    Isaiah 66, 10-14

    10"Rejoice with Jerusalem, and be glad for her, all you who love her;rejoice with her in joy, all you who mourn over her;11that you may suck and be satisfied with her consoling breasts;that you may drink deeply with delight from the abundance of her glory." 12For thus says the LORD: "Behold, I will extend prosperity to her like a river, and the wealth of the nations like an overflowing stream;and you shall suck, you shall be carried upon her hip, and dandled upon her knees. 13As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you;you shall be comforted in Jerusalem. 14You shall see, and your heart shall rejoice;your bones shall flourish like the grass;and it shall be known that the hand of the LORD is with his servants, and his indignation is against his enemies.


    Judith 13:18-19

    18And Uzziah said to her, "O daughter, you are blessed by the Most High God above all women on earth;and blessed be the Lord God, who created the heavens and the earth, who has guided you to strike the head of the leader of our enemies.19Your hope will never depart from the hearts of men, as they remember the power of God.


    John 2:1-11

    1On the third day there was a marriage at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there;2Jesus also was invited to the marriage, with his disciples. 3When the wine failed, the mother of Jesus said to him, "They have no wine." 4And Jesus said to her, "O woman, what have you to do with me? My hour has not yet come." 5His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you." 6Now six stone jars were standing there, for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. 7Jesus said to them, "Fill the jars with water." And they filled them up to the brim. 8He said to them, "Now draw some out, and take it to the steward of the feast." So they took it. 9When the steward of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the steward of the feast called the bridegroom 10and said to him, "Every man serves the good wine first;and when men have drunk freely, then the poor wine;but you have kept the good wine until now." 11This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory;and his disciples believed in him.

    Gn 2:18-25

    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 the 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.

    The man and his wife were both naked, yet they felt no shame.


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

    R. (see 1a) Blessed are those who fear the Lord.
    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. Blessed are those who fear the Lord.
    Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine
    in the recesses of your home;
    Your children like olive plants
    around your table.
    R. Blessed are those who fear the Lord.
    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. Blessed are those who fear the Lord.

    Alleluia Jas 1:21bc

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Humbly welcome the word that has been planted in you
    and is able to save your souls.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.


    Mk 7:24-30

    Jesus went to the district of Tyre.
    He entered a house and wanted no one to know about it,
    but he could not escape notice.
    Soon a woman whose daughter had an unclean spirit heard about him.
    She came and fell at his feet.
    The woman was a Greek, a Syrophoenician by birth,
    and she begged him to drive the demon out of her daughter.
    He said to her, "Let the children be fed first.
    For it is not right to take the food of the children
    and throw it to the dogs."
    She replied and said to him,
    "Lord, even the dogs under the table eat the children's scraps."
    Then he said to her, "For saying this, you may go.
    The demon has gone out of your daughter."
    When the woman went home, she found the child lying in bed
    and the demon gone.
