  • First Reading: Hebrews 10:1-10

    1 For the law having a shadow of the good things to come, not the very image of the things; by the selfsame sacrifices which they offer continually every year, can never make the comers thereunto perfect:
    2 For then they would have ceased to be offered: because the worshippers once cleansed should have no conscience of sin any longer:
    3 But in them there is made a commemoration of sins every year.
    4 For it is impossible that with the blood of oxen and goats sin should be taken away.
    5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith: Sacrifice and oblation thou wouldest not: but a body thou hast fitted to me:
    6 Holocausts for sin did not please thee.
    7 Then said I: Behold I come: in the head of the book it is written of me: that I should do thy will, O God.
    8 In saying before, Sacrifices, and oblations, and holocausts for sin thou wouldest not, neither are they pleasing to thee, which are offered according to the law.
    9 Then said I: Behold, I come to do thy will, O God: he taketh away the first, that he may establish that which followeth.
    10 In the which will, we are sanctified by the oblation of the body of Jesus Christ once.

  • Psalm: Psalms 40:2 and 4ab, 7-8a, 10, 11

    2 With expectation I have waited for the Lord, and he was attentive to me.
    4 ab And he put a new canticle into my mouth, a song to our God.
    7 Sacrifice and oblation thou didst not desire; but thou hast pierced ears for me. Burnt offering and sin offering thou didst not require:
    8 a Then said I, Behold I come.
    10 I have declared thy justice in a great church, lo, I will not restrain my lips: O Lord, thou knowest it.
    11 I have not hid thy justice within my heart: I have declared thy truth and thy salvation. I have not concealed thy mercy and thy truth from a great council.

  • Gospel: Mark 3:31-35

    31 And his mother and his brethren came; and standing without, sent unto him, calling him.
    32 And the multitude sat about him; and they say to him: Behold thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee.
    33 And answering them, he said: Who is my mother and my brethren?
    34 And looking round about on them who sat about him, he saith: Behold my mother and my brethren.
    35 For whosoever shall do the will of God, he is my brother, and my sister, and mother.
