    Hebrews 8:6-13

    6But as it is, Christ has obtained a ministry which is as much more excellent than the old as the covenant he mediates is better, since it is enacted on better promises.7For if that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no occasion for a second.8For he finds fault with them when he says: "The days will come, says the Lord, when I will establish a new covenant with the house of Israeland with the house of Judah;9not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the handto lead them out of the land of Egypt;for they did not continue in my covenant, and so I paid no heed to them, says the Lord.10This is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord:I will put my laws into their minds, and write them on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.11And they shall not teach every one his fellowor every one his brother, saying, `Know the Lord, 'for all shall know me, from the least of them to the greatest.12For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more."13In speaking of a new covenant he treats the first as obsolete. And what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.


    Psalms 85:8, 10-14

    7Show us thy steadfast love, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation. 9Surely his salvation is at hand for those who fear him, that glory may dwell in our land. 10Steadfast love and faithfulness will meet;righteousness and peace will kiss each other. 11Faithfulness will spring up from the ground, and righteousness will look down from the sky. 12Yea, the LORD will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase. 13Righteousness will go before him, and make his footsteps a way.


    Mark 3:13-19

    13And he went up on the mountain, and called to him those whom he desired;and they came to him. 14And he appointed twelve, to be with him, and to be sent out to preach 15and have authority to cast out demons: 16Simon whom he surnamed Peter;17James the son of Zeb'edee and John the brother of James, whom he surnamed Bo-aner'ges, that is, sons of thunder;18Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Cananaean, 19and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him. Then he went home;


    Ordinary Time.


    Heb 9:15, 24-28

    Christ is mediator of a new covenant:
    since a death has taken place
    for deliverance from transgressions under the first covenant,
    those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance.

    For Christ did not enter into a sanctuary made by hands,
    a copy of the true one, but heaven itself,
    that he might now appear before God on our behalf.
    Not that he might offer himself repeatedly,
    as the high priest enters each year into the sanctuary
    with blood that is not his own;
    if that were so, he would have had to suffer repeatedly
    from the foundation of the world.
    But now once for all he has appeared at the end of the ages
    to take away sin by his sacrifice.
    Just as it is appointed that human beings die once,
    and after this the judgment, so also Christ,
    offered once to take away the sins of many,
    will appear a second time, not to take away sin
    but to bring salvation to those who eagerly await him.


    PS 98:1, 2-3ab, 3cd-4, 5-6

    R. (1a) Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous deeds.
    Sing to the LORD a new song,
    for he has done wondrous deeds;
    His right hand has won victory for him,
    his holy arm.
    R. Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous deeds.
    The LORD has made his salvation known:
    in the sight of the nations he has revealed his justice.
    He has remembered his kindness and his faithfulness
    toward the house of Israel.
    R. Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous deeds.
    All the ends of the earth have seen
    the salvation by our God.
    Sing joyfully to the LORD, all you lands;
    break into song;sing praise.
    R. Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous deeds.
    Sing praise to the LORD with the harp,
    with the harp and melodious song.
    With trumpets and the sound of the horn
    sing joyfully before the King, the LORD.
    R. Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous deeds.


    Mk 3:22-30

    The scribes who had come from Jerusalem said of Jesus,
    "He is possessed by Beelzebul," and
    "By the prince of demons he drives out demons."

    Summoning them, he began to speak to them in parables,
    "How can Satan drive out Satan?
    If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
    And if a house is divided against itself,
    that house will not be able to stand.
    And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided,
    he cannot stand;
    that is the end of him.
    But no one can enter a strong man's house to plunder his property
    unless he first ties up the strong man.
    Then he can plunder his house.
    Amen, I say to you, all sins and all blasphemies
    that people utter will be forgiven them.
    But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit
    will never have forgiveness,
    but is guilty of an everlasting sin."
    For they had said, "He has an unclean spirit."
