  • First Reading

    1 John 5:5-13
    5 Who is it that overcomes the world but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
    6 This is he who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ, not with the water only but with the water and the blood.
    7 And the Spirit is the witness, because the Spirit is the truth.
    8 There are three witnesses, the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree.
    9 If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater; for this is the testimony of God that he has borne witness to his Son.
    10 He who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself. He who does not believe God has made him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has borne to his Son.
    11 And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
    12 He who has the Son has life; he who has not the Son of God has not life.
    13 I write this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 147:12-15, 19-20
    12 Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem! Praise your God, O Zion!
    13 For he strengthens the bars of your gates; he blesses your sons within you.
    14 He makes peace in your borders; he fills you with the finest of the wheat.
    15 He sends forth his command to the earth; his word runs swiftly.
    19 He declares his word to Jacob, his statutes and ordinances to Israel.
    20 He has not dealt thus with any other nation; they do not know his ordinances. Praise the LORD!

  • Gospel

    Mark 1:7-11
    7 And he preached, saying, "After me comes he who is mightier than I, the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie.
    8 I have baptized you with water; but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."
    9 In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
    10 And when he came up out of the water, immediately he saw the heavens opened and the Spirit descending upon him like a dove;
    11 and a voice came from heaven, "Thou art my beloved Son; with thee I am well pleased."
