    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    jas 5:1-6

    Come now, you rich, weep and wail over your impending miseries.
    Your wealth has rotted away, your clothes have become moth-eaten,
    your gold and silver have corroded,
    and that corrosion will be a testimony against you;
    it will devour your flesh like a fire.
    You have stored up treasure for the last days.
    Behold, the wages you withheld from the workers
    who harvested your fields are crying aloud;
    and the cries of the harvesters
    have reached the ears of the Lord of hosts.
    You have lived on earth in luxury and pleasure;
    you have fattened your hearts for the day of slaughter.
    You have condemned;
    you have murdered the righteous one;
    he offers you no resistance.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    ps 49:14-15ab, 15cd-16, 17-18, 19-20

    R. (Matthew 5:3) Blessed are the poor in spirit;the Kingdom of heaven is theirs!
    This is the way of those whose trust is folly,
    the end of those contented with their lot:
    Like sheep they are herded into the nether world;
    death is their shepherd and the upright rule over them.
    R. Blessed are the poor in spirit;the Kingdom of heaven is theirs!
    Quickly their form is consumed;
    the nether world is their palace.
    But God will redeem me
    from the power of the nether world by receiving me.
    R. Blessed are the poor in spirit;the Kingdom of heaven is theirs!
    Fear not when a man grows rich,
    when the wealth of his house becomes great,
    For when he dies, he shall take none of it;
    his wealth shall not follow him down.
    R. Blessed are the poor in spirit;the Kingdom of heaven is theirs!
    Though in his lifetime he counted himself blessed,
    “They will praise you for doing well for yourself,”
    He shall join the circle of his forebears
    who shall never more see light.
    R. Blessed are the poor in spirit;the Kingdom of heaven is theirs!

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    mk 9:41-50

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “Anyone who gives you a cup of water to drink
    because you belong to Christ,
    amen, I say to you, will surely not lose his reward.

    “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin,
    it would be better for him if a great millstone
    were put around his neck
    and he were thrown into the sea.
    If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off.
    It is better for you to enter into life maimed
    than with two hands to go into Gehenna,
    into the unquenchable fire.
    And if your foot causes you to sin, cut if off.
    It is better for you to enter into life crippled
    than with two feet to be thrown into Gehenna.
    And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out.
    Better for you to enter into the Kingdom of God with one eye
    than with two eyes to be thrown into Gehenna,
    where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.

    “Everyone will be salted with fire.
    Salt is good, but if salt becomes insipid,
    with what will you restore its flavor?
    Keep salt in yourselves and you will have peace with one another.”
