    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    GN 16:6b-12, 15-16

    
Abram told Sarai: “Your maid is in your power.
    Do to her whatever you please.”
    Sarai then abused her so much that Hagar ran away from her.

    The LORD’s messenger found her by a spring in the wilderness,
    the spring on the road to Shur, and he asked,
    “Hagar, maid of Sarai, where have you come from
    and where are you going?”
    She answered, “I am running away from my mistress, Sarai.”
    But the LORD’s messenger told her:
    “Go back to your mistress and submit to her abusive treatment.
    I will make your descendants so numerous,” added the LORD’s messenger,
    “that they will be too many to count.
    Besides,” the LORD’s messenger said to her:

    “You are now pregnant and shall bear a son;
    you shall name him Ishmael,
    For the LORD has heard you,
    God has answered you.

    This one shall be a wild ass of a man,
    his hand against everyone,
    and everyone’s hand against him;
    In opposition to all his kin
    shall he encamp.”

    Hagar bore Abram a son,
    and Abram named the son whom Hagar bore him Ishmael.
    Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar bore him Ishmael.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 7:21-29

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,'
    will enter the Kingdom of heaven,
    but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.
    Many will say to me on that day,
    'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name?
    Did we not drive out demons in your name?
    Did we not do mighty deeds in your name?'
    Then I will declare to them solemnly,
    'I never knew you. Depart from me, you evildoers.'

    "Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them
    will be like a wise man who built his house on rock.
    The rain fell, the floods came,
    and the winds blew and buffeted the house.
    But it did not collapse; it had been set solidly on rock.
    And everyone who listens to these words of mine
    but does not act on them
    will be like a fool who built his house on sand.
    The rain fell, the floods came,
    and the winds blew and buffeted the house.
    And it collapsed and was completely ruined."

    When Jesus finished these words,
    the crowds were astonished at his teaching,
    for he taught them as one having authority,
    and not as their scribes.
