  • St. Mark, Evangelist (Feast) 2023:


    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 7:51-8:1a

    Stephen said to the people, the elders, and the scribes:
    "You stiff-necked people, uncircumcised in heart and ears,
    you always oppose the Holy Spirit;
    you are just like your ancestors.
    Which of the prophets did your ancestors not persecute?
    They put to death those who foretold the coming of the righteous one,
    whose betrayers and murderers you have now become.
    You received the law as transmitted by angels,
    but you did not observe it."

    When they heard this, they were infuriated,
    and they ground their teeth at him.
    But Stephen, filled with the Holy Spirit,
    looked up intently to heaven and saw the glory of God
    and Jesus standing at the right hand of God,
    and Stephen said, "Behold, I see the heavens opened
    and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God."
    But they cried out in a loud voice,
    covered their ears, and rushed upon him together.
    They threw him out of the city, and began to stone him.
    The witnesses laid down their cloaks
    at the feet of a young man named Saul.
    As they were stoning Stephen, he called out,
    "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit."
    Then he fell to his knees and cried out in a loud voice,
    "Lord, do not hold this sin against them";
    and when he said this, he fell asleep.

    Now Saul was consenting to his execution.


    Ps 31:3cd-4, 6 and 7b and 8a, 17 and 21ab

    R. (6a) Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.
    R. Alleluia.
    Be my rock of refuge,
    a stronghold to give me safety.
    You are my rock and my fortress;
    for your name's sake you will lead and guide me.
    R. Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.
    R. Alleluia.
    Into your hands I commend my spirit;
    you will redeem me, O LORD, O faithful God.
    My trust is in the LORD;
    I will rejoice and be glad of your mercy.
    R. Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.
    R. Alleluia.
    Let your face shine upon your servant;
    save me in your kindness.
    You hide them in the shelter of your presence
    from the plottings of men.
    R. Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.
    R. Alleluia.


    Jn 6:30-35

    The crowd said to Jesus:
    "What sign can you do, that we may see and believe in you?
    What can you do?
    Our ancestors ate manna in the desert, as it is written:

    He gave them bread from heaven to eat."

    So Jesus said to them,
    "Amen, amen, I say to you,
    it was not Moses who gave the bread from heaven;
    my Father gives you the true bread from heaven.
    For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven
    and gives life to the world."

    So they said to Jesus,
    "Sir, give us this bread always."
    Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life;
    whoever comes to me will never hunger,
    and whoever believes in me will never thirst."
