  • First Reading: Sirach 42:15-25

    15 I will now remember the works of the Lord, and I will declare the things I have seen. By the words of the Lord are his works.
    16 The sun giving light hath looked upon all things, and full of the glory of the Lord is his work.
    17 Hath not the Lord made the saints to declare all his wonderful works, which the Lord Almighty hath firmly settled to be established for his glory?
    18 He hath searched out the deep, and the heart of men: and considered their crafty devices.
    19 For the Lord knoweth all knowledge, and hath beheld the signs of the world, he declareth the things that are past, and the things that are to come, and revealeth the traces of hidden things.
    20 No thought escapeth him, and no word can hide itself from him.
    21 He hath beautified the glorious works of his wisdom: and he Is from eternity to eternity, and to him nothing may be added,
    22 Nor can he be diminished, and he hath no need of any counsellor.
    23 O how desirable are all his works, and what we can know is but as a spark!
    24 All these things live, and remain for ever, and for every use all things obey him.
    25 All things are double, one against another, and he hath made nothing defective.

  • Psalm: Psalms 33:2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 8-9

    2 Give praise to the Lord on the harp; sing to him with the psaltery, the instrument of ten strings.
    3 Sing to him a new canticle, sing well unto him with a loud noise.
    4 For the word of the Lord is right, and all his works are done with faithfulness.
    5 He loveth mercy and judgment; the earth is full of the mercy of the Lord.
    6 By the word of the Lord the heavens were established; and all the power of them by the spirit of his mouth:
    7 Gathering together the waters of the sea, as in a vessel; laying up the depths in storehouses.
    8 Let all the earth fear the Lord, and let all the inhabitants of the world be in awe of him.
    9 For he spoke and they were made: he commanded and they were created.

  • Gospel: Mark 10:46-52

    46 And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho, with his disciples, and a very great multitude, Bartimeus the blind man, the son of Timeus, sat by the way side begging.
    47 Who when he had heard, that it was Jesus of Nazareth, began to cry out, and to say: Jesus son of David, have mercy on me.
    48 And many rebuked him, that he might hold his peace; but he cried a great deal the more: Son of David, have mercy on me.
    49 And Jesus, standing still, commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying to him: Be of better comfort: arise, he calleth thee.
    50 Who casting off his garment leaped up, and came to him.
    51 And Jesus answering, said to him: What wilt thou that I should do to thee? And the blind man said to him: Rabboni, that I may see.
    52 And Jesus saith to him: Go thy way, thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he saw, and followed him in the way.
