  • First Reading: James 1:1-11

    1 James the servant of God, and of our Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.
    2 My brethren, count it all joy, when you shall fall into divers temptations;
    3 Knowing that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
    4 And patience hath a perfect work; that you may be perfect and entire, failing in nothing.
    5 But if any of you want wisdom, let him ask of God, who giveth to all men abundantly, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
    6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea, which is moved and carried about by the wind.
    7 Therefore let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
    8 A double minded man is inconstant in all his ways.
    9 But let the brother of low condition glory in his exaltation:
    10 And the rich, in his being low; because as the flower of the grass shall he pass away.
    11 For the sun rose with a burning heat, and parched the grass, and the flower thereof fell off, and the beauty of the shape thereof perished: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.

  • Psalm: Psalms 119:67, 68, 71, 72, 75, 76

    67 Before I was humbled I offended; therefore have I kept thy word

    68 Thou art good; and in thy goodness teach me thy justifications.

    71 It is good for me that thou hast humbled me, that I may learn thy justifications.

    72 The law of thy mouth is good to me, above thousands of gold and silver.

    75 I know, O Lord, that thy judgments are equity: and in thy truth thou hast humbled me.

    76 O! let thy mercy be for my comfort, according to thy word unto thy servant

  • Gospel: Mark 8:11-13

    11 And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, asking him a sign from heaven, tempting him.
    12 And sighing deeply in spirit, he saith: Why doth this generation seek a sign? Amen, I say to you, a sign shall not be given to this generation.
    13 And leaving them, he went up again into the ship, and passed to the other side of the water.
