  • First Reading: Hebrews 7:1-3, 15-17

    1 For this Melchisedech was king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him:
    2 To whom also Abraham divided the tithes of all: who first indeed by interpretation, is king of justice: and then also king of Salem, that is, king of peace:
    3 Without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but likened unto the Son of God, continueth a priest for ever.
    15 And it is yet far more evident: if according to the similitude of Melchisedech there ariseth another priest,
    16 Who is made not according to the law of a carnal commandment, but according to the power of an indissoluble life:
    17 For he testifieth: Thou art a priest for ever, 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 3:1-6

    1 And he entered again into the synagogue, and there was a man there who had a withered hand.
    2 And they watched him whether he would heal on the sabbath days; that they might accuse him.
    3 And he said to the man who had the withered hand: Stand up in the midst.
    4 And he saith to them: Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy? But they held their peace.
    5 And looking round about on them with anger, being grieved for the blindness of their hearts, he saith to the man: Stretch forth thy hand. And he stretched it forth: and his hand was restored unto him.
    6 And the Pharisees going out, immediately made a consultation with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.
