    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Ephesians 3:14-21

    14For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with might through his Spirit in the inner man, 17and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18may have power to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fulness of God. 20Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, 21to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 33:1-2, 4-5, 11-12, 18-19

    1Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous! Praise befits the upright. 2Praise the LORD with the lyre, make melody to him with the harp of ten strings! 4For the word of the LORD is upright; and all his work is done in faithfulness. 5He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the steadfast love of the LORD. 11The counsel of the LORD stands for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations. 12Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage! 18Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love, 19that he may deliver their soul from death, and keep them alive in famine.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Luke 12:49-53

    49"I came to cast fire upon the earth; and would that it were already kindled! 50I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how I am constrained until it is accomplished! 51Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division; 52for henceforth in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three; 53they will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against her mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law."

  • TUESDAY TWENTY-NINTH WEEK OF ORDINARY TIME 2012:

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Eph 2:12-22

    Brothers and sisters:
    You were at that time without Christ,
    alienated from the community of Israel
    and strangers to the covenants of promise,
    without hope and without God in the world.
    But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off
    have become near by the Blood of Christ.

    For he is our peace, he made both one
    and broke down the dividing wall of enmity, through his Flesh,
    abolishing the law with its commandments and legal claims,
    that he might create in himself one new person in place of the two,
    thus establishing peace,
    and might reconcile both with God,
    in one Body, through the cross,
    putting that enmity to death by it.
    He came and preached peace to you who were far off
    and peace to those who were near,
    for through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father.

    So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners,
    but you are fellow citizens with the holy ones
    and members of the household of God,
    built upon the foundation of the Apostles and prophets,
    with Christ Jesus himself as the capstone.
    Through him the whole structure is held together
    and grows into a temple sacred in the Lord;
    in him you also are being built together
    into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 85:9ab-10, 11-12, 13-14

    R. (see 9) The Lord speaks of peace to his people.
    I will hear what God proclaims;
    the LORD--for he proclaims peace.
    Near indeed is his salvation to those who fear him,
    glory dwelling in our land.
    R. The Lord speaks of peace to his people.
    Kindness and truth shall meet;
    justice and peace shall kiss.
    Truth shall spring out of the earth,
    and justice shall look down from heaven.
    R. The Lord speaks of peace to his people.
    The LORD himself will give his benefits;
    our land shall yield its increase.
    Justice shall walk before him,
    and salvation, along the way of his steps.
    R. The Lord speaks of peace to his people.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 12:35-38

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    "Gird your loins and light your lamps
    and be like servants who await their master's return from a wedding,
    ready to open immediately when he comes and knocks.
    Blessed are those servants
    whom the master finds vigilant on his arrival.
    Amen, I say to you, he will gird himself,
    have them recline at table, and proceed to wait on them.
    And should he come in the second or third watch
    and find them prepared in this way,
    blessed are those servants."
