First Reading: Hebrews 11:1-7

A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Hebrews.

Brothers and sisters:

Faith is the assurance of things hoped for,
the conviction of things not seen.
For by it our ancestors received divine approval.
By faith, we understand that the world was created
by the word of God,
so that what is seen
was made from things which do not appear.

By faith, Abel offered to God
a more acceptable sacrifice than Cain,
through this he received approval as righteous,
God bearing witness by acceptin his gifts;
he died, but through his faith, he still speaking.
By faith Enoch was taken so that he should not see death;
and he was not found, because God had taken him.
Now before he was taken
he was as having pleased God.
and without faith, it is impossible to please him.
For whoever would draw near to God
must believe that he exists
and that he rewards those who seek him.
By faith Noah,
warned by God about events as yet unseen,
took heed and constructed an ark for the saving of his household;
by this, he condemned the world
and became an heir to the righteousness which comes by faith.

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 145:2-3.4-5.10-11 (R. see 1b)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm

R/. I will bless your name, O Lord, forever.

I will bless you day after day,
and praise your name forever and ever.
The Lord is great and highly to be praised;
his greatness cannot be measured.

Age to age shall proclaim your works,
shall declare your mighty deeds.
They will tell of your great glory and splendour,
and recount your wonderful works.

All your works shall thank you, O Lord,
and all your faithful ones bless you.
They shall speak of the glory of your reign,
and declare your mighty deeds,

R/. I will bless your name, O Lord, forever.


Alleluia, Alleluia.
The heavens opened, and the Father’s voice was heard: “This is my Beloved Son; listen to him.”

Gospel: Mark 9:2-13

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark.

At that time:
Jesus took with him Peter and James and John,
and led them up a high mountain apart by themselves;
and he was transfigured before them,
and his garments became glistening, intensely white,
as no fuller on earth could bleach them.
And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses;
and they were talking to Jesus.
And Peter said to Jesus,
“Master, it is well that we are here;
let us make three booths,
one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.”
For he did not know what to say,
for they were exceedingly afraid.

And a cloud overshadowed them,
and a voice came out of the cloud,
“This is my beloved Son; listen to him.”
And suddenly looking around
they no longer saw any one with them but Jesus only.

And as they were coming down the mountain,
he charged them to tell no one what they had seen,
until the Son of man should have risen from the dead.
So they kept the matter to themselves,
questioning what the rising from the dead meant.
And they asked him,
“Why do the scribes say that first Elijah must come?”

And he said to them,
“Elijah does come first to restore all things;
and how is it written of the Son of man,
that he should suffer many things
and be treated with contempt?
But I tell you that Elijah has come,
and they did to him whatever they pleased,
as it is written of him.”

The Gospel of the Lord.
