    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Rv 12:7-12ab

    War broke out in heaven;
    Michael and his angels battled against the dragon.
    The dragon and its angels fought back,
    but they did not prevail
    and there was no longer any place for them in heaven.
    The huge dragon, the ancient serpent,
    who is called the Devil and Satan,
    who deceived the whole world,
    was thrown down to earth,
    and its angels were thrown down with it.

    Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:
    "Now have salvation and power come,
    and the Kingdom of our God
    and the authority of his Anointed.
    For the accuser of our brothers is cast out,
    who accuses them before our God day and night.
    They conquered him by the Blood of the Lamb
    and by the word of their testimony;
    love for life did not deter them from death.
    Therefore, rejoice, you heavens,
    and you who dwell in them."

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 138:1-2ab, 2cde-3, 4-5

    R. (1) In the sight of the angels I will sing your praises, Lord.
    I will give thanks to you, O LORD, with all my heart,
    for you have heard the words of my mouth;
    in the presence of the angels I will sing your praise;
    I will worship at your holy temple
    and give thanks to your name.
    R. In the sight of the angels I will sing your praises, Lord.
    Because of your kindness and your truth;
    for you have made great above all things
    your name and your promise.
    When I called, you answered me;
    you built up strength within me.
    R. In the sight of the angels I will sing your praises, Lord.
    All the kings of the earth shall give thanks to you, O LORD
    when they hear the words of your mouth;
    And they shall sing of the ways of the LORD
    "Great is the glory of the LORD"
    R. In the sight of the angels I will sing your praises, Lord.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 1:47-51

    Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said of him,
    "Here is a true child of Israel.
    There is no duplicity in him."
    Nathanael said to him, "How do you know me?"
    Jesus answered and said to him,
    "Before Philip called you, I saw you under the fig tree."
    Nathanael answered him,
    "Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel."
    Jesus answered and said to him,
    "Do you believe
    because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree?
    You will see greater things than this."
    And he said to him, "Amen, amen, I say to you,
    you will see heaven opened
    and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man."

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    eccl 11:9-12:8

    Rejoice, O young man, while you are young
    and let your heart be glad in the days of your youth.
    Follow the ways of your heart,
    the vision of your eyes;
    Yet understand that as regards all this
    God will bring you to judgment.
    Ward off grief from your heart
    and put away trouble from your presence,
    though the dawn of youth is fleeting.

    Remember your Creator in the days of your youth,
    before the evil days come
    And the years approach of which you will say,
    I have no pleasure in them;
    Before the sun is darkened,
    and the light, and the moon, and the stars,
    while the clouds return after the rain;
    When the guardians of the house tremble,
    and the strong men are bent,
    And the grinders are idle because they are few,
    and they who look through the windows grow blind;
    When the doors to the street are shut,
    and the sound of the mill is low;
    When one waits for the chirp of a bird,
    but all the daughters of song are suppressed;
    And one fears heights,
    and perils in the street;
    When the almond tree blooms,
    and the locust grows sluggish
    and the caper berry is without effect,
    Because man goes to his lasting home,
    and mourners go about the streets;
    Before the silver cord is snapped
    and the golden bowl is broken,
    And the pitcher is shattered at the spring,
    and the broken pulley falls into the well,
    And the dust returns to the earth as it once was,
    and the life breath returns to God who gave it.

    Vanity of vanities, says Qoheleth,
    all things are vanity!

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    ps 90:3-4, 5-6, 12-13, 14 and 17

    R. (1) In every age, O Lord, you have been our refuge.
    You turn man back to dust,
    saying, “Return, O children of men.”
    For a thousand years in your sight
    are as yesterday, now that it is past,
    or as a watch of the night.
    R. In every age, O Lord, you have been our refuge.
    You make an end of them in their sleep;
    the next morning they are like the changing grass,
    Which at dawn springs up anew,
    but by evening wilts and fades.
    R. In every age, O Lord, you have been our refuge.
    Teach us to number our days aright,
    that we may gain wisdom of heart.
    Return, O LORD! How long?
    Have pity on your servants!
    R. In every age, O Lord, you have been our refuge.
    Fill us at daybreak with your kindness,
    that we may shout for joy and gladness all our days.
    And may the gracious care of the Lord our God be ours;
    prosper the work of our hands for us!
    Prosper the work of our hands!
    R. In every age, O Lord, you have been our refuge.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    lk 9:43b-45

    While they were all amazed at his every deed,
    Jesus said to his disciples,
    “Pay attention to what I am telling you.
    The Son of Man is to be handed over to men.”
    But they did not understand this saying;
    its meaning was hidden from them
    so that they should not understand it,
    and they were afraid to ask him about this saying.
