    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Galatians 2:19-20

    19For I through the law died to the law, that I might live to God. 20I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 126:1-6

    1When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream. 2Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then they said among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them." 3The LORD has done great things for us; we are glad. 4Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like the watercourses in the Negeb! 5May those who sow in tears reap with shouts of joy! 6He that goes forth weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, shall come home with shouts of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 28:16-20

    16Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17And when they saw him they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age."

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Heb 12:4-7, 11-15

    Brothers and sisters:
    In your struggle against sin
    you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood.
    You have also forgotten the exhortation addressed to you as children:
    My son, do not disdain the discipline of the Lord
    or lose heart when reproved by him;
    for whom the Lord loves, he disciplines;
    he scourges every son he acknowledges.

    Endure your trials as “discipline”;
    God treats you as his sons.
    For what “son” is there whom his father does not discipline?
    At the time, all discipline seems a cause not for joy but for pain,
    yet later it brings the peaceful fruit of righteousness
    to those who are trained by it.

    So strengthen your drooping hands and your weak knees.
    Make straight paths for your feet,
    that what is lame may not be dislocated but healed.

    Strive for peace with everyone,
    and for that holiness without which no one will see the Lord.
    See to it that no one be deprived of the grace of God,
    that no bitter root spring up and cause trouble,
    through which many may become defiled.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 103:1-2, 13-14, 17-18a

    R. (see 17) The Lord’s kindness is everlasting to those who fear him.
    Bless the LORD, O my soul;
    and all my being, bless his holy name.
    Bless the LORD, O my soul,
    and forget not all his benefits.
    R. The Lord’s kindness is everlasting to those who fear him.
    As a father has compassion on his children,
    so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him,
    For he knows how we are formed;
    he remembers that we are dust.
    R. The Lord’s kindness is everlasting to those who fear him.
    But the kindness of the LORD is from eternity
    to eternity toward those who fear him,
    And his justice toward children’s children
    among those who keep his covenant.
    R. The Lord’s kindness is everlasting to those who fear him.

    Alleluia Jn 10:27

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord;
    I know them, and they follow me.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mk 6:1-6

    Jesus departed from there and came to his native place,
    accompanied by his disciples.
    When the sabbath came he began to teach in the synagogue,
    and many who heard him were astonished.
    They said, "Where did this man get all this?
    What kind of wisdom has been given him?
    What mighty deeds are wrought by his hands!
    Is he not the carpenter, the son of Mary,
    and the brother of James and Joseph and Judas and Simon?
    And are not his sisters here with us?"
    And they took offense at him.
    Jesus said to them,
    "A prophet is not without honor except in his native place
    and among his own kin and in his own house."
    So he was not able to perform any mighty deed there,
    apart from curing a few sick people by laying his hands on them.
    He was amazed at their lack of faith.
