    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 Peter 5:5-14

    5Likewise you that are younger be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for "God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble." 6Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that in due time he may exalt you. 7Cast all your anxieties on him, for he cares about you. 8Be sober, be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking some one to devour. 9Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experience of suffering is required of your brotherhood throughout the world. 10And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, establish, and strengthen you. 11To him be the dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 12By Silva'nus, a faithful brother as I regard him, I have written briefly to you, exhorting and declaring that this is the true grace of God; stand fast in it. 13She who is at Babylon, who is likewise chosen, sends you greetings; and so does my son Mark. 14Greet one another with the kiss of love. Peace to all of you that are in Christ.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 89:2-3, 6-7, 16-17

    1I will sing of thy steadfast love, O LORD, for ever; with my mouth I will proclaim thy faithfulness to all generations. 2For thy steadfast love was established for ever, thy faithfulness is firm as the heavens. 5Let the heavens praise thy wonders, O LORD, thy faithfulness in the assembly of the holy ones! 6For who in the skies can be compared to the LORD? Who among the heavenly beings is like the LORD, 15Blessed are the people who know the festal shout, who walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance, 16who exult in thy name all the day, and extol thy righteousness.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mark 16:15-20

    15And he said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation. 16He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover." 19So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. 20And they went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by the signs that attended it. Amen.

  • THURSDAY FOURTH WEEK OF EASTER 2013:

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    acts 13:13-25

    From Paphos, Paul and his companions
    set sail and arrived at Perga in Pamphylia.
    But John left them and returned to Jerusalem.
    They continued on from Perga and reached Antioch in Pisidia.
    On the sabbath they entered into the synagogue and took their seats.
    After the reading of the law and the prophets,
    the synagogue officials sent word to them,
    “My brothers, if one of you has a word of exhortation
    for the people, please speak.”

    So Paul got up, motioned with his hand, and said,
    “Fellow children of Israel and you others who are God-fearing, listen.
    The God of this people Israel chose our ancestors
    and exalted the people during their sojourn in the land of Egypt.
    With uplifted arm he led them out,
    and for about forty years he put up with them in the desert.
    When he had destroyed seven nations in the land of Canaan,
    he gave them their land as an inheritance
    at the end of about four hundred and fifty years.
    After these things he provided judges up to Samuel the prophet.
    Then they asked for a king.
    God gave them Saul, son of Kish,
    a man from the tribe of Benjamin, for forty years.
    Then he removed him and raised up David as their king;
    of him he testified,
    I have found David, son of Jesse, a man after my own heart;
    he will carry out my every wish
    .
    From this man’s descendants God, according to his promise,
    has brought to Israel a savior, Jesus.
    John heralded his coming by proclaiming a baptism of repentance
    to all the people of Israel;
    and as John was completing his course, he would say,
    ‘What do you suppose that I am? I am not he.
    Behold, one is coming after me;
    I am not worthy to unfasten the sandals of his feet.’“

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    ps 89:2-3, 21-22, 25 and 27

    R. (2) For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    The favors of the LORD I will sing forever;
    through all generations my mouth shall proclaim your faithfulness.
    For you have said, “My kindness is established forever”;
    in heaven you have confirmed your faithfulness.
    R. For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    “I have found David, my servant;
    with my holy oil I have anointed him,
    That my hand may be always with him,
    and that my arm may make him strong.”
    R. For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    “My faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him,
    and through my name shall his horn be exalted.
    He shall say of me, ‘You are my father,
    my God, the Rock, my savior.’”
    R. For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    jn 13:16-20

    When Jesus had washed the disciples’ feet, he said to them:
    “Amen, amen, I say to you, no slave is greater than his master
    nor any messenger greater than the one who sent him.
    If you understand this, blessed are you if you do it.
    I am not speaking of all of you.
    I know those whom I have chosen.
    But so that the Scripture might be fulfilled,
    The one who ate my food has raised his heel against me.
    From now on I am telling you before it happens,
    so that when it happens you may believe that I AM.
    Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever receives the one I send
    receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me.”
