    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Hebrews 4:1-5, 11

    1Therefore, while the promise of entering his rest remains, let us fear lest any of you be judged to have failed to reach it.2For good news came to us just as to them;but the message which they heard did not benefit them, because it did not meet with faith in the hearers.3For we who have believed enter that rest, as he has said, "As I swore in my wrath, `They shall never enter my rest, '"although his works were finished from the foundation of the world.4For he has somewhere spoken of the seventh day in this way, "And God rested on the seventh day from all his works."5And again in this place he said, "They shall never enter my rest."11Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, that no one fall by the same sort of disobedience.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 78:3, 4, 6-8

    3things that we have heard and known, that our fathers have told us. 4We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the LORD, and his might, and the wonders which he has wrought. 6that the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and arise and tell them to their children, 7so that they should set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments;8and that they should not be like their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation, a generation whose heart was not steadfast, whose spirit was not faithful to God.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mark 2:1-12

    1And when he returned to Caper'na-um after some days, it was reported that he was at home. 2And many were gathered together, so that there was no longer room for them, not even about the door;and he was preaching the word to them. 3And they came, bringing to him a paralytic carried by four men. 4And when they could not get near him because of the crowd, they removed the roof above him;and when they had made an opening, they let down the pallet on which the paralytic lay. 5And when Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "My son, your sins are forgiven." 6Now some of the scribes were sitting there, questioning in their hearts, 7"Why does this man speak thus? It is blasphemy! Who can forgive sins but God alone?" 8And immediately Jesus, perceiving in his spirit that they thus questioned within themselves, said to them, "Why do you question thus in your hearts? 9Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, `Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, `Rise, take up your pallet and walk'? 10But that you may know that the Son of man has authority on earth to forgive sins" -- he said to the paralytic -- 11"I say to you, rise, take up your pallet and go home." 12And he rose, and immediately took up the pallet and went out before them all;so that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, "We never saw anything like this!"

  • FRIDAY FIRST WEEK OF ORDINARY TIME 2015:

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Heb 4:1-5, 11

    Let us be on our guard
    while the promise of entering into his rest remains,
    that none of you seem to have failed.
    For in fact we have received the Good News just as our ancestors did.
    But the word that they heard did not profit them,
    for they were not united in faith with those who listened.
    For we who believed enter into that rest,
    just as he has said:

    As I swore in my wrath,
    “They shall not enter into my rest,”


    and yet his works were accomplished
    at the foundation of the world.
    For he has spoken somewhere about the seventh day in this manner,
    And God rested on the seventh day from all his works;
    and again, in the previously mentioned place,
    They shall not enter into my rest.

    Therefore, let us strive to enter into that rest,
    so that no one may fall after the same example of disobedience.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 78:3 and 4bc, 6c-7, 8

    R.(see 7b) Do not forget the works of the Lord!
    What we have heard and know,
    and what our fathers have declared to us,
    we will declare to the generation to come
    The glorious deeds of the LORD and his strength.
    R. Do not forget the works of the Lord!
    That they too may rise and declare to their sons
    that they should put their hope in God,
    And not forget the deeds of God
    but keep his commands.
    R. Do not forget the works of the Lord!
    And not be like their fathers,
    a generation wayward and rebellious,
    A generation that kept not its heart steadfast
    nor its spirit faithful toward God.
    R. Do not forget the works of the Lord!

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mk 2:1-12

    When Jesus returned to Capernaum after some days,
    it became known that he was at home.
    Many gathered together so that there was no longer room for them,
    not even around the door,
    and he preached the word to them.
    They came bringing to him a paralytic carried by four men.
    Unable to get near Jesus because of the crowd,
    they opened up the roof above him.
    After they had broken through,
    they let down the mat on which the paralytic was lying.
    When Jesus saw their faith, he said to him,
    "Child, your sins are forgiven."
    Now some of the scribes were sitting there asking themselves,
    "Why does this man speak that way? He is blaspheming.
    Who but God alone can forgive sins?"
    Jesus immediately knew in his mind what
    they were thinking to themselves,
    so he said, "Why are you thinking such things in your hearts?
    Which is easier, to say to the paralytic,
    'Your sins are forgiven,'
    or to say, 'Rise, pick up your mat and walk'?
    But that you may know
    that the Son of Man has authority to forgive sins on earth"
    -he said to the paralytic,
    "I say to you, rise, pick up your mat, and go home."
    He rose, picked up his mat at once,
    and went away in the sight of everyone.
    They were all astounded
    and glorified God, saying, "We have never seen anything like this."
