    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

    Am 6:1a, 4-7

    Thus says the LORD the God of hosts:
    Woe to the complacent in Zion!
    Lying upon beds of ivory,
    stretched comfortably on their couches,
    they eat lambs taken from the flock,
    and calves from the stall!
    Improvising to the music of the harp,
    like David, they devise their own accompaniment.
    They drink wine from bowls
    and anoint themselves with the best oils;
    yet they are not made ill by the collapse of Joseph!
    Therefore, now they shall be the first to go into exile,
    and their wanton revelry shall be done away with.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 146:7, 8-9, 9-10

    R. (1b)
    Praise the Lord, my soul!
    or:
    R.Alleluia.
    Blessed he who keeps faith forever,
    secures justice for the oppressed,
    gives food to the hungry.
    The LORD sets captives free.
    R.Praise the Lord, my soul!
    or:
    R.Alleluia.
    The LORD gives sight to the blind.
    The LORD raises up those who were bowed down;
    the LORD loves the just.
    The LORD protects strangers.
    R.Praise the Lord, my soul!
    or:
    R.Alleluia.
    The fatherless and the widow he sustains,
    but the way of the wicked he thwarts.
    The LORD shall reign forever;
    your God, O Zion, through all generations. Alleluia.
    R.Praise the Lord, my soul!
    or:
    R.Alleluia.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 Tm 6:11-16

    But you, man of God, pursue righteousness,
    devotion, faith, love, patience, and gentleness.
    Compete well for the faith.
    Lay hold of eternal life, to which you were called
    when you made the noble confession in the presence of many witnesses.
    I charge you before God, who gives life to all things,
    and before Christ Jesus,
    who gave testimony under Pontius Pilate for the noble confession,
    to keep the commandment without stain or reproach
    until the appearance of our Lord Jesus Christ
    that the blessed and only ruler
    will make manifest at the proper time,
    the King of kings and Lord of lords,
    who alone has immortality, who dwells in unapproachable light,
    and whom no human being has seen or can see.
    To him be honor and eternal power. Amen.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 16:19-31

    Jesus said to the Pharisees:
    "There was a rich man who dressed in purple garments and fine linen
    and dined sumptuously each day.
    And lying at his door was a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores,
    who would gladly have eaten his fill of the scraps
    that fell from the rich man's table.
    Dogs even used to come and lick his sores.
    When the poor man died,
    he was carried away by angels to the bosom of Abraham.
    The rich man also died and was buried,
    and from the netherworld, where he was in torment,
    he raised his eyes and saw Abraham far off
    and Lazarus at his side.
    And he cried out, 'Father Abraham, have pity on me.
    Send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue,
    for I am suffering torment in these flames.'
    Abraham replied,
    'My child, remember that you received
    what was good during your lifetime
    while Lazarus likewise received what was bad;
    but now he is comforted here, whereas you are tormented.
    Moreover, between us and you a great chasm is established
    to prevent anyone from crossing who might wish to go
    from our side to yours or from your side to ours.’
    He said, 'Then I beg you, father,
    send him to my father's house, for I have five brothers,
    so that he may warn them,
    lest they too come to this place of torment.'
    But Abraham replied, 'They have Moses and the prophets.
    Let them listen to them.'
    He said, 'Oh no, father Abraham,
    but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.'
    Then Abraham said, 'If they will not listen to Moses and the prophets,
    neither will they be persuaded if someone should rise from the dead.'"
