    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Rv 21:9b-14

    The angel spoke to me, saying,
    "Come here.
    I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb."
    He took me in spirit to a great, high mountain
    and showed me the holy city Jerusalem
    coming down out of heaven from God.
    It gleamed with the splendor of God.
    Its radiance was like that of a precious stone,
    like jasper, clear as crystal.
    It had a massive, high wall,
    with twelve gates where twelve angels were stationed
    and on which names were inscribed,
    the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel.
    There were three gates facing east,
    three north, three south, and three west.
    The wall of the city had twelve courses of stones as its foundation,
    on which were inscribed the twelve names
    of the twelve Apostles of the Lamb.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 145:10-11, 12-13, 17-18

    R. (12) Your friends make known, O Lord, the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.
    Let all your works give you thanks, O LORD,
    and let your faithful ones bless you.
    Let them discourse of the glory of your Kingdom
    and speak of your might.
    R. Your friends make known, O Lord, the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.
    Making known to men your might
    and the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.
    Your Kingdom is a Kingdom for all ages,
    and your dominion endures through all generations.
    R. Your friends make known, O Lord, the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.
    The LORD is just in all his ways
    and holy in all his works.
    The LORD is near to all who call upon him,
    to all who call upon him in truth.
    R. Your friends make known, O Lord, the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 1:45-51

    Philip found Nathanael and told him,
    "We have found the one about whom Moses wrote in the law,
    and also the prophets, Jesus son of Joseph, from Nazareth."
    But Nathanael said to him,
    "Can anything good come from Nazareth?"
    Philip said to him, "Come and see."
    Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said of him,
    "Here is a true child of Israel.
    There is no duplicity in him."
    Nathanael said to him, "How do you know me?"
    Jesus answered and said to him,
    "Before Philip called you, I saw you under the fig tree."
    Nathanael answered him,
    "Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel."
    Jesus answered and said to him,
    "Do you believe
    because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree?
    You will see greater things than this."
    And he said to him, "Amen, amen, I say to you,
    you will see heaven opened and the angels of God
    ascending and descending on the Son of Man."

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Ru 2:1-3, 8-11; 4:13-17

    Naomi had a prominent kinsman named Boaz,
    of the clan of her husband Elimelech.
    Ruth the Moabite said to Naomi,
    “Let me go and glean ears of grain in the field
    of anyone who will allow me that favor.”
    Naomi said to her, “Go, my daughter,” and she went.
    The field she entered to glean after the harvesters
    happened to be the section belonging to Boaz
    of the clan of Elimelech.

    Boaz said to Ruth, “Listen, my daughter!
    Do not go to glean in anyone else’s field;
    you are not to leave here.
    Stay here with my women servants.
    Watch to see which field is to be harvested, and follow them;
    I have commanded the young men to do you no harm.
    When you are thirsty, you may go and drink from the vessels
    the young men have filled.”
    Casting herself prostrate upon the ground, Ruth said to him,
    “Why should I, a foreigner, be favored with your notice?”
    Boaz answered her:
    “I have had a complete account of what you have done
    for your mother-in-law after your husband’s death;
    you have left your father and your mother and the land of your birth,
    and have come to a people whom you did not know previously.”

    Boaz took Ruth.
    When they came together as man and wife,
    the LORD enabled her to conceive and she bore a son.
    Then the women said to Naomi,
    “Blessed is the LORD who has not failed
    to provide you today with an heir!
    May he become famous in Israel!
    He will be your comfort and the support of your old age,
    for his mother is the daughter-in-law who loves you.
    She is worth more to you than seven sons!”
    Naomi took the child, placed him on her lap, and became his nurse.
    And the neighbor women gave him his name,
    at the news that a grandson had been born to Naomi.
    They called him Obed.
    He was the father of Jesse, the father of David.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 128:1b-2, 3, 4, 5

    R. (4) See how the Lord blesses those who fear him.
    Blessed are you who fear the LORD,
    who walk in his ways!
    For you shall eat the fruit of your handiwork;
    blessed shall you be, and favored.
    R. See how the Lord blesses those who fear him.
    You wife shall be like a fruitful vine
    in the recesses of your home;
    Your children like olive plants
    around your table.
    R. See how the Lord blesses those who fear him.
    Behold, thus is the man blessed
    who fears the LORD.
    R. See how the Lord blesses those who fear him.
    The LORD bless you from Zion:
    may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem
    all the days of your life.
    R. See how the Lord blesses those who fear him.

    Alleluia Mt 23:9b, 10b

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    You have but one Father in heaven;
    you have but one master, the Christ.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 23:1-12

    Jesus spoke to the crowds and to his disciples, saying,
    "The scribes and the Pharisees
    have taken their seat on the chair of Moses.
    Therefore, do and observe all things whatsoever they tell you,
    but do not follow their example.
    For they preach but they do not practice.
    They tie up heavy burdens hard to carry
    and lay them on people's shoulders,
    but they will not lift a finger to move them.
    All their works are performed to be seen.
    They widen their phylacteries and lengthen their tassels.
    They love places of honor at banquets, seats of honor in synagogues,
    greetings in marketplaces, and the salutation 'Rabbi.'
    As for you, do not be called 'Rabbi.'
    You have but one teacher, and you are all brothers.
    Call no one on earth your father;
    you have but one Father in heaven.
    Do not be called 'Master';
    you have but one master, the Christ.
    The greatest among you must be your servant.
    Whoever exalts himself will be humbled;
    but whoever humbles himself will be exalted."
