    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 Corinthians 1:26-31

    26For consider your call, brethren; not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth; 27but God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise, God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong, 28God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, 29so that no human being might boast in the presence of God. 30He is the source of your life in Christ Jesus, whom God made our wisdom, our righteousness and sanctification and redemption; 31therefore, as it is written, "Let him who boasts, boast of the Lord."

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 23:1-6

    1The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want; 2he makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters; 3he restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me. 5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies; thou anointest my head with oil, my cup overflows. 6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 13:44-46

    44"The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up; then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. 45"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, 46who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Heb 5:1-10

    Brothers and sisters:
    Every high priest is taken from among men
    and made their representative before God,
    to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins.
    He is able to deal patiently with the ignorant and erring,
    for he himself is beset by weakness
    and so, for this reason, must make sin offerings for himself
    as well as for the people.
    No one takes this honor upon himself
    but only when called by God,
    just as Aaron was.
    In the same way,
    it was not Christ who glorified himself in becoming high priest,
    but rather the one who said to him:
    You are my Son:
    this day I have begotten you;

    just as he says in another place,
    You are a priest forever
    according to the order of Melchizedek.

    In the days when he was in the Flesh,
    he offered prayers and supplications with loud cries and tears
    to the one who was able to save him from death,
    and he was heard because of his reverence.
    Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered;
    and when he was made perfect,
    he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 110:1, 2, 3, 4

    R.(4b) You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.
    The LORD said to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand
    till I make your enemies your footstool.”
    R. You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.
    The scepter of your power the LORD will stretch forth from Zion:
    “Rule in the midst of your enemies.”
    R. You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.
    “Yours is princely power in the day of your birth, in holy splendor;
    before the daystar, like the dew, I have begotten you.”
    R. You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.
    The LORD has sworn, and he will not repent:
    “You are a priest forever, according to the order of Melchizedek.”
    R. You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mk 2:18-22

    The disciples of John and of the Pharisees were accustomed to fast.
    People came to Jesus and objected,
    "Why do the disciples of John and the disciples of the Pharisees fast,
    but your disciples do not fast?"
    Jesus answered them,
    "Can the wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them?
    As long as they have the bridegroom with them they cannot fast.
    But the days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them,
    and then they will fast on that day.
    No one sews a piece of unshrunken cloth on an old cloak.
    If he does, its fullness pulls away,
    the new from the old, and the tear gets worse.
    Likewise, no one pours new wine into old wineskins.
    Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins,
    and both the wine and the skins are ruined.
    Rather, new wine is poured into fresh wineskins."
