    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 3:9-24

    The LORD God called to Adam and asked him, “Where are you?”
    He answered, “I heard you in the garden;
    but I was afraid, because I was naked,
    so I hid myself.”
    Then he asked, “Who told you that you were naked?
    You have eaten, then,
    from the tree of which I had forbidden you to eat!”
    The man replied, “The woman whom you put here with me—
    she gave me fruit from the tree, and so I ate it.”
    The LORD God then asked the woman,
    “Why did you do such a thing?”
    The woman answered, “The serpent tricked me into it, so I ate it.”

    Then the LORD God said to the serpent:

    “Because you have done this, you shall be banned
    from all the animals
    and from all the wild creatures;
    On your belly shall you crawl,
    and dirt shall you eat
    all the days of your life.
    I will put enmity between you and the woman,
    and between your offspring and hers;
    He will strike at your head,
    while you strike at his heel.”

    To the woman he said:

    “I will intensify the pangs of your childbearing;
    in pain shall you bring forth children.
    Yet your urge shall be for your husband,
    and he shall be your master.”

    To the man he said: “Because you listened to your wife
    and ate from the tree of which I had forbidden you to eat,

    “Cursed be the ground because of you!
    In toil shall you eat its yield
    all the days of your life.
    Thorns and thistles shall it bring forth to you,
    as you eat of the plants of the field.
    By the sweat of your face
    shall you get bread to eat,
    Until you return to the ground,
    from which you were taken;
    For you are dirt,
    and to dirt you shall return.”

    The man called his wife Eve,
    because she became the mother of all the living.

    For the man and his wife the LORD God made leather garments,
    with which he clothed them.
    Then the LORD God said: “See! The man has become like one of us,
    knowing what is good and what is evil!
    Therefore, he must not be allowed to put out his hand
    to take fruit from the tree of life also,
    and thus eat of it and live forever.”
    The LORD God therefore banished him from the garden of Eden,
    to till the ground from which he had been taken.
    When he expelled the man,
    he settled him east of the garden of Eden;
    and he stationed the cherubim and the fiery revolving sword,
    to guard the way to the tree of life.


    Ps 90:2, 3-4abc, 5-6, 12-13

    R. (1) In every age, O Lord, you have been our refuge.
    Before the mountains were begotten
    and the earth and the world were brought forth,
    from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
    R. In every age, O Lord, you have been our refuge.
    You turn man back to dust,
    saying, “Return, O children of men.”
    For a thousand years in your sight
    are as yesterday, now that it is past,
    or as a watch of the night.
    R. In every age, O Lord, you have been our refuge.
    You make an end of them in their sleep;
    the next morning they are like the changing grass,
    Which at dawn springs up anew,
    but by evening wilts and fades.
    R. In every age, O Lord, you have been our refuge.
    Teach us to number our days aright,
    that we may gain wisdom of heart.
    Return, O LORD! How long?
    Have pity on your servants!
    R. In every age, O Lord, you have been our refuge.

    Alleluia Mt 4:4b

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    One does not live on bread alone,
    but on every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.


    Mk 8:1-10

    In those days when there again was a great crowd without anything to eat,
    Jesus summoned the disciples and said,
    "My heart is moved with pity for the crowd,
    because they have been with me now for three days
    and have nothing to eat.
    If I send them away hungry to their homes,
    they will collapse on the way,
    and some of them have come a great distance."
    His disciples answered him, "Where can anyone get enough bread
    to satisfy them here in this deserted place?"
    Still he asked them, "How many loaves do you have?"
    They replied, "Seven."
    He ordered the crowd to sit down on the ground.
    Then, taking the seven loaves he gave thanks, broke them,
    and gave them to his disciples to distribute,
    and they distributed them to the crowd.
    They also had a few fish.
    He said the blessing over them
    and ordered them distributed also.
    They ate and were satisfied.
    They picked up the fragments left over--seven baskets.
    There were about four thousand people.

    He dismissed the crowd and got into the boat with his disciples
    and came to the region of Dalmanutha.
