    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 John 1:5--2:2

    15This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light and in him is no darkness at all. 6If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not live according to the truth; 7but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. 8If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just, and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.21My little children, I am writing this to you so that you may not sin; but if any one does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; 2and he is the expiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 103:1-4, 8-9, 13-14, 17-18

    1Bless the LORD, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless his holy name! 2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, 3who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, 4who redeems your life from the Pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, 8The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. 9He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger for ever. 13As a father pities his children, so the LORD pities those who fear him. 14For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust. 17But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon those who fear him, and his righteousness to children's children, 18to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    John 12:44-50

    44And Jesus cried out and said, "He who believes in me, believes not in me but in him who sent me. 45And he who sees me sees him who sent me. 46I have come as light into the world, that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness. 47If any one hears my sayings and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. 48He who rejects me and does not receive my sayings has a judge; the word that I have spoken will be his judge on the last day. 49For I have not spoken on my own authority; the Father who sent me has himself given me commandment what to say and what to speak. 50And I know that his commandment is eternal life. What I say, therefore, I say as the Father has bidden me."

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 11:25-30

    25At that time Jesus declared, "I thank thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to babes; 26yea, Father, for such was thy gracious will. 27All things have been delivered to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and any one to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. 28Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

  • MONDAY FIFTH WEEK OF EASTER 2013:

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 14:5-18

    There was an attempt in Iconium
    by both the Gentiles and the Jews,
    together with their leaders,
    to attack and stone Paul and Barnabas.
    They realized it,
    and fled to the Lycaonian cities of Lystra and Derbe
    and to the surrounding countryside,
    where they continued to proclaim the Good News.

    At Lystra there was a crippled man, lame from birth,
    who had never walked.
    He listened to Paul speaking, who looked intently at him,
    saw that he had the faith to be healed,
    and called out in a loud voice, “Stand up straight on your feet.”
    He jumped up and began to walk about.
    When the crowds saw what Paul had done,
    they cried out in Lycaonian,
    “The gods have come down to us in human form.”
    They called Barnabas “Zeus” and Paul “Hermes,”
    because he was the chief speaker.
    And the priest of Zeus, whose temple was at the entrance to the city,
    brought oxen and garlands to the gates,
    for he together with the people intended to offer sacrifice.

    The Apostles Barnabas and Paul tore their garments
    when they heard this and rushed out into the crowd, shouting,
    “Men, why are you doing this?
    We are of the same nature as you, human beings.
    We proclaim to you good news
    that you should turn from these idols to the living God,
    who made heaven and earth and sea and all that is in them.
    In past generations he allowed all Gentiles to go their own ways;
    yet, in bestowing his goodness,
    he did not leave himself without witness,
    for he gave you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons,
    and filled you with nourishment and gladness for your hearts.”
    Even with these words, they scarcely restrained the crowds
    from offering sacrifice to them.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 115:1-2, 3-4, 15-16

    R. (1ab) Not to us, O Lord, but to your name give the glory.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Not to us, O LORD, not to us
    but to your name give glory
    because of your mercy, because of your truth.
    Why should the pagans say,
    “Where is their God?”
    R. Not to us, O Lord, but to your name give the glory.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Our God is in heaven;
    whatever he wills, he does.
    Their idols are silver and gold,
    the handiwork of men.
    R. Not to us, O Lord, but to your name give the glory.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    May you be blessed by the LORD,
    who made heaven and earth.
    Heaven is the heaven of the LORD,
    but the earth he has given to the children of men.
    R. Not to us, O Lord, but to your name give the glory.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 14:21-26

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “Whoever has my commandments and observes them
    is the one who loves me.
    Whoever loves me will be loved by my Father,
    and I will love him and reveal myself to him.”
    Judas, not the Iscariot, said to him,
    “Master, then what happened that you will reveal yourself to us
    and not to the world?”
    Jesus answered and said to him,
    “Whoever loves me will keep my word,
    and my Father will love him,
    and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him.
    Whoever does not love me does not keep my words;
    yet the word you hear is not mine
    but that of the Father who sent me.

    “I have told you this while I am with you.
    The Advocate, the Holy Spirit
    whom the Father will send in my name–
    he will teach you everything
    and remind you of all that I told you.”
