Reading 1: SIR 42:15-25

The first reading from The Wisdom of Jesus the Son of Sirach or Ecclesiasticus.

I will make mention now of the works of the Lord, and will declare the things that I have seen. The Lord’s works are in his words.

The sun that gives light looks at all things. The Lord’s work is full of his glory.

The Lord has not given power to the saints to declare all his marvelous works, which the Almighty Lord firmly settled, that the universe might be established in his glory.

He searches out the deep and the heart. He has understanding of their secrets. For the Most High knows all knowledge. He sees the signs of the world.

He declares the things that are past and the things that shall be, and reveals the traces of hidden things.

No thought escapes him. There is not a word hidden from him.

He has ordered the mighty works of his wisdom. He is from everlasting to everlasting. Nothing has been added to them, nor diminished from them. He had no need of any counselor.

How desirable are all his works! One may see this even in a spark.

All these things live and remain forever in all manner of uses. They are all obedient.

All things are in pairs, one opposite the other. He has made nothing imperfect.

One thing establishes the good things of another. Who could ever see enough of his glory?

Gospel of the Day: MK 10:46-52

From the gospel scripture according to Mark.

They came to Jericho. As he went out from Jericho with his disciples and a great multitude, the son of Timaeus, Bartimaeus, a blind beggar, was sitting by the road.

When he heard that it was Jesus the Nazarene, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, you son of David, have mercy on me!”

Many rebuked him, that he should be quiet, but he cried out much more, “You son of David, have mercy on me!”

Jesus stood still and said, “Call him.” They called the blind man, saying to him, “Cheer up! Get up. He is calling you!”

He, casting away his cloak, sprang up, and came to Jesus.

Jesus asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?” The blind man said to him, “Rabboni, that I may see again.”

Jesus said to him, “Go your way. Your faith has made you well.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus on the way.
