Daily Gospel Reading for October 31, 2021 – Thirty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time Bible Verse

The 31st of October, 2021 is the Thirty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time. The Bible scriptures for the holy mass readings for this day came from the Year 2021 of Liturgical Calendar.

Reading 1: DT 6:2-6

The first reading from the Book of Deuteronomy.

That you might fear Yahweh your God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command you-you, your son, and your son’s son, all the days of your life; and that your days may be prolonged.

Hear therefore, Israel, and observe to do it, that it may be well with you, and that you may increase mightily, as Yahweh, the God of your fathers, has promised to you, in a land flowing with milk and honey.

Hear, Israel: Yahweh is our God. Yahweh is one.

You shall love Yahweh your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might.

These words, which I command you today, shall be on your heart.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 18:1-2, 2-3, 46 and 50

Response: I love you, Yahweh, my strength.

I love you, Yahweh, my strength.

Yahweh is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer.

R: I love you, Yahweh, my strength.

My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower.

I call on Yahweh, who is worthy to be praised; and I am saved from my enemies.

R: I love you, Yahweh, my strength.

Yahweh lives! Blessed be my rock. Exalted be the God of my salvation.

He gives great deliverance to his king, and shows loving kindness to his anointed, to David and to his offspring, forever more.

R: I love you, Yahweh, my strength.

Reading 2: HEB 7:23-28

The second reading from The Letter to the Hebrews.

Many, indeed, have been made priests, because they are hindered from continuing by death.

But he, because he lives forever, has his priesthood unchangeable.

Therefore he is also able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, seeing that he lives forever to make intercession for them.

For such a high priest was fitting for us: holy, guiltless, undefiled, separated from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; who doesn’t need, like those high priests, to offer up sacrifices daily, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people. For he did this once for all, when he offered up himself.

For the law appoints men as high priests who have weakness, but the word of the oath, which came after the law, appoints a Son forever who has been perfected.

Gospel of the Day: MK 12:28B-34

From the gospel verse according to Mark.

One of the scribes came and heard them questioning together, and knowing that he had answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the greatest of all?”

Jesus answered, “The greatest is: ‘Hear, Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one.

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment.

The second is like this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”

The scribe said to him, “Truly, teacher, you have said well that he is one, and there is none other but he; and to love him with all the heart, with all the understanding, all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbor as himself, is more important than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.”

When Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from God’s Kingdom.” No one dared ask him any question after that.
