Reading 1: EZ 2:2-5

The first reading from the Book of Ezekiel.

The Spirit entered into me when he spoke to me, and set me on my feet; and I heard him who spoke to me.

He said to me, “Son of man, I send you to the children of Israel, to a nation of rebels who have rebelled against me. They and their fathers have transgressed against me even to this very day.

The children are impudent and stiff-hearted. I am sending you to them, and you shall tell them, ‘This is what the Lord Yahweh says.’

They, whether they will hear, or whether they will refuse-for they are a rebellious house—yet they will know that there has been a prophet among them.”

Responsorial Psalm: PS 123:1-2A, 2BCD, 3-4

Response: So our eyes look to Yahweh, our God, until he has mercy on us.

I lift up my eyes to you, you who sit in the heavens.

Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master.

R: So our eyes look to Yahweh, our God, until he has mercy on us.

As the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to Yahweh, our God, until he has mercy on us.

R: So our eyes look to Yahweh, our God, until he has mercy on us.

Have mercy on us, Yahweh, have mercy on us, for we have endured much contempt.

Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scoffing of those who are at ease, with the contempt of the proud.

R: So our eyes look to Yahweh, our God, until he has mercy on us.

Reading 2: 2 COR 12:7-10

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

By reason of the exceeding greatness of the revelations, that I should not be exalted excessively, a thorn in the flesh was given to me: a messenger of Satan to torment me, that I should not be exalted excessively.

Concerning this thing, I begged the Lord three times that it might depart from me.

He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Most gladly therefore I will rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest on me.

Therefore I take pleasure in weaknesses, in injuries, in necessities, in persecutions, and in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then am I strong.

Gospel of the Day: MK 6:1-6A

From the gospel verse according to Mark.

He went out from there. He came into his own country, and his disciples followed him.

When the Sabbath had come, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many hearing him were astonished, saying, “Where did this man get these things?” and, “What is the wisdom that is given to this man, that such mighty works come about by his hands?

Isn’t this the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James, Joses, Judah, and Simon? Aren’t his sisters here with us?” So they were offended at him.

Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor, except in his own country, and among his own relatives, and in his own house.”

He could do no mighty work there, except that he laid his hands on a few sick people and healed them.

He marveled because of their unbelief.
