  • First Reading: Tobit 1:3; 2:1a-8

    3 But every day gave all he could get to his brethren his fellow captives, that were of his kindred.

    1 a But after this, when there was a festival of the Lord, and a good dinner was prepared in Tobias's house,
    2 He said to his son: Go, and bring some of our tribe that fear God, to feast with us.
    3 And when he had gone, returning he told him, that one of the children of Israel lay slain in the street. And he forthwith leaped up from his place at the table, and left his dinner, and came fasting to the body:
    4 And taking it up carried it privately to his house, that after the sun was down, he might bury him cautiously.
    5 And when he had hid the body, he ate bread with mourning and fear,
    6 Remembering the word which the Lord spoke by Amos the prophet: Your festival days shall be turned into lamentation and mourning.
    7 So when the sun was down, he went and buried him.
    8 Now all his neighbours blamed him, saying: Once already commandment was given for thee to be slain because of this matter, and thou didst scarce escape the sentence of death, and dost thou again bury the dead?

  • Psalm: Psalms 112:1-2, 3b-4, 5-6

    1 Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord: he shall delight exceedingly in his commandments.
    2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the righteous shall be blessed.
    3 b His justice remaineth for ever and ever.
    4 To the righteous a light is risen up in darkness: he is merciful, and compassionate and just.
    5 Acceptable is the man that sheweth mercy and lendeth: he shall order his words with judgment:
    6 Because he shall not be moved for ever.

  • Gospel: Mark 12:1-12

    1 And he began to speak to them in parables: A certain man planted a vineyard and made a hedge about it, and dug a place for the winefat, and built a tower, and let it to husbandmen; and went into a far country.
    2 And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant to receive of the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard.
    3 Who having laid hands on him, beat him, and sent him away empty.
    4 And again he sent to them another servant; and him they wounded in the head, and used him reproachfully.
    5 And again he sent another, and him they killed: and many others, of whom some they beat, and others they killed.
    6 Therefore having yet one son, most dear to him; he also sent him unto them last of all, saying: They will reverence my son.
    7 But the husbandmen said one to another: This is the heir; come let us kill him; and the inheritance shall be ours.
    8 And laying hold on him, they killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard.
    9 What therefore will the lord of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy those husbandmen; and will give the vineyard to others.
    10 And have you not read this scripture, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is made the head of the corner:
    11 By the Lord has this been done, and it is wonderful in our eyes.
    12 And they sought to lay hands on him, but they feared the people. For they knew that he spoke this parable to them. And leaving him, they went their way.
