First Reading: 1 Kings 2:1-4.10-12

A reading from the First Book of Kings.

When David’s time to die drew near,
he charged Solomon his son, saying,
“I am about to go the way of all the earth.
Be strong, and show yourself a man,
and keep the charge of the Lord your God,
walking in his ways and keeping his statutes,
his commandments, his ordinances, and his testimonies,
as it is written in the law of Moses,
that you may prosper in all that you do and wherever you turn;
that the Lord may establish his word
which he spoke concerning me, saying,
‘If your sons take heed to their way,
to walk before me in faithfulness
with all their heart and with all their soul,
there shall not fail you a man on the throne of Israel.’

Then David slept with his ancestors
and was buried in the city of David.
And the time that David reigned over Israel was forty years;
he reigned seven years in Hebron
and thirty-three years in Jerusalem.
So Solomon sat upon the throne of David his father,
and his kingdom was firmly established.

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm: 1 Chronicles 29; 10b, 11ab, 11d-12a. 12bed.(R.12b)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. O Lord, you rule over all.

Blessed are you, O Lord,
the God of Israel our father,
for ever and ever.

Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power,
and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty;
for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours.

You are exalted as head above all.
Both riches and honour come from you.

You rule over all.
In your hand are power and might;
and in your hand it is to make great
and to give strength to all.

R/. O Lord, you rule over all.

Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, Alleluia.
The kingdom of God is at hand; repent, and believe in the Gospel.







Gospel: Mark 6:7-13

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark.

At that time:
Jesus called to him the Twelve,
and began to send them out two by two,
and gave them authority over the unclean spirits.
He charged them to take nothing for their journey except a staff;
no bread, no bag, no money in their belts;
but to wear sandals and not put on two tunics.
And he said to them, “Where you enter a house,
stay there until you leave the place.
And if any place will not receive you
and they refuse to hear you,
when you leave, shake off the dust that is on your feet
for a testimony against them.”
So they went out and preached that people should repent.
And they cast out many demons
and anointed with oil many that were sick and healed them.

The Gospel of the Lord.

Communion Antiphon.
Let your face shine on your servant. Save me in your merciful love, O Lord, let me not be put to shame, for I call on you.
