    Genesis 1:1-19
    1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
    2 The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters.
    3 And God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.
    4 And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness.
    5 God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.
    6 And God said, "Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters."
    7 And God made the firmament and separated the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament. And it was so.
    8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.
    9 And God said, "Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear." And it was so.
    10 God called the dry land Earth, and the waters that were gathered together he called Seas. And God saw that it was good.
    11 And God said, "Let the earth put forth vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, upon the earth." And it was so.
    12 The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
    13 And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.
    14 And God said, "Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to separate the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years,
    15 and let them be lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light upon the earth." And it was so.
    16 And God made the two great lights, the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night; he made the stars also.
    17 And God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light upon the earth,
    18 to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good.
    19 And there was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 104:1-2, 5-6, 10, 12, 24, 35
    1 Bless the LORD, O my soul! O LORD my God, thou art very great! Thou art clothed with honor and majesty,
    2 who coverest thyself with light as with a garment, who hast stretched out the heavens like a tent,
    5 Thou didst set the earth on its foundations, so that it should never be shaken.
    6 Thou didst cover it with the deep as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains.
    10 Thou makest springs gush forth in the valleys; they flow between the hills,
    12 By them the birds of the air have their habitation; they sing among the branches.
    24 O LORD, how manifold are thy works! In wisdom hast thou made them all; the earth is full of thy creatures.
    35 Let sinners be consumed from the earth, and let the wicked be no more! Bless the LORD, O my soul! Praise the LORD!

  • Gospel

    Mark 6:53-56
    53 And when they had crossed over, they came to land at Gennes'aret, and moored to the shore.
    54 And when they got out of the boat, immediately the people recognized him,
    55 and ran about the whole neighborhood and began to bring sick people on their pallets to any place where they heard he was.
    56 And wherever he came, in villages, cities, or country, they laid the sick in the market places, and besought him that they might touch even the fringe of his garment; and as many as touched it were made well.

    Isaiah 66:10-14
    10 "Rejoice with Jerusalem, and be glad for her, all you who love her; rejoice with her in joy, all you who mourn over her;
    11 that you may suck and be satisfied with her consoling breasts; that you may drink deeply with delight from the abundance of her glory."
    12 For thus says the LORD: "Behold, I will extend prosperity to her like a river, and the wealth of the nations like an overflowing stream; and you shall suck, you shall be carried upon her hip, and dandled upon her knees.
    13 As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you; you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.
    14 You shall see, and your heart shall rejoice; your bones shall flourish like the grass; and it shall be known that the hand of the LORD is with his servants, and his indignation is against his enemies.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Judith 13:18-19
    18 And Uzziah said to her, "O daughter, you are blessed by the Most High God above all women on earth; and blessed be the Lord God, who created the heavens and the earth, who has guided you to strike the head of the leader of our enemies.
    19 Your hope will never depart from the hearts of men, as they remember the power of God.

  • Gospel

    John 2:1-11
    1 On the third day there was a marriage at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there;
    2 Jesus also was invited to the marriage, with his disciples.
    3 When the wine failed, the mother of Jesus said to him, "They have no wine."
    4 And Jesus said to her, "O woman, what have you to do with me? My hour has not yet come."
    5 His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you."
    6 Now six stone jars were standing there, for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons.
    7 Jesus said to them, "Fill the jars with water." And they filled them up to the brim.
    8 He said to them, "Now draw some out, and take it to the steward of the feast." So they took it.
    9 When the steward of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the steward of the feast called the bridegroom
    10 and said to him, "Every man serves the good wine first; and when men have drunk freely, then the poor wine; but you have kept the good wine until now."
    11 This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory; and his disciples believed in him.
