  • St. Luke, Evangelist 2013:

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    2 Tm 4:10-17b

    Beloved:
    Demas, enamored of the present world,
    deserted me and went to Thessalonica,
    Crescens to Galatia, and Titus to Dalmatia.
    Luke is the only one with me.
    Get Mark and bring him with you,
    for he is helpful to me in the ministry.
    I have sent Tychicus to Ephesus.
    When you come, bring the cloak I left with Carpus in Troas,
    the papyrus rolls, and especially the parchments.

    Alexander the coppersmith did me a great deal of harm;
    the Lord will repay him according to his deeds.
    You too be on guard against him,
    for he has strongly resisted our preaching.

    At my first defense no one appeared on my behalf,
    but everyone deserted me.
    May it not be held against them!
    But the Lord stood by me and gave me strength,
    so that through me the proclamation might be completed
    and all the Gentiles might hear it.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 145:10-11, 12-13, 17-18

    R. (12) Your friends make known, O Lord, the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.
    Let all your works give you thanks, O LORD,
    and let your faithful ones bless you.
    Let them discourse of the glory of your Kingdom
    and speak of your might.
    R. Your friends make known, O Lord, the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.
    Making known to men your might
    and the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.
    Your Kingdom is a Kingdom for all ages,
    and your dominion endures through all generations.
    R. Your friends make known, O Lord, the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.
    The LORD is just in all his ways
    and holy in all his works.
    The LORD is near to all who call upon him,
    to all who call upon him in truth.
    R. Your friends make known, O Lord, the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 10:1-9

    The Lord Jesus appointed seventy-two disciples
    whom he sent ahead of him in pairs
    to every town and place he intended to visit.
    He said to them,
    "The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few;
    so ask the master of the harvest
    to send out laborers for his harvest.
    Go on your way;
    behold, I am sending you like lambs among wolves.
    Carry no money bag, no sack, no sandals;
    and greet no one along the way.
    Into whatever house you enter,
    first say, 'Peace to this household.'
    If a peaceful person lives there,
    your peace will rest on him;
    but if not, it will return to you.
    Stay in the same house and eat and drink what is offered to you,
    for the laborer deserves payment.
    Do not move about from one house to another.
    Whatever town you enter and they welcome you,
    eat what is set before you,
    cure the sick in it and say to them,
    'The Kingdom of God is at hand for you.'"

  • FRIDAY TWENTY-EIGHTH WEEK OF ORDINARY TIME 2013:

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Rom 4:1-8

    Brothers and sisters:
    What can we say that Abraham found,
    our ancestor according to the flesh?
    Indeed, if Abraham was justified on the basis of his works,
    he has reason to boast;
    but this was not so in the sight of God.
    For what does the Scripture say?
    Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.
    A worker’s wage is credited not as a gift, but as something due.
    But when one does not work,
    yet believes in the one who justifies the ungodly,
    his faith is credited as righteousness.
    So also David declares the blessedness of the person
    to whom God credits righteousness apart from works:

    Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven
    and whose sins are covered.
    Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord does not record.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 32:1b-2, 5, 11

    R. (see 7) I turn to you, Lord, in time of trouble, and you fill me with the joy of salvation.
    Blessed is he whose fault is taken away,
    whose sin is covered.
    Blessed the man to whom the LORD imputes not guilt,
    in whose spirit there is no guile.
    R. I turn to you, Lord, in time of trouble, and you fill me with the joy of salvation.
    Then I acknowledged my sin to you,
    my guilt I covered not.
    I said, “I confess my faults to the LORD,”
    and you took away the guilt of my sin.
    R. I turn to you, Lord, in time of trouble, and you fill me with the joy of salvation.
    Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you just;
    exult, all you upright of heart.
    R. I turn to you, Lord, in time of trouble, and you fill me with the joy of salvation.

    Alleluia PS 33:22

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    May your kindness, O LORD, be upon us;
    who have put our hope in you.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 12:1-7

    At that time:
    So many people were crowding together
    that they were trampling one another underfoot.
    Jesus began to speak, first to his disciples,
    "Beware of the leaven--that is, the hypocrisy--of the Pharisees.

    "There is nothing concealed that will not be revealed,
    nor secret that will not be known.
    Therefore whatever you have said in the darkness
    will be heard in the light,
    and what you have whispered behind closed doors
    will be proclaimed on the housetops.
    I tell you, my friends,
    do not be afraid of those who kill the body
    but after that can do no more.
    I shall show you whom to fear.
    Be afraid of the one who after killing
    has the power to cast into Gehenna;
    yes, I tell you, be afraid of that one.
    Are not five sparrows sold for two small coins?
    Yet not one of them has escaped the notice of God.
    Even the hairs of your head have all been counted.
    Do not be afraid.
    You are worth more than many sparrows."
