  • St. Mark, Evangelist (Feast) 2020:


    1 Peter 5:5-14

    5Likewise you that are younger be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for "God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble." 6Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that in due time he may exalt you. 7Cast all your anxieties on him, for he cares about you. 8Be sober, be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking some one to devour. 9Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experience of suffering is required of your brotherhood throughout the world. 10And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, establish, and strengthen you. 11To him be the dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 12By Silva'nus, a faithful brother as I regard him, I have written briefly to you, exhorting and declaring that this is the true grace of God;stand fast in it. 13She who is at Babylon, who is likewise chosen, sends you greetings;and so does my son Mark. 14Greet one another with the kiss of love. Peace to all of you that are in Christ.


    Psalms 89:2-3, 6-7, 16-17

    1I will sing of thy steadfast love, O LORD, for ever;with my mouth I will proclaim thy faithfulness to all generations. 2For thy steadfast love was established for ever, thy faithfulness is firm as the heavens. 5Let the heavens praise thy wonders, O LORD, thy faithfulness in the assembly of the holy ones! 6For who in the skies can be compared to the LORD? Who among the heavenly beings is like the LORD, 15Blessed are the people who know the festal shout, who walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance, 16who exult in thy name all the day, and extol thy righteousness.


    Mark 16:15-20

    15And he said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation. 16He who believes and is baptized will be saved;but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons;they will speak in new tongues;18they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them;they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover." 19So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. 20And they went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by the signs that attended it. Amen.


    Easter Time.


    Acts 6:1-7

    As the number of disciples continued to grow,
    the Hellenists complained against the Hebrews
    because their widows
    were being neglected in the daily distribution.
    So the Twelve called together the community of the disciples and said,
    "It is not right for us to neglect the word of God to serve at table.
    Brothers, select from among you seven reputable men,
    filled with the Spirit and wisdom,
    whom we shall appoint to this task,
    whereas we shall devote ourselves to prayer
    and to the ministry of the word."
    The proposal was acceptable to the whole community,
    so they chose Stephen, a man filled with faith and the Holy Spirit,
    also Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas,
    and Nicholas of Antioch, a convert to Judaism.
    They presented these men to the Apostles
    who prayed and laid hands on them.
    The word of God continued to spread,
    and the number of the disciples in Jerusalem increased greatly;
    even a large group of priests were becoming obedient to the faith.


    Ps 33:1-2, 4-5, 18-19

    R. (22) Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you.
    R. Alleluia.
    Exult, you just, in the LORD;
    praise from the upright is fitting.
    Give thanks to the LORD on the harp;
    with the ten-stringed lyre chant his praises.
    R. Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you.
    R. Alleluia.
    Upright is the word of the LORD,
    and all his works are trustworthy.
    He loves justice and right;
    of the kindness of the LORD the earth is full.
    R. Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you.
    R. Alleluia.
    See, the eyes of the LORD are upon those who fear him,
    upon those who hope for his kindness,
    To deliver them from death
    and preserve them in spite of famine.
    R. Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you.
    R. Alleluia.


    Jn 6:16-21

    When it was evening, the disciples of Jesus went down to the sea,
    embarked in a boat, and went across the sea to Capernaum.
    It had already grown dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them.
    The sea was stirred up because a strong wind was blowing.
    When they had rowed about three or four miles,
    they saw Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the boat,
    and they began to be afraid.
    But he said to them, "It is I. Do not be afraid."
    They wanted to take him into the boat,
    but the boat immediately arrived at the shore
    to which they were heading.
