  • First Reading: Nehemiah 5:1-10

    1 For every high priest taken from among men, is ordained for men in the things that appertain to God, that he may offer up gifts and sacrifices for sins:
    2 Who can have compassion on them that are ignorant and that err: because he himself also is compassed with infirmity.
    3 And therefore he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins.
    4 Neither doth any man take the honour to himself, but he that is called by God, as Aaron was.
    5 So Christ also did not glorify himself, that he might be made a high priest: but he that said unto him: Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.
    6 As he saith also in another place: Thou art a priest for ever, according to the order of Melchisedech.
    7 Who in the days of his flesh, with a strong cry and tears, offering up prayers and supplications to him that was able to save him from death, was heard for his reverence.
    8 And whereas indeed he was the Son of God, he learned obedience by the things which he suffered:
    9 And being consummated, he became, to all that obey him, the cause of eternal salvation.
    10 Called by God a high priest according to the order of Melchisedech.

  • Psalm: Psalms 110:1, 2, 3, 4

    1 The Lord said to my Lord: Sit thou at my right hand: Until I make thy enemies thy footstool.
    2 The Lord will send forth the sceptre of thy power out of Sion: rule thou in the midst of thy enemies.
    3 With thee is the principality in the day of thy strength: in the brightness of the saints: from the womb before the day star I begot thee.
    4 The Lord hath sworn, and he will not repent: Thou art a priest for ever according to the order of Melchisedech.

  • Gospel: Mark 2:18-22

    18 And the disciples of John and the Pharisees used to fast; and they come and say to him: Why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fast; but thy disciples do not fast?
    19 And Jesus saith to them: Can the children of the marriage fast, as long as the bridegroom is with them? As long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.
    20 But the days will come when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them; and then they shall fast in those days.
    21 No man seweth a piece of raw cloth to an old garment: otherwise the new piecing taketh away from the old, and there is made a greater rent.
    22 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: otherwise the wine will burst the bottles, and both the wine will be spilled, and the bottles will be lost. But new wine must be put into new bottles.
