    Genesis 6:5-8; 7:1-5, 10
    5 The LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
    6 And the LORD was sorry that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart.
    7 So the LORD said, "I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the ground, man and beast and creeping things and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them."
    8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD.
    1 Then the LORD said to Noah, "Go into the ark, you and all your household, for I have seen that you are righteous before me in this generation.
    2 Take with you seven pairs of all clean animals, the male and his mate; and a pair of the animals that are not clean, the male and his mate;
    3 and seven pairs of the birds of the air also, male and female, to keep their kind alive upon the face of all the earth.
    4 For in seven days I will send rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living thing that I have made I will blot out from the face of the ground."
    5 And Noah did all that the LORD had commanded him.
    10 And after seven days the waters of the flood came upon the earth.

    Psalms 29:1-4, 3, 9-10
    1 Ascribe to the LORD, O heavenly beings, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.
    2 Ascribe to the LORD the glory of his name; worship the LORD in holy array.
    3 The voice of the LORD is upon the waters; the God of glory thunders, the LORD, upon many waters.
    4 The voice of the LORD is powerful, the voice of the LORD is full of majesty.
    9 The voice of the LORD makes the oaks to whirl, and strips the forests bare; and in his temple all cry, "Glory!"
    10 The LORD sits enthroned over the flood; the LORD sits enthroned as king for ever.

  • Gospel

    Mark 8:14-21
    14 Now they had forgotten to bring bread; and they had only one loaf with them in the boat.
    15 And he cautioned them, saying, "Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod."
    16 And they discussed it with one another, saying, "We have no bread."
    17 And being aware of it, Jesus said to them, "Why do you discuss the fact that you have no bread? Do you not yet perceive or understand? Are your hearts hardened?
    18 Having eyes do you not see, and having ears do you not hear? And do you not remember?
    19 When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many baskets full of broken pieces did you take up?" They said to him, "Twelve."
    20 "And the seven for the four thousand, how many baskets full of broken pieces did you take up?" And they said to him, "Seven."
    21 And he said to them, "Do you not yet understand?"

    Acts 13:46-49
    46 And Paul and Barnabas spoke out boldly, saying, "It was necessary that the word of God should be spoken first to you. Since you thrust it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, behold, we turn to the Gentiles.
    47 For so the Lord has commanded us, saying, `I have set you to be a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the uttermost parts of the earth.'"
    48 And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and glorified the word of God; and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.
    49 And the word of the Lord spread throughout all the region.

  • Responsorial Psalm

  • Gospel

    Luke 10:1-9
    1 After this the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to come.
    2 And he said to them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.
    3 Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves.
    4 Carry no purse, no bag, no sandals; and salute no one on the road.
    5 Whatever house you enter, first say, `Peace be to this house!'
    6 And if a son of peace is there, your peace shall rest upon him; but if not, it shall return to you.
    7 And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for the laborer deserves his wages; do not go from house to house.
    8 Whenever you enter a town and they receive you, eat what is set before you;
    9 heal the sick in it and say to them, `The kingdom of God has come near to you.'
