Thursday of the Third Week in Ordinary Time (I)

Official Translation

Reading 1 – Hebrews 10.19-25

Brothers and sisters:
Having, therefore, boldness to enter into the holy place through the blood of Jesus,
by the way which he dedicated for us, a new and living way,
through the veil, that is to say, his flesh,
and having a great priest over the house of God,
let us draw near with a true heart in fullness of faith,
having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience,
and having our body washed with pure water,
let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.
Let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good works,
not forsaking our own assembly, as is the custom of some,
but encouraging one another,
and so much the more, as you see the day approaching.

Responsorial – Psalm 24.1-2, 3-4ab, 5-6 Resp. 6

R. Lord, this is the people that seeks your face.

The Lord’s is the earth and its fullness,
the world and its inhabitants.
For he founded it upon the seas;
and upon the rivers made it firm.

R. Lord, this is the people that seeks your face.

Who shall ascend the mountain of the Lord?
Who shall stand in his holy place?
He who, with innocent hands and a clean of heart,
has not lifted up his soul to useless things.

R. Lord, this is the people that seeks your face.

He shall receive a blessing from the Lord,
and righteousness from God his Savior.
This is the nature of those who seek him,
who seek the face of the God of Jacob.

R. Lord, this is the people that seeks your face.

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.”
