    Hebrews 10:19-25
    19 Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the sanctuary by the blood of Jesus,
    20 by the new and living way which he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh,
    21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God,
    22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.
    23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful;
    24 and let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works,
    25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 24:1-6
    1 The earth is the LORD's and the fulness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein;
    2 for he has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the rivers.
    3 Who shall ascend the hill of the LORD? And who shall stand in his holy place?
    4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully.
    5 He will receive blessing from the LORD, and vindication from the God of his salvation.
    6 Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek the face of the God of Jacob. [Selah]

  • Gospel

    Mark 4:21-25
    21 And he said to them, "Is a lamp brought in to be put under a bushel, or under a bed, and not on a stand?
    22 For there is nothing hid, except to be made manifest; nor is anything secret, except to come to light.
    23 If any man has ears to hear, let him hear."
    24 And he said to them, "Take heed what you hear; the measure you give will be the measure you get, and still more will be given you.
    25 For to him who has will more be given; and from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away."

    Wisdom 7:7-10, 15-16
    7 Therefore I prayed, and understanding was given me; I called upon God, and the spirit of wisdom came to me.
    8 I preferred her to scepters and thrones, and I accounted wealth as nothing in comparison with her.
    9 Neither did I liken to her any priceless gem, because all gold is but a little sand in her sight, and silver will be accounted as clay before her.
    10 I loved her more than health and beauty, and I chose to have her rather than light, because her radiance never ceases.
    15 May God grant that I speak with judgment and have thought worthy of what I have received, for he is the guide even of wisdom and the corrector of the wise.
    16 For both we and our words are in his hand, as are all understanding and skill in crafts.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 119:9-14
    9 How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to thy word.
    10 With my whole heart I seek thee; let me not wander from thy commandments!
    11 I have laid up thy word in my heart, that I might not sin against thee.
    12 Blessed be thou, O LORD; teach me thy statutes!
    13 With my lips I declare all the ordinances of thy mouth.
    14 In the way of thy testimonies I delight as much as in all riches.

  • Gospel

    Matthew 23:8-12
    8 But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brethren.
    9 And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven.
    10 Neither be called masters, for you have one master, the Christ.
    11 He who is greatest among you shall be your servant;
    12 whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.
