    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Philippians 2:1-4

    1So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any incentive of love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, 2complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. 3Do nothing from selfishness or conceit, but in humility count others better than yourselves. 4Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 131:1-3

    1O LORD, my heart is not lifted up, my eyes are not raised too high; I do not occupy myself with things too great and too marvelous for me. 2But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a child quieted at its mother's breast; like a child that is quieted is my soul. 3O Israel, hope in the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Luke 14:12-14

    12He said also to the man who had invited him, "When you give a dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your kinsmen or rich neighbors, lest they also invite you in return, and you be repaid. 13But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind, 14and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. You will be repaid at the resurrection of the just."

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Wis 11:22-12:2

    Before the LORD the whole universe is as a grain from a balance
    or a drop of morning dew come down upon the earth.
    But you have mercy on all, because you can do all things;
    and you overlook people's sins that they may repent.
    For you love all things that are
    and loathe nothing that you have made;
    for what you hated, you would not have fashioned.
    And how could a thing remain, unless you willed it;
    or be preserved, had it not been called forth by you?
    But you spare all things, because they are yours,
    O LORD and lover of souls,
    for your imperishable spirit is in all things!
    Therefore you rebuke offenders little by little,
    warn them and remind them of the sins they are committing,
    that they may abandon their wickedness and believe in you, O LORD!

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 145:1-2, 8-9, 10-11, 13, 14

    R. (cf. 1)
    I will praise your name for ever, my king and my God.
    I will extol you, O my God and King,
    and I will bless your name forever and ever.
    Every day will I bless you,
    and I will praise your name forever and ever.
    R.I will praise your name for ever, my king and my God.
    The LORD is gracious and merciful,
    slow to anger and of great kindness.
    The LORD is good to all
    and compassionate toward all his works.
    R.I will praise your name for ever, my king and my God.
    Let all your works give you thanks, O LORD,
    and let your faithful ones bless you.
    Let them discourse of the glory of your kingdom
    and speak of your might.
    R.I will praise your name for ever, my king and my God.
    The LORD is faithful in all his words
    and holy in all his works.
    The LORD lifts up all who are falling
    and raises up all who are bowed down.
    R.I will praise your name for ever, my king and my God.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    2 Thes 1:11-2:2

    Brothers and sisters:
    We always pray for you,
    that our God may make you worthy of his calling
    and powerfully bring to fulfillment every good purpose
    and every effort of faith,
    that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you,
    and you in him,
    in accord with the grace of our God and Lord Jesus Christ.
    We ask you, brothers and sisters,
    with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ
    and our assembling with him,
    not to be shaken out of your minds suddenly, or to be alarmed
    either by a "spirit," or by an oral statement,
    or by a letter allegedly from us
    to the effect that the day of the Lord is at hand.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 19:1-10

    At that time, Jesus came to Jericho and intended to pass through the town.
    Now a man there named Zacchaeus,
    who was a chief tax collector and also a wealthy man,
    was seeking to see who Jesus was;
    but he could not see him because of the crowd,
    for he was short in stature.
    So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore tree in order to see Jesus,
    who was about to pass that way.
    When he reached the place, Jesus looked up and said,
    "Zacchaeus, come down quickly,
    for today I must stay at your house."
    And he came down quickly and received him with joy.
    When they all saw this, they began to grumble, saying,
    "He has gone to stay at the house of a sinner."
    But Zacchaeus stood there and said to the Lord,
    "Behold, half of my possessions, Lord, I shall give to the poor,
    and if I have extorted anything from anyone
    I shall repay it four times over."
    And Jesus said to him,
    "Today salvation has come to this house
    because this man too is a descendant of Abraham.
    For the Son of Man has come to seek
    and to save what was lost."
