Heb 2:5-12; Mark 1

Tuesday 1st week in Ordinary Time Year I
Readings on p.710 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 2:5-12

A reading from the letter to the Hebrews

It was not to angels that God subjected the world to come,
of which we are speaking.
It has been testified somewhere,
“What is mankind that you are mindful of him,
or the son of man, that you care for him?
You made him for a little while lower than the angels, you have crowned him with glory and honour,
putting everything in subjection under his feet.”
Now in putting everything in subjection to him,
he left nothing outside his control.
As it is,
we do not yet see everything in subjection to him.
But we see Jesus,
who for a little while was made lower than the angels, crowned with glory and honour
because of the suffering of death,
so that by the grace of God
he might taste death for everyone.
For it was fitting that he,
for whom and by whom all things exist,
in bringing many sons and daughters to glory,
should make the pioneer of their salvation
perfect through suffering.
For he who sanctifies and those who are sanctified
have all one origin.
That is why he is not ashamed to call them brethren, saying, “I will proclaim your name to my brethren,
in the midst of the congregation I will praise you.”

The Word of the Lord


Responsorial psalm: Psalm 8: 2ab and 5.6-7a.7b-9 (R. cf 7a)

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

R/. You have given your Son power of the works of your hands

O LORD, our Lord, how majestic
is your name through all the earth!
What is man that you should keep him in mind,
the son of man that you care for him?

Yet you have made him little lower than the angels;
with glory and honour you crowned him,
gave him power over the works of your hands:

You put all things under his feet,
all of them, sheep and oxen,
yes, even the cattle of the fields,
birds of the air, and fish of the sea
that make their way through the waters.

R/. You have given your Son power of the works of your hands


Please stand for the Gospel
Alleluia, Alleluia.
Accept the word of God, not as the word of people, but as what it really is, the word of God. Alleluia.



Gospel: Mark 1:21b-28

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Mark

In the city of Capernaum,
Jesus entered the synagogue on the sabbath and taught. And they were astonished at his teaching,
for he taught them as one who had authority,
and not as the scribes.
And immediately there was in their synagogue
a man with an unclean spirit;
and he cried out,
“What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth?
Have you come to destroy us?
I know who you are, the Holy One of God.”
But Jesus rebuked him, saying,
“Be silent, and come out of him!”
And the unclean spirit,
convulsing him and crying with a loud voice,
came out of him.
And they were all amazed,
so that they questioned among themselves, saying,
“What is this? A new teaching!
With authority he commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him.”
And at once his fame spread everywhere
throughout all the surrounding region of Galilee.
