First Reading: Tobit 11:5-15

A reading from the Book of Tobit

In those days:
Anna sat looking intently down the road for her son.
And she caught sight of him coming, and said to his father,
“Behold, your son is coming,
and so is the man who went with him!”

Raphael said to Tobias, before they approached his father
“I know that his eyes will be opened.
Smear the gall of the fish on his eyes
and the medicine will cause the white films to fall away.
And your father will regain his sight and see the light”

Then Anna ran to meet them,
and embraced her son, and said to him,
“I have seen you, my child; now I am ready to die.”
And she wept.
Tobit got up,
and came stumbling out through the courtyard door.
But his son ran to him with the gall of the fish in his hand,
and holding him firmly, he blew into his eyes,
saying, “Take courage, father.”
With this he applied the medicine to his eyes.
Next with both his hands,
he peeled off the white films from the corners of his eyes.
Then he saw his son and embraced him,
and he wept and said
“Here I see my son, the light of my eyes!”
Then he said “Blessed be God
and blessed be his great name,
and blessed be all his holy angels.
May his holy name be blessed throughout all the ages.
Though he afflicted me, he has had mercy on me.
Now I see my son Tobias

The Word of the Lord

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 146:1b.2.6c.7.8-9a.9bc-10 (R. 1b)

Let us pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. My soul, give praise to the Lord!

My soul, give praise to the Lord;
I will praise the Lord all my life,
sing praise to my God while I live.

It is the Lord who preserves fidelity forever,
who does justice to those who are oppressed.
It is he who gives bread to the hungry,
the Lord who sets prisoners free,

It is the Lord who opens the eyes of the blind,
the Lord who raises up those who are bowed down.
It is the Lord who loves the just,
the Lord who protects the stranger

The Lord upholds the orphan and the widow,
but thwarts the path of the wicked.
The Lord will reign forever,
the God of Sion from age to age.

R/. My soul, give praise to the Lord!

Alleluia, alleluia.
If a man loves me, he will keep my word, says the Lord; and my Father will love him, and we will come to him.


Gospel: Mark 12:35-37

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark

At that time:
As Jesus taught in the temple, he said,
“How can the scribes say
that the Christ is the son of David?
David himself, inspired by the Holy Spirit, declared,
‘The Lord said to my Lord,
Sit at my right hand,
till I put your enemies under your feet.’
David himself calls him Lord;
so how is he, his son?”
And the great throng heard him gladly.
