Sirach 35:1-12; Mark 10:28-31

Tuesday, Eighth Week of Ordinary Time – Year I
Readings on p 878 and Antiphons on p 869 of the Daily Missal

Entrance Antiphon
The Lord became my protector. He brought me out to a place of freedom; he saved me because he delighted in me.

First Reading: Sirach 35:1-12

A reading from the Book of Sirach

He who keeps the law makes many offerings;
he who heeds the commandments sacrifices a peace offering.
He who returns a kindness offers fine flour,
and he who gives alms sacrifices a thank offering.
To keep from wickedness is pleasing to the Lord,
and to forsake unrighteousness is atonement.
Do not appear before the Lord empty-handed,
for all these things are to be done because of the commandment.
The offering of a righteous person anoints the altar,
and its pleasing odour rises before the Most High.
The sacrifice of a righteous person is acceptable,
and the memory of it will not be forgotten.
Glorify the Lord generously,
and do not stint the first fruits of your hands.
With every gift show a cheerful face
and dedicate your tithe with gladness.
Give to the Most High as he has given,
and as generously as your hand has found.
For the Lord is the one who repays,
and he will repay you sevenfold.

Do not offer him a bribe, for he will not accept it;
and do not trust to an unrighteous sacrifice;
for the Lord is the judge,
and with him is no partiality.

The Word of the Lord

 

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 50:5-6.7-8.14 & 23 (R. 23bc)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. To one whose way is blameless,
I will show the salvation of God.

“Gather my holy ones to me,
who made covenant with me by sacrifice.”
The heavens proclaim his justice,
for he, God, is the judge.

“Listen, my people, I will speak;
Israel, I will testify against you,
for I am God, your God.
I do not rebuke you for your sacrifices;
your offerings are always before me.

Give your praise as a sacrifice to God,
and fulfil your vows to the Most High.
A sacrifice of praise gives me honour,
and to one whose way is blameless,
I will show the salvation of God.”

R/. To one whose way is blameless,
I will show the salvation of God.

Gospel: Mark 10:28-31

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark

At that time:
Peter began to say to Jesus,
“Behold, we have left everything and followed you.”

Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you,
there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters
or mother or father or children or lands,
for my sake and for the gospel,
who will not receive a hundredfold now in this time,
houses and brothers and sisters
and mothers and children and lands,
with persecutions, and in the age to come eternal life.
But many that are first will be last,
and the last first.”

Communion Antiphon

I will sing to the Lord who has been bountiful with me, sing psalms to the name of the Lord Most High.
