    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Philippians 4:4-9

    4Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. 5Let all men know your forbearance. The Lord is at hand. 6Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. 9What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, do; and the God of peace will be with you.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 103:1-4, 8-9, 13-14, 17-18

    1Bless the LORD, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless his holy name! 2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, 3who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, 4who redeems your life from the Pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, 8The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. 9He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger for ever. 13As a father pities his children, so the LORD pities those who fear him. 14For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust. 17But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon those who fear him, and his righteousness to children's children, 18to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 18:1-5

    1At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, "Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" 2And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them, 3and said, "Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4Whoever humbles himself like this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5"Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me;

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Heb 10:19-25

    Brothers and sisters:
    Since through the Blood of Jesus
    we have confidence of entrance into the sanctuary
    by the new and living way he opened for us through the veil,
    that is, his flesh,
    and since we have “a great priest over the house of God,”
    let us approach with a sincere heart and in absolute trust,
    with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience
    and our bodies washed in pure water.
    Let us hold unwaveringly to our confession that gives us hope,
    for he who made the promise is trustworthy.
    We must consider how to rouse one another to love and good works.
    We should not stay away from our assembly,
    as is the custom of some, but encourage one another,
    and this all the more as you see the day drawing near.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 24:1-2, 3-4ab, 5-6

    R. (see 6)  Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face.
    The LORD’s are the earth and its fullness;
    the world and those who dwell in it.
    For he founded it upon the seas
    and established it upon the rivers.
    R. Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face.
    Who can ascend the mountain of the LORD?
    or who may stand in his holy place?
    He whose hands are sinless, whose heart is clean,
    who desires not what is vain.
    R. Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face.
    He shall receive a blessing from the LORD,
    a reward from God his savior.
    Such is the race that seeks for him,
    that seeks the face of the God of Jacob.
    R. Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    mk 4:21-25

    Jesus said to his disciples,
    “Is a lamp brought in to be placed under a bushel basket
    or under a bed,
    and not to be placed on a lampstand?
    For there is nothing hidden except to be made visible;
    nothing is secret except to come to light.
    Anyone who has ears to hear ought to hear.”
    He also told them, “Take care what you hear.
    The measure with which you measure will be measured out to you,
    and still more will be given to you.
    To the one who has, more will be given;
    from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.”
