    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Rom 10:9-18

    Brothers and sisters:
    If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord
    and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
    you will be saved.
    For one believes with the heart and so is justified,
    and one confesses with the mouth and so is saved.
    The Scripture says,
    No one who believes in him will be put to shame.
    There is no distinction between Jew and Greek;
    the same Lord is Lord of all,
    enriching all who call upon him.
    For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.

    But how can they call on him in whom they have not believed?
    And how can they believe in him of whom they have not heard?
    And how can they hear without someone to preach?
    And how can people preach unless they are sent?
    As it is written,
    How beautiful are the feet of those who bring the good news!
    But not everyone has heeded the good news;
    for Isaiah says, Lord, who has believed what was heard from us?
    Thus faith comes from what is heard,
    and what is heard comes through the word of Christ.
    But I ask, did they not hear?
    Certainly they did; for

    Their voice has gone forth to all the earth,
    and their words to the ends of the world.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 19:8, 9, 10, 11

    R. (10) The judgments of the Lord are true, and all of them are just.
    or:
    R. (John 6:63) Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life.
    The law of the LORD is perfect,
    refreshing the soul;
    The decree of the LORD is trustworthy,
    giving wisdom to the simple.
    R. The judgments of the Lord are true, and all of them are just.
    or:
    R. Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life.
    The precepts of the LORD are right,
    rejoicing the heart;
    The command of the LORD is clear,
    enlightening the eye.
    R. The judgments of the Lord are true, and all of them are just.
    or:
    R. Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life.
    The fear of the LORD is pure,
    enduring forever;
    The ordinances of the LORD are true,
    all of them just.
    R. The judgments of the Lord are true, and all of them are just.
    or:
    R. Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life.
    They are more precious than gold,
    than a heap of purest gold;
    Sweeter also than syrup
    or honey from the comb.
    R. The judgments of the Lord are true, and all of them are just.
    or:
    R. Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 4:18-22

    As Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers,
    Simon who is called Peter, and his brother Andrew,
    casting a net into the sea; they were fishermen.
    He said to them,
    "Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men."
    At once they left their nets and followed him.
    He walked along from there and saw two other brothers,
    James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John.
    They were in a boat, with their father Zebedee, mending their nets.
    He called them, and immediately they left their boat and their father
    and followed him.

  • FRIDAY THIRTY-FOURTH WEEK OF ORDINARY TIME 2012:

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    rv 20:1-4, 11-21:2

    I, John, saw an angel come down from heaven,
    holding in his hand the key to the abyss and a heavy chain.
    He seized the dragon, the ancient serpent,
    which is the Devil or Satan,
    and tied it up for a thousand years and threw it into the abyss,
    which he locked over it and sealed,
    so that it could no longer lead the nations astray
    until the thousand years are completed.
    After this, it is to be released for a short time.

    Then I saw thrones; those who sat on them were entrusted with judgment.
    I also saw the souls of those who had been beheaded
    for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God,
    and who had not worshiped the beast or its image
    nor had accepted its mark on their foreheads or hands.
    They came to life and they reigned with Christ for a thousand years.

    Next I saw a large white throne and the one who was sitting on it.
    The earth and the sky fled from his presence
    and there was no place for them.
    I saw the dead, the great and the lowly, standing before the throne,
    and scrolls were opened.
    Then another scroll was opened, the book of life.
    The dead were judged according to their deeds,
    by what was written in the scrolls.
    The sea gave up its dead;
    then Death and Hades gave up their dead.
    All the dead were judged according to their deeds.
    Then Death and Hades were thrown into the pool of fire.
    (This pool of fire is the second death.)
    Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life
    was thrown into the pool of fire.

    Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth.
    The former heaven and the former earth had passed away,
    and the sea was no more.
    I also saw the holy city, a new Jerusalem,
    coming down out of heaven from God,
    prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    ps 84:3, 4, 5-6a and 8a

    R. (Rev. 21:3b) Here God lives among his people.
    My soul yearns and pines
    for the courts of the LORD.
    My heart and my flesh
    cry out for the living God.
    R. Here God lives among his people.
    Even the sparrow finds a home,
    and the swallow a nest
    in which she puts her young–
    Your altars, O LORD of hosts,
    my king and my God!
    R. Here God lives among his people.
    Blessed they who dwell in your house!
    continually they praise you.
    Blessed the men whose strength you are!
    They go from strength to strength.
    R. Here God lives among his people.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    lk 21:29-33

    Jesus told his disciples a parable.
    “Consider the fig tree and all the other trees.
    When their buds burst open,
    you see for yourselves and know that summer is now near;
    in the same way, when you see these things happening,
    know that the Kingdom of God is near.
    Amen, I say to you, this generation will not pass away
    until all these things have taken place.
    Heaven and earth will pass away,
    but my words will not pass away.”
