Daily Gospel Reading for February 17, 2022 – Thursday in the Sixth Week of Ordinary Time Bible Verse

The 17th of February, 2022 is Thursday in the Sixth Week of Ordinary Time. The Bible scriptures for the holy mass readings for this day came from the Year 2022 of Liturgical Calendar.

Reading 1: JAS 2:1-9

The first reading from the Letter from James.

My brothers, don’t hold the faith of our glorious Lord Jesus Christ with partiality.

For if a man with a gold ring, in fine clothing, comes into your synagogue, and a poor man in filthy clothing also comes in, and you pay special attention to him who wears the fine clothing and say, “Sit here in a good place;” and you tell the poor man, “Stand there,” or “Sit by my footstool” haven’t you shown partiality among yourselves, and become judges with evil thoughts?

Listen, my beloved brothers. Didn’t God choose those who are poor in this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the Kingdom which he promised to those who love him?

But you have dishonored the poor man. Don’t the rich oppress you and personally drag you before the courts?

Don’t they blaspheme the honorable name by which you are called?

However, if you fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well.

But if you show partiality, you commit sin, being convicted by the law as transgressors.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 34:1-2, 3-4, 5-6

Response: This poor man cried, and Yahweh heard him.

I will bless Yahweh at all times. His praise will always be in my mouth.

My soul shall boast in Yahweh. The humble shall hear of it and be glad.

R: This poor man cried, and Yahweh heard him.

Oh magnify Yahweh with me. Let’s exalt his name together.

I sought Yahweh, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears.

R: This poor man cried, and Yahweh heard him.

They looked to him, and were radiant. Their faces shall never be covered with shame.

This poor man cried, and Yahweh heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.

R: This poor man cried, and Yahweh heard him.

Gospel of the Day: MK 8:27-33

From the gospel verse according to Mark.

Jesus went out, with his disciples, into the villages of Caesarea Philippi. On the way he asked his disciples, “Who do men say that I am?”

They told him, “John the Baptizer, and others say Elijah, but others, one of the prophets.”

He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered, “You are the Christ.”

He commanded them that they should tell no one about him.

He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.

He spoke to them openly. Peter took him and began to rebuke him.

But he, turning around and seeing his disciples, rebuked Peter, and said, “Get behind me, Satan! For you have in mind not the things of God, but the things of men.”
