The 14th of January, 2023 is Saturday in the First Week of Ordinary Time. The Holy Bible verses for the mass readings for this day came from the Liturgical Calendar of the Year 2023.

Reading 1: HEB 4:12-16

The first reading from The Letter to the Hebrews.

For the word of God is living and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and is able to discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

There is no creature that is hidden from his sight, but all things are naked and laid open before the eyes of him to whom we must give an account.

Having then a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let’s hold tightly to our confession.

For we don’t have a high priest who can’t be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but one who has been in all points tempted like we are, yet without sin.

Let’s therefore draw near with boldness to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and may find grace for help in time of need.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 19:7, 8, 9, 14

Yahweh’s law is perfect, restoring the soul. Yahweh’s covenant is sure, making wise the simple.

R: “The words that I speak to you are spirit, and are life.”

Yahweh’s precepts are right, rejoicing the heart. Yahweh’s commandment is pure, enlightening the eyes.

R: “The words that I speak to you are spirit, and are life.”

The fear of Yahweh is clean, enduring forever. Yahweh’s ordinances are true, and righteous altogether.

R: “The words that I speak to you are spirit, and are life.”

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, Yahweh, my rock, and my redeemer.

R: “The words that I speak to you are spirit, and are life.”

Gospel of the Day: MK 2:13-17

From the gospel scripture according to Mark.

He went out again by the seaside. All the multitude came to him, and he taught them.

As he passed by, he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax office. He said to him, “Follow me.” And he arose and followed him.

He was reclining at the table in his house, and many tax collectors and sinners sat down with Jesus and his disciples, for there were many, and they followed him.

The scribes and the Pharisees, when they saw that he was eating with the sinners and tax collectors, said to his disciples, “Why is it that he eats and drinks with tax collectors and sinners?”

When Jesus heard it, he said to them, “Those who are healthy have no need for a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”
