  • The Annunciation of the Lord 2013:

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Isaiah 7:10-14; 8:10

    710Again the LORD spoke to Ahaz, 11"Ask a sign of the LORD your God; let it be deep as Sheol or high as heaven." 12But Ahaz said, "I will not ask, and I will not put the LORD to the test." 13And he said, "Hear then, O house of David! Is it too little for you to weary men, that you weary my God also? 14Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, a young woman shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Imman'u-el. 810Take counsel together, but it will come to nought; speak a word, but it will not stand, for God is with us.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 40:7-11

    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.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Hebrews 10:4-10

    4For it is impossible that the blood of bulls and goats should take away sins.5Consequently, when Christ came into the world, he said, "Sacrifices and offerings thou hast not desired, but a body hast thou prepared for me;6in burnt offerings and sin offerings thou hast taken no pleasure.7Then I said, `Lo, I have come to do thy will, O God, 'as it is written of me in the roll of the book."8When he said above, "Thou hast neither desired nor taken pleasure in sacrifices and offerings and burnt offerings and sin offerings" (these are offered according to the law),9then he added, "Lo, I have come to do thy will." He abolishes the first in order to establish the second.10And by that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Luke 1:26-38

    26In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, 27to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. 28And he came to her and said, "Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you!"29But she was greatly troubled at the saying, and considered in her mind what sort of greeting this might be. 30And the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. 31And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. 32He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, 33and he will reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there will be no end." 34And Mary said to the angel, "How shall this be, since I have no husband?" 35And the angel said to her, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God. 36And behold, your kinswoman Elizabeth in her old age has also conceived a son; and this is the sixth month with her who was called barren. 37For with God nothing will be impossible." 38And Mary said, "Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word." And the angel departed from her.

  • MONDAY SECOND WEEK OF EASTER 2013:

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 4:23-31

    After their release Peter and John went back to their own people
    and reported what the chief priests and elders had told them.
    And when they heard it,
    they raised their voices to God with one accord
    and said, "Sovereign Lord, maker of heaven and earth
    and the sea and all that is in them,
    you said by the Holy Spirit
    through the mouth of our father David, your servant:

    Why did the Gentiles rage
    and the peoples entertain folly?
    The kings of the earth took their stand
    and the princes gathered together
    against the Lord and against his anointed.

    Indeed they gathered in this city
    against your holy servant Jesus whom you anointed,
    Herod and Pontius Pilate,
    together with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel,
    to do what your hand and your will
    had long ago planned to take place.
    And now, Lord, take note of their threats,
    and enable your servants to speak your word
    with all boldness, as you stretch forth your hand to heal,
    and signs and wonders are done
    through the name of your holy servant Jesus."
    As they prayed, the place where they were gathered shook,
    and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit
    and continued to speak the word of God with boldness.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 2:1-3, 4-7a, 7b-9

    R. (see 11d) Blessed are all who take refuge in the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Why do the nations rage
    and the peoples utter folly?
    The kings of the earth rise up,
    and the princes conspire together
    against the LORD and against his anointed:
    "Let us break their fetters
    and cast their bonds from us!"
    R. Blessed are all who take refuge in the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    He who is throned in heaven laughs;
    the LORD derides them.
    Then in anger he speaks to them;
    he terrifies them in his wrath:
    "I myself have set up my king
    on Zion, my holy mountain."
    I will proclaim the decree of the LORD.
    R. Blessed are all who take refuge in the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    The LORD said to me, "You are my Son;
    this day I have begotten you.
    Ask of me and I will give you
    the nations for an inheritance
    and the ends of the earth for your possession.
    You shall rule them with an iron rod;
    you shall shatter them like an earthen dish."
    R. Blessed are all who take refuge in the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 3:1-8

    There was a Pharisee named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews.
    He came to Jesus at night and said to him,
    "Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God,
    for no one can do these signs that you are doing
    unless God is with him."
    Jesus answered and said to him,
    "Amen, amen, I say to you,
    unless one is born from above, he cannot see the Kingdom of God."
    Nicodemus said to him,
    "How can a man once grown old be born again?
    Surely he cannot reenter his mother's womb and be born again, can he?"
    Jesus answered,
    "Amen, amen, I say to you,
    unless one is born of water and Spirit
    he cannot enter the Kingdom of God.
    What is born of flesh is flesh
    and what is born of spirit is spirit.
    Do not be amazed that I told you,
    'You must be born from above.'
    The wind blows where it wills,
    and you can hear the sound it makes,
    but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes;
    so it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit."
