    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Philippians 2:5-11

    5Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8And being found in human form he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross. 9Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name which is above every name, 10that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 22:26-32

    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. 28For dominion belongs to the LORD, and he rules over the nations. 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

    Luke 14:15-24

    15When one of those who sat at table with him heard this, he said to him, "Blessed is he who shall eat bread in the kingdom of God!" 16But he said to him, "A man once gave a great banquet, and invited many; 17and at the time for the banquet he sent his servant to say to those who had been invited, `Come; for all is now ready.' 18But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said to him, `I have bought a field, and I must go out and see it; I pray you, have me excused.' 19And another said, `I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to examine them; I pray you, have me excused.' 20And another said, `I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.' 21So the servant came and reported this to his master. Then the householder in anger said to his servant, `Go out quickly to the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in the poor and maimed and blind and lame.' 22And the servant said, `Sir, what you commanded has been done, and still there is room.' 23And the master said to the servant, `Go out to the highways and hedges, and compel people to come in, that my house may be filled. 24For I tell you, none of those men who were invited shall taste my banquet.'"

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Dt 6:2-6

    Moses spoke to the people, saying:
    "Fear the LORD, your God,
    and keep, throughout the days of your lives,
    all his statutes and commandments which I enjoin on you,
    and thus have long life.
    Hear then, Israel, and be careful to observe them,
    that you may grow and prosper the more,
    in keeping with the promise of the LORD, the God of your fathers,
    to give you a land flowing with milk and honey.
    "Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD alone!
    Therefore, you shall love the LORD, your God,
    with all your heart,
    and with all your soul,
    and with all your strength.
    Take to heart these words which I enjoin on you today."

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 18:2-3, 3-4, 47, 51

    R. (2)
    I love you, Lord, my strength.
    I love you, O LORD, my strength,
    O LORD, my rock, my fortress, my deliverer.
    R.I love you, Lord, my strength.
    My God, my rock of refuge,
    my shield, the horn of my salvation, my stronghold!
    Praised be the LORD, I exclaim,
    and I am safe from my enemies.
    R.I love you, Lord, my strength.
    The LORD lives! And blessed be my rock!
    Extolled be God my savior.
    You who gave great victories to your king
    and showed kindness to your anointed.
    R.I love you, Lord, my strength.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Heb 7:23-28

    Brothers and sisters:
    The levitical priests were many
    because they were prevented by death from remaining in office,
    but Jesus, because he remains forever,
    has a priesthood that does not pass away.
    Therefore, he is always able to save those who approach God through him,
    since he lives forever to make intercession for them.
    It was fitting that we should have such a high priest:
    holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners,
    higher than the heavens.
    He has no need, as did the high priests,
    to offer sacrifice day after day,
    first for his own sins and then for those of the people;
    he did that once for all when he offered himself.
    For the law appoints men subject to weakness to be high priests,
    but the word of the oath, which was taken after the law,
    appoints a son,
    who has been made perfect forever.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mk 12:28b-34

    One of the scribes came to Jesus and asked him,
    "Which is the first of all the commandments?"
    Jesus replied, "The first is this:
    Hear, O Israel!
    The Lord our God is Lord alone!
    You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
    with all your soul,
    with all your mind,
    and with all your strength.
    The second is this:
    You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
    There is no other commandment greater than these."
    The scribe said to him, "Well said, teacher.
    You are right in saying,
    'He is One and there is no other than he.'
    And 'to love him with all your heart,
    with all your understanding,
    with all your strength,
    and to love your neighbor as yourself'
    is worth more than all burnt offerings and sacrifices."
    And when Jesus saw that he answered with understanding,
    he said to him,
    "You are not far from the kingdom of God."
    And no one dared to ask him any more questions.
