Reading 1: GN 8:6-13, 20-22

The first reading from the Book of Genesis.

At the end of forty days, Noah opened the window of the ship which he had made, and he sent out a raven. It went back and forth, until the waters were dried up from the earth.

He himself sent out a dove to see if the waters were abated from the surface of the ground, but the dove found no place to rest her foot, and she returned into the ship to him, for the waters were on the surface of the whole earth. He put out his hand, and took her, and brought her to him into the ship.

He waited yet another seven days; and again he sent the dove out of the ship.

The dove came back to him at evening and, behold, in her mouth was a freshly plucked olive leaf. So Noah knew that the waters were abated from the earth.

He waited yet another seven days, and sent out the dove; and she didn’t return to him any more.

In the six hundred first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from the earth. Noah removed the covering of the ship, and looked. He saw that the surface of the ground was dry.

Noah built an altar to Yahweh, and took of every clean animal, and of every clean bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.

Yahweh smelled the pleasant aroma. Yahweh said in his heart, “I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake because the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth. I will never again strike every living thing, as I have done.

While the earth remains, seed time and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night will not cease.”

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.”
