    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Wisdom 7:7-10, 15-16

    7Therefore I prayed, and understanding was given me; I called upon God, and the spirit of wisdom came to me. 8I preferred her to scepters and thrones, and I accounted wealth as nothing in comparison with her. 9Neither did I liken to her any priceless gem, because all gold is but a little sand in her sight, and silver will be accounted as clay before her. 10I loved her more than health and beauty, and I chose to have her rather than light, because her radiance never ceases. 15May God grant that I speak with judgment and have thought worthy of what I have received, for he is the guide even of wisdom and the corrector of the wise. 16For both we and our words are in his hand, as are all understanding and skill in crafts.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 119:9-14

    9How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to thy word. 10With my whole heart I seek thee; let me not wander from thy commandments! 11I have laid up thy word in my heart, that I might not sin against thee. 12Blessed be thou, O LORD; teach me thy statutes! 13With my lips I declare all the ordinances of thy mouth. 14In the way of thy testimonies I delight as much as in all riches.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 23:8-12

    8But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brethren. 9And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven. 10Neither be called masters, for you have one master, the Christ. 11He who is greatest among you shall be your servant; 12whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.

  • FRIDAY THIRD WEEK OF ORDINARY TIME 2011:

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Heb 10:32-39

    Remember the days past when, after you had been enlightened,
    you endured a great contest of suffering.
    At times you were publicly exposed to abuse and affliction;
    at other times you associated yourselves with those so treated.
    You even joined in the sufferings of those in prison
    and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property,
    knowing that you had a better and lasting possession.
    Therefore, do not throw away your confidence;
    it will have great recompense.
    You need endurance to do the will of God and receive what he has promised.

    For, after just a brief moment,
    he who is to come shall come;
    he shall not delay.
    But my just one shall live by faith,
    and if he draws back I take no pleasure in him.


    We are not among those who draw back and perish,
    but among those who have faith and will possess life.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 37:3-4, 5-6, 23-24, 39-40

    R. (39a) The salvation of the just comes from the Lord.
    Trust in the LORD and do good,
    that you may dwell in the land and be fed in security.
    Take delight in the LORD,
    and he will grant you your heart’s requests.
    R. The salvation of the just comes from the Lord.
    Commit to the LORD your way;
    trust in him, and he will act.
    He will make justice dawn for you like the light;
    bright as the noonday shall be your vindication.
    R. The salvation of the just comes from the Lord.
    By the LORD are the steps of a man made firm,
    and he approves his way.
    Though he fall, he does not lie prostrate,
    for the hand of the LORD sustains him.
    R. The salvation of the just comes from the Lord.
    The salvation of the just is from the LORD;
    he is their refuge in time of distress.
    And the LORD helps them and delivers them;
    he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
    because they take refuge in him.
    R. The salvation of the just comes from the Lord.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    mk 4:26-34

    Jesus said to the crowds:
    “This is how it is with the Kingdom of God;
    it is as if a man were to scatter seed on the land
    and would sleep and rise night and day
    and the seed would sprout and grow,
    he knows not how.
    Of its own accord the land yields fruit,
    first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear.
    And when the grain is ripe, he wields the sickle at once,
    for the harvest has come.”

    He said,
    “To what shall we compare the Kingdom of God,
    or what parable can we use for it?
    It is like a mustard seed that, when it is sown in the ground,
    is the smallest of all the seeds on the earth.
    But once it is sown, it springs up and becomes the largest of plants
    and puts forth large branches,
    so that the birds of the sky can dwell in its shade.”
    With many such parables
    he spoke the word to them as they were able to understand it.
    Without parables he did not speak to them,
    but to his own disciples he explained everything in private.
