Readings for Tuesday Week 3 in Ordinary Time

First Reading
2 Sm 6:12b-15, 17-19

David and all the children of Israel were bringing up the ark of the LORD with shouts of joy.

A reading from the second Book of Samuel

David went to bring up the ark of God from the house of Obed-edom
   into the City of David amid festivities.
As soon as the bearers of the ark of the LORD had advanced six steps,
   he sacrificed an ox and a fatling.
Then David, girt with a linen apron,
   came dancing before the LORD with abandon,
   as he and all the house of Israel were bringing up the ark of the LORD
   with shouts of joy and to the sound of the horn.
The ark of the LORD was brought in and set in its place
   within the tent David had pitched for it.
Then David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the LORD.
When he finished making these offerings,
   he blessed the people in the name of the LORD of hosts.
He then distributed among all the people,
   to each man and each woman in the entire multitude of Israel,
   a loaf of bread, a cut of roast meat, and a raisin cake.
With this, all the people left for their homes.

Gospel
Mk 3:31-35

Whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Mark

The mother of Jesus and his brothers arrived at the house.
Standing outside, they sent word to Jesus and called him.
A crowd seated around him told him,
   “Your mother and your brothers and your sisters
   are outside asking for you.”
But he said to them in reply,
   “Who are my mother and my brothers?”
And looking around at those seated in the circle he said,
   “Here are my mother and my brothers.
For whoever does the will of God
   is my brother and sister and mother.”

At the end of the Gospel, the Deacon, or the Priest, acclaims:

The Gospel of the Lord.

All reply:

Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

Then he kisses the book, saying quietly:

Through the words of the Gospel
may our sins be wiped away.
