Entrance Antiphon – Psalm 27:8-9
The Lord is the strength of his people, a saving refuge for the one he has anointed. Save your people, O Lord, and bless your heritage, and govern them forever.


First Reading – Job 38:1, 8-11
The Lord addressed Job out of the storm and said: Who shut within doors the sea, when it burst forth from the womb; when I made the clouds its garment and thick darkness its swaddling bands? When I set limits for it and fastened the bar of its door, and said: Thus far shall you come but no farther, and here shall your proud waves be stilled!


Responsorial – Psalm 107:23-26, 28-31
Give thanks to the Lord, his love is everlasting.


Second Reading – 2 Corinthians 5:14-17
Brothers and sisters: The love of Christ impels us, once we have come to the conviction that one died for all; therefore, all have died. He indeed died for all, so that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised. Consequently, from now on we regard no one according to the flesh; even if we once knew Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know him so no longer. So whoever is in Christ is a new creation: the old things have passed away; behold, new things have come.


Alleluia – Luke 7:16
A great prophet has risen in our midst; God has visited his people.


Gospel – Mark 4:35-41
On that day, as evening drew on, Jesus said to his disciples: “Let us cross to the other side.” Leaving the crowd, they took Jesus with them in the boat just as he was. And other boats were with him. A violent squall came up and waves were breaking over the boat, so that it was already filling up. Jesus was in the stern, asleep on a cushion. They woke him and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” He woke up, rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Quiet!  Be still!” The wind ceased and there was great calm. Then he asked them, “Why are you terrified? Do you not yet have faith?” They were filled with great awe and said to one another, “Who then is this whom even wind and sea obey?”


Offertory Antiphon – Psalm 16:5-7
Make me to walk perfectly in your paths, that my footsteps may not falter. Incline your ear to me, and hear my words, show forth your wonderful mercies, you who save those who trust in you, O Lord.


Communion Antiphon – Psalm 144:15
The eyes of all look to you, O Lord, and you give them their food in due season.

Introit – Psalm 26:1-3
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? My enemies that trouble me, themselves stumble and fall.

Ps. Though an army encamp against me, my heart will not fear.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Collect
Grant us, we beseech You, O Lord, that the course of the world may be directed according to Your rule in peace and that Your Church may have the joy of serving You undisturbed.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who lives and reigns with Thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.
R. Amen.

Epistle – Romans 8:18-23
Brethren: I reckon that the sufferings of the present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory to come that will be revealed in us. For the eager longing of creation awaits the revelation of the sons of God. For creation was made subject to vanity - not by its own will but by reason of Him Who made it subject - in hope, because creation itself also will be delivered from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the sons of God. For we know that all creation groans and travails in pain until now. And not only it, but we ourselves also who have the first-fruits of the Spirit - we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption as sons of God, the redemption of our body, in Christ Jesus our Lord.


Gradual – Psalm 78:9-10; 9:5, 10
Pardon our sins, O Lord; why should the nations say, Where is their God?

V. Help us, O God our Saviour; because of the glory of Your name, O Lord, deliver us.
V. Alleluia, alleluia. O God, seated on Your throne, judging justly: be a stronghold for the oppressed in times of distress. Alleluia.

Gospel – Luke 5:1-11
At that time, while the crowds were pressing upon Jesus to hear the word of God, He was standing by Lake Genesareth. And He saw two boats moored by the lake, but the fishermen had left them and were washing their nets. And getting into one of the boats, the one that was Simon’s, He asked him to put out a little from the land. And sitting down, He began to teach the crowds from the boat. But when He had ceased speaking, He said to Simon, Put out into the deep, and lower your nets for a catch. And Simon answered and said to Him, Master, the whole night through we have toiled and have taken nothing; but at Your word I will lower the net. And when they had done so, they enclosed a great number of fishes, but their net was breaking. And they beckoned to their comrades in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. But when Simon Peter saw this, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord. For he and all who were with him were amazed at the catch of fish they had made; and so were also James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, Do not be afraid; henceforth you shall catch men. And when they had brought their boats to land, they left all and followed Him.


Offertory – Psalm 12:4-5
Give light to my eyes that I may never sleep in death, lest my enemy say, I have overcome him.


Secret
Be appeased, we beseech You, O Lord, by accepting our offerings, and in Your kindness make even our rebellious wills turn to You.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who lives and reigns with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.
R. Amen.

Communion – Psalm 17:3
O Lord, my rock, my fortress, my deliverer: my God, my rock of refuge!


Post Communion
May the sacrament we have received cleanse us, we beseech You, O Lord, and by its grace protect us.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who lives and reigns with Thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.
Amen.

ORDINARY FORM – Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Entrance Antiphon – Psalm 46:2
All peoples, clap your hands. Cry to God with shouts of joy!


First Reading – Wisdom 1:13-15; 2:23-24
God did not make death, nor does he rejoice in the destruction of the living. For he fashioned all things that they might have being; and the creatures of the world are wholesome, and there is not a destructive drug among them nor any domain of the netherworld on earth, for justice is undying. For God formed man to be imperishable; the image of his own nature he made him. But by the envy of the devil, death entered the world, and they who belong to his company experience it.


Responsorial – Psalm 30:2, 4-6, 11-13
I will praise you, Lord, for you have rescued me.


Second Reading – 2 Corinthians 8:7, 9, 13-15
Brothers and sisters: As you excel in every respect, in faith, discourse, knowledge, all earnestness, and in the love we have for you, may you excel in this gracious act also. For you know the gracious act of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, for your sake he became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich. Not that others should have relief while you are burdened, but that as a matter of equality your abundance at the present time should supply their needs, so that their abundance may also supply your needs, that there may be equality. As it is written: “Whoever had much did not have more, and whoever had little did not have less.”


Alleluia – cf. 2 Timothy 1:10
Our Savior Jesus Christ destroyed death and brought life to light through the Gospel.


Gospel – Mark 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 and pressed upon 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 Jesus, “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.

Offertory Antiphon – Daniel 3:40
As in holocausts of rams and bullocks, and as in thousands of fat lambs, so let our sacrifice be made in your sight this day, that it may please you, for there is no confusion to them that trust in you, O Lord.


Communion Antiphon – Psalm 120:1
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all within me, bless his holy name.

Introit – Psalm 26:7, 9, 1
Hear, O Lord, the sound of my call; be my helper: forsake me not: despise me not, O God my Saviour.

Ps. The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom should I fear?
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Collect
O God, You Who have prepared good things as yet unseen for those who love You, pour a burning love into our hearts, so that we, loving You in and above all things, may obtain Your promises which surpass all desire.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who lives and reigns with Thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.
R. Amen.

Epistle – 1 Peter 3:8-15
Beloved: Be all like-minded in prayer, compassionate, lovers of the brethren, merciful, reserved, humble; not rendering evil for evil, or abuse for abuse, but contrariwise, blessing; for unto this were you called that you might inherit a blessing. For, He who would love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no deceit. Let him turn away from evil and do good, let him seek after peace and pursue it. For the eyes of the Lord are upon the just, and His ears unto their prayers; but the face of the lord is against those who do evil. And who is there to harm you, if you are zealous for what is good? But even if you suffer anything for justice’ sake, blessed are you. So have no fear of their fear and do not be troubled. But hallow the Lord Christ in your hearts.


Gradual – Psalm 83:10, 9; 20:1
Behold, O God, our protector, and look on Your servants.

V. O Lord God of Hosts, hear the prayers of Your servants.
V. Alleluia, alleluia. O Lord, in Your strength the king is glad; in Your victory how greatly he rejoices! Alleluia.

Gospel – Matthew 5:20-24
At that time, Jesus said to His disciples: Unless your justice exceeds that of the Scribes and Pharisees, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven. You have heard that it was said to the ancients, ‘You shall not kill’; and that whoever shall kill shall be liable to judgment. But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be liable to judgment; and whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca,’ shall be liable to the Sanhedrin; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’, shall be liable to the fire of Gehenna. Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar, and there remember that your brother has anything against you, leave your gift before the altar and go first to be reconciled to your brother; and then come and offer your gift.


Offertory – Psalm 15:7-8
I bless the Lord Who counsels me; I set God ever before me; with Him at my right hand I shall not be disturbed.


Secret
Be favorable, O Lord, to our humble prayers, and graciously accept these offerings of Your servants, men and women, that what each has offered to the honor of Your name may profit for the salvation of all.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who lives and reigns with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.
R. Amen.

Communion – Psalm 26:4
One thing I ask of the Lord; this I seek: to dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.


Post Communion
Grant us, we beseech You, O Lord, that we whom You have filled with the heavenly gift may be cleansed of our hidden sins and delivered from the snares of our enemies.

Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who lives and reigns with Thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.
Amen.
