  • First Reading: James 2:14-24, 26

    14 What shall it profit, my brethren, if a man say he hath faith, but hath not works? Shall faith be able to save him?
    15 And if a brother or sister be naked, and want daily food:
    16 And one of you say to them: Go in peace, be ye warmed and filled; yet give them not those things that are necessary for the body, what shall it profit?
    17 So faith also, if it have not works, is dead in itself.
    18 But some man will say: Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without works; and I will shew thee, by works, my faith.
    19 Thou believest that there is one God. Thou dost well: the devils also believe and tremble.
    20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
    21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, offering up Isaac his son upon the altar?
    22 Seest thou, that faith did co-operate with his works; and by works faith was made perfect?
    23 And the scripture was fulfilled, saying: Abraham believed God, and it was reputed to him to justice, and he was called the friend of God.
    24 Do you see that by works a man is justified; and not by faith only?
    26 For even as the body without the spirit is dead; so also faith without works is dead.

  • Psalm: Psalms 112:1-2, 3-4, 5-6

    1 Praise the Lord, ye children: praise ye the name of the Lord.
    2 Blessed be the name of the Lord, from henceforth now and for ever.
    3 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same, the name of the Lord is worthy of praise.
    4 The Lord is high above all nations; and his glory above the heavens.
    5 Who is as the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high:
    6 And looketh down on the low things in heaven and in earth?

  • Gospel: Mark 8:34,9:1

    34 And calling the multitude together with his disciples, he said to them: If any man will follow me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
    1 And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter and James and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves, and was transfigured before them.
