  • First Reading: Genesis 9:8-15

    8 Thus also said God to Noe, and to his sons with him,
    9 Behold I will establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you:
    10 And with every living soul that is with you, as well in all birds as in cattle and beasts of the earth, that are come forth out of the ark, and in all the beasts of the earth.
    11 I will establish my covenant with you, and all flesh shall be no more destroyed with the waters of a flood, neither shall there be from henceforth a flood to waste the earth.
    12 And God said: This is the sign of the covenant which I give between me and you, and to every living soul that is with you, for perpetual generations.
    13 I will set my bow in the clouds, and it shall be the sign of a covenant between me, and between the earth.
    14 And when I shall cover the sky with clouds, my bow shall appear in the clouds:
    15 And I will remember my covenant with you, and with every living soul that beareth flesh: and there shall no more be waters of a flood to destroy all flesh.

  • Psalm: Psalms 25:4-5, 6-7, 8-9

    4 I have not sat with the council of vanity: neither will I go in with the doers of unjust things.
    5 I have hated the assembly of the malignant; and with the wicked I will not sit.
    6 I will wash my hands among the innocent; and will compass thy altar, O Lord:
    7 That I may hear the voice of thy praise: and tell of all thy wondrous works.
    8 I have loved, O Lord, the beauty of thy house; and the place where thy glory dwelleth.
    9 Take not away my soul, O God, with the wicked: nor my life with bloody men:

  • Second Reading: 1 Peter 3:18-22

    18 Because Christ also died once for our sins, the just for the unjust: that he might offer us to God, being put to death indeed in the flesh, but enlivened in the spirit,
    19 In which also coming he preached to those spirits that were in prison:
    20 Which had been some time incredulous, when they waited for the patience of God in the days of Noe, when the ark was a building: wherein a few, that is, eight souls, were saved by water.
    21 Whereunto baptism being of the like form, now saveth you also: not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the examination of a good conscience towards God by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
    22 Who is on the right hand of God, swallowing down death, that we might be made heirs of life everlasting: being gone into heaven, the angels and powers and virtues being made subject to him.

  • Gospel: Mark 1:12-15

    12 And immediately the Spirit drove him out into the desert.
    13 And he was in the desert forty days and forty nights, and was tempted by Satan; and he was with beasts, and the angels ministered to him.
    14 And after that John was delivered up, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,
    15 And saying: The time is accomplished, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent, and believe the gospel.
