  • First Reading: James 1:19-27

    19 You know, my dearest brethren. And let every man be swift to hear, but slow to speak, and slow to anger.
    20 For the anger of man worketh not the justice of God.
    21 Wherefore casting away all uncleanness, and abundance of naughtiness, with meekness receive the ingrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
    22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
    23 For if a man be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he shall be compared to a man beholding his own countenance in a glass.
    24 For he beheld himself, and went his way, and presently forgot what manner of man he was.
    25 But he that hath looked into the perfect law of liberty, and hath continued therein, not becoming a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work; this man shall be blessed in his deed.
    26 And if any man think himself to be religious, not bridling his tongue, but deceiving his own heart, this man' s religion is vain.
    27 Religion clean and undefiled before God and the Father, is this: to visit the fatherless and widows in their tribulation: and to keep one' s self unspotted from this world.

  • Psalm: Psalms 13:2-3a,3bc-4ab,5

    2 The Lord hath looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there be any that understand and seek God.
    3 a They are all gone aside, they are become unprofitable together: there is none that doth good, no not one. Their throat is an open sepulchre: with their tongues they acted deceitfully; the poison of asps is under their lips. Their mouth is full of cursing and bitterness; their feet are swift to shed blood. Destruction and unhappiness in their ways: and the way of peace they have not known: there is no fear of God before their eyes.
    3 bc Shall not all they know that work iniquity, who devour my people as they eat bread?
    4 ab They have not called upon the Lord: there have they trembled for fear, where there was no fear.
    5 For the Lord is in the just generation: you have confounded the counsel of the poor man, but the Lord is his hope.

  • Gospel: Mark 8:22-26

    22 And they came to Bethsaida; and they bring to him a blind man, and they besought him that he would touch him.
    23 And taking the blind man by the hand, he led him out of the town; and spitting upon his eyes, laying his hands on him, he asked him if he saw any thing.
    24 And looking up, he said: I see men as it were trees, walking.
    25 After that again he laid his hands upon his eyes, and he began to see, and was restored, so that he saw all things clearly.
    26 And he sent him into his house, saying: Go into thy house, and if thou enter into the town, tell nobody.
