Reading 1 and//usccb.org/bible/1kings/8:22 1 KGS 8:22-23, 27-30 Solomon stood before the altar of the LORDin the presence of the whole community of Israel,and stretching forth his hands toward heaven,he said, LORD, God of Israel,there is no God like you in heaven above or on earth belowyou keep your covenant of mercy with your servantswho are faithful to you with their whole heart. Can it indeed be that God dwells on earth?If the heavens and the highest heavens cannot contain you,how much less this temple which I have built!Look kindly on the prayer and petition of your servant, O LORD, my God,and listen to the cry of supplication which I, your servant,utter before you this day.May your eyes watch night and day over this temple,the place where you have decreed you shall be honoredmay you heed the prayer which I, your servant, offer in this place.Listen to the petitions of your servant and of your people Israelwhich they offer in this place.Listen from your heavenly dwelling and grant pardon.” Responsorial Psalm and//usccb.org/bible/psalms/84and3 PS 84and3, 4, 5 AND 10, 11 R. (2)How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord, mighty God! My soul yearns and pinesfor the courts of the LORD.My heart and my fleshcry out for the living God. R.How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord, mighty God! Even the sparrow finds a home,and the swallow a nestin which she puts her young—Your altars, O LORD of hosts,my king and my God! R.How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord, mighty God! Blessed they who dwell in your house!continually they praise you.O God, behold our shield,and look upon the face of your anointed. R.How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord, mighty God! I had rather one day in your courtsthan a thousand elsewhereI had rather lie at the threshold of the house of my Godthan dwell in the tents of the wicked. R.How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord, mighty God! Alleluia and//usccb.org/bible/psalms/119:36 PS 119:36, 29B R.Alleluia, alleluia.Incline my heart, O God, to your decreesand favor me with your law.R.Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel and//usccb.org/bible/mark/7and1 MK 7and1-13 When the Pharisees with some scribes who had come from Jerusalemgathered around Jesus,they observed that some of his disciples ate their mealswith unclean, that is, unwashed, hands.(For the Pharisees and, in fact, all Jews,do not eat without carefully washing their hands,keeping the tradition of the elders.And on coming from the marketplacethey do not eat without purifying themselves.And there are many other things that they have traditionally observed,the purification of cups and jugs and kettles and beds.)So the Pharisees and scribes questioned him, Why do your disciples not follow the tradition of the eldersbut instead eat a meal with unclean hands?”He responded, Well did Isaiah prophesy about you hypocrites,as it is writtenandThis people honors me with their lips,but their hearts are far from meIn vain do they worship me,teaching as doctrines human precepts.You disregard God’s commandment but cling to human tradition.”He went on to say, How well you have set aside the commandment of Godin order to uphold your tradition!For Moses said,Honor your father and your mother,andWhoever curses father or mother shall die.Yet you say,‘If someone says to father or mother, Any support you might have had from me isqorban”’(meaning, dedicated to God),you allow him to do nothing more for his father or mother.You nullify the word of Godin favor of your tradition that you have handed on.And you do many such things.”
