READING I (Jer 1:4-5.17-19) -sit-
"I have appointed you a prophet to the nations."
L. A reading from the prophet Jeremiah:
The word of the LORD came to me, saying: Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I dedicated you, a prophet to the nations I appointed you. But do you gird your loins; stand up and tell them all that I command you. Be not crushed on their account, as though I would leave you crushed before them; for it is I this day who have made you a fortified city, a pillar of iron, a wall of brass, against the whole land: against Judah’s kings and princes, against its priests and people. They will fight against you but not prevail over you, for I am with you to deliver you, says the LORD.
L. The word of the Lord.
P. Thanks be to God
Pada masa Raja Yosia turunlah firman Tuhan kepadaku, Yeremia, sebagai berikut, “Sebelum Aku membentuk engkau dalam rahim ibumu, Aku telah mengenal engkau. Dan sebelum engkau dilahirkan, Aku telah menguduskan engkau; Aku telah menetapkan engkau menjadi nabi bagi bangsa-bangsa. Maka, baiklah engkau bersiap, bangkitlah dan sampaikanlah kepada mereka, segala yang Kuperintahkan kepadamu. Janganlah gentar terhadap mereka, supaya jangan Aku menggentarkan engkau di depan mereka! Mengenai Aku, sungguh, pada hari ini Aku membuat engkau menjadi kota yang berkubu menjadi tiang besi dan menjadi tembok tembaga melawan seluruh negeri ini, menentang raja-raja Yehuda dan pemuka-pemukanya, menentang para imamnya dan rakyat negeri ini. Mereka akan memerangi engkau, tetapi tidak akan mengalahkan engkau. Sebab Aku menyertai engkau untuk melepaskan engkau.”
RESPONSORIAL PSALM (Ps 71:1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 15-17) -sit-
Refrein: I will sing of your salvation.
1. In you, O LORD, I take refuge;
let me never be put to shame.
In your justice rescue me, and deliver me;
incline your ear to me, and save me.
2. Be my rock of refuge,
a stronghold to give me safety,
for you are my rock and my fortress.
O my God, rescue me from the hand of the wicked.
3. For you are my hope, O Lord;
my trust, O God, from my youth.
On you I depend from birth;
from my mother’s womb you are my strength.
4. My mouth shall declare your justice,
day by day your salvation.
O God, you have taught me from my youth,
and till the present I proclaim your wondrous deeds.
READING II (1Tes 3:12 - 4:2) -sit-
"But now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love."
L. A reading from the first letter of St Paul to the Corinthians
Brothers and sisters: Strive eagerly for the greatest spiritual gifts. But I shall show you a still more excellent way If I speak in human and angelic tongues, but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal. And if I have the gift of prophecy, and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge; if I have all faith so as to move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give away everything I own, and if I hand my body over so that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, it is not pompous, It is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. If there are prophecies, they will be brought to nothing; if tongues, they will cease; if knowledge, it will be brought to nothing. For we know partially and we prophesy partially, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. When I was a child, I used to talk as a child, think as a child, reason as a child; when I became a man, I put aside childish things. At present we see indistinctly, as in a mirror, but then face to face. At present I know partially; then I shall know fully, as I am fully known. So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
L. The word of the Lord.
P. Thanks be to God                  
Saudara-saudara, berusahalah memperoleh karunia-karunia yang paling utama. Dan aku menunjukkan kepadamu jalan yang lebih utama lagi. Sekalipun aku dapat berbicara dalam semua bahasa manusia dan malaikat, tetapi jika tidak mempunyai kasih, aku seperti gong yang bergaung atau canang yang gemerincing. Sekalipun aku mempunyai karunia bernubuat dan aku mengetahui segala rahasia serta memiliki seluruh pengetahuan; sekalipun aku memiliki iman sempurna untuk memindahkan gunung, tetapi jika tidak mempunyai kasih, aku sama sekali tidak berguna. Sekalipun aku membagi-bagikan segala sesuatu yang ada padaku, bahkan menyerahkan tubuhku untuk dibakar, tetapi jika aku tidak mempunyai kasih, sedikit pun tidak ada faedahnya bagiku. (Kasih itu sabar, murah hati dan tidak cemburu. Kasih itu tidak memegahkan diri, tidak sombong dan tidak bertindak kurang sopan. Kasih itu tidak mencari keuntungan diri sendiri, tidak cepat marah dan tidak menyimpan kesalahan orang lain. Kasih tidak bersukacita atas kelaliman, tetapi atas kebenaran. Kasih menutupi segala sesuatu, percaya akan segala sesuatu, mengharapkan segala sesuatu, sabar menanggung segala sesuatu. Kasih tidak berkesudahan. Nubuat akan berakhir, bahasa roh akan berhenti, dan pengetahuan akan lenyap. Sebab pengetahuan kita tidak lengkap, dan nubuat kita tidak sempurna. Tetapi jika yang sempurna tiba, hilanglah yang tidak sempurna itu. Ketika masih kanak-kanak, aku berbicara seperti kanak-kanak, merasa seperti kanak-kanak, dan berpikir seperti kanak-kanak pula. Tetapi sekarang, setelah menjadi dewasa, aku meninggalkan sifat kanak-kanak itu. Sekarang kita melihat gambaran samara-samar seperti dalam cermin, tetapi nanti dari muka ke muka. Sekarang aku mengenal secara tidak sempurna, tetapi nanti aku akan mengenal dengan sempurna, sebagaimana aku sendiri dikenal. Demikianlah tinggal ketiga hal ini: iman, harapan, dan kasih; dan yang paling besar di antaranya ialah kasih).

(5 4 3 2 3 3 4 3 2)

Verse. The Lord sent me to bring glad tidings to the poor, to proclaim liberty to captives.
Tuhan mengutus Aku memaklumkan Injil kepada orang yang hina dina, dan mewartakan pembebasan kepada orang tawanan.
GOSPEL (Luk 4:21-30) -stand-
 "No prophet is welcome in his home town."
C. The Lord be with you,
P. And with your spirit
C. A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke
C. Glory to you, O Lord
P. Jesus began speaking in the synagogue, saying: “Today this Scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing.” And all spoke highly of him and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his mouth. They also asked, “Isn’t this the son of Joseph?” He said to them, “Surely you will quote me this proverb, ‘Physician, cure yourself,’ and say, ‘Do here in your native place the things that we heard were done in Capernaum.’” And he said, “Amen, I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his own native place. Indeed, I tell you, there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah when the sky was closed for three and a half years and a severe famine spread over the entire land. It was to none of these that Elijah was sent, but only to a widow in Zarephath in the land of Sidon. Again, there were many lepers in Israel during the time of Elisha the prophet; yet not one of them was cleansed, but only Naaman the Syrian.” When the people in the synagogue heard this, they were all filled with fury. They rose up, drove him out of the town, and led him to the brow of the hill on which their town had been built, to hurl him down headlong. But Jesus passed through the midst of them and went away.

C. The Gospel of the Lord
P. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
Sekali peristiwa Yesus mengajar orang banyak di rumah ibadat di kota asalnya, kata-Nya, “Pada hari ini genaplah nas Kitab Suci pada waktu kamu mendengarnya.” Mereka heran akan kata-kata indah yang diucapkan-Nya.Lalu mereka berkata, “Bukankah Dia ini anak Yusuf?” Maka berkatalah Yesus kepada mereka, “Tentu kamu akan mengatakan pepatah ini kepada-Ku: Hai Tabib, sembuhkanlah dirimu sendiri! Perbuatlah di sini, di tempat asal-Mu ini, segala yang kami dengar telah terjadi di Kapernaum!” Yesus berkata lagi, “Aku berkata kepadamu: Sungguh, tidak ada nabi yang dihargai di tempat asalnya. Aku berkata kepadamu, dan kata-Ku ini benar: Pada zaman Elia terdapat banyak wanita janda di Israel, ketika langit tertutup selama tiga tahun enam bulan dan ketika bahaya kelaparan yang hebat menimpa seluruh negeri. Tetapi Elia diutus bukan kepada salah seorang dari mereka, melainkan kepada seorang janda di Sarfat, di tanah Sidon. Dan pada zaman nabi Elisa banyak orang kusta di Israel, tetapi tidak ada seorang pun dari mereka yang ditahirkan, selain Naaman, orang Siria itu.” Mendengar itu sangat marahlah semua orang di rumah ibadat itu. Mereka bangkit, lalu menghalau Yesus ke luar kota, dan membawa Dia ke tebing gunung tempat kota itu terletak, untuk melemparkan Dia dari tebing itu. Tetapi Yesus berjalan lewat dari tengah-tengah mereka, lalu pergi.

CREED (Nicea) -stand-  
C + P: I believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages.
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven,
At the words that follow, up to and including and became man, all bow.

and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead
and his kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins
and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead
and the life of the world to come. Amen

P. And with your spirit. 
C. Lift up your hearts.
P. We lift them up to the Lord.
C. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
P. It is right and just.
C. It is truly right and just, our duty and our salvation, always and everywhere to give you thanks, Lord, holy Father, almighty and eternal God, through Christ our Lord. For by his birth he brought renewal to humanity's fallen state, and by his suffering, canceled out our sins; by his rising from the dead he has opened the way to eternal life, and by ascending to you, O Father, he has unlocked the gates of heaven. And so, with the company of Angels and Saints, we sing the hymn of your praise, as without end we acclaim:

C. You are indeed Holy, O Lord, and all you have created rightly gives you praise, for through your Son our Lord Jesus Christ, by the power and working of the Holy Spirit, you give life to all things and make them holy, and you never cease to gather a people to yourself, so that from the rising of the sun to its setting a pure sacrifice may be offered to your name.
Therefore, O Lord, we humbly implore you: by the same Spirit graciously make holy these gifts we have brought to you for consecration, 
that they may become the Body and (+) Blood of your Son our Lord Jesus Christ,  at whose command we celebrate these mysteries.  
For on the night he was betrayed he himself took bread, and, giving you thanks, he said the blessing, broke the bread and gave it to his disciples, saying:
Take this, all of you, and eat of it, for this is my Body, which will be given up for you.
In a similar way, when supper was ended, he took the chalice, and, giving you thanks, he said the blessing, and gave the chalice to his disciples, saying:
Take this, all of you, and drink from it, for this is the chalice of my blood, the Blood of the new and eternal covenant, which will be poured out for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. do this in memory of me.

Mystery of Faith
C. The mystery of faith.
C. Therefore, O Lord, as we celebrate the memorial of the saving Passion of your Son, his wondrous Resurrection and Ascension into heaven, and as we look forward to his second coming, we offer you in thanksgiving this holy and living sacrifice. Look, we pray, upon the oblation of your Church and, recognizing the sacrificial Victim by whose death you willed to reconcile us to yourself, grant that we, who are nourished by the Body and Blood of your Son and filled with his Holy Spirit, may become one body, one spirit in Christ.
May he make of us an eternal offering to you, so that we may obtain an inheritance with your elect, especially with the most Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, with your blessed Apostles and glorious Martyrs (with Saint N.: the Saint of the day or Patron Saint) and with all the Saints, on whose constant intercession in your presence we rely for unfailing help.

May this Sacrifice of our reconciliation, we pray, O Lord, advance the peace and salvation of all the world Be pleased to confirm in faith and charity your pilgrim Church on earth, with your servant N. our Pope and N. our Bishop,* the Order of Bishops, all the clergy, and the entire people you have gained for your own. Listen graciously to the prayers of this family, whom you have summoned before you: in your compassion, O merciful Father, gather to yourself all your children scattered throughout the world. † To our departed brothers and sisters and to all who were pleasing to you at their passing from this life, give kind admittance to your kingdom. There we hope to enjoy for ever the fullness of your glory through Christ our Lord, through whom you bestow on the world all that is good. †
C. Through him, and with him, and in him, O God, almighty Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, all glory and honor is yours, for ever and ever.
