Gospel: Matthew 9:14-15
Then the disciples of John came to him with the question, “How is it, that we and the Pharisees fast on many occasions, but not your disciples?”
Jesus answered them, “How can you expect wedding guests to mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? The time will come,
when the bridegroom will be taken away from them, and then, they will fast.
Gospel: Luke 9:22-25
And he added, “The Son of Man must suffer many things. He will be rejected by the elders and chief priests and teachers of the law,
and be put to death. Then after three days he will be raised to life.”
Jesus also said to all the people, “If you wish to be a follower of mine, deny yourself and take up your cross each day, and follow me!
For if you choose to save your life, you will lose it; but if you lose your life for my sake, you will save it.
Gospel: Matthew 6:1-6, 16-18
Be careful not to make a show of your good deeds before people. If you do so, you do not gain anything from your Father in heaven.
When you give something to the poor, do not have it trumpeted before you, as do those who want to be noticed in the synagogues and in the streets,
in order to be praised by people. I assure you, they have their reward. If you give something to the poor,
Gospel: Mark 9:30-37
After leaving that place, they made their way through Galilee; but Jesus did not want people to know where he was because he was teaching his disciples.
And he told them, “The Son of Man will be delivered into the hands of men. They will kill him, but three days after he has been killed,
he will rise.” The disciples, however, did not understand these words and they were afraid to ask him what he meant.
Gospel: Mark 9:14-29
When they came to the place where they had left the disciples, they saw many people around them and some teachers of the law arguing with them.
When the people saw Jesus, they were astonished and ran to greet him. He asked, “What are you arguing about with them?”
A man answered him from the crowd, “Master, I brought my son to you, for he has a spirit, deaf and mute. Whenever the spirit seizes him,
it throws him down and he foams at the mouth, grinds his teeth and becomes stiff all over. I asked your disciples to drive the spirit out,
Gospel: Matthew 5:38-48
You have heard, that it was said: An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. But I tell you this: do not oppose evil with evil;
if someone slaps you on your right cheek, turn and offer the other. If someone sues you in court for your shirt, give him your coat as well.
If someone forces you to go one mile, go two miles with him. Give when asked, and do not turn your back on anyone who wants to borrow from you.
You have heard, that it was said: Love your neighbor and do not do good to your enemy. But this I tell you: love your enemies;
Gospel: Matthew 16:13-19
After that, Jesus came to Caesarea Philippi. He asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?”
They said, “For some of them, you are John the Baptist; for others Elijah, or Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.”
Jesus asked them, “But you, who do you say I am?”
Gospel: Mark 8:34 – 9:1
Then Jesus called the people and his disciples, and said, “If you want to follow me, deny yourself; take up your cross and follow me.
For if you choose to save your life, you will lose it; and if you lose your life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, you will save it.
What good is it, to gain the whole world, while destroying your soul? There is nothing more precious than your soul. I tell you,
Gospel: Mark 8:27-33
Jesus set out with his disciples for the villages around Caesarea Philippi; and on the way he asked them, “Who do people say I am?” And they told him,
“Some say, you are John the Baptist; others say, you are Elijah or one of the prophets.”
Then Jesus asked them, “But you, who do you say I am?” Peter answered, “You are the Messiah.” And he ordered them not to tell anyone about him.
Gospel: Mark 8:22-26
When they came to Bethsaida, Jesus was asked to touch a blind man who was brought to him. He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village.
When he had put spittle on his eyes and laid his hands upon him, he asked, “Can you see anything?”
The man, who was beginning to see, replied, “I see people! They look like trees, but they move around.”
