    Genesis 3:1-8
    1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any other wild creature that the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God say, `You shall not eat of any tree of the garden'?"
    2 And the woman said to the serpent, "We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden;
    3 but God said, `You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.'"
    4 But the serpent said to the woman, "You will not die.
    5 For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."
    6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she also gave some to her husband, and he ate.
    7 Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves aprons.
    8 And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 32:1-2, 5-7
    1 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
    2 Blessed is the man to whom the LORD imputes no iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.
    5 I acknowledged my sin to thee, and I did not hide my iniquity; I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD"; then thou didst forgive the guilt of my sin. [Selah]
    6 Therefore let every one who is godly offer prayer to thee; at a time of distress, in the rush of great waters, they shall not reach him.
    7 Thou art a hiding place for me, thou preservest me from trouble; thou dost encompass me with deliverance. [Selah]

  • Gospel

    Mark 7:31-37
    31 Then he returned from the region of Tyre, and went through Sidon to the Sea of Galilee, through the region of the Decap'olis.
    32 And they brought to him a man who was deaf and had an impediment in his speech; and they besought him to lay his hand upon him.
    33 And taking him aside from the multitude privately, he put his fingers into his ears, and he spat and touched his tongue;
    34 and looking up to heaven, he sighed, and said to him, "Eph'phatha," that is, "Be opened."
    35 And his ears were opened, his tongue was released, and he spoke plainly.
    36 And he charged them to tell no one; but the more he charged them, the more zealously they proclaimed it.
    37 And they were astonished beyond measure, saying, "He has done all things well; he even makes the deaf hear and the dumb speak."

    Song of Solomon 8:6-7
    6 Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm; for love is strong as death, jealousy is cruel as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, a most vehement flame.
    7 Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. If a man offered for love all the wealth of his house, it would be utterly scorned.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 148:1-2, 11-14
    1 Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD from the heavens, praise him in the heights!
    2 Praise him, all his angels, praise him, all his host!
    11 Kings of the earth and all peoples, princes and all rulers of the earth!
    12 Young men and maidens together, old men and children!
    13 Let them praise the name of the LORD, for his name alone is exalted; his glory is above earth and heaven.
    14 He has raised up a horn for his people, praise for all his saints, for the people of Israel who are near to him. Praise the LORD!

  • Gospel

    Luke 10:38-42
    38 Now as they went on their way, he entered a village; and a woman named Martha received him into her house.
    39 And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to his teaching.
    40 But Martha was distracted with much serving; and she went to him and said, "Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me."
    41 But the Lord answered her, "Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things;
    42 one thing is needful. Mary has chosen the good portion, which shall not be taken away from her."
