    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.


    2 Sm 5:1-7, 10

    All the tribes of Israel came to David in Hebron and said:
    "Here we are, your bone and your flesh.
    In days past, when Saul was our king,
    it was you who led the children of Israel out and brought them back.
    And the LORD said to you, 'You shall shepherd my people Israel
    and shall be commander of Israel.'"
    When all the elders of Israel came to David in Hebron,
    King David made an agreement with them there before the LORD,
    and they anointed him king of Israel.
    David was thirty years old when he became king,
    and he reigned for forty years:
    seven years and six months in Hebron over Judah,
    and thirty-three years in Jerusalem
    over all Israel and Judah.

    Then the king and his men set out for Jerusalem
    against the Jebusites who inhabited the region.
    David was told, "You cannot enter here:
    the blind and the lame will drive you away!"
    which was their way of saying, "David cannot enter here."
    But David did take the stronghold of Zion, which is the City of David.

    David grew steadily more powerful,
    for the LORD of hosts was with him.


    Ps 89:20, 21-22, 25-26

    R. (25a) My faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him.
    Once you spoke in a vision,
    and to your faithful ones you said:
    "On a champion I have placed a crown;
    over the people I have set a youth."
    R. My faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him.
    "I have found David, my servant;
    with my holy oil I have anointed him,
    That my hand may be always with him,
    and that my arm may make him strong."
    R. My faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him.
    "My faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him,
    and through my name shall his horn be exalted.
    I will set his hand upon the sea,
    his right hand upon the rivers."
    R. For they had said, "He has an unclean spirit."


    Mk 3:22-30

    The scribes who had come from Jerusalem said of Jesus,
    "He is possessed by Beelzebul," and
    "By the prince of demons he drives out demons."

    Summoning them, he began to speak to them in parables,
    "How can Satan drive out Satan?
    If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
    And if a house is divided against itself,
    that house will not be able to stand.
    And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided,
    he cannot stand;
    that is the end of him.
    But no one can enter a strong man's house to plunder his property
    unless he first ties up the strong man.
    Then he can plunder his house.
    Amen, I say to you, all sins and all blasphemies
    that people utter will be forgiven them.
    But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit
    will never have forgiveness,
    but is guilty of an everlasting sin."
    For they had said, "He has an unclean spirit."
