The 5th of January, 2022 is Wednesday after Epiphany. The Holy Bible verses for the mass readings for this day came from the Liturgical Calendar of the Year 2022.

Reading 1: 1 JN 4:11-18

The first reading from the Letter of John.

Beloved, if God loved us in this way, we also ought to love one another.

No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God remains in us, and his love has been perfected in us.

By this we know that we remain in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit.

We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as the Savior of the world.

Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God remains in him, and he in God.

We know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and he who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him.

In this, love has been made perfect among us, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment, because as he is, even so we are in this world.

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear has punishment. He who fears is not made perfect in love.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 72:1-2, 10, 12-13

Response: Yes, all kings shall fall down before him. All nations shall serve him.

God, give the king your justice; your righteousness to the royal son.

He will judge your people with righteousness, and your poor with justice.

R: Yes, all kings shall fall down before him. All nations shall serve him.

The kings of Tarshish and of the islands will bring tribute. The kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.

R: Yes, all kings shall fall down before him. All nations shall serve him.

For he will deliver the needy when he cries; the poor, who has no helper.

He will have pity on the poor and needy. He will save the souls of the needy.

R: Yes, all kings shall fall down before him. All nations shall serve him.

Gospel of the Day: MK 6:45-52

From the gospel scripture according to Mark.

Immediately he made his disciples get into the boat and go ahead to the other side, to Bethsaida, while he himself sent the multitude away.

After he had taken leave of them, he went up the mountain to pray.

When evening had come, the boat was in the middle of the sea, and he was alone on the land.

Seeing them distressed in rowing, for the wind was contrary to them, about the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea; and he would have passed by them, but they, when they saw him walking on the sea, supposed that it was a ghost, and cried out; for they all saw him and were troubled. But he immediately spoke with them and said to them, “Cheer up! It is I! Don’t be afraid.”

He got into the boat with them; and the wind ceased, and they were very amazed among themselves, and marveled; for they hadn’t understood about the loaves, but their hearts were hardened.
