    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 Peter 4:12-19

    12Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal which comes upon you to prove you, as though something strange were happening to you. 13But rejoice in so far as you share Christ's sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. 14If you are reproached for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. 15But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or a wrongdoer, or a mischief-maker; 16yet if one suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but under that name let him glorify God. 17For the time has come for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18And "If the righteous man is scarcely saved, where will the impious and sinner appear?" 19Therefore let those who suffer according to God's will do right and entrust their souls to a faithful Creator.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 126:1-6

    1When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream. 2Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then they said among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them." 3The LORD has done great things for us; we are glad. 4Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like the watercourses in the Negeb! 5May those who sow in tears reap with shouts of joy! 6He that goes forth weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, shall come home with shouts of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Matthew 7:1-5

    1"Judge not, that you be not judged. 2For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. 3Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4Or how can you say to your brother, `Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when there is the log in your own eye? 5You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 10:34-39

    34"Do not think that I have come to bring peace on earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; 36and a man's foes will be those of his own household. 37He who loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and he who loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; 38and he who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. 39He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for my sake will find it.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Gn 15:1-12, 17-18

    The word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision:

    “Fear not, Abram!
    I am your shield;
    I will make your reward very great.”

    But Abram said,
    “O Lord GOD, what good will your gifts be,
    if I keep on being childless
    and have as my heir the steward of my house, Eliezer?”
    Abram continued,
    “See, you have given me no offspring,
    and so one of my servants will be my heir.”
    Then the word of the LORD came to him:
    “No, that one shall not be your heir;
    your own issue shall be your heir.”
    He took him outside and said:
    “Look up at the sky and count the stars, if you can.
    Just so,” he added, “shall your descendants be.”
    Abram put his faith in the LORD,
    who credited it to him as an act of righteousness.

    He then said to him,
    “I am the LORD who brought you from Ur of the Chaldeans
    to give you this land as a possession.”
    “O Lord GOD,” he asked,
    “how am I to know that I shall possess it?”
    He answered him,
    “Bring me a three-year-old heifer, a three-year-old she-goat,
    a three-year-old ram, a turtledove, and a young pigeon.”
    Abram brought him all these, split them in two,
    and placed each half opposite the other;
    but the birds he did not cut up.
    Birds of prey swooped down on the carcasses,
    but Abram stayed with them.
    As the sun was about to set, a trance fell upon Abram,
    and a deep, terrifying darkness enveloped him.

    When the sun had set and it was dark,
    there appeared a smoking fire pot and a flaming torch,
    which passed between those pieces.
    It was on that occasion that the LORD made a covenant with Abram,
    saying: “To your descendants I give this land,
    from the Wadi of Egypt to the Great River the Euphrates.”

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 105:1-2, 3-4, 6-7, 8-9

    proclaim all his wondrous deeds.
    R. The Lord remembers his covenant for ever.
    or:

    Glory in his holy name;
    rejoice, O hearts that seek the LORD!

    seek to serve him constantly.
    R. The Lord remembers his covenant for ever.
    or:

    sons of Jacob, his chosen ones!

    throughout the earth his judgments prevail.
    R. The Lord remembers his covenant for ever.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    He remembers forever his covenant
    which he made binding for a thousand generations—
    Which he entered into with Abraham
    and by his oath to Isaac.
    R. The Lord remembers his covenant for ever.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 7:15-20

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing,
    but underneath are ravenous wolves.
    By their fruits you will know them.
    Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?
    Just so, every good tree bears good fruit,
    and a rotten tree bears bad fruit.
    A good tree cannot bear bad fruit,
    nor can a rotten tree bear good fruit.
    Every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down
    and thrown into the fire.
    So by their fruits you will know them."
