Third Sunday in Ordinary Time (B)

Official Translation

Reading 1 – Jonah 3.1-5, 10

The word of the Lord came to Jonah, saying,
“Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city,
and preach to it the message that I give you.”
So Jonah arose, and went to Nineveh,
according to the Lord’s word.

Now Nineveh was an exceedingly great city,
three days’ journey across.
Jonah began to enter into the city
one day’s journey,
and he cried out, and said,
“In forty days, Nineveh will be overthrown!”
The people of Nineveh believed God;
and they proclaimed a fast,
and put on sackcloth,
from their greatest even to their least.

God saw their works,
that they turned from their evil way.
God relented of the disaster
which he said he would do to them,
and he did not do it.

Responsorial – Psalm 25.4-5, 6-7, 8-9 Resp. 4a

R. Show me your ways, O Lord.

Show me your ways, O Lord.
Teach me your paths.
Guide me in your truth, and teach me,
For you are the God of my salvation,

R. Show me your ways, O Lord.

Lord, remember your tender mercies
and your loving kindness,
they are from of old.
Remember me according to your loving kindness,
for your goodness’ sake, O Lord.

R. Show me your ways, O Lord.

Good and upright is the Lord,
therefore he will instruct sinners in the way.
He will guide the humble in justice.
He will teach the humble his way.

R. Show me your ways, O Lord.

Reading 2 – 1 Corinthians 7.29-31

I say this, brothers and sisters:
the time is short.
From now on, those who have wives
should be as though they had none;
and those who weep,
as though they do not weep;
and those who rejoice,
as though they do not rejoice;
and those who buy,
as though they do not possess;
and those who use the world,
as not using it to the fullest.
For the form of this world passes away.

Gospel – Mark 1.14-20

Now after John was taken into custody,
Jesus came into Galilee,
preaching the Gospel of God,
and saying, “The time is fulfilled,
and the Kingdom of God is at hand!
Repent, and believe in the Gospel.”

Passing along by the sea of Galilee,
he saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon
casting a net into the sea,
for they were fishers.
Jesus said to them, “Come follow me,
and I will make you into fishers of humans.”
Immediately they left their nets,
and followed him.
Going on a little further from there,
he saw James the son of Zebedee,
and John, his brother,
who were also in a boat, mending the nets.
Immediately he called them,
and they left their father, Zebedee,
in the boat with the hired servants,
and went after him.
