    1 Corinthians 1:26-31

    26For consider your call, brethren; not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth; 27but God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise, God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong, 28God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, 29so that no human being might boast in the presence of God. 30He is the source of your life in Christ Jesus, whom God made our wisdom, our righteousness and sanctification and redemption; 31therefore, as it is written, "Let him who boasts, boast of the Lord."


    Psalms 23:1-6

    1The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want; 2he makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters; 3he restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me. 5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies; thou anointest my head with oil, my cup overflows. 6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.


    Matthew 13:44-46

    44"The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up; then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. 45"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, 46who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.


    Ordinary Time.


    Heb 8:6-13

    Brothers and sisters:
    Now our high priest has obtained so much more excellent a ministry
    as he is mediator of a better covenant,
    enacted on better promises.

    For if that first covenant had been faultless,
    no place would have been sought for a second one.
    But he finds fault with them and says:
    Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord,
    when I will conclude a new covenant with the house of
    Israel and the house of Judah.
    It will not be like the covenant I made with their fathers
    the day I took them by the hand to lead
    them forth from the land of Egypt;
    for they did not stand by my covenant
    and I ignored them, says the Lord.
    But this is the covenant I will establish with the house of Israel
    after those days, says the Lord:
    I will put my laws in their minds
    and I will write them upon their hearts.
    I will be their God,
    and they shall be my people.
    And they shall not teach, each one his fellow citizen and kin, saying,
    “Know the Lord,”
    for all shall know me, from least to greatest.
    For I will forgive their evildoing
    and remember their sins no more.

    When he speaks of a “new” covenant,
    he declares the first one obsolete.
    And what has become obsolete
    and has grown old is close to disappearing.


    Ps 85:8 and 10, 11-12, 13-14

    R. (11a) Kindness and truth shall meet.
    Show us, O LORD, your mercy,
    and grant us your salvation.
    Near indeed is his salvation to those who fear him,
    glory dwelling in our land.
    R. Kindness and truth shall meet.
    Kindness and truth shall meet;
    justice and peace shall kiss.
    Truth shall spring out of the earth,
    and justice shall look down from heaven.
    R. Kindness and truth shall meet.
    The LORD himself will give his benefits;
    our land shall yield its increase.
    Justice shall walk before him,
    and salvation, along the way of his steps.
    R. Kindness and truth shall meet.


    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ,
    and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.


    Mk 3:13-19

    Jesus went up the mountain and summoned those whom he wanted
    and they came to him.
    He appointed Twelve, whom he also named Apostles,
    that they might be with him
    and he might send them forth to preach
    and to have authority to drive out demons:
    He appointed the Twelve:
    Simon, whom he named Peter;
    James, son of Zebedee,
    and John the brother of James, whom he named Boanerges,
    that is, sons of thunder;
    Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew,
    Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus;
    Thaddeus, Simon the Cananean,
    and Judas Iscariot who betrayed him.
