Jas 1:12-18; Mark 8

Sixth week in Ordinary Time, Year II
Readings on p. 833 and Antiphons on p. 823 of the Daily Missal.

Entrance Antiphon.

Be my protector, O God, a mighty stronghold to save me. For you are my rock, my stronghold! Lead me, guide me, for the sake of your name.


First Reading: James 1:12-18

A reading from the Letter of Saint James.

Blessed is the one who endures trial,
for when he has stood the test
he will receive the crown of life
which God has promised to those who love him.
Let no one say when he is tempted,
“I am tempted by God”;
for God cannot be tempted with evil
and he himself tempts no one;
but each person is tempted
when he is lured and enticed by his own desire.
Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin,
and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.

Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers and sisters.
Every good endowment and every perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of lights
with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.
Of his own will, he brought us forth by the word of truth
that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

The Word of the Lord.





Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 94:12-13a.14-15.18-19 (R. 12a)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. Blessed the man whom you discipline, O Lord.

Blessed the man whom you discipline, O Lord,
whom you train by means of your law;
to whom you give peace in evil days.

The Lord will not abandon his people,
nor forsake those who are his heritage;
for judgment shall again be just,
and all true hearts shall uphold it.

When I think, “I have lost my foothold,”
your mercy, O Lord, holds me up.
When cares increase in my heart,
your consolation calms my soul.

R/. Blessed the man whom you discipline, O Lord.

Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, Alleluia.
If a man loves me, he will keep my word, says the Lord; and my Father will love him, and we will come to him.



Gospel: Mark 8:14-21

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark.

At that time:
The disciples had forgotten to bring bread,
and they had only one loaf with them in the boat.
And Jesus cautioned them, saying, “Take heed,
beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod.”

And they discussed it with one another, saying,
“We have no bread.”

And being aware of it, Jesus said to them,
“Why do you discuss the fact that you have no bread?
Do you not yet perceive or understand?
Are your hearts hardened?
Having eyes do you not see,
and having ears do you not hear?
And do you not remember?
When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand,
how many baskets full of broken pieces did you take up?”

They said to him, “Twelve.”

“And the seven for the four thousand,
how many baskets full of broken pieces did you take up?”

And they said to him, “Seven.”

And he said to them, “Do you not yet understand?”

The Gospel of the Lord.


Communion Antiphon.
They ate and had their fill, and what they craved the Lord gave them; they were not disappointed in what they craved.
