Daily Mass Reading – 21 January 2015 – Wednesday

Wednesday in Week 2
Reading 1: Hebrews 7:1-3, 15-17
1 This “Melchizedek, king of Salem and priest of God Most High,” “met Abraham as he returned from his defeat of the kings” and “blessed him.”

2 And Abraham apportioned to him “a tenth of everything.” His name first means righteous king, and he was also “king of Salem,” that is, king of peace.

3 Without father, mother, or ancestry, without beginning of days or end of life, thus made to resemble the Son of God, he remains a priest forever.

15 It is even more obvious if another priest is raised up after the likeness of Melchizedek,

16 who has become so, not by a law expressed in a commandment concerning physical descent but by the power of a life that cannot be destroyed.

17 For it is testified: “You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.”

Gospel: Mark 3:1-6
1 Again he entered the synagogue. There was a man there who had a withered hand.

2 They watched him closely to see if he would cure him on the sabbath so that they might accuse him.

3 He said to the man with the withered hand, “Come up here before us.”

4 Then he said to them, “Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath rather than to do evil, to save life rather than to destroy it?” But they remained silent.

5 Looking around at them with anger and grieved at their hardness of heart, he said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He stretched it out and his hand was restored.

6 The Pharisees went out and immediately took counsel with the Herodians against him to put him to death.
