  • First Reading: Sirach 5:1-8

    1 Set not thy heart upon unjust possessions, and say not: I have enough to live on: for it shall be of no service in the time of vengeance and darkness.
    2 Follow not in thy strength the desires of thy heart:
    3 And say not: How mighty am I? and who shall bring me under for my deeds? for God will surely take revenge.
    4 Say not: I have sinned, and what harm hath befallen me? for the most High is a patient rewarder.
    5 Be not without fear about sin forgiven, and add not sin upon sin:
    6 And say not: The mercy of the Lord is great, he will have mercy on the multitude of my sins.
    7 For mercy and wrath quickly come from him, and his wrath looketh upon sinners.
    8 Delay not to be converted to the Lord, and defer it not from day to day.

  • Psalm: Psalms 1:1-2, 3, 4 and 6

    1 Blessed is the man who hath not walked in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stood in the way of sinners, nor sat in the chair of pestilence.
    2 But his will is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he shall meditate day and night.
    3 And he shall be like a tree which is planted near the running waters, which shall bring forth its fruit, in due season. And his leaf shall not fall off: and all whatsoever he shall do shall prosper.
    4 Not so the wicked, not so: but like the dust, which the wind driveth from the face of the earth.
    6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the just: and the way of the wicked shall perish.

  • Gospel: Mark 9:41-49

    41 And whosoever shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me; it were better for him that a millstone were hanged around his neck, and he were cast into the sea.
    42 And if thy hand scandalize thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life, maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into unquenchable fire:
    43 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not extinguished.
    44 And if thy foot scandalize thee, cut it off. It is better for thee to enter lame into life everlasting, than having two feet, to be cast into the hell of unquenchable fire:
    45 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not extinguished.
    46 And if thy eye scandalize thee, pluck it out. It is better for thee with one eye to enter into the kingdom of God, than having two eyes to be cast into the hell of fire:
    47 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not extinguished.
    48 For every one shall be salted with fire: and every victim shall be salted with salt.
    49 Salt is good. But if the salt became unsavoury; wherewith will you season it? Have salt in you, and have peace among you.
