Gospel: Mark 16:15-18
Then he told them, “Go out to the whole world and proclaim the Good News to all creation.
The one who believes and is baptized will be saved; the one who refuses to believe will be condemned.
Signs like these will accompany those who have believed: in my name they will cast out demons and speak new languages;
they will pick up snakes, and if they drink anything poisonous, they will be unharmed; they will lay their hands on the sick,
and they will be healed.”
Gospel: Mark 3:13-19
Then Jesus went up into the hill country, and called those he wanted, and they came to him.
He appointed Twelve to be with him, and he called them ‘apostles.’ He wanted to send them out to preach;
and he gave them authority to drive out demons. These are the Twelve: Simon, to whom he gave the name Peter;
James, son of Zebedee, and John his brother, to whom he gave the name Boanerges, which means ‘men of thunder’;
Gospel: Mark 3:7-12
Jesus and his disciples withdrew to the lakeside, and a large crowd from Galilee followed him.
A great number of people also came from Judea, Jerusalem, Idumea, Transjordan, and from the region of Tyre and Sidon,
for they had heard of all that he was doing.
Because of the crowd, Jesus told his disciples to have a boat ready for him, to prevent the people from crushing him.
He healed so many, that all who had diseases kept pressing toward him to touch him. Even the people who had evil spirits,
Gospel: Mark 3:1-6
Again, Jesus entered the synagogue. A man, who had a paralyzed hand, was there; and some people watched Jesus:
would he heal the man on the Sabbath? If he did, they could accuse him.
Jesus said to the man with the paralyzed hand, “Stand here, in the center.” Then he asked them,
“What does the law allow us to do on the Sabbath? To do good or to do harm? To save life or to kill?” But they were silent.
Then Jesus looked around at them with anger and deep sadness at their hardness of heart.
Gospel: Mark 2:23-28
One Sabbath he was walking through grain fields. As his disciples walked along with him, they began to pick the heads
of grain and crush them in their hands. Then the Pharisees said to Jesus, “Look! They are doing what is forbidden on the Sabbath!”
And he said to them, “Have you never read what David did in his time of need; when he and his men were very hungry?
He went into the House of God, when Abiathar was High Priest, and ate; the bread of offering, which only the priests are allowed to eat,
and he also gave some to the men who were with him.” Then Jesus said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.
So the Son of Man is master even of the Sabbath.”
Gospel: Mark 2:18-22
One day, when the Pharisees and the disciples of John the Baptist were fasting, some people asked Jesus,
“Why is it, that both the Pharisees and the disciples of John fast, but yours do not?” Jesus answered,
“How can the wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them? As long as they have the bridegroom with them,
they cannot fast. But the day will come, when the bridegroom will be taken from them, and on that day they will fast.
No one sews a piece of new cloth on an old coat, because the new patch will shrink and tear away from the old cloth,
making a worse tear. And no one puts new wine into old wine skins, for the wine would burst the skins,
and then both the wine and the skins would be lost. But new wine, new skins!”
Gospel: Matthew 18:1-5, 10
At that time, the disciples came to Jesus and asked him, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
Then Jesus called a little child, set the child in the midst of the disciples, and said, “I assure you, that,
unless you change, and become like little children, you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven.
Whoever becomes humble, like this child, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven, and whoever receives such a child,
in my name, receives me.
See that you do not despise any of these little ones; for I tell you, their angels in heaven continually see the face of my heavenly Father.
Gospel: Mark 2:13-17
When Jesus went out again, beside the lake, a crowd came to him and he taught them. As he walked along,
he saw a tax collector sitting in his office. This was Levi, the son of Alpheus. Jesus said to him, “Follow me!”
And Levi got up and followed him.
And it so happened that, when Jesus was eating in Levi’s house, tax collectors and sinners sat with him and his disciples;
there were a lot of them, and they used to follow Jesus.
Gospel: Mark 2:1-12
After some days, Jesus returned to Capernaum. As the news spread that he was in the house, so many people gathered,
that there was no longer room even outside the door. While Jesus was preaching the word to them,
some people brought to him a paralyzed man.
The four men who carried him couldn’t get near Jesus because of the crowd, so they opened the roof above the room where Jesus was and,
through the hole, lowered the man on his mat. When Jesus saw the faith of these people, he said to the paralytic,
“My son, your sins are forgiven.”
Gospel: Mark 1:40-45
A leper came to Jesus and begged him, “If you want to, you can make me clean.” Moved with pity,
Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, “I do want to; be clean.”
The leprosy left the man at once and he was made clean. As Jesus sent the man away, he sternly warned him,
“Don’t tell anyone about this, but go and show yourself to the priest; and for the cleansing,
bring the offering ordered by Moses; in this way, you will give to them your testimony.”
However, as soon as the man went out, he began spreading the news everywhere, so that Jesus could no longer openly enter any town.
But even though he stayed in the rural areas, people came to him from everywhere.
Gospel: Mark 1:29-39
On leaving the synagogue, Jesus went to the home of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.
As Simon’s mother-in-law was sick in bed with fever, they immediately told him about her.
Jesus went to her and, taking her by the hand, raised her up. The fever left her and she began to wait on them.
Gospel: Mark 1:21-28
They went into the town of Capernaum and Jesus taught in the synagogue on the Sabbath day.
The people were astonished at the way he taught, for he spoke as one having authority, and not like the teachers of the law.
It happened that, a man with an evil spirit was in their synagogue, and he shouted, “What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth?
Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are: you are the Holy One of God.” Then Jesus faced him and said with authority,
Gospel: Mark 1:14-20
After John was arrested, Jesus went into Galilee and began preaching the Good News of God.
He said, “The time has come; the kingdom of God is at hand. Change your ways and believe the Good News.”
As Jesus was walking along the shore of Lake Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake,
for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fish for people.”
Gospel: Matthew 3:13-17
At that time, Jesus arrived from Galilee and came to John at the Jordan, to be baptized by him.
But John tried to prevent him, and said, “How is it, you come to me? I should be baptized by you!”
But Jesus answered him, “Let it be like that for now; so that we may fulfill the right order.” John agreed.
As soon as he was baptized, Jesus came up out of the water. All at once, the heavens opened and he saw the Spirit of God come down,
like a dove, and rest upon him. At the same time, a voice from heaven was heard, “This is my Son, the Beloved; he is my Chosen One.”
