The 19th of September, 2021 is the Twenty-Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time. The Bible scriptures for the holy mass readings for this day came from the 2021 Liturgical Calendar.

Reading 1: WIS 2:12, 17-20

The first reading from the Wisdom of Solomon.

“But let’s lie in wait for the righteous man, because he annoys us, is contrary to our works, reproaches us with sins against the law, and charges us with sins against our training.”

“Let’s see if his words are true. Let’s test what will happen at the end of his life.

For if the righteous man is God’s son, he will uphold him, and he will deliver him out of the hand of his adversaries.

Let’s test him with insult and torture, that we may find out how gentle he is, and test his patience.

Let’s condemn him to a shameful death, for he will be protected, according to his words.”

Responsorial Psalm: PS 54:1-2, 3, 4 and 6

Response: The Lord is the one who sustains my soul.

Save me, God, by your name. Vindicate me in your might.

Hear my prayer, God. Listen to the words of my mouth.

R: The Lord is the one who sustains my soul.

For strangers have risen up against me. Violent men have sought after my soul. They haven’t set God before them.

R: The Lord is the one who sustains my soul.

Behold, God is my helper. The Lord is the one who sustains my soul.

With a free will offering, I will sacrifice to you. I will give thanks to your name, Yahweh, for it is good.

R: The Lord is the one who sustains my soul.

Reading 2: JAS 3:16-4:3

The second reading from the Letter from James.

For where jealousy and selfish ambition are, there is confusion and every evil deed.

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceful, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

Where do wars and fightings among you come from? Don’t they come from your pleasures that war in your members?

You lust, and don’t have. You murder and covet, and can’t obtain. You fight and make war. You don’t have, because you don’t ask.

You ask, and don’t receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures.

Gospel of the Day: MK 9:30-37

From the gospel verse according to Mark.

They went out from there and passed through Galilee. He didn’t want anyone to know it,

for he was teaching his disciples, and said to them, “The Son of Man is being handed over to the hands of men, and they will kill him; and when he is killed, on the third day he will rise again.”

But they didn’t understand the saying, and were afraid to ask him.

He came to Capernaum, and when he was in the house he asked them, “What were you arguing among yourselves on the way?”

But they were silent, for they had disputed with one another on the way about who was the greatest.

He sat down and called the twelve; and he said to them, “If any man wants to be first, he shall be last of all, and servant of all.”

He took a little child and set him in the middle of them. Taking him in his arms, he said to them, “Whoever receives one such little child in my name receives me; and whoever receives me, doesn’t receive me, but him who sent me.”
