The 11th of February, 2023 is Saturday in the Fifth 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: GN 3:9-24

The first reading from the Book of Genesis.

Yahweh God called to the man, and said to him, “Where are you?”

The man said, “I heard your voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; so I hid myself.”

God said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?”

The man said, “The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me fruit from the tree, and I ate it.”

Yahweh God said to the woman, “What have you done?” The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

Yahweh God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, you are cursed above all livestock, and above every animal of the field. You shall go on your belly and you shall eat dust all the days of your life.

I will put hostility between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will bruise your head, and you will bruise his heel.”

To the woman he said, “I will greatly multiply your pain in childbirth. You will bear children in pain. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.”

To Adam he said, “Because you have listened to your wife’s voice, and have eaten from the tree, about which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it,’ the ground is cursed for your sake. You will eat from it with much labor all the days of your life.

It will yield thorns and thistles to you; and you will eat the herb of the field.

You will eat bread by the sweat of your face until you return to the ground, for you were taken out of it. For you are dust, and you shall return to dust.”

The man called his wife Eve because she would be the mother of all the living.

Yahweh God made garments of animal skins for Adam and for his wife, and clothed them.

Yahweh God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil. Now, lest he reach out his hand, and also take of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever-” Therefore Yahweh God sent him out from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from which he was taken.

So he drove out the man; and he placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 90:2, 3-4ABC, 5-6, 12-13

Response: Lord, you have been our dwelling place for all generations.

Before the mountains were born, before you had formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, you are God.

R: Lord, you have been our dwelling place for all generations.

You turn man to destruction, saying, “Return, you children of men.”

For a thousand years in your sight are just like yesterday when it is past, like a watch in the night.

R: Lord, you have been our dwelling place for all generations.

You sweep them away as they sleep. In the morning they sprout like new grass.

In the morning it sprouts and springs up. By evening, it is withered and dry.

R: Lord, you have been our dwelling place for all generations.

So teach us to count our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

Relent, Yahweh! How long? Have compassion on your servants!

R: Lord, you have been our dwelling place for all generations.

Gospel of the Day: MK 8:1-10

From the gospel scripture according to Mark.

In those days, when there was a very great multitude, and they had nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples to himself and said to them, “I have compassion on the multitude, because they have stayed with me now three days and have nothing to eat.

If I send them away fasting to their home, they will faint on the way, for some of them have come a long way.”

His disciples answered him, “From where could one satisfy these people with bread here in a deserted place?”

He asked them, “How many loaves do you have?” They said, “Seven.”

He commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground, and he took the seven loaves. Having given thanks, he broke them and gave them to his disciples to serve, and they served the multitude.

They also had a few small fish. Having blessed them, he said to serve these also.

They ate and were filled. They took up seven baskets of broken pieces that were left over.

Those who had eaten were about four thousand. Then he sent them away.

Immediately he entered into the boat with his disciples and came into the region of Dalmanutha.
