    Hebrews 1:1-6

    1In many and various ways God spoke of old to our fathers by the prophets;2but in these last days he has spoken to us by a Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.3He reflects the glory of God and bears the very stamp of his nature, upholding the universe by his word of power. When he had made purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,4having become as much superior to angels as the name he has obtained is more excellent than theirs.5For to what angel did God ever say, "Thou art my Son, today I have begotten thee"? Or again, "I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son"?6And again, when he brings the first-born into the world, he says, "Let all God's angels worship him."


    Psalms 97:1-2, 6-7, 9

    1The LORD reigns;let the earth rejoice;let the many coastlands be glad! 2Clouds and thick darkness are round about him;righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne. 6The heavens proclaim his righteousness;and all the peoples behold his glory. 7All worshipers of images are put to shame, who make their boast in worthless idols;all gods bow down before him. 9For thou, O LORD, art most high over all the earth;thou art exalted far above all gods.


    Mark 1:14-20

    14Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, 15and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand;repent, and believe in the gospel." 16And passing along by the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net in the sea;for they were fishermen. 17And Jesus said to them, "Follow me and I will make you become fishers of men." 18And immediately they left their nets and followed him. 19And going on a little farther, he saw James the son of Zeb'edee and John his brother, who were in their boat mending the nets. 20And immediately he called them;and they left their father Zeb'edee in the boat with the hired servants, and followed him.


    Ordinary Time.


    Heb 3:7-14

    The Holy Spirit says:
    Oh, that today you would hear his voice,
    “Harden not your hearts as at the rebellion
    in the day of testing in the desert,
    where your ancestors tested and tried me
    and saw my works for forty years.
    Because of this I was provoked with that generation
    and I said, ‘They have always been of erring heart,
    and they do not know my ways.’
    As I swore in my wrath,
    ‘They shall not enter into my rest.’”

    Take care, brothers and sisters,
    that none of you may have an evil and unfaithful heart,
    so as to forsake the living God.
    Encourage yourselves daily while it is still “today,”
    so that none of you may grow hardened by the deceit of sin.
    We have become partners of Christ
    if only we hold the beginning of the reality firm until the end.


    PS 95:6-7c, 8-9, 10-11

    R.(8) If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
    Come, let us bow down in worship;
    let us kneel before the LORD who made us.
    For he is our God,
    and we are the people he shepherds, the flock he guides.
    R. If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
    Oh, that today you would hear his voice:
    “Harden not your hearts as at Meribah,
    as in the day of Massah in the desert,
    Where your fathers tempted me;
    they tested me though they had seen my works.”
    R. If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
    Forty years I was wearied of that generation;
    I said: “This people’s heart goes astray,
    they do not know my ways.”
    Therefore I swore in my anger:
    “They shall never enter my rest.”
    R. If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.


    Mk 1:40-45

    A leper came to him and kneeling down begged him and said,
    "If you wish, you can make me clean."
    Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand,
    touched the leper, and said to him,
    "I do will it. Be made clean."
    The leprosy left him immediately, and he was made clean.
    Then, warning him sternly, he dismissed him at once.
    Then he said to him, "See that you tell no one anything,
    but go, show yourself to the priest
    and offer for your cleansing what Moses prescribed;
    that will be proof for them."
    The man went away and began to publicize the whole matter.
    He spread the report abroad
    so that it was impossible for Jesus to enter a town openly.
    He remained outside in deserted places,
    and people kept coming to him from everywhere.
