Thursday 4th week in Ordinary Time Year I
Antiphons on p.773 and Readings on p.789 of Daily Missal

Entrance Antiphon
Save us, O Lord our God! And gather us from the nations, to give thanks to Your holy name, and make it our glory to praise You.


First Reading: Hebrews 12:18-19.21-24

A reading from the Letter to the Hebrews

Brothers and sisters:
You have not come to what may be touched,
a blazing fire, and darkness, and gloom, and a tempest,
and the sound of a trumpet, and a voice
whose words made the hearers entreat
that no further messages be spoken to them

Indeed, so terrifying was the sight that Moses said,
“I tremble with fear.”
But you have come to Mount Sion
and to the city of the living God,
the heavenly Jerusalem,
and to innumerable angels in festal gathering,
and to the assembly of the first-born who are enrolled in heaven,
and to a judge who is God of all,
and to the spirits of just people made perfect,
and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant,
and to the sprinkled blood that speaks more graciously
than the blood of Abel.

The Word of the Lord



Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 48:2-3ab.3cd-4.9-10-11 (R. see 10)

Let us pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. We have received Your mercy, O Lord,
in the midst of Your temple.

Great is the Lord and highly to be praised
in the city of our God.
His holy mountain rises in beauty,
the joy of all the earth.

Mount Sion, in the heart of the North,
the city of the Mighty King!
God, in the midst of its citadels,
has shown himself its stronghold.

As we have heard, so we have seen
in the city of our God,
in the city of the Lord of hosts,
which God establishes forever.

Your merciful love, O God,
we ponder in your temple.
Your praise, O God, like your name,
reaches the ends of the earth.
Your right hand is filled with saving justice.

R/. We have received Your mercy, O Lord,
in the midst of Your temple.


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 all 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.
