man who follows not
    the counsel of the wicked
    Nor walks in the way of sinners,
    nor sits in the company of the insolent,
    But delights in the law of the LORD
    and meditates on his law day and night.
    R. Blessed are they who hope in the Lord.
    He is like a tree
    planted near running water,
    That yields its fruit in due season,
    and whose leaves never fade.
    Whatever he does, prospers.
    R. Blessed are they who hope in the Lord.
    Not so the wicked, not so;
    they are like chaff which the wind drives away.
    For the LORD watches over the way of the just,
    but the way of the wicked vanishes.
    R. Blessed are they who hope in the Lord.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 9:22-25

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “The Son of Man must suffer greatly and be rejected
    by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes,
    and be killed and on the third day be raised.”

    Then he said to all,
    “If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself
    and take up his cross daily and follow me.
    For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it,
    but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.
    What profit is there for one to gain the whole world
    yet lose or forfeit himself?”
