Daily Gospel Reading for February 16, 2022 – Wednesday in the Sixth Week of Ordinary Time Bible Verse

The 16th of February, 2022 is Wednesday in the Sixth Week of Ordinary Time. The Holy Bible verses for the mass readings for this day came from the Liturgical Calendar Year 2022.

Reading 1: JAS 1:19-27

The first reading from the Letter from James.

So, then, my beloved brothers, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger; for the anger of man doesn’t produce the righteousness of God.

Therefore, putting away all filthiness and overflowing of wickedness, receive with humility the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.

But be doers of the word, and not only hearers, deluding your own selves.

For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man looking at his natural face in a mirror; for he sees himself, and goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was.

But he who looks into the perfect law of freedom and continues, not being a hearer who forgets but a doer of the work, this man will be blessed in what he does.

If anyone among you thinks himself to be religious while he doesn’t bridle his tongue, but deceives his heart, this man’s religion is worthless.

Pure religion and undefiled before our God and Father is this: to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 15:2-3A, 3BC-4AB, 5

Response: Who shall live on your holy hill?

He who walks blamelessly and does what is right, and speaks truth in his heart; he who doesn’t slander with his tongue.

R: Who shall live on your holy hill?

Nor does evil to his friend, nor casts slurs against his fellow man; in whose eyes a vile man is despised, but who honors those who fear Yahweh.

R: Who shall live on your holy hill?

He who doesn’t lend out his money for usury, nor take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things shall never be shaken.

R: Who shall live on your holy hill?

Gospel of the Day: MK 8:22-26

From the gospel scripture according to Mark.

He came to Bethsaida. They brought a blind man to him and begged him to touch him.

He took hold of the blind man by the hand, and brought him out of the village. When he had spat on his eyes, and laid his hands on him, he asked him if he saw anything.

He looked up, and said, “I see men, but I see them like walking trees.”

Then again he laid his hands on his eyes. He looked intently, and was restored, and saw everyone clearly.

He sent him away to his house, saying, “Don’t enter into the village, nor tell anyone in the village.”
