    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.

  • MONDAY THIRD WEEK OF ORDINARY TIME 2013:

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Heb 9:15, 24-28

    Christ is mediator of a new covenant:
    since a death has taken place
    for deliverance from transgressions under the first covenant,
    those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance.

    For Christ did not enter into a sanctuary made by hands,
    a copy of the true one, but heaven itself,
    that he might now appear before God on our behalf.
    Not that he might offer himself repeatedly,
    as the high priest enters each year into the sanctuary
    with blood that is not his own;
    if that were so, he would have had to suffer repeatedly
    from the foundation of the world.
    But now once for all he has appeared at the end of the ages
    to take away sin by his sacrifice.
    Just as it is appointed that human beings die once,
    and after this the judgment, so also Christ,
    offered once to take away the sins of many,
    will appear a second time, not to take away sin
    but to bring salvation to those who eagerly await him.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 98:1, 2-3ab, 3cd-4, 5-6

    R. (1a) Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous deeds.
    Sing to the LORD a new song,
    for he has done wondrous deeds;
    His right hand has won victory for him,
    his holy arm.
    R. Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous deeds.
    The LORD has made his salvation known:
    in the sight of the nations he has revealed his justice.
    He has remembered his kindness and his faithfulness
    toward the house of Israel.
    R. Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous deeds.
    All the ends of the earth have seen
    the salvation by our God.
    Sing joyfully to the LORD, all you lands;
    break into song; sing praise.
    R. Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous deeds.
    Sing praise to the LORD with the harp,
    with the harp and melodious song.
    With trumpets and the sound of the horn
    sing joyfully before the King, the LORD.
    R. Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous deeds.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mk 3:22-30

    The scribes who had come from Jerusalem said of Jesus,
    "He is possessed by Beelzebul," and
    "By the prince of demons he drives out demons."

    Summoning them, he began to speak to them in parables,
    "How can Satan drive out Satan?
    If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
    And if a house is divided against itself,
    that house will not be able to stand.
    And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided,
    he cannot stand;
    that is the end of him.
    But no one can enter a strong man's house to plunder his property
    unless he first ties up the strong man.
    Then he can plunder his house.
    Amen, I say to you, all sins and all blasphemies
    that people utter will be forgiven them.
    But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit
    will never have forgiveness,
    but is guilty of an everlasting sin."
    For they had said, "He has an unclean spirit."
