Daily Gospel Reading for May 25, 2021 – Tuesday in the Eighth Week of Ordinary Time Bible Verse

The 25th of May, 2021 is Tuesday in the Eighth Week of Ordinary Time. The Bible scriptures for the holy mass readings for this day came from the 2021 Liturgical Calendar.

Reading 1: SIR 35:1-12

The first reading from The Wisdom of Jesus the Son of Sirach or Ecclesiasticus.

He who keeps the law multiplies offerings. He who heeds the commandments sacrifices a peace offering.

He who returns a kindness offers fine flour. He who gives alms sacrifices a thank offering.

To depart from wickedness pleases the Lord. To depart from unrighteousness is an atoning sacrifice.

See that you don’t appear in the presence of the Lord empty.

For all these things are done because of the commandment.

The offering of the righteous enriches the altar. The sweet fragrance of it is before the Most High.

The sacrifice of a righteous man is acceptable. It won’t be forgotten.

Glorify the Lord with generosity. Don’t reduce the first fruits of your hands.

In every gift show a cheerful countenance, And dedicate your tithe with gladness.

1Give to the Most High according as he has given. As your hand has found, give generously.

For the Lord repays, and he will repay you sevenfold.

Don’t plan to bribe him with gifts, for he will not receive them. Don’t set your mind on an unrighteous sacrifice, For the Lord is the judge, and with him is no respect of persons.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 50:5-6, 7-8, 14 and 23

Gospel of the Day: MK 10:28-31

From the gospel verse according to Mark.

Peter began to tell him, “Behold, we have left all and have followed you.”

Jesus said, “Most certainly 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 Good News, but he 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.”
