  • The Conversion of Saint Paul 2011:

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 9:1-22

    Saul, still breathing murderous threats against the disciples of the Lord,
    went to the high priest and asked him
    for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, that,
    if he should find any men or women who belonged to the Way,
    he might bring them back to Jerusalem in chains.
    On his journey, as he was nearing Damascus,
    a light from the sky suddenly flashed around him.
    He fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him,
    "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?"
    He said, "Who are you, sir?"
    The reply came, "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.
    Now get up and go into the city and you will be told what you must do."
    The men who were traveling with him stood speechless,
    for they heard the voice but could see no one.
    Saul got up from the ground,
    but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing;
    so they led him by the hand and brought him to Damascus.
    For three days he was unable to see, and he neither ate nor drank.

    There was a disciple in Damascus named Ananias,
    and the Lord said to him in a vision, Ananias."
    He answered, "Here I am, Lord."
    The Lord said to him, "Get up and go to the street called Straight
    and ask at the house of Judas for a man from Tarsus named Saul.
    He is there praying,
    and in a vision he has seen a man named Ananias
    come in and lay his hands on him,
    that he may regain his sight."
    But Ananias replied,
    "Lord, I have heard from many sources about this man,
    what evil things he has done to your holy ones in Jerusalem.
    And here he has authority from the chief priests
    to imprison all who call upon your name."
    But the Lord said to him,
    "Go, for this man is a chosen instrument of mine
    to carry my name before Gentiles, kings, and children of Israel,
    and I will show him what he will have to suffer for my name."
    So Ananias went and entered the house;
    laying his hands on him, he said,
    "Saul, my brother, the Lord has sent me,
    Jesus who appeared to you on the way by which you came,
    that you may regain your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit."
    Immediately things like scales fell from his eyes
    and he regained his sight.
    He got up and was baptized,
    and when he had eaten, he recovered his strength.

    He stayed some days with the disciples in Damascus,
    and he began at once to proclaim Jesus in the synagogues,
    that he is the Son of God.
    All who heard him were astounded and said,
    "Is not this the man who in Jerusalem
    ravaged those who call upon this name,
    and came here expressly to take them back in chains
    to the chief priests?"
    But Saul grew all the stronger
    and confounded the Jews who lived in Damascus,
    proving that this is the Christ.

    Ps 117:1bc, 2

    R. (Mark 16:15) Go out to all the world and tell the Good News.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mk 16:15-18

    Jesus appeared to the Eleven and said to them:
    "Go into the whole world
    and proclaim the Gospel to every creature.
    Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved;
    whoever does not believe will be condemned.
    These signs will accompany those who believe:
    in my name they will drive out demons,
    they will speak new languages.
    They will pick up serpents with their hands,
    and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not harm them.
    They will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."

  • TUESDAY THIRD WEEK OF ORDINARY TIME 2011:

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Heb 10:1-10

    Brothers and sisters:
    Since the law has only a shadow of the good things to come,
    and not the very image of them, it can never make perfect
    those who come to worship by the same sacrifices
    that they offer continually each year.
    Otherwise, would not the sacrifices have ceased to be offered,
    since the worshipers, once cleansed, would no longer
    have had any consciousness of sins?
    But in those sacrifices there is only a yearly remembrance of sins,
    for it is impossible that the blood of bulls and goats
    take away sins.
    For this reason, when he came into the world, he said:

    Sacrifice and offering you did not desire,
    but a body you prepared for me;
    in burnt offerings and sin offerings you took no delight.
    Then I said, As is written of me in the scroll,
    Behold, I come to do your will, O God.


    First he says, Sacrifices and offerings,
    burnt offerings and sin offerings,
    you neither desired nor delighted in.

    These are offered according to the law.
    Then he says, Behold, I come to do your will.
    He takes away the first to establish the second.
    By this “will,” we have been consecrated
    through the offering of the Body of Jesus Christ once for all.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    ps 40:2 and 4ab, 7-8a, 10, 11

    R. (8a and 9a) Here am I Lord; I come to do your will.
    I have waited, waited for the LORD,
    and he stooped toward me.
    And he put a new song into my mouth,
    a hymn to our God.
    R. Here am I Lord; I come to do your will.
    Sacrifice or oblation you wished not,
    but ears open to obedience you gave me.
    Burnt offerings or sin-offerings you sought not;
    then said I, “Behold I come.”
    R. Here am I Lord; I come to do your will.
    I announced your justice in the vast assembly;
    I did not restrain my lips, as you, O LORD, know.
    R. Here am I Lord; I come to do your will.
    Your justice I kept not hid within my heart;
    your faithfulness and your salvation I have spoken of;
    I have made no secret of your kindness and your truth
    in the vast assembly.
    R. Here am I Lord; I come to do your will.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mk 3:31-35

    The mother of Jesus and his brothers arrived at the house.
    Standing outside, they sent word to Jesus and called him.
    A crowd seated around him told him,
    "Your mother and your brothers and your sisters
    are outside asking for you."
    But he said to them in reply,
    "Who are my mother and my brothers?"
    And looking around at those seated in the circle he said,
    "Here are my mother and my brothers.
    For whoever does the will of God
    is my brother and sister and mother."
