    Hebrews 12:4-7, 11-15

    4In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.5And have you forgotten the exhortation which addresses you as sons? -- "My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, nor lose courage when you are punished by him.6For the Lord disciplines him whom he loves, and chastises every son whom he receives."7It is for discipline that you have to endure. God is treating you as sons;for what son is there whom his father does not discipline?11For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant;later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.12Therefore lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees,13and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but rather be healed.14Strive for peace with all men, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.15See to it that no one fail to obtain the grace of God;that no "root of bitterness" spring up and cause trouble, and by it the many become defiled;


    Psalms 103:1-2, 13-14, 17-18

    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, 13As a father pities his children, so the LORD pities those who fear him. 14For he knows our frame;he remembers that we are dust. 17But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon those who fear him, and his righteousness to children's children, 18to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.


    Mark 6:1-6

    1He went away from there and came to his own country;and his disciples followed him. 2And on the sabbath he began to teach in the synagogue;and many who heard him were astonished, saying, "Where did this man get all this? What is the wisdom given to him? What mighty works are wrought by his hands! 3Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon, and are not his sisters here with us?" And they took offense at him. 4And Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor, except in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house." 5And he could do no mighty work there, except that he laid his hands upon a few sick people and healed them. 6And he marveled because of their unbelief. And he went about among the villages teaching.


    Ordinary Time.


    Heb 13:15-17, 20-21

    Brothers and sisters:
    Through Jesus, let us continually offer God a sacrifice of praise,
    that is, the fruit of lips that confess his name.
    Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have;
    God is pleased by sacrifices of that kind.

    Obey your leaders and defer to them,
    for they keep watch over you and will have to give an account,
    that they may fulfill their task with joy and not with sorrow,
    for that would be of no advantage to you.

    May the God of peace, who brought up from the dead
    the great shepherd of the sheep
    by the Blood of the eternal covenant,
    furnish you with all that is good, that you may do his will.
    May he carry out in you what is pleasing to him through Jesus Christ,
    to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.


    Ps 23:1-3a, 3b-4, 5, 6

    R. (1) The Lord is my shepherd;there is nothing I shall want.
    The LORD is my shepherd;I shall not want.
    In verdant pastures he gives me repose.
    Beside restful waters he leads me;
    he refreshes my soul.
    R. The Lord is my shepherd;there is nothing I shall want.
    He guides me in right paths
    for his name’s sake.
    Even though I walk in the dark valley
    I fear no evil;for you are at my side
    With your rod and your staff
    that give me courage.
    R. The Lord is my shepherd;there is nothing I shall want.
    You spread the table before me
    in the sight of my foes;
    You anoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.
    R. The Lord is my shepherd;there is nothing I shall want.
    Only goodness and kindness follow me
    all the days of my life;
    And I shall dwell in the house of the LORD
    for years to come.
    R. The Lord is my shepherd;there is nothing I shall want.

    Alleluia Jn 10:27

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord;
    I know them, and they follow me.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.


    Mk 6:30-34

    The Apostles gathered together with Jesus
    and reported all they had done and taught.
    He said to them,
    "Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while."
    People were coming and going in great numbers,
    and they had no opportunity even to eat.
    So they went off in the boat by themselves to a deserted place.
    People saw them leaving and many came to know about it.
    They hastened there on foot from all the towns
    and arrived at the place before them.

    When Jesus disembarked and saw the vast crowd,
    his heart was moved with pity for them,
    for they were like sheep without a shepherd;
    and he began to teach them many things.
