    2 Timothy 3:10-17
    10 Now you have observed my teaching, my conduct, my aim in life, my faith, my patience, my love, my steadfastness,
    11 my persecutions, my sufferings, what befell me at Antioch, at Ico'nium, and at Lystra, what persecutions I endured; yet from them all the Lord rescued me.
    12 Indeed all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,
    13 while evil men and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceivers and deceived.
    14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it
    15 and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings which are able to instruct you for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
    16 All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,
    17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 119:157, 160-161, 165-166, 168
    157 Many are my persecutors and my adversaries, but I do not swerve from thy testimonies.
    160 The sum of thy word is truth; and every one of thy righteous ordinances endures for ever.
    161 Princes persecute me without cause, but my heart stands in awe of thy words.
    165 Great peace have those who love thy law; nothing can make them stumble.
    166 I hope for thy salvation, O LORD, and I do thy commandments.
    168 I keep thy precepts and testimonies, for all my ways are before thee.

  • Gospel

    Mark 12:35-37
    35 And as Jesus taught in the temple, he said, "How can the scribes say that the Christ is the son of David?
    36 David himself, inspired by the Holy Spirit, declared, `The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at my right hand, till I put thy enemies under thy feet.'
    37 David himself calls him Lord; so how is he his son?" And the great throng heard him gladly.

    Acts 26:19-23
    19 "Wherefore, O King Agrippa, I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision,
    20 but declared first to those at Damascus, then at Jerusalem and throughout all the country of Judea, and also to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God and perform deeds worthy of their repentance.
    21 For this reason the Jews seized me in the temple and tried to kill me.
    22 To this day I have had the help that comes from God, and so I stand here testifying both to small and great, saying nothing but what the prophets and Moses said would come to pass:
    23 that the Christ must suffer, and that, by being the first to rise from the dead, he would proclaim light both to the people and to the Gentiles."

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 117:1-2
    1 Praise the LORD, all nations! Extol him, all peoples!
    2 For great is his steadfast love toward us; and the faithfulness of the LORD endures for ever. Praise the LORD!

  • Gospel

    John 10:11-16
    11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
    12 He who is a hireling and not a shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf snatches them and scatters them.
    13 He flees because he is a hireling and cares nothing for the sheep.
    14 I am the good shepherd; I know my own and my own know me,
    15 as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep.
    16 And I have other sheep, that are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will heed my voice. So there shall be one flock, one shepherd.
