The 7th of February, 2021 is the Fifth Sunday of Ordinary Time. The Holy Bible verses for the mass readings for this day came from the Liturgical Calendar Year 2021.

Reading 1: JB 7:1-4, 6-7

The first reading from the Book of Job.

“Isn’t a man forced to labor on earth? Aren’t his days like the days of a hired hand?

As a servant who earnestly desires the shadow, as a hireling who looks for his wages, so I am made to possess months of misery, wearisome nights are appointed to me.

When I lie down, I say, ‘When will I arise, and the night be gone?’ I toss and turn until the dawning of the day.

My days are swifter than a weaver’s shuttle, and are spent without hope.

Oh remember that my life is a breath. My eye will no more see good.”

Responsorial Psalm: PS 147:1-2, 3-4, 5-6

Response: He heals the broken in heart.

Praise Yah, for it is good to sing praises to our God; for it is pleasant and fitting to praise him.

Yahweh builds up Jerusalem. He gathers together the outcasts of Israel.

R: He heals the broken in heart.

He heals the broken in heart, and binds up their wounds.

He counts the number of the stars. He calls them all by their names.

R: He heals the broken in heart.

Great is our Lord, and mighty in power. His understanding is infinite.

Yahweh upholds the humble. He brings the wicked down to the ground.

R: He heals the broken in heart.

Reading 2: 1 COR 9:16-19, 22-23

The second reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians.

For if I preach the Good News, I have nothing to boast about for necessity is laid on me; but woe is to me if I don’t preach the Good News.

For if I do this of my own will, I have a reward. But if not of my own will, I have a stewardship entrusted to me.

What then is my reward? That when I preach the Good News, I may present the Good News of Christ without charge, so as not to abuse my authority in the Good News.

For though I was free from all, I brought myself under bondage to all, that I might gain the more.

To the weak I became as weak, that I might gain the weak. I have become all things to all men, that I may by all means save some.

Now I do this for the sake of the Good News, that I may be a joint partaker of it.

Gospel of the Day: MK 1:29-39

From the gospel scripture according to Mark.

Immediately, when they had come out of the synagogue, they came into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.

Now Simon’s wife’s mother lay sick with a fever, and immediately they told him about her.

He came and took her by the hand and raised her up. The fever left her immediately, and she served them.

At evening, when the sun had set, they brought to him all who were sick and those who were possessed by demons.

All the city was gathered together at the door.

He healed many who were sick with various diseases and cast out many demons. He didn’t allow the demons to speak, because they knew him.

Early in the morning, while it was still dark, he rose up and went out, and departed into a deserted place, and prayed there.

Simon and those who were with him searched for him.

They found him and told him, “Everyone is looking for you.”

He said to them, “Let’s go elsewhere into the next towns, that I may preach there also, because I came out for this reason.”

He went into their synagogues throughout all Galilee, preaching and casting out demons.
