Hebrews 3:7-14; Mark 1:40-45

Thursday 1st week in Ordinary Time Year I
Readings on p.715 and Antiphons on p.707 of Daily Missal

Entrance Antiphon
Upon a lofty throne, I saw a man seated, whom a host of angels adored, singing in unison: Behold him, the name of whose empire is eternal.

First Reading: Hebrews 3:7-14

A reading from the letter to the Hebrews

Brethren: As the Holy Spirit says,
“Today, when you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion,
on the day of testing in the wilderness,
where your ancestors put me to the test
and saw my works for forty years.
Therefore I was provoked with that generation, and said, ‘They always go astray in their hearts;
they have not known my ways.’
As I swore in my wrath,
‘They shall never enter my rest.’”
Take care, brethren,
lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God.
But exhort one another every day,
as long as it is called “today,”
that none of you may be hardened
by the deceitfulness of sin.
For we share in Christ,
if only we hold our first confidence firm to the end.

The Word of the Lord

 

 

 

Responsorial psalm: Psalm 95: 6-7abc, 7d and 8-9,10-11 (R. 8a)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm beginning and ending with the response:

R/. O that today you would listen to his voice!
“Harden not your hearts.

O come; let us bow and bend low.
Let us kneel before the God who made us,
for he is our God and we
the people who belong to his pasture,
the flock that is led by his hand.

O that today you would listen to his voice!
“Harden not your hearts as at Meribah,
as on that day at Massah in the desert
when your forebears put me to the test;
when they tried me, though they saw my work.

For forty years I wearied of that generation,
and I said, ‘Their hearts are astray;
this people does not know my ways.’
Then I took an oath in my anger,
‘Never shall they enter my rest.’”

R/. O that today you would listen to his voice!
“Harden not your hearts.

 

Please stand for the Gospel

Jesus was preaching the Gospel of the kingdom and healing every infirmity among the people. Alleluia.

 

 

Gospel: Mark 1:40-45

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Mark

At that time:
A leper came to Jesus begging him,
and kneeling said to him,
“If you will, you can make me clean.”
Moved with pity,
he stretched out his hand and touched him,
and said to him, “I will; be clean.”
And immediately the leprosy left him,
and he was made clean.
And he sternly charged him,
and sent him away at once,
and said to him,
“See that you say nothing to anyone;
but go, show yourself to the priest,
and offer for your cleansing what Moses commanded,
for a proof to the people.”
But he went out and began to talk freely about it,
and to spread the news,
so that Jesus could no longer openly enter a town,
but was out in the country;
and people came to him from every quarter.

Communion Antiphon
