    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Isaiah 6:1-8

    1In the year that King Uzzi'ah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and his train filled the temple. 2Above him stood the seraphim; each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3And one called to another and said: "Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory." 4And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke. 5And I said: "Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts!" 6Then flew one of the seraphim to me, having in his hand a burning coal which he had taken with tongs from the altar. 7And he touched my mouth, and said: "Behold, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin forgiven." 8And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?" Then I said, "Here am I! Send me."

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 40:2, 4, 7-11

    1I waited patiently for the LORD; he inclined to me and heard my cry. 3He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the LORD. 6Sacrifice and offering thou dost not desire; but thou hast given me an open ear. Burnt offering and sin offering thou hast not required. 7Then I said, "Lo, I come; in the roll of the book it is written of me;8I delight to do thy will, O my God; thy law is within my heart." 9I have told the glad news of deliverance in the great congregation; lo, I have not restrained my lips, as thou knowest, O LORD. 10I have not hid thy saving help within my heart, I have spoken of thy faithfulness and thy salvation; I have not concealed thy steadfast love and thy faithfulness from the great congregation.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Luke 10:1-9

    1After this the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to come. 2And he said to them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. 3Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. 4Carry no purse, no bag, no sandals; and salute no one on the road. 5Whatever house you enter, first say, `Peace be to this house!' 6And if a son of peace is there, your peace shall rest upon him; but if not, it shall return to you. 7And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for the laborer deserves his wages; do not go from house to house. 8Whenever you enter a town and they receive you, eat what is set before you; 9heal the sick in it and say to them, `The kingdom of God has come near to you.'

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Is 29:17-24

    Thus says the Lord GOD:
    But a very little while,
    and Lebanon shall be changed into an orchard,
    and the orchard be regarded as a forest!
    On that day the deaf shall hear
    the words of a book;
    And out of gloom and darkness,
    the eyes of the blind shall see.
    The lowly will ever find joy in the LORD,
    and the poor rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.
    For the tyrant will be no more
    and the arrogant will have gone;
    All who are alert to do evil will be cut off,
    those whose mere word condemns a man,
    Who ensnare his defender at the gate,
    and leave the just man with an empty claim.
    Therefore thus says the LORD,
    the God of the house of Jacob,
    who redeemed Abraham:
    Now Jacob shall have nothing to be ashamed of,
    nor shall his face grow pale.
    When his children see
    the work of my hands in his midst,
    They shall keep my name holy;
    they shall reverence the Holy One of Jacob,
    and be in awe of the God of Israel.
    Those who err in spirit shall acquire understanding,
    and those who find fault shall receive instruction.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 27:1, 4, 13-14

    R. (1a) The Lord is my light and my salvation.
    The LORD is my light and my salvation;
    whom should I fear?
    The LORD is my life's refuge;
    of whom should I be afraid?
    R. The Lord is my light and my salvation.
    One thing I ask of the LORD;
    this I seek:
    To dwell in the house of the LORD
    all the days of my life,
    That I may gaze on the loveliness of the LORD
    and contemplate his temple.
    R. The Lord is my light and my salvation.
    I believe that I shall see the bounty of the LORD
    in the land of the living.
    Wait for the LORD with courage;
    be stouthearted, and wait for the LORD.
    R. The Lord is my light and my salvation.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 9:27-31

    As Jesus passed by, two blind men followed him, crying out,
    "Son of David, have pity on us!"
    When he entered the house,
    the blind men approached him and Jesus said to them,
    "Do you believe that I can do this?"
    "Yes, Lord," they said to him.
    Then he touched their eyes and said,
    "Let it be done for you according to your faith."
    And their eyes were opened.
    Jesus warned them sternly,
    "See that no one knows about this."
    But they went out and spread word of him through all that land.
