    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 7:25—8:6

    Jesus is always able to save those who approach God through him,
    since he lives forever to make intercession for them.

    It was fitting that we should have such a high priest:
    holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners,
    higher than the heavens.
    He has no need, as did the high priests,
    to offer sacrifice day after day,
    first for his own sins and then for those of the people;
    he did that once for all when he offered himself.
    For the law appoints men subject to weakness to be high priests,
    but the word of the oath, which was taken after the law,
    appoints a son, who has been made perfect forever.

    The main point of what has been said is this:
    we have such a high priest,
    who has taken his seat at the right hand of the throne
    of the Majesty in heaven, a minister of the sanctuary
    and of the true tabernacle that the Lord, not man, set up.
    Now every high priest is appointed to offer gifts and sacrifices;
    thus the necessity for this one also to have something to offer.
    If then he were on earth, he would not be a priest,
    since there are those who offer gifts according to the law.
    They worship in a copy and shadow of the heavenly sanctuary,
    as Moses was warned when he was about to erect the tabernacle.
    For God says, “See that you make everything
    according to the pattern shown you on the mountain.”
    Now he has obtained so much more excellent a ministry
    as he is mediator of a better covenant,
    enacted on better promises.


    ps 40:7-8a, 8b-9, 10, 17

    R. (8a and 9a)  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.
    May all who seek you
    exult and be glad in you,
    And may those who love your salvation
    say ever, “The LORD be glorified.”
    R. Here am I, Lord;I come to do your will.


    Mk 3:7-12

    Jesus withdrew toward the sea with his disciples.
    A large number of people followed from Galilee and from Judea.
    Hearing what he was doing,
    a large number of people came to him also from Jerusalem,
    from Idumea, from beyond the Jordan,
    and from the neighborhood of Tyre and Sidon.
    He told his disciples to have a boat ready for him because of the crowd,
    so that they would not crush him.
    He had cured many and, as a result, those who had diseases
    were pressing upon him to touch him.
    And whenever unclean spirits saw him they would fall down before him
    and shout, "You are the Son of God."
    He warned them sternly not to make him known.
