Mark 8:1-10
First Reading: 1 Kings 11:4-13Mark 8:1-10

A reading from the First Book of Kings.Mark 8:1-10

When Solomon was old
his wives turned away his heart after other gods;
and his heart was not wholly true to the Lord his God,
as was the heart of David his father.
For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians,
and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.
So Solomon did what was evil in the sight of the Lord,
and did not wholly follow the Lord,
as David his father had done.
Then Solomon built a high place for Chemosh
the abomination of Moab
and for Molech the abomination of the Ammonites,
on the mountain east of Jerusalem.
And so he did for all his foreign wives,
who burned incense and sacrificed to their gods.Mark 8:1-10

And the Lord was angry with Solomon
because his heart had turned away from the Lord,
the God of Israel,
who had appeared to him twice,
and had commanded him concerning this thing,
that he should not go after other gods;
but he did not keep what the Lord commanded.
Therefore the Lord said to Solomon,
“Since this has been your mind
and you have not kept my covenant
and my statutes which I have commanded you,
I will surely tear the kingdom from you
and will give it to your servant.
Yet for the sake of David your father
I will not do it in your days,
but I will tear it out of the hand of your son.
However I will not tear away all the kingdom;
but I will give one tribe to your son,
for the sake of David my servant
and for the sake of Jerusalem which I have chosen.”Mark 8:1-10

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:Mark 8:1-10

R/. O Lord, remember us with the favour
you show to your people.
Mark 8:1-10

Blessed are they who observe what is just,
who at all times do what is right.
O Lord, remember me
with the favour you show to your people.
Visit me with your saving power.Mark 8:1-10

Instead they mingled with the nations,
and learned to act as they did.
They also served their idols,
and these became a snare to entrap them.Mark 8:1-10

They even offered their sons
and their daughters in sacrifice to demons.
Then God’s anger blazed against his people;
he was filled with horror at his heritage.Mark 8:1-10

R/. O Lord, remember us with the favour
you show to your people.Mark 8:1-10

Mark 8:1-10
Gospel: Mark 7:24-30Mark 8:1-10

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark.Mark 8:1-10

At that time:
Jesus arose and went away to the region of Tyre and Sidon.
And he entered a house, and would not have anyone know it,
yet he could not be hidden.
But immediately a woman,
whose little daughter was possessed by an unclean spirit,
heard of him, and came and fell down at his feet.
Now the woman was a Greek, a Syrophoenician by birth.
And she begged him to cast the demon out of her daughter.
And he said to her,
“Let the children first be fed,
for it is not right to take the children’s bread
and throw it to the dogs.”Mark 8:1-10

But she answered him, “Yes, Lord;
yet even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.”

And he said to her, “For this saying, you may go your way;
the demon has left your daughter.”
And she went home
and found the child lying in bed, and the demon gone.Mark 8:1-10
