    Acts 25:13-21

    13Now when some days had passed, Agrippa the king and Berni'ce arrived at Caesare'a to welcome Festus. 14And as they stayed there many days, Festus laid Paul's case before the king, saying, "There is a man left prisoner by Felix;15and when I was at Jerusalem, the chief priests and the elders of the Jews gave information about him, asking for sentence against him. 16I answered them that it was not the custom of the Romans to give up any one before the accused met the accusers face to face, and had opportunity to make his defense concerning the charge laid against him. 17When therefore they came together here, I made no delay, but on the next day took my seat on the tribunal and ordered the man to be brought in. 18When the accusers stood up, they brought no charge in his case of such evils as I supposed;19but they had certain points of dispute with him about their own superstition and about one Jesus, who was dead, but whom Paul asserted to be alive. 20Being at a loss how to investigate these questions, I asked whether he wished to go to Jerusalem and be tried there regarding them. 21But when Paul had appealed to be kept in custody for the decision of the emperor, I commanded him to be held until I could send him to Caesar."


    Psalms 103:1-2, 11-12, 19-20

    1Bless the LORD, O my soul;and all that is within me, bless his holy name! 2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, 11For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;12as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us. 19The LORD has established his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules over all. 20Bless the LORD, O you his angels, you mighty ones who do his word, hearkening to the voice of his word!


    John 21:15-19

    15When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord;you know that I love you." He said to him, "Feed my lambs." 16A second time he said to him, "Simon, son of John, do you love me?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord;you know that I love you." He said to him, "Tend my sheep." 17He said to him the third time, "Simon, son of John, do you love me?" Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, "Do you love me?" And he said to him, "Lord, you know everything;you know that I love you." Jesus said to him, "Feed my sheep. 18Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were young, you girded yourself and walked where you would;but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will gird you and carry you where you do not wish to go." 19(This he said to show by what death he was to glorify God.) And after this he said to him, "Follow me."

    Jas 4:1-10

    Where do the wars and where do the conflicts among you come from?
    Is it not from your passions that make war within your members?
    You covet but do not possess.
    You kill and envy but you cannot obtain;
    you fight and wage war.
    You do not possess because you do not ask.
    You ask but do not receive, because you ask wrongly,
    to spend it on your passions.
    Do you not know that to be a lover of the world means enmity with God?
    Therefore, whoever wants to be a lover of the world
    makes himself an enemy of God.
    Or do you suppose that the Scripture speaks without meaning when it says,
    The spirit that he has made to dwell in us tends toward jealousy?
    But he bestows a greater grace;therefore, it says:
    God resists the proud,
    but gives grace to the humble.

    So submit yourselves to God.
    Resist the Devil, and he will flee from you.
    Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.
    Cleanse your hands, you sinners,
    and purify your hearts, you of two minds.
    Begin to lament, to mourn, to weep.
    Let your laughter be turned into mourning
    and your joy into dejection.
    Humble yourselves before the Lord
    and he will exalt you.


    Ps 55:7-8, 9-10a, 10b-11a, 23

    R. (23a) Throw your cares on the Lord, and he will support you.
    And I say, "Had I but wings like a dove,
    I would fly away and be at rest.
    Far away I would flee;
    I would lodge in the wilderness."
    R. Throw your cares on the Lord, and he will support you.
    "I would wait for him who saves me
    from the violent storm and the tempest."
    Engulf them, O Lord;divide their counsels.
    R. Throw your cares on the Lord, and he will support you.
    In the city I see violence and strife,
    day and night they prowl about upon its walls.
    R. Throw your cares on the Lord, and he will support you.
    Cast your care upon the LORD,
    and he will support you;
    never will he permit the just man to be disturbed.
    R. Throw your cares on the Lord, and he will support you.


    Mk 9:30-37

    Jesus and his disciples left from there and began a journey through Galilee,
    but he did not wish anyone to know about it.
    He was teaching his disciples and telling them,
    "The Son of Man is to be handed over to men
    and they will kill him,
    and three days after his death the Son of Man will rise."
    But they did not understand the saying,
    and they were afraid to question him.

    They came to Capernaum and, once inside the house,
    he began to ask them,
    "What were you arguing about on the way?"
    But they remained silent.
    For they had been discussing among themselves on the way
    who was the greatest.
    Then he sat down, called the Twelve, and said to them,
    "If anyone wishes to be first,
    he shall be the last of all and the servant of all."
    Taking a child, he placed it in their midst,
    and putting his arms around it, he said to them,
    "Whoever receives one child such as this in my name, receives me;
    and whoever receives me,
    receives not me but the One who sent me."
