Reading 2: JAS 5:1-6

The second reading from the Letter from James.

Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming on you.

Your riches are corrupted and your garments are moth-eaten.

Your gold and your silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be for a testimony against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have laid up your treasure in the last days.

Behold, the wages of the laborers whom owed your fields, which you have kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of those who reaped have entered into the ears of the Lord of Armies.

You have lived in luxury on the earth, and taken your pleasure. You have nourished your hearts as in a day of slaughter.

You have condemned and you have murdered the righteous one. He doesn’t resist you.

Gospel of the Day: MK 9:38-43, 45, 47-48

From the gospel scripture according to Mark.

John said to him, “Teacher, we saw someone who doesn’t follow us casting out demons in your name; and we forbade him, because he doesn’t follow us.”

But Jesus said, “Don’t forbid him, for there is no one who will do a mighty work in my name and be able quickly to speak evil of me.

For whoever is not against us is on our side.

For whoever will give you a cup of water to drink in my name because you are Christ’s, most certainly I tell you, he will in no way lose his reward.”

“Whoever will cause one of these little ones who believe in me to stumble, it would be better for him if he were thrown into the sea with a millstone hung around his neck.

If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having your two hands to go into Gehenna, into the unquenchable fire.”

“If your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life lame, rather than having your two feet to be cast into Gehenna, into the fire that will never be quenched.”

“If your eye causes you to stumble, throw it out. It is better for you to enter into God’s Kingdom with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into the Gehenna of fire, ‘where their worm doesn’t die, and the fire is not quenched.’_”
