    Philippians 4:4-9

    4Rejoice in the Lord always;again I will say, Rejoice. 5Let all men know your forbearance. The Lord is at hand. 6Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. 9What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, do;and the God of peace will be with you.


    Psalms 103:1-4, 8-9, 13-14, 17-18

    1Bless the LORD, O my soul;and all that is within me, bless his holy name! 2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, 3who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, 4who redeems your life from the Pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, 8The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. 9He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger for ever. 13As a father pities his children, so the LORD pities those who fear him. 14For he knows our frame;he remembers that we are dust. 17But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon those who fear him, and his righteousness to children's children, 18to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.


    Matthew 18:1-5

    1At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, "Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" 2And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them, 3and said, "Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4Whoever humbles himself like this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5"Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me;


    Ordinary Time.


    Heb 12:1-4

    Brothers and sisters:
    Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses,
    let us rid ourselves of every burden and sin that clings to us
    and persevere in running the race that lies before us
    while keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus,
    the leader and perfecter of faith.
    For the sake of the joy that lay before him
    Jesus endured the cross, despising its shame,
    and has taken his seat at the right of the throne of God.
    Consider how he endured such opposition from sinners,
    in order that you may not grow weary and lose heart.
    In your struggle against sin
    you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood.


    Ps 22:26b-27, 28 and 30, 31-32

    R. (see 27b) They will praise you, Lord, who long for you.
    I will fulfill my vows before those who fear him.
    The lowly shall eat their fill;
    they who seek the LORD shall praise him:
    “May your hearts be ever merry!”
    R. They will praise you, Lord, who long for you.
    All the ends of the earth
    shall remember and turn to the LORD;
    All the families of the nations
    shall bow down before him.
    To him alone shall bow down
    all who sleep in the earth;
    Before him shall bend
    all who go down into the dust.
    R. They will praise you, Lord, who long for you.
    And to him my soul shall live;
    my descendants shall serve him.
    Let the coming generation be told of the LORD
    that they may proclaim to a people yet to be born
    the justice he has shown.
    R. They will praise you, Lord, who long for you.


    Mk 5:21-43

    When Jesus had crossed again in the boat
    to the other side,
    a large crowd gathered around him, and he stayed close to the sea.
    One of the synagogue officials, named Jairus, came forward.
    Seeing him he fell at his feet and pleaded earnestly with him, saying,
    "My daughter is at the point of death.
    Please, come lay your hands on her
    that she may get well and live."
    He went off with him
    and a large crowd followed him.

    There was a woman afflicted with hemorrhages for twelve years.
    She had suffered greatly at the hands of many doctors
    and had spent all that she had.
    Yet she was not helped but only grew worse.
    She had heard about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd
    and touched his cloak.
    She said, "If I but touch his clothes, I shall be cured."
    Immediately her flow of blood dried up.
    She felt in her body that she was healed of her affliction.
    Jesus, aware at once that power had gone out from him,
    turned around in the crowd and asked, "Who has touched my clothes?"
    But his disciples said to him,
    "You see how the crowd is pressing upon you,
    and yet you ask, Who touched me?"
    And he looked around to see who had done it.
    The woman, realizing what had happened to her,
    approached in fear and trembling.
    She fell down before Jesus and told him the whole truth.
    He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has saved you.
    Go in peace and be cured of your affliction."

    While he was still speaking,
    people from the synagogue official's house arrived and said,
    "Your daughter has died;why trouble the teacher any longer?"
    Disregarding the message that was reported,
    Jesus said to the synagogue official,
    "Do not be afraid;just have faith."
    He did not allow anyone to accompany him inside
    except Peter, James, and John, the brother of James.
    When they arrived at the house of the synagogue official,
    he caught sight of a commotion,
    people weeping and wailing loudly.
    So he went in and said to them,
    "Why this commotion and weeping?
    The child is not dead but asleep."
    And they ridiculed him.
    Then he put them all out.
    He took along the child's father and mother
    and those who were with him
    and entered the room where the child was.
    He took the child by the hand and said to her, "Talitha koum,"
    which means, "Little girl, I say to you, arise!"
    The girl, a child of twelve, arose immediately and walked around.
    At that they were utterly astounded.
    He gave strict orders that no one should know this
    and said that she should be given something to eat.
