Daily Gospel Reading for February 21, 2022 – Monday in the Seventh Week of Ordinary Time Bible Verse

The 21st of February, 2022 is Monday in the Seventh 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 3:13-18

The first reading from the Letter from James.

Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by his good conduct that his deeds are done in gentleness of wisdom.

But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, don’t boast and don’t lie against the truth.

This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, sensual, and demonic.

For where jealousy and selfish ambition are, there is confusion and every evil deed.

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceful, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

Gospel of the Day: MK 9:14-29

From the gospel verse according to Mark.

Coming to the disciples, he saw a great multitude around them, and scribes questioning them.

Immediately all the multitude, when they saw him, were greatly amazed, and running to him, greeted him.

He asked the scribes, “What are you asking them?”

One of the multitude answered, “Teacher, I brought to you my son, who has a mute spirit; and wherever it seizes him, it throws him down; and he foams at the mouth, grinds his teeth, and becomes rigid. I asked your disciples to cast it out, and they weren’t able.”

He answered him, “Unbelieving generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him to me.”

They brought him to him, and when he saw him, immediately the spirit convulsed him and he fell on the ground, wallowing and foaming at the mouth.

He asked his father, “How long has it been since this has been happening to him?” He said, “From childhood.

Often it has cast him both into the fire and into the water to destroy him. But if you can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.”

Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”

Immediately the father of the child cried out with tears, “I believe. Help my unbelief!”

When Jesus saw that a multitude came running together, he rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to him, “You mute and deaf spirit, I command you, come out of him, and never enter him again!”

After crying out and convulsing him greatly, it came out of him. The boy became like one dead, so much that most of them said, “He is dead.”

But Jesus took him by the hand and raised him up; and he arose.

When he had come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, “Why couldn’t we cast it out?”

He said to them, “This kind can come out by nothing but by prayer and fasting.”
