  • First Reading: Hebrews 10:32-39

    32 But call to mind the former days, wherein, being illuminated, you endured a great fight of afflictions.
    33 And on the one hand indeed, by reproaches and tribulations, were made a gazingstock; and on the other, became companions of them that were used in such sort.
    34 For you both had compassion on them that were in bands, and took with joy the being stripped of your own goods, knowing that you have a better and a lasting substance.
    35 Do not therefore lose your confidence, which hath a great reward.
    36 For patience is necessary for you; that, doing the will of God, you may receive the promise.
    37 For yet a little and a very little while, and he that is to come, will come, and will not delay.
    38 But my just man liveth by faith; but if he withdraw himself, he shall not please my soul.
    39 But we are not the children of withdrawing unto perdition, but of faith to the saving of the soul.

  • Psalm: Psalms 37:3-4, 5-6, 23-24, 39-40

    3 Trust in the Lord, and do good, and dwell in the land, and thou shalt be fed with its riches.
    4 Delight in the Lord, and he will give thee the requests of thy heart.
    5 Commit thy way to the Lord, and trust in him, and he will do it.
    6 And he will bring forth thy justice as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
    23 With the Lord shall the steps of a man be directed, and he shall like well his way.
    24 When he shall fall he shall not be bruised, for the Lord putteth his hand under him.
    39 But the salvation of the just is from the Lord, and he is their protector in the time of trouble.
    40 And the Lord will help them and deliver them: and he will rescue them from the wicked, and save them, because they have hoped in him.

  • Gospel: Mark 4:26-34

    26 And he said: So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the earth,
    27 And should sleep, and rise, night and day, and the seed should spring, and grow up whilst he knoweth not.
    28 For the earth of itself bringeth forth fruit, first the blade, then the ear, afterwards the full corn in the ear.
    29 And when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.
    30 And he said: To what shall we liken the kingdom of God? or to what parable shall we compare it?
    31 It is as a grain of mustard seed: which when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that are in the earth:
    32 And when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches, so that the birds of the air may dwell under the shadow thereof.
    33 And with many such parables, he spoke to them the word, according as they were able to hear.
    34 And without parable he did not speak unto them; but apart, he explained all things to his disciples.
