    Ephesians 3:8-12

    8To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, 9and to make all men see what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things;10that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places. 11This was according to the eternal purpose which he has realized in Christ Jesus our Lord, 12in whom we have boldness and confidence of access through our faith in him.


    Psalms 37:3-6, 30-31

    3Trust in the LORD, and do good;so you will dwell in the land, and enjoy security. 4Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. 5Commit your way to the LORD;trust in him, and he will act. 6He will bring forth your vindication as the light, and your right as the noonday. 30The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks justice. 31The law of his God is in his heart;his steps do not slip.


    John 15:9-17

    9As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you;abide in my love. 10If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love. 11These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. 12"This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 14You are my friends if you do what I command you. 15No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing;but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. 16You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide;so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. 17This I command you, to love one another.


    Ordinary Time.


    Heb 10:1-10

    Brothers and sisters:
    Since the law has only a shadow of the good things to come,
    and not the very image of them, it can never make perfect
    those who come to worship by the same sacrifices
    that they offer continually each year.
    Otherwise, would not the sacrifices have ceased to be offered,
    since the worshipers, once cleansed, would no longer
    have had any consciousness of sins?
    But in those sacrifices there is only a yearly remembrance of sins,
    for it is impossible that the blood of bulls and goats
    take away sins.
    For this reason, when he came into the world, he said:

    Sacrifice and offering you did not desire,
    but a body you prepared for me;
    in burnt offerings and sin offerings you took no delight.
    Then I said, As is written of me in the scroll,
    Behold, I come to do your will, O God.

    First he says, Sacrifices and offerings,
    burnt offerings and sin offerings,
    you neither desired nor delighted in.

    These are offered according to the law.
    Then he says, Behold, I come to do your will.
    He takes away the first to establish the second.
    By this “will,” we have been consecrated
    through the offering of the Body of Jesus Christ once for all.


    ps 40:2 and 4ab, 7-8a, 10, 11

    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 he put a new song into my mouth,
    a hymn to our God.
    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.
    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.
    Your justice I kept not hid within my heart;
    your faithfulness and your salvation I have spoken of;
    I have made no secret of your kindness and your truth
    in the vast assembly.
    R. Here am I Lord;I come to do your will.


    Mk 3:31-35

    The mother of Jesus and his brothers arrived at the house.
    Standing outside, they sent word to Jesus and called him.
    A crowd seated around him told him,
    "Your mother and your brothers and your sisters
    are outside asking for you."
    But he said to them in reply,
    "Who are my mother and my brothers?"
    And looking around at those seated in the circle he said,
    "Here are my mother and my brothers.
    For whoever does the will of God
    is my brother and sister and mother."
