    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 12:18-19, 21-24

    Brothers and sisters:
    You have not approached that which could be touched
    and a blazing fire and gloomy darkness
    and storm and a trumpet blast
    and a voice speaking words such that those who heard
    begged that no message be further addressed to them.
    Indeed, so fearful was the spectacle that Moses said,
    “I am terrified and trembling.”
    No, you have approached Mount Zion
    and the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem,
    and countless angels in festal gathering,
    and the assembly of the firstborn enrolled in heaven,
    and God the judge of all,
    and the spirits of the just made perfect,
    and Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant,
    and the sprinkled Blood that speaks more eloquently
    than that of Abel.


    Ps 48:2-3ab, 3cd-4, 9, 10-11

    R. (see 10) O God, we ponder your mercy within your temple.
    Great is the LORD and wholly to be praised
    in the city of our God.
    His holy mountain, fairest of heights,
    is the joy of all the earth.
    R. O God, we ponder your mercy within your temple.
    Mount Zion, “the recesses of the North,”
    the city of the great King.
    God is with her castles;
    renowned is he as a stronghold.
    R. O God, we ponder your mercy within your temple.
    As we had heard, so have we seen
    in the city of the LORD of hosts,
    In the city of our God;
    God makes it firm forever.
    R. O God, we ponder your mercy within your temple.
    O God, we ponder your mercy
    within your temple.
    As your name, O God, so also your praise
    reaches to the ends of the earth.
    Of justice your right hand is full.
    R. O God, we ponder your mercy within your temple.

    Alleluia Mk 1:15

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    The Kingdom of God is at hand;
    repent and believe in the Gospel.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.


    mk 6:7-13

    Jesus summoned the Twelve and began to send them out two by two
    and gave them authority over unclean spirits.
    He instructed them to take nothing for the journey but a walking stick
    –no food, no sack, no money in their belts.
    They were, however, to wear sandals but not a second tunic.
    He said to them,
    “Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you leave from there.
    Whatever place does not welcome you or listen to you,
    leave there and shake the dust off your feet
    in testimony against them.”
    So they went off and preached repentance.
    The Twelve drove out many demons,
    and they anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them.
