Daily Mass Reading – 21 June 2015 – Sunday

Twelth Sunday in Year B
First Reading: Job 38:1, 8-11

1 Then the LORD addressed Job out of the storm and said:

8 And who shut within doors the sea, when it burst forth from the womb;

9 When I made the clouds its garment and thick darkness its swaddling bands?

10 When I set limits for it and fastened the bar of its door,

11 And said: Thus far shall you come but no farther, and here shall your proud waves be stilled!

Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 107:23-26,28-31

23 Some went off to sea in ships, plied their trade on the deep waters.

24 They saw the works of the LORD, the wonders of God in the deep.

25 He spoke and roused a storm wind; it tossed the waves on high.

26 They rose up to the heavens, sank to the depths; their hearts trembled at the danger.

28 In their distress they cried to the LORD, who brought them out of their peril,

29 Hushed the storm to a murmur; the waves of the sea were stilled.

30 They rejoiced that the sea grew calm, that God brought them to the harbor they longed for.

31 Let them thank the LORD for such kindness, such wondrous deeds for mere mortals.

Second Reading: 2 Corinthians 5:14-17

14 For the love of Christ impels us, once we have come to the conviction that one died for all; therefore, all have died.

15 He indeed died for all, so that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.

16 Consequently, from now on we regard no one according to the flesh; even if we once knew Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know him so no longer.

17 So whoever is in Christ is a new creation: the old things have passed away; behold, new things have come.

Gospel: Mark 4:35-41

35 On that day, as evening drew on, he said to them, “Let us cross to the other side.”

36 Leaving the crowd, they took him with them in the boat just as he was. And other boats were with him.

37 A violent squall came up and waves were breaking over the boat, so that it was already filling up.

38 Jesus was in the stern, asleep on a cushion. They woke him and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?”

39 He woke up, rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Quiet! Be still!” The wind ceased and there was great calm.

40 Then he asked them, “Why are you terrified? Do you not yet have faith?”

41 They were filled with great awe and said to one another, “Who then is this whom even wind and sea obey?”
