Ordinary Time. FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS 1 Kgs 19:19-21
Elijah set out, and came upon Elisha, son of Shaphat, as he was plowing with
twelve yoke of oxen; he was following the twelfth. Elijah went over to him
and threw his cloak over him. Elisha left the oxen, ran after Elijah, and said,
"Please, let me kiss my father and mother goodbye, and I will follow you."
Elijah answered, "Go back! Have I done anything to you?" Elisha left him and,
taking the yoke of oxen, slaughtered them; he used the plowing equipment
for fuel to boil their flesh, and gave it to his people to eat. Then he left and
followed Elijah as his attendant.

GOSPEL OF THE MASS Luke 2:41-51 Each year Jesus' parents went to
Jerusalem for the feast of Passover, and when he was twelve years old, they
went up according to festival custom. After they had completed its days, as
they were returning, the boy Jesus remained behind in Jerusalem, but his
parents did not know it. Thinking that he was in the caravan, they journeyed
for a day and looked for him among their relatives and acquaintances, but
not finding him, they returned to Jerusalem to look for him. After three
days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers,
listening to them and asking them questions, and all who heard him were
astounded at his understanding and his answers. When his parents saw him,
they were astonished, and his mother said to him, "Son, why have you done
this to us? Your father and I have been looking for you with great anxiety."
And he said to them, "Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I
