    Galatians 2:19-20

    19For I through the law died to the law, that I might live to God. 20I have been crucified with Christ;it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me;and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.


    Psalms 126:1-6

    1When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream. 2Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy;then they said among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them." 3The LORD has done great things for us;we are glad. 4Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like the watercourses in the Negeb! 5May those who sow in tears reap with shouts of joy! 6He that goes forth weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, shall come home with shouts of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.


    Matthew 28:16-20

    16Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17And when they saw him they worshiped him;but some doubted. 18And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you;and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age."


    Ordinary Time.


    1 Kgs 8:22-23, 27-30

    Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD
    in the presence of the whole community of Israel,
    and stretching forth his hands toward heaven,
    he said, "LORD, God of Israel,
    there is no God like you in heaven above or on earth below;
    you keep your covenant of mercy with your servants
    who are faithful to you with their whole heart.

    "Can it indeed be that God dwells on earth?
    If the heavens and the highest heavens cannot contain you,
    how much less this temple which I have built!
    Look kindly on the prayer and petition of your servant, O LORD, my God,
    and listen to the cry of supplication which I, your servant,
    utter before you this day.
    May your eyes watch night and day over this temple,
    the place where you have decreed you shall be honored;
    may you heed the prayer which I, your servant, offer in this place.
    Listen to the petitions of your servant and of your people Israel
    which they offer in this place.
    Listen from your heavenly dwelling and grant pardon."


    Ps 84:3, 4, 5 and 10, 11

    R. (2) How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord, mighty God!
    My soul yearns and pines
    for the courts of the LORD.
    My heart and my flesh
    cry out for the living God.
    R. How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord, mighty God!
    Even the sparrow finds a home,
    and the swallow a nest
    in which she puts her young?
    Your altars, O LORD of hosts,
    my king and my God!
    R. How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord, mighty God!
    Blessed they who dwell in your house!
    continually they praise you.
    O God, behold our shield,
    and look upon the face of your anointed.
    R. How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord, mighty God!
    I had rather one day in your courts
    than a thousand elsewhere;
    I had rather lie at the threshold of the house of my God
    than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
    R. How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord, mighty God!


    Mk 7:1-13

    When the Pharisees with some scribes who had come from Jerusalem
    gathered around Jesus,
    they observed that some of his disciples ate their meals
    with unclean, that is, unwashed, hands.
    (For the Pharisees and, in fact, all Jews,
    do not eat without carefully washing their hands,
    keeping the tradition of the elders.
    And on coming from the marketplace
    they do not eat without purifying themselves.
    And there are many other things that they have traditionally observed,
    the purification of cups and jugs and kettles and beds.)
    So the Pharisees and scribes questioned him,
    "Why do your disciples not follow the tradition of the elders
    but instead eat a meal with unclean hands?"
    He responded,
    "Well did Isaiah prophesy about you hypocrites,
    as it is written:

    This people honors me with their lips,
    but their hearts are far from me;
    In vain do they worship me,
    teaching as doctrines human precepts.

    You disregard God's commandment but cling to human tradition."
    He went on to say,
    "How well you have set aside the commandment of God
    in order to uphold your tradition!
    For Moses said,
    Honor your father and your mother,
    and Whoever curses father or mother shall die.
    Yet you say,
    'If someone says to father or mother,
    "Any support you might have had from me is qorban"'
    (meaning, dedicated to God),
    you allow him to do nothing more for his father or mother.
    You nullify the word of God
    in favor of your tradition that you have handed on.
    And you do many such things."
