Memorial of Saint Timothy and Saint Titus, bishops, [Reading and Psalm] & Thursday of the Third Week in Ordinary Time (II) [Gospel]

Official Translation

Reading 1 – 2 Timothy 1.1-8

Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus
through the will of God,
according to the promise
of the life which is in Christ Jesus,
to Timothy, my beloved child:
Grace, mercy, and peace,
from God the Father
and Christ Jesus our Lord.

I thank God, whom I serve
as my forefathers did,
with a pure conscience,
when I constantly remember you
in my petitions, night and day,
longing to see you,
remembering your tears,
that I may be filled with joy;
being mindful of
the sincere faith that is in you;
which lived first in your grandmother Lois,
and your mother Eunice,
and, I am persuaded, in you also.

For this reason, I remind you
To enkindle anew the gift of God
which is in you
through the laying on of my hands.
For God did not give us a spirit of fear,
but of power, love, and self-control.
Therefore do not be ashamed
of the martyrdom of our Lord,
nor of me, a prisoner for him;
but take your share of suffering for the Gospel,
measured by the power of God.


Titus 1.1-5

Paul, a slave of God and Apostle of Jesus Christ,
according to the faith of God’s chosen ones,
and the knowledge of the religious truthin hope of eternal life,
which the undeceitful God promised before time began;
but in his own time revealed his word in the message
with which I was entrusted according to the commandment of God our Savior;

to Titus, my true child according to a common faith:
Grace and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Savior.

I left you in Crete for this reason:
that you would set in order the things that were lacking,
and appoint presbyters in every city, as I directed you.

Gospel – Mark 4.21-25

Jesus said to his disciples,
“Is the lamp brought in
In order to put it under a basket
or under a bed?
Is it not put on a stand?
For there is nothing hidden,
except to be revealed;
nor is anything made secret,
but that it should come to light.
If anyone has ears to hear, let them hear.”
He said to them,
“Take heed what you do hear.
For whatever measure you measure,
will be measured out to you,
and more will be given to you.
For whoever has, to them will more be given,
and they who do not have,
even that which they have will be taken away.”
