    Song of Solomon 8:6-7

    6Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm;for love is strong as death, jealousy is cruel as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, a most vehement flame. 7Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. If a man offered for love all the wealth of his house, it would be utterly scorned.


    Psalms 148:1-2, 11-14

    1Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD from the heavens, praise him in the heights! 2Praise him, all his angels, praise him, all his host! 11Kings of the earth and all peoples, princes and all rulers of the earth! 12Young men and maidens together, old men and children! 13Let them praise the name of the LORD, for his name alone is exalted;his glory is above earth and heaven. 14He has raised up a horn for his people, praise for all his saints, for the people of Israel who are near to him. Praise the LORD!


    Luke 10:38-42

    38Now as they went on their way, he entered a village;and a woman named Martha received him into her house. 39And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to his teaching. 40But Martha was distracted with much serving;and she went to him and said, "Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me." 41But the Lord answered her, "Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things;42one thing is needful. Mary has chosen the good portion, which shall not be taken away from her."


    Ordinary Time.


    Gn 3:1-8

    Now the serpent was the most cunning of all the animals
    that the LORD God had made.
    The serpent asked the woman,
    “Did God really tell you not to eat
    from any of the trees in the garden?”
    The woman answered the serpent:
    “We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden;
    it is only about the fruit of the tree
    in the middle of the garden that God said,
    ‘You shall not eat it or even touch it, lest you die.’”
    But the serpent said to the woman:
    “You certainly will not die!
    No, God knows well that the moment you eat of it
    your eyes will be opened and you will be like gods
    who know what is good and what is evil.”
    The woman saw that the tree was good for food,
    pleasing to the eyes, and desirable for gaining wisdom.
    So she took some of its fruit and ate it;
    and she also gave some to her husband, who was with her,
    and he ate it.
    Then the eyes of both of them were opened,
    and they realized that they were naked;
    so they sewed fig leaves together
    and made loincloths for themselves.

    When they heard the sound of the LORD God moving about in the garden
    at the breezy time of the day,
    the man and his wife hid themselves from the LORD God
    among the trees of the garden.


    Ps 32:1-2, 5, 6, 7

    R. (1a) Blessed are those whose sins are forgiven.
    Blessed is he whose fault is taken away,
    whose sin is covered.
    Blessed the man to whom the LORD imputes not guilt,
    in whose spirit there is no guile.
    R. Blessed are those whose sins are forgiven.
    Then I acknowledged my sin to you,
    my guilt I covered not.
    I said, “I confess my faults to the LORD,”
    and you took away the guilt of my sin.
    R. Blessed are those whose sins are forgiven.
    For this shall every faithful man pray to you
    in time of stress.
    Though deep waters overflow,
    they shall not reach him.
    R. Blessed are those whose sins are forgiven.
    You are my shelter;from distress you will preserve me;
    with glad cries of freedom you will ring me round.
    R. Blessed are those whose sins are forgiven.

    Alleluia See Acts 16:14b

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Open our hearts, O Lord,
    to listen to the words of your Son.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.


    Mk 7:31-37

    Jesus left the district of Tyre
    and went by way of Sidon to the Sea of Galilee,
    into the district of the Decapolis.
    And people brought to him a deaf man who had a speech impediment
    and begged him to lay his hand on him.
    He took him off by himself away from the crowd.
    He put his finger into the man's ears
    and, spitting, touched his tongue;
    then he looked up to heaven and groaned, and said to him,
    "Ephphatha!" (that is, "Be opened!")
    And immediately the man's ears were opened,
    his speech impediment was removed,
    and he spoke plainly.
    He ordered them not to tell anyone.
    But the more he ordered them not to,
    the more they proclaimed it.
    They were exceedingly astonished and they said,
    "He has done all things well.
    He makes the deaf hear and the mute speak."
