THE SIXTEENTH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY
INTRODUCTORY SENTENCE: Answer me when I call, O God, defender of my cause; have mercy on me and hear my prayer. Psalm 4:1
Lord of creation,
whose glory is around and within us:
open our eyes to your wonders,
that we may serve you with reverence
and know your peace at our lives’ end,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
FIRST READING Jeremiah11:18-20
This is the first of the “laments” of Jeremiah. It reveals the acute loneliness and isolation of the prophet and the torment of his inner life as he speaks under the compulsion of God’s command.
The psalm reflects the distressed cry of the first reading. But, although persecuted by the ungodly, there is no doubt in the psalmist’s mind that God will rescue him.
A reading from the book of the prophet Jeremiah.
It was the LORD who made it known to me, and I knew; then you showed me their evil deeds. But I was like a gentle lamb led to the slaughter. And I did not know it was against me that they devised schemes, saying, ‘Let us destroy the tree with its fruit, let us cut him off from the land of the living, so that his name will no longer be remembered!’ But you, O LORD of hosts, who judge righteously, who try the heart and the mind, let me see your retribution upon them, for to you I have committed my cause.
This is the Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God
RESPONSORIAL PSALM from Psalm 54
(R.) The Lord upholds my life.
1. O God, save me by your name;
by your power, uphold your cause.
O God, hear my prayer;
listen to the words of my mouth. (R.)
2. For proud men have risen against me,
ruthless me seek my life.
They have no regard for God. (R.)
3. But I have God for my help.
The Lord upholds my life.
I will sacrifice to you with willing heart
and praise your name for it is good. (R.)
SECOND READING James 3:13-4:3,7-8a
The wise are those whose wisdom comes from God, from above. This wisdom is shown in the quality of their lives: kindness, love and consideration contrasted with the greed of selfish.
A reading from the letter of James.
Who is wise and understanding among you? Show by your good life that your works are done with gentleness born of wisdom. But if you have bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not be boastful and false to the truth. Such wisdom does not come down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, devilish. For where there is envy and selfish ambition, there will also be disorder and wickedness of every kind. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without a trace of partiality or hypocrisy. And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace for those who make peace.
Those conflicts and disputes among you, where do they come from? Do they not come from your cravings that are at war within you? You want something and do not have it; so you commit murder. And you covet something and cannot obtain it; so you engage in disputes and conflicts. You do not have, because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, in order to spend what you get on your pleasures. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.
This is the Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God
GOSPEL Mark 9:30-37
The disciples come down from the mount of Transfiguration and back to the realities of life. Jesus once more predicts his passion but the disciples fail to understand and instead argue with each other over precedence. Hear the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Mark.
Glory to you, O Lord.
After leaving the mountain Jesus and his disciples went on from there and passed through Galilee. He did not want anyone to know it; for he was teaching his disciples, saying to them, ‘The Son of Man is to be betrayed into human hands, and they will kill him, and three days after being killed, he will rise again.’ But they did not understand what he was saying and were afraid to ask him.
Then they came to Capernaum; and when he was in the house he asked them, ‘What were you arguing about on the way?’ But they were silent, for on the way they had argued with one another who was the greatest. He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, ‘Whoever wants to be first must be last of all and servant of all.’ Then he took a little child and put it among them; and taking it in his arms, he said to them, ‘Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the one who sent me.’
This is the Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, O Christ.
