Memorial of Saint Timothy and Saint Titus, bishops, [Reading and Psalm] & Saturday of the Second Week in Ordinary Time (I) [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.

or 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 truth in 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 3.20-21

Jesus went into the house, and the crowd came together again,
so that he was not able to eat their bread.
When his own heard of it, they went out to seize him for they said, “He is out of his mind.”
