    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Hebrews 12:1-4

    1Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us,2looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.3Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted.4In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 22:26-28, 30-32

    25From thee comes my praise in the great congregation; my vows I will pay before those who fear him. 26The afflicted shall eat and be satisfied; those who seek him shall praise the LORD! May your hearts live for ever! 27All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the LORD; and all the families of the nations shall worship before him. 29Yea, to him shall all the proud of the earth bow down; before him shall bow all who go down to the dust, and he who cannot keep himself alive. 30Posterity shall serve him; men shall tell of the Lord to the coming generation, 31and proclaim his deliverance to a people yet unborn, that he has wrought it.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mark 5:21-43

    21And when Jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side, a great crowd gathered about him; and he was beside the sea. 22Then came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Ja'irus by name; and seeing him, he fell at his feet, 23and besought him, saying, "My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may be made well, and live." 24And he went with him. And a great crowd followed him and thronged about him. 25And there was a woman who had had a flow of blood for twelve years, 26and who had suffered much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was no better but rather grew worse. 27She had heard the reports about Jesus, and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment. 28For she said, "If I touch even his garments, I shall be made well." 29And immediately the hemorrhage ceased; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. 30And Jesus, perceiving in himself that power had gone forth from him, immediately turned about in the crowd, and said, "Who touched my garments?" 31And his disciples said to him, "You see the crowd pressing around you, and yet you say, `Who touched me?'" 32And he looked around to see who had done it. 33But the woman, knowing what had been done to her, came in fear and trembling and fell down before him, and told him the whole truth. 34And he said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease." 35While he was still speaking, there came from the ruler's house some who said, "Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?" 36But ignoring what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, "Do not fear, only believe." 37And he allowed no one to follow him except Peter and James and John the brother of James. 38When they came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, he saw a tumult, and people weeping and wailing loudly. 39And when he had entered, he said to them, "Why do you make a tumult and weep? The child is not dead but sleeping." 40And they laughed at him. But he put them all outside, and took the child's father and mother and those who were with him, and went in where the child was. 41Taking her by the hand he said to her, "Tal'itha cu'mi"; which means, "Little girl, I say to you, arise." 42And immediately the girl got up and walked (she was twelve years of age), and they were immediately overcome with amazement. 43And he strictly charged them that no one should know this, and told them to give her something to eat.

  • FOURTH SUNDAY OF ORDINARY TIME 2013:

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Jer 1:4-5, 17-19

    The word of the LORD came to me, saying:
    Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
    before you were born I dedicated you,
    a prophet to the nations I appointed you.
    But do you gird your loins;
    stand up and tell them
    all that I command you.
    Be not crushed on their account,
    as though I would leave you crushed before them;
    for it is I this day
    who have made you a fortified city,
    a pillar of iron, a wall of brass,
    against the whole land:
    against Judah’s kings and princes,
    against its priests and people.
    They will fight against you but not prevail over you,
    for I am with you to deliver you, says the LORD.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 71:1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 15-17

    R. (cf. 15ab)
    I will sing of your salvation.
    In you, O LORD, I take refuge;
    let me never be put to shame.
    In your justice rescue me, and deliver me;
    incline your ear to me, and save me.
    R.I will sing of your salvation.
    Be my rock of refuge,
    a stronghold to give me safety,
    for you are my rock and my fortress.
    O my God, rescue me from the hand of the wicked.
    R.I will sing of your salvation.
    For you are my hope, O Lord;
    my trust, O God, from my youth.
    On you I depend from birth;
    from my mother’s womb you are my strength.
    R.I will sing of your salvation.
    My mouth shall declare your justice,
    day by day your salvation.
    O God, you have taught me from my youth,
    and till the present I proclaim your wondrous deeds.
    R.I will sing of your salvation.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 Cor 12:31—13:13 or 13:4-13

    Brothers and sisters:
    Strive eagerly for the greatest spiritual gifts.
    But I shall show you a still more excellent way.
    If I speak in human and angelic tongues,
    but do not have love,
    I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal.
    And if I have the gift of prophecy,
    and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge;
    if I have all faith so as to move mountains,
    but do not have love, I am nothing.
    If I give away everything I own,
    and if I hand my body over so that I may boast,
    but do not have love, I gain nothing.
    Love is patient, love is kind.
    It is not jealous, it is not pompous,
    It is not inflated, it is not rude,
    it does not seek its own interests,
    it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury,
    it does not rejoice over wrongdoing
    but rejoices with the truth.
    It bears all things, believes all things,
    hopes all things, endures all things.
    Love never fails.
    If there are prophecies, they will be brought to nothing;
    if tongues, they will cease;
    if knowledge, it will be brought to nothing.
    For we know partially and we prophesy partially,
    but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away.
    When I was a child, I used to talk as a child,
    think as a child, reason as a child;
    when I became a man, I put aside childish things.
    At present we see indistinctly, as in a mirror,
    but then face to face.
    At present I know partially;
    then I shall know fully, as I am fully known.
    So faith, hope, love remain, these three;
    but the greatest of these is love.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 4:21-30

    Jesus began speaking in the synagogue, saying:
    "Today this Scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing."
    And all spoke highly of him
    and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his mouth.
    They also asked, "Isn’t this the son of Joseph?"
    He said to them, "Surely you will quote me this proverb,
    ‘Physician, cure yourself,’ and say,
    ‘Do here in your native place
    the things that we heard were done in Capernaum.’"
    And he said, "Amen, I say to you,
    no prophet is accepted in his own native place.
    Indeed, I tell you,
    there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah
    when the sky was closed for three and a half years
    and a severe famine spread over the entire land.
    It was to none of these that Elijah was sent,
    but only to a widow in Zarephath in the land of Sidon.
    Again, there were many lepers in Israel
    during the time of Elisha the prophet;
    yet not one of them was cleansed, but only Naaman the Syrian."
    When the people in the synagogue heard this,
    they were all filled with fury.
    They rose up, drove him out of the town,
    and led him to the brow of the hill
    on which their town had been built,
    to hurl him down headlong.
    But Jesus passed through the midst of them and went away.
