Listen: (the Gospel reading) (Mark 10:46-52)

At that time: As Jesus was leaving Jericho with his disciples and a great multitude, Bartimaeus, a blind beggar, the son of Timaeus, was sitting by the roadside gimagex 다운로드. And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” And many rebuked him, telling him to be silent; but he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” And Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” And they called the blind man, saying to him, “Take heart; rise, he is calling you.” And throwing off his cloak he sprang up and came to Jesus 앵커 태그.

The Gospel of the Lord.

Christians who do not know what it really means to follow the Master are still blind; and can be obstacles to those who want to have their eyes opened fully 페도라 13. Jesus’ call is not addressed directly to the blind man; but relayed by somebody else. Such mediators represent the true disciples of Christ; Christians who hear and understand the cries of those looking for the light, and spend a lot of their time listening to the problems and difficulties of others and show them the way to the Master 바람의나라 연 다운로드. For those who, after receiving the light of Christ, follow the Master along the road: he is a traveling companion who can understand our weakness.

Sunday Readings

FIRST READING Jeremiah 31:7-9

“With consolations I will lead them back, among them the blind and the lame.”

A reading from the Book of Jeremiah

Thus says the Lord: “Sing aloud with gladness for Jacob, and raise shouts for the chief of the nations; proclaim, give praise, and say, ‘The Lord has saved his people, the remnant of Israel.’ Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the farthest parts of the earth, among them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her who is in travail, together; a great company, they shall return here. With weeping they shall come, and with consolations I will lead them back, I will make them walk by brooks of water, in a straight path in which they shall not stumble; for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my first-born.”

The word of the Lord.
RESPONSORIAL PSALM
Psalm 126

What great deeds the Lord worked for us! Indeed, we were glad.

When the Lord brought back the exiles of Sion, we thought we were dreaming. Then was our mouth filled with laughter; on our tongues, songs of joy. R.

What great deeds the Lord worked for us! Indeed, we were glad.

Then the nations themselves said, “What great deeds the Lord worked for them!” What great deeds the Lord worked for us! Indeed, we were glad. R.

What great deeds the Lord worked for us! Indeed, we were glad.

Bring back our exiles, O Lord, as streams in the south. Those who are sowing in tears will sing when they reap. R.

What great deeds the Lord worked for us! Indeed, we were glad.

They go out, they go out, full of tears, bearing seed for the sowing; they come back, they come back with a song, bearing their sheaves. R.

What great deeds the Lord worked for us! Indeed, we were glad.









SECOND READING Hebrews 5:1-6

“You are a priest for ever, according to the order of Melchizedek.”

A reading from the Letter to the Hebrews

Every high priest chosen from among men is appointed to act on behalf of men in relation to God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. He can deal gently with the ignorant and wayward, since he himself is beset with weakness. Because of this he is bound to offer sacrifice for his own sins as well as for those of the people. And one does not take the honour upon himself, but he is called by God, just as Aaron was. So also Christ did not exalt himself to be made a high priest, but was appointed by him who said to him, “You are my Son, today I have begotten you”; as he says also in another place, “You are a priest for ever, according to the order of Melchizedek.”

The word of the Lord.

Alleluia. Our Saviour Christ Jesus abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel. Alleluia.    
 
GOSPEL READING Mark 10:46-52
