  • First Reading: Wisdom 2:12, 17-20

    12 Let us therefore lie in wait for the just, because he is not for our turn, and he is contrary to our doings, and upbraideth us with transgressions of the law, and divulgeth against us the sins of our way of life.
    17 Let us see then if his words be true, and let us prove what shall happen to him, and we shall know what his end shall be.
    18 For if he be the true son of God, he will defend him, and will deliver him from the hands of his enemies.
    19 Let us examine him by outrages and tortures, that we may know his meekness and try his patience.
    20 Let us condemn him to a most shameful death: for there shall be respect had unto him by his words.

  • Psalm: Psalms 54:3-4, 5, 6 and 8

    3 Save me, O God, by thy name, and judge me in thy strength.
    4 O God, hear my prayer: give ear to the words of my mouth.
    5 For strangers have risen up against me; and the mighty have sought after my soul: and they have not set God before their eyes.
    6 For behold God is my helper: and the Lord is the protector of my soul.
    8 I will freely sacrifice to thee, and will give praise, O God, to thy name: because it is good.

  • Second Reading: James 3:16-4:3

    16 For where envying and contention is, there is inconstancy, and every evil work.
    17 But the wisdom, that is from above, first indeed is chaste, then peaceable, modest, easy to be persuaded, consenting to the good, full of mercy and good fruits, without judging, without dissimulation.
    18 And the fruit of justice is sown in peace, to them that make peace.

    1 From whence are wars and contentions among you? Are they not hence, from your concupiscences, which war in your members?
    2 You covet, and have not: you kill, and envy, and can not obtain. You contend and war, and you have not, because you ask not.
    3 You ask, and receive not; because you ask amiss: that you may consume it on your concupiscences.

  • Gospel: Mark 9:30-37

    30 And he taught his disciples, and said to them: The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and after that he is killed, he shall rise again the third day.
    31 But they understood not the word, and they were afraid to ask him.
    32 And they came to Capharnaum. And when they were in the house, he asked them: What did you treat of in the way?
    33 But they held their peace, for in the way they had disputed among themselves, which of them should be the greatest.
    34 And sitting down, he called the twelve, and saith to them: If any man desire to be first, he shall be the last of all, and the minister of all.
    35 And taking a child, he set him in the midst of them. Whom when he had embraced, he saith to them:
    36 Whosoever shall receive one such child as this in my name, receiveth me. And whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.
    37 ohn answered him, saying: Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, who followeth not us, and we forbade him.
