Reading 1 and//usccb.org/bible/wisdom/2:12 WIS 2:12, 17-20 The wicked sayandLet us beset the just one, because he is obnoxious to ushe sets himself against our doings,reproaches us for transgressions of the lawand charges us with violations of our training.Let us see whether his words be truelet us find out what will happen to him.For if the just one be the son of God, God will defend himand deliver him from the hand of his foes.With revilement and torture let us put the just one to the testthat we may have proof of his gentlenessand try his patience.Let us condemn him to a shameful deathfor according to his own words, God will take care of him.

Behold, God is my helperthe Lord sustains my life.Freely will I offer you sacrificeI will praise your name, O LORD, for its goodness. R.The Lord upholds my life. Reading 2 and//usccb.org/bible/james/3:16 JAS 3:16—4and3 BelovedandWhere jealousy and selfish ambition exist,there is disorder and every foul practice.But the wisdom from above is first of all pure,then peaceable, gentle, compliant,full of mercy and good fruits,without inconstancy or insincerity.And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peacefor those who cultivate peace.Where do the warsand where do the conflicts among you come from?Is it not from your passionsthat make war within your members?You covet but do not possess.You kill and envy but you cannot obtainyou fight and wage war.You do not possess because you do not ask.You ask but do not receive,because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions. Alleluia and//usccb.org/bible/2thessalonians/2:14 CF. 2 THESS 2:14 R.Alleluia, alleluia.God has called us through the Gospelto possess the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.R.Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel and//usccb.org/bible/mark/9:30 MK 9:30-37 Jesus and his disciples left from there and began a journey through Galilee,but he did not wish anyone to know about it.He was teaching his disciples and telling them, The Son of Man is to be handed over to menand they will kill him,and three days after his death the Son of Man will rise.”But they did not understand the saying,and they were afraid to question him.They came to Capernaum and, once inside the house,he began to ask them, What were you arguing about on the way?”But they remained silent.They had been discussing among themselves on the waywho was the greatest.Then he sat down, called the Twelve, and said to them, If anyone wishes to be first,he shall be the last of all and the servant of all.”Taking a child, he placed it in the their midst,and putting his arms around it, he said to them, Whoever receives one child such as this in my name, receives meand whoever receives me,receives not me but the One who sent me.”
