The 9th of June, 2023 is Friday in the Ninth 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: TB 11:5-17

The first reading from the Book of Tobit.

Anna sat looking around toward the path for her son.

She saw him coming, and said to his father, “Behold, your son is coming with the man that went with him!”

Raphael said, “I know, Tobias, that your father will open his eyes.

Therefore anoint his eyes with the bile, and being pricked with it, he will rub, and will make the white films fall away. Then he will see you.”

Anna ran to him, and fell upon the neck of her son, and said to him, “I have seen you, my child! I am ready to die.” They wept both.

Tobit went toward the door and stumbled; but his son ran to him, and took hold of his father. He rubbed the bile on his father’s eyes, saying, “Cheer up, my father.”

When his eyes began to hurt, he rubbed them.

Then the white films peeled away from the corners of his eyes; and he saw his son, and fell upon his neck.

He wept, and said, “Blessed are you, O God, and blessed is your name forever! Blessed are all your holy angels!

For you scourged, and had mercy on me. Behold, I see my son Tobias.” And his son went in rejoicing, and told his father the great things that had happened to him in Media.

Tobit went out to meet his daughter-in-law at the gate of Nineveh, rejoicing and blessing God. Those who saw him go marveled, because he had received his sight.

Tobit gave thanks before them, because God had shown mercy on him. When Tobit came near to Sarah his daughter-in-law, he blessed her, saying, “Welcome, daughter! Blessed is God who has brought you to us, and blessed are your father and your mother.” And there was joy among all his kindred who were at Nineveh.

Gospel of the Day: MK 12:35-37

From the gospel scripture according to Mark.

Jesus responded, as he taught in the temple, “How is it that the scribes say that the Christ is the son of David?

For David himself said in the Holy Spirit, ‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies the footstool of your feet.”_’

Therefore David himself calls him Lord, so how can he be his son?” The common people heard him gladly.
