Reading 1: IS 50:5-9A

The first reading from the Book of Isaiah.

The Lord Yahweh has opened my ear. I was not rebellious. I have not turned back.

I gave my back to those who beat me, and my cheeks to those who plucked off the hair. I didn’t hide my face from shame and spitting.

For the Lord Yahweh will help me. Therefore I have not been confounded. Therefore I have set my face like a flint, and I know that I won’t be disappointed.

He who justifies me is near. Who will bring charges against me? Let us stand up together. Who is my adversary? Let him come near to me.

Behold, the Lord Yahweh will help me! Who is he who will condemn me?

Responsorial Psalm: PS 116:1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 8-9

Response: I will walk before Yahweh in the land of the living.

I love Yahweh, because he listens to my voice, and my cries for mercy.

Because he has turned his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live.

R: I will walk before Yahweh in the land of the living.

The cords of death surrounded me, the pains of Sheol got a hold of me. I found trouble and sorrow.

Then I called on Yahweh’s name: “Yahweh, I beg you, deliver my soul.”

R: I will walk before Yahweh in the land of the living.

Yahweh is gracious and righteous. Yes, our God is merciful.

Yahweh preserves the simple. I was brought low, and he saved me.

R: I will walk before Yahweh in the land of the living.

For you have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.

I will walk before Yahweh in the land of the living.

R: I will walk before Yahweh in the land of the living.

Reading 2: JAS 2:14-18

The second reading from the Letter from James.

What good is it, my brothers, if a man says he has faith, but has no works? Can faith save him?

And if a brother or sister is naked and in lack of daily food, and one of you tells them, “Go in peace. Be warmed and filled;” yet you didn’t give them the things the body needs, what good is it?

Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead in itself.

Yes, a man will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without works, and I will show you my faith by my works.

Gospel of the Day: MK 8:27-35

From the gospel scripture according to Mark.

Jesus went out, with his disciples, into the villages of Caesarea Philippi. On the way he asked his disciples, “Who do men say that I am?”

They told him, “John the Baptizer, and others say Elijah, but others, one of the prophets.”

He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered, “You are the Christ.”

He commanded them that they should tell no one about him.

He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.

He spoke to them openly. Peter took him and began to rebuke him.

But he, turning around and seeing his disciples, rebuked Peter, and said, “Get behind me, Satan! For you have in mind not the things of God, but the things of men.”

He called the multitude to himself with his disciples and said to them, “Whoever wants to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

For whoever wants to save his life will lose it; and whoever will lose his life for my sake and the sake of the Good News will save it.”
