First Reading: Hebrews 11:1-2.8-19

A reading from the Letter to the Hebrews

Brothers and sisters:
Faith is the assurance of things hoped for,
the conviction of things not seen.
For by it the people of old received divine approval.

By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called
to go out to a place which he was to receive as an inheritance;
and he went out, not knowing where he was to go.
By faith he sojourned in the land of promise,
as in a foreign land, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob,
heirs with him of the same promise.
For he looked forward to the city which has foundations,
whose builder and maker is God.

By faith Sarah herself received power to conceive,
even when she was past the age,
since she considered him faithful who had promised.
Therefore, from one man, and him as good as dead,
were born descendants as many as the stars of heaven
and as the innumerable grains of sand by the seashore.

These all died in faith,
not having received what was promised,
but having seen it and greeted it from afar,
and having acknowledged that they were strangers
and exiles on the earth.

For people who speak thus
make it clear that they are seeking a homeland.
If they had been thinking of that land
from which they had gone out,
they would have had opportunity to return.
But as it is, they desire a better country,
that is, a heavenly one.

Therefore, God is not ashamed to be called their God,
for he has prepared for them a city.
By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac,
and he who had received the promises
was ready to offer up his only-begotten son,
of whom it was said,
“Through Isaac shall your descendants be named.”
He considered that God was able to raise men
even from the dead;
hence he did receive him back,
and this was a symbol.

The Word of the Lord




Responsorial Psalm: Luke 1:69-75 (R. see 68)

Let us pray the Responsorial Psalm.

R/. Blessed be the Lord God of Israel,
for he has visited his people

He has raised up a horn of salvation for us
in the house of his servant David,
as he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets from of old.

That we should be saved from our enemies,
and from the hand of all who hate us;
to perform the mercy promised to our fathers,
and to remember his holy covenant.

The oath which he swore to our father Abraham, to grant us
that we, being delivered from the hand of our enemies,
might serve him without fear,
in holiness and righteousness before him
all the days of our life.

R/.  Blessed be the Lord God of Israel,
for he has visited his people


Gospel Acclamation:
Alleluia, Alleluia.

God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son; that whoever believes in him should have eternal life.



Gospel: Mark 4:35-41

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Mark

On that day, when evening had come,
Jesus said to his disciples,
“Let us go across to the other side.”
And leaving the crowd, they took him with them,
just as he was, in the boat.
And other boats were with him.

And a great storm of wind arose,
and the waves beat into the boat,
so that the boat was already filling.
But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion
and they woke him up and said to him,
“Teacher, do you not care if we perish?”

And he awoke and rebuked the wind,
and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!
And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
He said to them, “Why are you afraid?
Have you no faith?

And they were filled with awe,
and said to one another, “Who then is this,
that even wind and sea obey him?”

The Gospel of the Lord
