    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 Timothy 5:3-10

    3Honor widows who are real widows. 4If a widow has children or grandchildren, let them first learn their religious duty to their own family and make some return to their parents; for this is acceptable in the sight of God. 5She who is a real widow, and is left all alone, has set her hope on God and continues in supplications and prayers night and day; 6whereas she who is self-indulgent is dead even while she lives. 7Command this, so that they may be without reproach. 8If any one does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his own family, he has disowned the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. 9Let a widow be enrolled if she is not less than sixty years of age, having been the wife of one husband; 10and she must be well attested for her good deeds, as one who has brought up children, shown hospitality, washed the feet of the saints, relieved the afflicted, and devoted herself to doing good in every way.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    3Honor widows who are real widows. 4If a widow has children or grandchildren, let them first learn their religious duty to their own family and make some return to their parents; for this is acceptable in the sight of God. 5She who is a real widow, and is left all alone, has set her hope on God and continues in supplications and prayers night and day; 6whereas she who is self-indulgent is dead even while she lives. 7Command this, so that they may be without reproach. 8If any one does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his own family, he has disowned the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. 9Let a widow be enrolled if she is not less than sixty years of age, having been the wife of one husband; 10and she must be well attested for her good deeds, as one who has brought up children, shown hospitality, washed the feet of the saints, relieved the afflicted, and devoted herself to doing good in every way.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Psalms 31:4-5, 8-9, 20, 24-25

    3Yea, thou art my rock and my fortress; for thy name's sake lead me and guide me, 4take me out of the net which is hidden for me, for thou art my refuge. 7I will rejoice and be glad for thy steadfast love, because thou hast seen my affliction, thou hast taken heed of my adversities, 8and hast not delivered me into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a broad place. 19O how abundant is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for those who fear thee, and wrought for those who take refuge in thee, in the sight of the sons of men! 23Love the LORD, all you his saints! The LORD preserves the faithful, but abundantly requites him who acts haughtily. 24Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for the LORD!

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 25:31-40

    31"When the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. 32Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, 33and he will place the sheep at his right hand, but the goats at the left. 34Then the King will say to those at his right hand, `Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; 35for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.' 37Then the righteous will answer him, `Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink? 38And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee? 39And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee?' 40And the King will answer them, `Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.'

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Mal 3:19-20a

    Lo, the day is coming, blazing like an oven,
    when all the proud and all evildoers will be stubble,
    and the day that is coming will set them on fire,
    leaving them neither root nor branch,
    says the LORD of hosts.
    But for you who fear my name, there will arise
    the sun of justice with its healing rays.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 98:5-6, 7-8, 9

    R. (cf. 9)
    The Lord comes to rule the earth with justice.
    Sing praise to the LORD with the harp,
    with the harp and melodious song.
    With trumpets and the sound of the horn
    sing joyfully before the King, the LORD.
    R.The Lord comes to rule the earth with justice.
    Let the sea and what fills it resound,
    the world and those who dwell in it;
    let the rivers clap their hands,
    the mountains shout with them for joy.
    R.The Lord comes to rule the earth with justice.
    Before the LORD, for he comes,
    for he comes to rule the earth,
    He will rule the world with justice
    and the peoples with equity.
    R.The Lord comes to rule the earth with justice.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    2 Thes 3:7-12

    Brothers and sisters:
    You know how one must imitate us.
    For we did not act in a disorderly way among you,
    nor did we eat food received free from anyone.
    On the contrary, in toil and drudgery, night and day
    we worked, so as not to burden any of you.
    Not that we do not have the right.
    Rather, we wanted to present ourselves as a model for you,
    so that you might imitate us.
    In fact, when we were with you,
    we instructed you that if anyone was unwilling to work,
    neither should that one eat.
    We hear that some are conducting themselves among you in a
    disorderly way,
    by not keeping busy but minding the business of others.
    Such people we instruct and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ to work quietly
    and to eat their own food.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 21:5-19

    While some people were speaking about
    how the temple was adorned with costly stones and votive offerings,
    Jesus said, "All that you see here--
    the days will come when there will not be left
    a stone upon another stone that will not be thrown down."
    Then they asked him,
    "Teacher, when will this happen?
    And what sign will there be when all these things are about to happen?"
    He answered,
    "See that you not be deceived,
    for many will come in my name, saying,
    'I am he,’ and 'The time has come.’
    Do not follow them!
    When you hear of wars and insurrections,
    do not be terrified; for such things must happen first,
    but it will not immediately be the end."
    Then he said to them,
    "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.
    There will be powerful earthquakes, famines, and plagues
    from place to place;
    and awesome sights and mighty signs will come from the sky.
    "Before all this happens, however,
    they will seize and persecute you,
    they will hand you over to the synagogues and to prisons,
    and they will have you led before kings and governors
    because of my name.
    It will lead to your giving testimony.
    Remember, you are not to prepare your defense beforehand,
    for I myself shall give you a wisdom in speaking
    that all your adversaries will be powerless to resist or refute.
    You will even be handed over by parents, brothers, relatives, and friends,
    and they will put some of you to death.
    You will be hated by all because of my name,
    but not a hair on your head will be destroyed.
    By your perseverance you will secure your lives."
