    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.

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    2 kgs 11:1-4, 9-18, 20

    When Athaliah, the mother of Ahaziah,
    saw that her son was dead,
    she began to kill off the whole royal family.
    But Jehosheba, daughter of King Jehoram and sister of Ahaziah,
    took Joash, his son, and spirited him away, along with his nurse,
    from the bedroom where the princes were about to be slain.
    She concealed him from Athaliah, and so he did not die.
    For six years he remained hidden in the temple of the LORD,
    while Athaliah ruled the land.

    But in the seventh year,
    Jehoiada summoned the captains of the Carians
    and of the guards.
    He had them come to him in the temple of the LORD,
    exacted from them a sworn commitment,
    and then showed them the king’s son.

    The captains did just as Jehoiada the priest commanded.
    Each one with his men, both those going on duty for the sabbath
    and those going off duty that week,
    came to Jehoiada the priest.
    He gave the captains King David’s spears and shields,
    which were in the temple of the LORD.
    And the guards, with drawn weapons,
    lined up from the southern to the northern limit of the enclosure,
    surrounding the altar and the temple on the king’s behalf.
    Then Jehoiada led out the king’s son
    and put the crown and the insignia upon him.
    They proclaimed him king and anointed him,
    clapping their hands and shouting, “Long live the king!”

    Athaliah heard the noise made by the people,
    and appeared before them in the temple of the LORD.
    When she saw the king standing by the pillar, as was the custom,
    and the captains and trumpeters near him,
    with all the people of the land rejoicing and blowing trumpets,
    she tore her garments and cried out, “Treason, treason!”
    Then Jehoiada the priest instructed the captains
    in command of the force:
    “Bring her outside through the ranks.
    If anyone follows her,” he added, “let him die by the sword.”
    He had given orders that she
    should not be slain in the temple of the LORD.
    She was led out forcibly to the horse gate of the royal palace,
    where she was put to death.

    Then Jehoiada made a covenant between the LORD as one party
    and the king and the people as the other,
    by which they would be the LORD’s people;
    and another covenant, between the king and the people.
    Thereupon all the people of the land went to the temple of Baal
    and demolished it.
    They shattered its altars and images completely,
    and slew Mattan, the priest of Baal, before the altars.
    Jehoiada appointed a detachment for the temple of the LORD.
    All the people of the land rejoiced and the city was quiet,
    now that Athaliah had been slain with the sword
    at the royal palace.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    ps 132:11, 12, 13-14, 17-18

    R. (13) The Lord has chosen Zion for his dwelling.
    The LORD swore to David
    a firm promise from which he will not withdraw:
    “Your own offspring
    I will set upon your throne.”
    R. The Lord has chosen Zion for his dwelling.
    “If your sons keep my covenant
    and the decrees which I shall teach them,
    Their sons, too, forever
    shall sit upon your throne.”
    R. The Lord has chosen Zion for his dwelling.
    For the LORD has chosen Zion;
    he prefers her for his dwelling.
    “Zion is my resting place forever;
    in her will I dwell, for I prefer her.”
    R. The Lord has chosen Zion for his dwelling.
    “In her will I make a horn to sprout forth for David;
    I will place a lamp for my anointed.
    His enemies I will clothe with shame,
    but upon him my crown shall shine.”
    R. The Lord has chosen Zion for his dwelling.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    mt 6:19-23

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth,
    where moth and decay destroy, and thieves break in and steal.
    But store up treasures in heaven,
    where neither moth nor decay destroys, nor thieves break in and steal.
    For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.

    “The lamp of the body is the eye.
    If your eye is sound, your whole body will be filled with light;
    but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be in darkness.
    And if the light in you is darkness, how great will the darkness be.”
