    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Hebrews 8:6-13

    6But as it is, Christ has obtained a ministry which is as much more excellent than the old as the covenant he mediates is better, since it is enacted on better promises.7For if that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no occasion for a second.8For he finds fault with them when he says: "The days will come, says the Lord, when I will establish a new covenant with the house of Israeland with the house of Judah;9not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the handto lead them out of the land of Egypt;for they did not continue in my covenant, and so I paid no heed to them, says the Lord.10This is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord:I will put my laws into their minds, and write them on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.11And they shall not teach every one his fellowor every one his brother, saying, `Know the Lord, 'for all shall know me, from the least of them to the greatest.12For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more."13In speaking of a new covenant he treats the first as obsolete. And what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 85:8, 10-14

    7Show us thy steadfast love, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation. 9Surely his salvation is at hand for those who fear him, that glory may dwell in our land. 10Steadfast love and faithfulness will meet; righteousness and peace will kiss each other. 11Faithfulness will spring up from the ground, and righteousness will look down from the sky. 12Yea, the LORD will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase. 13Righteousness will go before him, and make his footsteps a way.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mark 3:13-19

    13And he went up on the mountain, and called to him those whom he desired; and they came to him. 14And he appointed twelve, to be with him, and to be sent out to preach 15and have authority to cast out demons: 16Simon whom he surnamed Peter; 17James the son of Zeb'edee and John the brother of James, whom he surnamed Bo-aner'ges, that is, sons of thunder; 18Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Cananaean, 19and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him. Then he went home;

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    is 8:23-9:3

    First the Lord degraded the land of Zebulun
    and the land of Naphtali;
    but in the end he has glorified the seaward road,
    the land west of the Jordan,
    the District of the Gentiles.
    Anguish has taken wing, dispelled is darkness:
    for there is no gloom where but now there was distress.
    The people who walked in darkness
    have seen a great light;
    upon those who dwelt in the land of gloom
    a light has shone.
    You have brought them abundant joy
    and great rejoicing,
    as they rejoice before you as at the harvest,
    as people make merry when dividing spoils.
    For the yoke that burdened them,
    the pole on their shoulder,
    and the rod of their taskmaster
    you have smashed, as on the day of Midian.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    ps 27:1, 4, 13-14

    R/ (1a)
    The Lord is my light and my salvation.
    The LORD is my light and my salvation;
    whom should I fear?
    The LORD is my life’s refuge;
    of whom should I be afraid?
    R/
    The Lord is my light and my salvation.
    One thing I ask of the LORD;
    this I seek:
    To dwell in the house of the LORD
    all the days of my life,
    That I may gaze on the loveliness of the LORD
    and contemplate his temple.
    R/
    The Lord is my light and my salvation.
    I believe that I shall see the bounty of the LORD
    in the land of the living.
    Wait for the LORD with courage;
    be stouthearted, and wait for the LORD.
    R/
    The Lord is my light and my salvation.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 cor 1:10-13, 17

    I urge you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
    that all of you agree in what you say,
    and that there be no divisions among you,
    but that you be united in the same mind and in the same purpose.
    For it has been reported to me about you, my brothers and sisters,
    by Chloe’s people, that there are rivalries among you.
    I mean that each of you is saying,
    "I belong to Paul," or "I belong to Apollos,"
    or "I belong to Cephas," or "I belong to Christ."
    Is Christ divided?
    Was Paul crucified for you?
    Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?
    For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel,
    and not with the wisdom of human eloquence,
    so that the cross of Christ might not be emptied of its meaning.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    mt 4:12-23

    When Jesus heard that John had been arrested,
    he withdrew to Galilee.
    He left Nazareth and went to live in Capernaum by the sea,
    in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali,
    that what had been said through Isaiah the prophet
    might be fulfilled:
    Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali, the way to the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles, the people who sit in darkness have seen a great light, on those dwelling in a land overshadowed by death light has arisen.
    From that time on, Jesus began to preach and say,
    "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."
    As he was walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers,
    Simon who is called Peter, and his brother Andrew,
    casting a net into the sea; they were fishermen.
    He said to them,
    "Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men."
    At once they left their nets and followed him.
    He walked along from there and saw two other brothers,
    James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John.
    They were in a boat, with their father Zebedee, mending their nets.
    He called them, and immediately they left their boat and their father
    and followed him.
    He went around all of Galilee,
    teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom,
    and curing every disease and illness among the people.
