First Reading: Genesis 9:1-13

A reading from the Book of Genesis.

God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them,
“Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth.
The fear of you and the dread of you
shall be upon every beast of the earth,
and upon every bird of the air,
upon everything that creeps on the ground
and all the fish of the sea;
into your hand they are delivered.
Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you;
and as I gave you the green plants,
I give you everything.
Only you shall not eat flesh with its life,
that is, its blood.
For your lifeblood I will surely require a reckoning;
of every beast, I will require it and of man;
of every man’s brother I will require the life of man.
Whoever sheds the blood of man,
by man shall his blood be shed;
for God made man in his own image.
And you, be fruitful and multiply,
bring forth abundantly on the earth and multiply in it.”

Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him,
“Behold, I establish my covenant
with you and your descendants after you,
and with every living creature that is with you,
the birds, the cattle,
and every beast of the earth with you,
as many as came out of the ark.
I establish my covenant with you,
that never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of a flood,
and never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth.”
And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant
which I make between me and you
and every living creature that is with you,
for all future generations:
I set my bow in the cloud,
and it shall be a sign of the covenant
between me and the earth.

The Word of the Lord.


Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 102:16-18.19-21.29 & 22-23 (R. 20b)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. The Lord looked down from heaven to the earth.

The nations shall fear the name of the Lord,
and all the earthʼs kings your glory.
When the Lord shall build up Sion,
he will appear in all his glory.
Then he will turn to the prayers of the helpless;
he will not despise their prayers.

Let this be written for ages to come,
that a people yet unborn may praise the Lord;
The Lord looked down from his holy place on high,
looked down from heaven to the earth,
to hear the groans of the prisoners,
and free those condemned to die.

The children of your servants shall dwell untroubled,
and their descendants established before you.
May the name of the Lord be proclaimed in Sion,
and his praise in Jerusalem,
when peoples and kingdoms are gathered as one
to offer their worship to the Lord.

R/. The Lord looked down from heaven to the earth.


Alleluia, Alleluia.
Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life; you have the words of eternal life.


Gospel: Mark 8:27-33

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark.

At that time:
Jesus went on with his disciples,
to the villages of Caesarea Philippi;
and on the way, he asked his disciples,
“Who do men say that I am?”

And they told him, “John the Baptist;
and others say, Elijah;
and others one of the prophets.”

And he asked them,
“But who do you say that I am?”

Peter answered him, “You are the Christ.”

And he charged them to tell no one about him.

And he began to teach them
that the Son of man must suffer many things,
and be rejected by the elders
and the chief priests and the scribes,
and be killed, and after three days rise again.
And he said this plainly.
And Peter took him and began to rebuke him.
But turning and seeing his disciples,
he rebuked Peter, and said,
“Get behind me, Satan!
For you are not on the side of God, but of men.”

The Gospel of the Lord.
