    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.


    1 sm 3:1-10, 19-20

    During the time young Samuel was minister to the LORD under Eli,
    a revelation of the LORD was uncommon and vision infrequent.
    One day Eli was asleep in his usual place.
    His eyes had lately grown so weak that he could not see.
    The lamp of God was not yet extinguished,
    and Samuel was sleeping in the temple of the LORD
    where the ark of God was.
    The LORD called to Samuel, who answered, “Here I am.”

    Samuel ran to Eli and said, “Here I am. You called me.”
    “I did not call you,” Eli said. “Go back to sleep.”
    So he went back to sleep.
    Again the LORD called Samuel, who rose and went to Eli.
    “Here I am,” he said. “You called me.”
    But Eli answered, “I did not call you, my son. Go back to sleep.”
    At that time Samuel was not familiar with the LORD,
    because the LORD had not revealed anything to him as yet.
    The LORD called Samuel again, for the third time.
    Getting up and going to Eli, he said, “Here I am.
    You called me.”
    Then Eli understood that the LORD was calling the youth.
    So Eli said to Samuel, “Go to sleep, and if you are called, reply,
    ‘Speak, LORD, for your servant is listening.’”
    When Samuel went to sleep in his place,
    the LORD came and revealed his presence,
    calling out as before, “Samuel, Samuel!”
    Samuel answered, “Speak, for your servant is listening.”

    Samuel grew up, and the LORD was with him,
    not permitting any word of his to be without effect.
    Thus all Israel from Dan to Beersheba
    came to know that Samuel was an accredited prophet of the LORD.


    ps 40:2 and 5, 7-8a, 8b-9, 10

    R. (8a and 9a) Here am I, Lord;I come to do your will.
    I have waited, waited for the LORD,
    and he stooped toward me and heard my cry.
    Blessed the man who makes the LORD his trust;
    who turns not to idolatry
    or to those who stray after falsehood.
    R. Here am I, Lord;I come to do your will.
    Sacrifice or oblation you wished not,
    but ears open to obedience you gave me.
    Burnt offerings or sin-offerings you sought not;
    then said I, “Behold I come.”
    R. Here am I, Lord;I come to do your will.
    “In the written scroll it is prescribed for me.
    To do your will, O my God, is my delight,
    and your law is within my heart!”
    R. Here am I, Lord;I come to do your will.
    I announced your justice in the vast assembly;
    I did not restrain my lips, as you, O LORD, know.
    R. Here am I, Lord;I come to do your will.


    mk 1:29-39

    On leaving the synagogue
    Jesus entered the house of Simon and Andrew with James and John.
    Simon’s mother-in-law lay sick with a fever.
    They immediately told him about her.
    He approached, grasped her hand, and helped her up.
    Then the fever left her and she waited on them.

    When it was evening, after sunset,
    they brought to him all who were ill or possessed by demons.
    The whole town was gathered at the door.
    He cured many who were sick with various diseases,
    and he drove out many demons,
    not permitting them to speak because they knew him.

    Rising very early before dawn,
    he left and went off to a deserted place, where he prayed.
    Simon and those who were with him pursued him
    and on finding him said, “Everyone is looking for you.”
    He told them, “Let us go on to the nearby villages
    that I may preach there also.
    For this purpose have I come.”
    So he went into their synagogues, preaching and driving out demons
    throughout the whole of Galilee.
