    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Revelation 14:1-5

    1Then I looked, and lo, on Mount Zion stood the Lamb, and with him a hundred and forty-four thousand who had his name and his Father's name written on their foreheads. 2And I heard a voice from heaven like the sound of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder; the voice I heard was like the sound of harpers playing on their harps, 3and they sing a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and before the elders. No one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who had been redeemed from the earth. 4It is these who have not defiled themselves with women, for they are chaste; it is these who follow the Lamb wherever he goes; these have been redeemed from mankind as first fruits for God and the Lamb, 5and in their mouth no lie was found, for they are spotless.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 24:1-6

    1The earth is the LORD's and the fulness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein; 2for he has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the rivers. 3Who shall ascend the hill of the LORD? And who shall stand in his holy place? 4He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. 5He will receive blessing from the LORD, and vindication from the God of his salvation. 6Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek the face of the God of Jacob. [Selah]

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Luke 21:1-4

    1He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury; 2and he saw a poor widow put in two copper coins. 3And he said, "Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them; 4for they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all the living that she had."

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Rv 11:4-12

    I, John, heard a voice from heaven speak to me:
    Here are my two witnesses:
    These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands
    that stand before the Lord of the earth.
    If anyone wants to harm them, fire comes out of their mouths
    and devours their enemies.
    In this way, anyone wanting to harm them is sure to be slain.
    They have the power to close up the sky
    so that no rain can fall during the time of their prophesying.
    They also have power to turn water into blood
    and to afflict the earth with any plague as often as they wish.

    When they have finished their testimony,
    the beast that comes up from the abyss
    will wage war against them and conquer them and kill them.
    Their corpses will lie in the main street of the great city,
    which has the symbolic names 'Sodom' and 'Egypt,'
    where indeed their Lord was crucified.
    Those from every people, tribe, tongue, and nation
    will gaze on their corpses for three and a half days,
    and they will not allow their corpses to be buried.
    The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them
    and be glad and exchange gifts
    because these two prophets tormented the inhabitants of the earth.
    But after the three and a half days,
    a breath of life from God entered them.
    When they stood on their feet, great fear fell on those who saw them.
    Then they heard a loud voice from heaven say to them, "Come up here."
    So they went up to heaven in a cloud as their enemies looked on.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 144:1, 2, 9-10

    R. (1b) Blessed be the Lord, my Rock!
    Blessed be the LORD, my rock,
    who trains my hands for battle, my fingers for war.
    R. Blessed be the Lord, my Rock!
    My mercy and my fortress,
    my stronghold, my deliverer,
    My shield, in whom I trust,
    who subdues my people under me.
    R. Blessed be the Lord, my Rock!
    O God, I will sing a new song to you;
    with a ten stringed lyre I will chant your praise,
    You who give victory to kings,
    and deliver David, your servant from the evil sword.
    R. Blessed be the Lord, my Rock!

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 20:27-40

    Some Sadducees, those who deny that there is a resurrection,
    came forward and put this question to Jesus, saying,
    "Teacher, Moses wrote for us,
    If someone's brother dies leaving a wife but no child,
    his brother must take the wife
    and raise up descendants for his brother.
    Now there were seven brothers;
    the first married a woman but died childless.
    Then the second and the third married her,
    and likewise all the seven died childless.
    Finally the woman also died.
    Now at the resurrection whose wife will that woman be?
    For all seven had been married to her."
    Jesus said to them,
    "The children of this age marry and remarry;
    but those who are deemed worthy to attain to the coming age
    and to the resurrection of the dead
    neither marry nor are given in marriage.
    They can no longer die,
    for they are like angels;
    and they are the children of God
    because they are the ones who will rise.
    That the dead will rise
    even Moses made known in the passage about the bush,
    when he called 'Lord'
    the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob;
    and he is not God of the dead, but of the living,
    for to him all are alive."
    Some of the scribes said in reply,
    "Teacher, you have answered well."
    And they no longer dared to ask him anything.
