Daily Mass Readings – 11 October 2015 – Sunday

Mass Readings for other dates

28th Sunday in Year B
First Reading: Wisdom 7: 7-11

7 Therefore I prayed, and prudence was given me; I pleaded and the spirit of Wisdom came to me.

8 I preferred her to scepter and throne, And deemed riches nothing in comparison with her,

9 nor did I liken any priceless gem to her; Because all gold, in view of her, is a little sand, and before her, silver is to be accounted mire.

10 Beyond health and comeliness I loved her, And I chose to have her rather than the light, because the splendor of her never yields to sleep.

11 Yet all good things together came to me in her company, and countless riches at her hands;

Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 90: 12-13, 14-15, 16-17

12 Teach us to count our days aright, that we may gain wisdom of heart.

13 Relent, O LORD! How long? Have pity on your servants!

14 Fill us at daybreak with your love, that all our days we may sing for joy.

15 Make us glad as many days as you humbled us, for as many years as we have seen trouble.

16 Show your deeds to your servants, your glory to their children.

17 May the favor of the Lord our God be ours. Prosper the work of our hands! Prosper the work of our hands!

Second Reading: Hebrews 4: 12-13

12 Indeed, the word of God is living and effective, sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating even between soul and spirit, joints and marrow, and able to discern reflections and thoughts of the heart.

13 No creature is concealed from him, but everything is naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must render an account.

Gospel: Mark 10: 17-30

17 As he was setting out on a journey, a man ran up, knelt down before him, and asked him, “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

18 Jesus answered him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone.

19 You know the commandments: ‘You shall not kill; you shall not commit adultery; you shall not steal; you shall not bear false witness; you shall not defraud; honor your father and your mother.'”

20 He replied and said to him, “Teacher, all of these I have observed from my youth.”

21 Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said to him, “You are lacking in one thing. Go, sell what you have, and give to (the) poor and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.”

22 At that statement his face fell, and he went away sad, for he had many possessions.

23 Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God!”

24 The disciples were amazed at his words. So Jesus again said to them in reply, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!

25 It is easier for a camel to pass through (the) eye of (a) needle than for one who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”

26 They were exceedingly astonished and said among themselves, “Then who can be saved?”

27 Jesus looked at them and said, “For human beings it is impossible, but not for God. All things are possible for God.”

28 Peter began to say to him, “We have given up everything and followed you.”

29 Jesus said, “Amen, I say to you, there is no one who has given up house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands for my sake and for the sake of the gospel

30 who will not receive a hundred times more now in this present age: houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and eternal life in the age to come.
