    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    2 Cor 12:1-10

    Brothers and sisters:
    I must boast; not that it is profitable,
    but I will go on to visions and revelations of the Lord.
    I know a man in Christ who, fourteen years ago
    (whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows),
    was caught up to the third heaven.
    And I know that this man
    (whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows)
    was caught up into Paradise and heard ineffable things,
    which no one may utter.
    About this man I will boast,
    but about myself I will not boast, except about my weaknesses.
    Although if I should wish to boast, I would not be foolish,
    for I would be telling the truth.
    But I refrain, so that no one may think more of me
    than what he sees in me or hears from me
    because of the abundance of the revelations.
    Therefore, that I might not become too elated,
    a thorn in the flesh was given to me, an angel of Satan,
    to beat me, to keep me from being too elated.
    Three times I begged the Lord about this, that it might leave me,
    but he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you,
    for power is made perfect in weakness.”
    I will rather boast most gladly of my weaknesses,
    in order that the power of Christ may dwell with me.
    Therefore, I am content with weaknesses, insults,
    hardships, persecutions, and constraints,
    for the sake of Christ;
    for when I am weak, then I am strong.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 34:8-9, 10-11, 12-13

    R. (9a) Taste and see the goodness of the Lord.
    The angel of the LORD encamps
    around those who fear him, and delivers them.
    Taste and see how good the LORD is;
    blessed the man who takes refuge in him.
    R. Taste and see the goodness of the Lord.
    Fear the LORD, you his holy ones,
    for nought is lacking to those who fear him.
    The great grow poor and hungry;
    but those who seek the LORD want for no good thing.
    R. Taste and see the goodness of the Lord.
    Come, children, hear me;
    I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
    Which of you desires life,
    and takes delight in prosperous days?
    R. Taste and see the goodness of the Lord.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 6:24-34

    24"No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. 25"Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink, nor about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27And which of you by being anxious can add one cubit to his span of life? 28And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin; 29yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O men of little faith? 31Therefore do not be anxious, saying, `What shall we eat?' or `What shall we drink?' or `What shall we wear?' 32For the Gentiles seek all these things; and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well. 34"Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Let the day's own trouble be sufficient for the day.
