James 2:1-9; Mark 8:27-33

The Memorial of The Seven Holy Founders of the Servite Order, Year II.
Readings on p. 839 and Antiphons on p. 1975 of the Daily Missal. (From the Common of Holy Men and Women – Religious).

Entrance Antiphon.

O Lord, it is you who are my portion and cup; you yourself who secure my portion.


First Reading: James 2:1-9

A reading from the Letter of Saint James.

My brothers and sisters, show no partiality
as you hold the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Lord of glory.
For if a man with gold rings and in fine clothing
comes into your assembly,
and a poor man in shabby clothing also comes in,
and you pay attention to the one who wears the fine clothing
and say, “Have a seat here, please,”
while you say to the poor man, “Stand there,”
or, “Sit at my feet,”
have you not made distinctions among yourselves,
and become judges with evil thoughts?
Listen, my beloved brothers and sisters.
Has not God chosen those who are poor in the world
to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom
which he has promised to those who love him?
But you have dishonoured the poor man.
Is it not the rich who oppress you,
is it not they who drag you into court?
Is it not they who blaspheme that honourable name
by which you are called?

If you really fulfil the royal law,
according to the scripture,
“You shall love your neighbour as yourself,”
you do well.
But if you show partiality, you commit sin
and are convicted by the law as transgressors.

The Word of the Lord.


Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 34:2-3.4-5.6-7 (R. see 7a)

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

R/. The lowly one called, and the Lord heard him.

I will bless the Lord at all times;
praise of him is always in my mouth.
In the Lord my soul shall make its boast;
the humble shall hear and be glad.

Glorify the Lord with me;
together let us praise his name.
I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
from all my terrors he set me free.

Look toward him and be radiant;
let your faces not be abashed.
This lowly one called; the Lord heard,
and rescued him from all his distress.

R/. The lowly one called, and the Lord heard him.


Please stand for the Gospel.

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 people 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.



Communion Antiphon.
Amen I say to you: that you who have left all and followed me, will receive a hundredfold and possess eternal life.
