8th week of Ordinary Time
Readings on p.876  and Antiphons on p.869  of the Daily Missal.

Entrance Antiphon.
The Lord became my protector.  He brought me out to a place of freedom; he saved me because he delighted in me.

First Reading: 1 Peter 1:3-9

The beginning of the first Letter of Saint Peter.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!
By his great mercy we have been born anew to a living hope
through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
and to an inheritance which is imperishable,
undefiled, and unfading,
kept in heaven for you,
who by God’s power are guarded through faith
for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
In this you rejoice,
though now for a little while
you may have to suffer various trials,
so that the genuineness of your faith,
more precious than gold
which though perishable is tested by fire,
may redound to praise and glory and honour
at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
Without having seen him you love him;
though you do not now see him you believe in him
and rejoice with unutterable and exalted joy.
As the outcome of your faith
you obtain the salvation of your souls.

The Word of the Lord.

 

 

 

Responsorial psalm: Ps 111:1b-2.5.6-9 and 10c (R.5b)

R./ The Lord keeps his covenant ever in mind.

I will praise the Lord with all my heart,
in the meeting of the just and the assembly.
Great are the works of the Lord,
to be pondered by all who delight in them.

He gives food to those who fear him;
keeps his covenant ever in mind.
His mighty works he has shown to his people
by giving them the heritage of nations.

He has sent redemption to his people,
and established his covenant forever.
Holy his name, to be feared.
His praise endures forever!

R./ The Lord keeps his covenant ever in mind.

 

Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, Alleluia.
Though Jesus Christ was rich, yet for your sake he became poor,
so that by his poverty you might become rich.
Alleluia.

 

 

 

Gospel: Mark 10:17-27

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark.

At that time:
As Jesus was setting out on his journey,
a man ran up and knelt before him, and asked him,
“Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

And Jesus said to him,
“Why do you call me good?
No one is good but God alone.
You know the commandments:
‘Do not kill,
Do not commit adultery,
Do not steal,
Do not bear false witness,
Do not defraud,
Honour your father and mother.’”

And he said to him, “Teacher,
all these I have observed from my youth.”

And Jesus looking upon him loved him,
and said to him, “You lack one thing;
go, sell what you have, and give to the poor,
and you will have treasure in heaven;
and come, follow me.”

At that saying his countenance fell,
and he went away sorrowful;
for he had great possessions.

And Jesus looked around and said to his disciples,
“How hard it will be for those who have riches
to enter the kingdom of God!”
And the disciples were amazed at his words.
But Jesus said to them again,
“Children, how hard it is for those who trust in riches
to enter the kingdom of God!
It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle
than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

And they were exceedingly astonished, and said to him,
“Then who can be saved?”

Jesus looked at them and said,
“With people it is impossible, but not with God;
for all things are possible with God.”

The Gospel of the Lord.

 

Communion Antiphon.
I will sing to the Lord who has been bountiful with me; sing psalms to the name of the Lord Most High
