    Sirach 50:1, 3-4, 6-7

    1The leader of his brethren and the pride of his people was Simon the high priest, son of Onias, who in his life repaired the house, and in his time fortified the temple. 3In his days a cistern for water was quarried out, a reservoir like the sea in circumference. 4He considered how to save his people from ruin, and fortified the city to withstand a seige. 6Like the morning star among the clouds, like the moon when it is full;7like the sun shining upon the temple of the Most High, and like the rainbow gleaming in glorious clouds;


    Psalms 16:1-2, 5, 7-8, 11

    1Preserve me, O God, for in thee I take refuge. 2I say to the LORD, "Thou art my Lord;I have no good apart from thee." 5The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup;thou holdest my lot. 7I bless the LORD who gives me counsel;in the night also my heart instructs me. 8I keep the LORD always before me;because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 11Thou dost show me the path of life;in thy presence there is fulness of joy, in thy right hand are pleasures for evermore.


    Galatians 6:14-18

    14But far be it from me to glory except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. 15For neither circumcision counts for anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation. 16Peace and mercy be upon all who walk by this rule, upon the Israel of God. 17Henceforth let no man trouble me;for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus. 18The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brethren. Amen.


    Matthew 11:25-30

    25At that time Jesus declared, "I thank thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to babes;26yea, Father, for such was thy gracious will. 27All things have been delivered to me by my Father;and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and any one to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. 28Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me;for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."


    Ordinary Time.


    Gn 2:18-24

    The LORD God said: "It is not good for the man to be alone.
    I will make a suitable partner for him."
    So the LORD God formed out of the ground
    various wild animals and various birds of the air,
    and he brought them to the man to see what he would call them;
    whatever the man called each of them would be its name.
    The man gave names to all the cattle,
    all the birds of the air, and all wild animals;
    but none proved to be the suitable partner for the man.
    So the LORD God cast a deep sleep on the man,
    and while he was asleep,
    he took out one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh.
    The LORD God then built up into a woman the rib
    that he had taken from the man.
    When he brought her to the man, the man said:
    "This one, at last, is bone of my bones
    and flesh of my flesh;
    this one shall be called 'woman, '
    for out of 'her man' this one has been taken."
    That is why a man leaves his father and mother
    and clings to his wife,
    and the two of them become one flesh.


    Ps 128:1-2, 3, 4-5, 6

    R. (cf. 5)
    May the Lord bless us all the days of our lives.
    Blessed are you who fear the LORD,
    who walk in his ways!
    For you shall eat the fruit of your handiwork;
    blessed shall you be, and favored.
    R.May the Lord bless us all the days of our lives.
    Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine
    in the recesses of your home;
    your children like olive plants
    around your table.
    R.May the Lord bless us all the days of our lives.
    Behold, thus is the man blessed
    who fears the LORD.
    The LORD bless you from Zion:
    may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem
    all the days of your life.
    R.May the Lord bless us all the days of our lives.
    May you see your children's children.
    Peace be upon Israel!
    R.May the Lord bless us all the days of our lives.


    Heb 2:9-11

    Brothers and sisters:
    He "for a little while" was made "lower than the angels, "
    that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.
    For it was fitting that he,
    for whom and through whom all things exist,
    in bringing many children to glory,
    should make the leader to their salvation perfect through suffering.
    He who consecrates and those who are being consecrated
    all have one origin.
    Therefore, he is not ashamed to call them 'brothers.'


    Mk 10:2-16

    The Pharisees approached Jesus and asked,
    "Is it lawful for a husband to divorce his wife?"
    They were testing him.
    He said to them in reply, "What did Moses command you?"
    They replied,
    "Moses permitted a husband to write a bill of divorce
    and dismiss her."
    But Jesus told them,
    "Because of the hardness of your hearts
    he wrote you this commandment.
    But from the beginning of creation,
    God made them male and female.
    For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother
    and be joined to his wife,
    and the two shall become one flesh.
    So they are no longer two but one flesh.
    Therefore what God has joined together,
    no human being must separate."
    In the house the disciples again questioned Jesus about this.
    He said to them,
    "Whoever divorces his wife and marries another
    commits adultery against her;
    and if she divorces her husband and marries another,
    she commits adultery."
    And people were bringing children to him that he might touch them,
    but the disciples rebuked them.
    When Jesus saw this he became indignant and said to them,
    "Let the children come to me;
    do not prevent them, for the kingdom of God belongs to
    such as these.
    Amen, I say to you,
    whoever does not accept the kingdom of God like a child
    will not enter it."
    Then he embraced them and blessed them,
    placing his hands on them.
