    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Ephesians 3:8-12

    8To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, 9and to make all men see what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things; 10that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places. 11This was according to the eternal purpose which he has realized in Christ Jesus our Lord, 12in whom we have boldness and confidence of access through our faith in him.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 37:3-6, 30-31

    3Trust in the LORD, and do good; so you will dwell in the land, and enjoy security. 4Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. 5Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will act. 6He will bring forth your vindication as the light, and your right as the noonday. 30The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks justice. 31The law of his God is in his heart; his steps do not slip.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    John 15:9-17

    9As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you; abide in my love. 10If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love. 11These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. 12"This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 14You are my friends if you do what I command you. 15No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. 16You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide; so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. 17This I command you, to love one another.

  • MONDAY THIRD WEEK OF ORDINARY TIME 2011:

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Heb 9:15, 24-28

    Christ is mediator of a new covenant:
    since a death has taken place
    for deliverance from transgressions under the first covenant,
    those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance.

    For Christ did not enter into a sanctuary made by hands,
    a copy of the true one, but heaven itself,
    that he might now appear before God on our behalf.
    Not that he might offer himself repeatedly,
    as the high priest enters each year into the sanctuary
    with blood that is not his own;
    if that were so, he would have had to suffer repeatedly
    from the foundation of the world.
    But now once for all he has appeared at the end of the ages
    to take away sin by his sacrifice.
    Just as it is appointed that human beings die once,
    and after this the judgment, so also Christ,
    offered once to take away the sins of many,
    will appear a second time, not to take away sin
    but to bring salvation to those who eagerly await him.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 98:1, 2-3ab, 3cd-4, 5-6

    R. (1a) Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous deeds.
    Sing to the LORD a new song,
    for he has done wondrous deeds;
    His right hand has won victory for him,
    his holy arm.
    R. Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous deeds.
    The LORD has made his salvation known:
    in the sight of the nations he has revealed his justice.
    He has remembered his kindness and his faithfulness
    toward the house of Israel.
    R. Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous deeds.
    All the ends of the earth have seen
    the salvation by our God.
    Sing joyfully to the LORD, all you lands;
    break into song; sing praise.
    R. Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous deeds.
    Sing praise to the LORD with the harp,
    with the harp and melodious song.
    With trumpets and the sound of the horn
    sing joyfully before the King, the LORD.
    R. Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous deeds.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mk 3:22-30

    The scribes who had come from Jerusalem said of Jesus,
    "He is possessed by Beelzebul," and
    "By the prince of demons he drives out demons."

    Summoning them, he began to speak to them in parables,
    "How can Satan drive out Satan?
    If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
    And if a house is divided against itself,
    that house will not be able to stand.
    And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided,
    he cannot stand;
    that is the end of him.
    But no one can enter a strong man's house to plunder his property
    unless he first ties up the strong man.
    Then he can plunder his house.
    Amen, I say to you, all sins and all blasphemies
    that people utter will be forgiven them.
    But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit
    will never have forgiveness,
    but is guilty of an everlasting sin."
    For they had said, "He has an unclean spirit."
