    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Hebrews 10:32-39

    32But recall the former days when, after you were enlightened, you endured a hard struggle with sufferings,33sometimes being publicly exposed to abuse and affliction, and sometimes being partners with those so treated.34For you had compassion on the prisoners, and you joyfully accepted the plundering of your property, since you knew that you yourselves had a better possession and an abiding one.35Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward.36For you have need of endurance, so that you may do the will of God and receive what is promised.37"For yet a little while, and the coming one shall come and shall not tarry;38but my righteous one shall live by faith, and if he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him."39But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and keep their souls.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 37:3-6, 23-24, 39-40

    3Trust in the LORD, and do good; so you will dwell in the land, and enjoy security. 4Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. 5Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will act. 6He will bring forth your vindication as the light, and your right as the noonday. 23The steps of a man are from the LORD, and he establishes him in whose way he delights; 24though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong, for the LORD is the stay of his hand. 39The salvation of the righteous is from the LORD; he is their refuge in the time of trouble. 40The LORD helps them and delivers them; he delivers them from the wicked, and saves them, because they take refuge in him.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mark 4:26-34

    26And he said, "The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed upon the ground, 27and should sleep and rise night and day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he knows not how. 28The earth produces of itself, first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear. 29But when the grain is ripe, at once he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come." 30And he said, "With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable shall we use for it? 31It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when sown upon the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth; 32yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes the greatest of all shrubs, and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade." 33With many such parables he spoke the word to them, as they were able to hear it; 34he did not speak to them without a parable, but privately to his own disciples he explained everything.

  • WEDNESDAY THIRD WEEK OF ORDINARY TIME 2013:

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Heb 10:11-18

    Every priest stands daily at his ministry,
    offering frequently those same sacrifices
    that can never take away sins.
    But this one offered one sacrifice for sins,
    and took his seat forever at the right hand of God;
    now he waits until his enemies are made his footstool.
    For by one offering he has made perfect forever
    those who are being consecrated.
    The Holy Spirit also testifies to us, for after saying:

    This is the covenant I will establish with them
    after those days, says the Lord:
    “I will put my laws in their hearts,
    and I will write them upon their minds,”


    he also says:

    Their sins and their evildoing
    I will remember no more.


    Where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer offering for sin.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    ps 110:1, 2, 3, 4

    R. (4b) You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.
    The LORD said to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand
    till I make your enemies your footstool.”
    R. You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.
    The scepter of your power the LORD will stretch forth from Zion:
    “Rule in the midst of your enemies.”
    R. You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.
    “Yours is princely power in the day of your birth, in holy splendor;
    before the daystar, like the dew, I have begotten you.”
    R. You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.
    The LORD has sworn, and he will not repent:
    “You are a priest forever, according to the order of Melchizedek.”
    R. You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    mk 4:1-20

    On another occasion, Jesus began to teach by the sea.
    A very large crowd gathered around him
    so that he got into a boat on the sea and sat down.
    And the whole crowd was beside the sea on land.
    And he taught them at length in parables,
    and in the course of his instruction he said to them,
    “Hear this! A sower went out to sow.
    And as he sowed, some seed fell on the path,
    and the birds came and ate it up.
    Other seed fell on rocky ground where it had little soil.
    It sprang up at once because the soil was not deep.
    And when the sun rose, it was scorched and it withered for lack of roots.
    Some seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it
    and it produced no grain.
    And some seed fell on rich soil and produced fruit.
    It came up and grew and yielded thirty, sixty, and a hundredfold.”
    He added, “Whoever has ears to hear ought to hear.”

    And when he was alone,
    those present along with the Twelve
    questioned him about the parables.
    He answered them,
    “The mystery of the Kingdom of God has been granted to you.
    But to those outside everything comes in parables, so that
    they may look and see but not perceive,
    and hear and listen but not understand,
    in order that they may not be converted and be forgiven
    .”

    Jesus said to them, “Do you not understand this parable?
    Then how will you understand any of the parables?
    The sower sows the word.
    These are the ones on the path where the word is sown.
    As soon as they hear, Satan comes at once
    and takes away the word sown in them.
    And these are the ones sown on rocky ground who,
    when they hear the word, receive it at once with joy.
    But they have no roots; they last only for a time.
    Then when tribulation or persecution comes because of the word,
    they quickly fall away.
    Those sown among thorns are another sort.
    They are the people who hear the word,
    but worldly anxiety, the lure of riches,
    and the craving for other things intrude and choke the word,
    and it bears no fruit.
    But those sown on rich soil are the ones who hear the word and accept it
    and bear fruit thirty and sixty and a hundredfold.”
