  • Transfiguration of the Lord 2011:

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Dn 7:9-10, 13-14

    As I watched:

    Thrones were set up
    and the Ancient One took his throne.
    His clothing was bright as snow,
    and the hair on his head as white as wool;
    his throne was flames of fire,
    with wheels of burning fire.
    A surging stream of fire
    flowed out from where he sat;
    Thousands upon thousands were ministering to him,
    and myriads upon myriads attended him.
    The court was convened and the books were opened.

    As the visions during the night continued, I saw:

    One like a Son of man coming,
    on the clouds of heaven;
    When he reached the Ancient One
    and was presented before him,
    The one like a Son of man received dominion, glory, and kingship;
    all peoples, nations, and languages serve him.
    His dominion is an everlasting dominion
    that shall not be taken away,
    his kingship shall not be destroyed.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 97:1-2, 5-6, 9

    R. (1a and 9a) The Lord is king, the Most High over all the earth.
    The LORD is king; let the earth rejoice;
    let the many islands be glad.
    Clouds and darkness are round about him,
    justice and judgment are the foundation of his throne.
    R. The Lord is king, the Most High over all the earth.
    The mountains melt like wax before the LORD,
    before the LORD of all the earth.
    The heavens proclaim his justice,
    and all peoples see his glory.
    R. The Lord is king, the Most High over all the earth.
    Because you, O LORD, are the Most High over all the earth,
    exalted far above all gods.
    R. The Lord is king, the Most High over all the earth.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    2 Pt 1:16-19

    Beloved:
    We did not follow cleverly devised myths
    when we made known to you
    the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ,
    but we had been eyewitnesses of his majesty.
    For he received honor and glory from God the Father
    when that unique declaration came to him from the majestic glory,
    "This is my Son, my beloved, with whom I am well pleased."
    We ourselves heard this voice come from heaven
    while we were with him on the holy mountain.
    Moreover, we possess the prophetic message that is altogether reliable.
    You will do well to be attentive to it,
    as to a lamp shining in a dark place,
    until day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mk 9:2-10

    Jesus took Peter, James, and his brother John,
    and led them up a high mountain apart by themselves.
    And he was transfigured before them,
    and his clothes became dazzling white,
    such as no fuller on earth could bleach them.
    Then Elijah appeared to them along with Moses,
    and they were conversing with Jesus.
    Then Peter said to Jesus in reply,
    "Rabbi, it is good that we are here!
    Let us make three tents:
    one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah."
    He hardly knew what to say, they were so terrified.
    Then a cloud came, casting a shadow over them;
    from the cloud came a voice,
    "This is my beloved Son. Listen to him."
    Suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone
    but Jesus alone with them.

    As they were coming down from the mountain,
    he charged them not to relate what they had seen to anyone,
    except when the Son of Man had risen from the dead.
    So they kept the matter to themselves,
    questioning what rising from the dead meant.

  • SATURDAY EIGHTEENTH WEEK OF ORDINARY TIME 2011:

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Dt 6:4-13

    Moses said to the people:
    “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.
    Drill them into your children.
    Speak of them at home and abroad, whether you are busy or at rest.
    Bind them at your wrist as a sign
    and let them be as a pendant on your forehead.
    Write them on the doorposts of your houses and on your gates.

    “When the LORD, your God, brings you into the land which he swore
    to your fathers: Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,
    that he would give you,
    a land with fine, large cities that you did not build,
    with houses full of goods of all sorts that you did not garner,
    with cisterns that you did not dig,
    with vineyards and olive groves that you did not plant;
    and when, therefore, you eat your fill,
    take care not to forget the LORD,
    who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery.
    The LORD, your God, shall you fear;
    him shall you serve, and by his name shall you swear.”

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 18:2-3a, 3bc-4, 47 and 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 live! And blessed be my Rock!
    Extolled be God my savior!
    You who gave great victories to your king,
    and showed kindness to your anointed,
    to David and his posterity forever.
    R. I love you, Lord, my strength.

    Alleluia See 2 Tm 1:10

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Our Savior Jesus Christ has destroyed death
    and brought life to light through the Gospel.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 17:14-20

    A man came up to Jesus, knelt down before him, and said,
    "Lord, have pity on my son, who is a lunatic and suffers severely;
    often he falls into fire, and often into water.
    I brought him to your disciples, but they could not cure him."
    Jesus said in reply,
    "O faithless and perverse generation, how long will I be with you?
    How long will I endure you?
    Bring the boy here to me."
    Jesus rebuked him and the demon came out of him,
    and from that hour the boy was cured.
    Then the disciples approached Jesus in private and said,
    "Why could we not drive it out?"
    He said to them, "Because of your little faith.
    Amen, I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed,
    you will say to this mountain,
    "Move from here to there," and it will move.
    Nothing will be impossible for you."
