Tuesday of the Eighth Week in Ordinary Time (II)

Official Translation

Reading 1 – 1 Peter 1.10-16

Concerning this salvation,
the prophets sought and searched diligently,
those who prophesied
of the grace that would come to you,
searching for who or what kind of time
the Spirit of Christ in them pointed to,
when it predicted the sufferings of Christ,
and the glories that would follow them.

To them it was revealed,
that not to themselves, but to you,
they ministered these things,
which now have been announced to you
through those who preached the Gospel to you
by the Holy Spirit sent out from heaven;
which things angels desire to look into.

Therefore gird the loins of your mind,
be sober and set your hope
fully on the grace that will be brought to you
at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
As children of obedience,
not conforming yourselves
to your former lusts as in your ignorance,
but as he who called you is holy,
you yourselves also be holy in all of your behavior;
for it is written, “Be holy; for I am holy.”

Responsorial – Psalm 98.1, 2-3ab, 3cd-4 Resp. 2a

R. The Lord has made known his salvation.

Sing to the Lord a new song,
because he has done wonderful things.
His right hand has saved,
and his holy arm.

R. The Lord has made known his salvation.

The Lord has made known his salvation.
he has revealed his justice in the sight of the nations.
He has remembered his mercy and his fidelity
toward the house of Israel.

R. The Lord has made known his salvation.

All the ends of the earth have seen
the salvation by our God.
Sing joyfully to God, all the earth;
make melody, rejoice and sing.

R. The Lord has made known his salvation.

Gospel – Mark 10.28-31

Peter began to tell Jesus “Behold, we have left all, and have followed you.”
Jesus said, “Amen I tell you, there is no one
who has left house, or brothers, or sisters,
or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or land,
for my sake and for the sake of the Gospel,
but they will receive one hundred times more now in this time:
houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and land, with persecutions;
and in the age to come eternal life.
But many who are first will be last; and the last first.”
