    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Ephesians 6:10-13, 18

    10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13Therefore take the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 18Pray at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 16:1-2, 5, 7-8, 11

    1Preserve me, O God, for in thee I take refuge. 2I say to the LORD, "Thou art my Lord; I have no good apart from thee." 5The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; thou holdest my lot. 7I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me. 8I keep the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 11Thou dost show me the path of life; in thy presence there is fulness of joy, in thy right hand are pleasures for evermore.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 19:16-26

    16And behold, one came up to him, saying, "Teacher, what good deed must I do, to have eternal life?" 17And he said to him, "Why do you ask me about what is good? One there is who is good. If you would enter life, keep the commandments." 18He said to him, "Which?" And Jesus said, "You shall not kill, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness, 19Honor your father and mother, and, You shall love your neighbor as yourself." 20The young man said to him, "All these I have observed; what do I still lack?" 21Jesus said to him, "If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me." 22When the young man heard this he went away sorrowful; for he had great possessions. 23And Jesus said to his disciples, "Truly, I say to you, it will be hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." 25When the disciples heard this they were greatly astonished, saying, "Who then can be saved?" 26But Jesus looked at them and said to them, "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Heb 3:7-14

    The Holy Spirit says:
    Oh, that today you would hear his voice,
    “Harden not your hearts as at the rebellion
    in the day of testing in the desert,
    where your ancestors tested and tried me
    and saw my works for forty years.
    Because of this I was provoked with that generation
    and I said, ‘They have always been of erring heart,
    and they do not know my ways.’
    As I swore in my wrath,
    ‘They shall not enter into my rest.’”

    Take care, brothers and sisters,
    that none of you may have an evil and unfaithful heart,
    so as to forsake the living God.
    Encourage yourselves daily while it is still “today,”
    so that none of you may grow hardened by the deceit of sin.
    We have become partners of Christ
    if only we hold the beginning of the reality firm until the end.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 95:6-7c, 8-9, 10-11

    R.(8) If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
    Come, let us bow down in worship;
    let us kneel before the LORD who made us.
    For he is our God,
    and we are the people he shepherds, the flock he guides.
    R. If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
    Oh, that today you would hear his voice:
    “Harden not your hearts as at Meribah,
    as in the day of Massah in the desert,
    Where your fathers tempted me;
    they tested me though they had seen my works.”
    R. If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
    Forty years I was wearied of that generation;
    I said: “This people’s heart goes astray,
    they do not know my ways.”
    Therefore I swore in my anger:
    “They shall never enter my rest.”
    R. If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mk 1:40-45

    A leper came to him and kneeling down begged him and said,
    "If you wish, you can make me clean."
    Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand,
    touched the leper, and said to him,
    "I do will it. Be made clean."
    The leprosy left him immediately, and he was made clean.
    Then, warning him sternly, he dismissed him at once.
    Then he said to him, "See that you tell no one anything,
    but go, show yourself to the priest
    and offer for your cleansing what Moses prescribed;
    that will be proof for them."
    The man went away and began to publicize the whole matter.
    He spread the report abroad
    so that it was impossible for Jesus to enter a town openly.
    He remained outside in deserted places,
    and people kept coming to him from everywhere.
