Sunday Readings

FIRST READING Wisdom 2:12.17-20

“Let us condemn him to a shameful death.”

A reading from the Book of Wisdom

[Ungodly men said:] “Let us lie in wait for the righteous man, because he is inconvenient to us and opposes our actions; he reproaches us for sins against the law, and accuses us of sins against our training. “Let us see if his words are true, and let us test what will happen at the end of his life; for if the righteous man is God’s son, he will help him, and will deliver him from the hand of his adversaries. Let us test him with insult and torture, that we may find out how gentle he is, and make trial of his forbearance. Let us condemn him to a shameful death, for, according to what he says, he will be protected.”

The word of the Lord.
RESPONSORIAL PSALM
Psalm 54

Behold, the Lord is the upholder of my life.

O God, save me by your name; by your power, defend my cause. O God, hear my prayer; give ear to the words of my mouth.R.

Behold, the Lord is the upholder of my life.

For the proud have risen against me, and the ruthless seek my life. They have no regard for God.R.

Behold, the Lord is the upholder of my life.

See, I have God for my help. The Lord sustains my soul. I will sacrifice to you with willing heart, and praise your name, for it is good.R.

Behold, the Lord is the upholder of my life.









SECOND READING James 3:16-4:3

“The harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.”

A reading from the Letter of Saint James

Beloved: Where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, without uncertainty or insincerity. And the harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. What causes wars, and what causes fightings among you? Is it not your passions that are at war in your members? You desire and do not have; so you kill. And you covet and cannot obtain; so you fight and wage war. You do not have, because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.

The word of the Lord.

Alleluia. God has called us through the Gospel, to obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Alleluia.    
 
GOSPEL READING Mark 9:30-37

And they came to Capernaum; and when he was in the house he asked them, “What were you discussing on the way?” But they were silent; for on the way they had discussed with one another who was the greatest.
