James 1:1-11; Mark 8:11-13


Memorial of Ss. Cyril and Methodius. Year II
Readings on p. 831 and Antiphons on p. 1570 of the Daily Missal.

Entrance Antiphon.

These are holy men who became friends of God, glorious heralds of divine truth.

First Reading: James 1:1-11

The beginning of the Letter of Saint James.

James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ,
To the twelve tribes in the Dispersion:
Greeting.

Count it all joy, my brothers and sisters, when you meet various trials,
for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.
And let steadfastness have its full effect,
that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God,
who gives to all people generously and without reproaching,
and it will be given him.
But let him ask in faith, with no doubting,
for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea
that is driven and tossed by the wind.
For that person must not suppose that a double-minded man,
unstable in all his ways,
will receive anything from the Lord.

Let the lowly brother boast in his exaltation,
and the rich in his humiliation,
because like the flower of the grass he will pass away.
For the sun rises with its scorching heat and withers the grass;
its flower falls, and its beauty perishes.
So will the rich person fade away in the midst of his pursuits.

The Word of the Lord.

 

 

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 119:67.68.71.72.75.76 (R. 77a)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. Show me compassion, Lord, that I may live.

Before I was humbled, I strayed,
but now I keep your word.

You are good, and you do what is good;
teach me your statutes.

It was good for me to be humbled,
that I might learn your statutes.

The law from your mouth means more to me
than large quantities of silver and gold.

O Lord, I know that your decrees are right;
though I am humbled, you are just.

Let your merciful love console me
by your promise to your servant.

R/. Show me compassion, Lord, that I may live.

Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, Alleluia.
I am the way and the truth and the life, says the Lord;
no one comes to the Father but by me.
Alleluia.

 

 

 

Gospel: Mark 8:11-13

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark.

At that time:
The Pharisees came and began to argue with Jesus,
seeking from him a sign from heaven, to test him.
And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and said,
“Why does this generation seek a sign?
Truly, I say to you,
no sign shall be given to this generation.”
And he left them, and getting into the boat again
he departed to the other side.

The Gospel of the Lord.

 

 

Communion Antiphon.
The disciples went forth and preached the Gospel while the Lord worked with them, confirming the word through accompanying signs.
