Reading 1: SIR 44:1, 9-13

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

Let us now praise famous men, our ancestors in their generations.

But of others, there is no memory. They perished as though they had not been. They become as though they had not been born, they and their children after them.

But these were men of mercy, whose righteous deeds have not been forgotten.

A good inheritance remains with their offspring. Their children are within the covenant.

Their offspring stand fast, with their children, for their sakes.

Their offspring will remain forever. Their glory won’t be blotted out.

Gospel of the Day: MK 11:11-26

From the gospel scripture according to Mark.

Jesus entered into the temple in Jerusalem. When he had looked around at everything, it being now evening, he went out to Bethany with the twelve.

The next day, when they had come out from Bethany, he was hungry.

Seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came to see if perhaps he might find anything on it. When he came to it, he found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs.

Jesus told it, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again!” and his disciples heard it.

They came to Jerusalem, and Jesus entered into the temple and began to throw out those who sold and those who bought in the temple, and overthrew the money changers’ tables and the seats of those who sold the doves.

He would not allow anyone to carry a container through the temple.

He taught, saying to them, “Isn’t it written, ‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all the nations?’ But you have made it a den of robbers!”

The chief priests and the scribes heard it, and sought how they might destroy him. For they feared him, because all the multitude was astonished at his teaching.

When evening came, he went out of the city.

As they passed by in the morning, they saw the fig tree withered away from the roots.

Peter, remembering, said to him, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree which you cursed has withered away.”

Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God.

For most certainly I tell you, whoever may tell this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and doesn’t doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is happening, he shall have whatever he says.

Therefore I tell you, all things whatever you pray and ask for, believe that you have received them, and you shall have them.

Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone; so that your Father, who is in heaven, may also forgive you your transgressions.

But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your transgressions.”
