Psalm

Psalms 7:10-11

10My defense is of God, Who saves the upright in heart.11God is a just judge, And God is angry with the wicked every day.

Gospel

Luke 4:38-41

38Now He arose from the synagogue and entered Simon's house. But Simon's wife's mother was sick with a high fever, and they made request of Him concerning her.39So He stood over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her. And immediately she arose and served them.40When the sun was setting, all those who had any that were sick with various diseases brought them to Him; and He laid His hands on every one of them and healed them.41And demons also came out of many, crying out and saying, You are the Christ, the Son of God! And He, rebuking them, did not allow them to speak, for they knew that He was the Christ.

Psalm

Psalms 8:1, 4

1O Lord, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth
4What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him?

Gospel

Mark 1:35-39

35Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed.36And Simon and those who were with Him searched for Him.37When they found Him, they said to Him, Everyone is looking for You.38But He said to them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also, because for this purpose I have come forth.39And He was preaching in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and casting out demons.

2 Timothy 1:12 - 2:10

12For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.13Hold fast the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.14That good thing which was committed to you, keep by the Holy Spirit who dwells in us.15This you know, that all those in Asia have turned away from me, among whom are Phygellus and Hermogenes.16The Lord grant mercy to the household of Onesiphorus, for he often refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain;17but when he arrived in Rome, he sought me out very zealously and found me.18The Lord grant to him that he may find mercy from the Lord in that Day--and you know very well how many ways he ministered to me at Ephesus.1You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.2And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.3You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.4No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier.5And also if anyone competes in athletics, he is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules.6The hard-working farmer must be first to partake of the crops.7Consider what I say, and may the Lord give you understanding in all things.8Remember that Jesus Christ, of the seed of David, was raised from the dead according to my gospel,9for which I suffer trouble as an evildoer, even to the point of chains; but the word of God is not chained.10Therefore I endure all things for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.

Catholic

James 2:5-13

5Listen, my beloved brethren: Has God not chosen the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him?6But you have dishonored the poor man. Do not the rich oppress you and drag you into the courts?7Do they not blaspheme that noble name by which you are called?8If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, You shall love your neighbor as yourself, you do well;9but if you show partiality, you commit sin, and are convicted by the law as transgressors.10For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all.11For He who said, Do not commit adultery, also said, Do not murder. Now if you do not commit adultery, but you do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law.12So speak and so do as those who will be judged by the law of liberty.13For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.

Acts

Acts 11:19-26

19Now those who were scattered after the persecution that arose over Stephen traveled as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to no one but the Jews only.20But some of them were men from Cyprus and Cyrene, who, when they had come to Antioch, spoke to the Hellenists, preaching the Lord Jesus.21And the hand of the Lord was with them, and a great number believed and turned to the Lord.22Then news of these things came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem, and they sent out Barnabas to go as far as Antioch.23When he came and had seen the grace of God, he was glad, and encouraged them all that with purpose of heart they should continue with the Lord.24For he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a great many people were added to the Lord.25Then Barnabas departed for Tarsus to seek Saul.26And when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. So it was that for a whole year they assembled with the church and taught a great many people. And the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch.

Psalm

Psalms 21:1-2

1The king shall have joy in Your strength, O Lord; And in Your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!2You have given him his heart's desire, And have not withheld the request of his lips.

Gospel

Luke 10:21-28

21In that hour Jesus rejoiced in the Spirit and said, I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and revealed them to babes. Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight.22All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.23Then He turned to His disciples and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things you see;24for I tell you that many prophets and kings have desired to see what you see, and have not seen it, and to hear what you hear, and have not heard it.25And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tested Him, saying, Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?26He said to him, What is written in the law? What is your reading of it?27So he answered and said, `You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,' and `your neighbor as yourself.'28And He said to him, You have answered rightly; do this and you will live.
