Reading for the Day
2 Timothy 3:10-17

  • 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

Response: O Lord, great peace have they who love your law.

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

Gospel for the Day
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.

No matter where some of the seed may land and the odds against it, the growth of the Reign of God is unstoppable. That\'s the seed, but what of the sower?
