    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Hebrews 12:18-19, 21-24

    18For you have not come to what may be touched, a blazing fire, and darkness, and gloom, and a tempest,19and the sound of a trumpet, and a voice whose words made the hearers entreat that no further messages be spoken to them.21Indeed, so terrifying was the sight that Moses said, "I tremble with fear."22But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable angels in festal gathering,23and to the assembly of the first-born who are enrolled in heaven, and to a judge who is God of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,24and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks more graciously than the blood of Abel.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 48:2-4, 9-11

    1Great is the LORD and greatly to be praised in the city of our God! His holy mountain, 2beautiful in elevation, is the joy of all the earth, Mount Zion, in the far north, the city of the great King. 3Within her citadels God has shown himself a sure defense. 8As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God, which God establishes for ever. [Selah] 9We have thought on thy steadfast love, O God, in the midst of thy temple. 10As thy name, O God, so thy praise reaches to the ends of the earth. Thy right hand is filled with victory;

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mark 6:7-13

    7And he called to him the twelve, and began to send them out two by two, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits. 8He charged them to take nothing for their journey except a staff; no bread, no bag, no money in their belts; 9but to wear sandals and not put on two tunics. 10And he said to them, "Where you enter a house, stay there until you leave the place. 11And if any place will not receive you and they refuse to hear you, when you leave, shake off the dust that is on your feet for a testimony against them." 12So they went out and preached that men should repent. 13And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many that were sick and healed them.

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Heb 12:1-4

    Brothers and sisters:
    Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses,
    let us rid ourselves of every burden and sin that clings to us
    and persevere in running the race that lies before us
    while keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus,
    the leader and perfecter of faith.
    For the sake of the joy that lay before him
    Jesus endured the cross, despising its shame,
    and has taken his seat at the right of the throne of God.
    Consider how he endured such opposition from sinners,
    in order that you may not grow weary and lose heart.
    In your struggle against sin
    you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 22:26b-27, 28 and 30, 31-32

    R. (see 27b) They will praise you, Lord, who long for you.
    I will fulfill my vows before those who fear him.
    The lowly shall eat their fill;
    they who seek the LORD shall praise him:
    “May your hearts be ever merry!”
    R. They will praise you, Lord, who long for you.
    All the ends of the earth
    shall remember and turn to the LORD;
    All the families of the nations
    shall bow down before him.
    To him alone shall bow down
    all who sleep in the earth;
    Before him shall bend
    all who go down into the dust.
    R. They will praise you, Lord, who long for you.
    And to him my soul shall live;
    my descendants shall serve him.
    Let the coming generation be told of the LORD
    that they may proclaim to a people yet to be born
    the justice he has shown.
    R. They will praise you, Lord, who long for you.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mk 5:21-43

    When Jesus had crossed again in the boat
    to the other side,
    a large crowd gathered around him, and he stayed close to the sea.
    One of the synagogue officials, named Jairus, came forward.
    Seeing him he fell at his feet and pleaded earnestly with him, saying,
    "My daughter is at the point of death.
    Please, come lay your hands on her
    that she may get well and live."
    He went off with him
    and a large crowd followed him.

    There was a woman afflicted with hemorrhages for twelve years.
    She had suffered greatly at the hands of many doctors
    and had spent all that she had.
    Yet she was not helped but only grew worse.
    She had heard about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd
    and touched his cloak.
    She said, "If I but touch his clothes, I shall be cured."
    Immediately her flow of blood dried up.
    She felt in her body that she was healed of her affliction.
    Jesus, aware at once that power had gone out from him,
    turned around in the crowd and asked, "Who has touched my clothes?"
    But his disciples said to him,
    "You see how the crowd is pressing upon you,
    and yet you ask, Who touched me?"
    And he looked around to see who had done it.
    The woman, realizing what had happened to her,
    approached in fear and trembling.
    She fell down before Jesus and told him the whole truth.
    He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has saved you.
    Go in peace and be cured of your affliction."

    While he was still speaking,
    people from the synagogue official's house arrived and said,
    "Your daughter has died; why trouble the teacher any longer?"
    Disregarding the message that was reported,
    Jesus said to the synagogue official,
    "Do not be afraid; just have faith."
    He did not allow anyone to accompany him inside
    except Peter, James, and John, the brother of James.
    When they arrived at the house of the synagogue official,
    he caught sight of a commotion,
    people weeping and wailing loudly.
    So he went in and said to them,
    "Why this commotion and weeping?
    The child is not dead but asleep."
    And they ridiculed him.
    Then he put them all out.
    He took along the child's father and mother
    and those who were with him
    and entered the room where the child was.
    He took the child by the hand and said to her, "Talitha koum,"
    which means, "Little girl, I say to you, arise!"
    The girl, a child of twelve, arose immediately and walked around.
    At that they were utterly astounded.
    He gave strict orders that no one should know this
    and said that she should be given something to eat.
