Readings for Friday 9th Week of Ordinary Time

First Reading
2 Tm 3:10-17

All who want to live religiously in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.

A reading from the second Letter of Saint Paul to Timothy

You have followed my teaching, way of life,
   purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance, persecutions,
   and sufferings, such as happened to me
   in Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra,
   persecutions that I endured.
Yet from all these things the Lord delivered me.
In fact, all who want to live religiously in Christ Jesus
   will be persecuted.
But wicked people and charlatans will go from bad to worse,
   deceivers and deceived.
But you, remain faithful to what you have learned and believed,
   because you know from whom you learned it,
   and that from infancy you have known the sacred Scriptures,
   which are capable of giving you wisdom for salvation
   through faith in Christ Jesus.
All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching,
   for refutation, for correction,
   and for training in righteousness,
   so that one who belongs to God may be competent,
   equipped for every good work.

Gospel
Mk 12: 35-37

How do the Scribes claim that the Christ is the son of David?

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Mark

As Jesus was teaching in the temple area he said,
   “How do the scribes claim that the Christ is the son of David?
David himself, inspired by the Holy Spirit, said:
   The Lord said to my lord,
   ‘Sit at my right hand
   until I place your enemies under your feet.’
David himself calls him ‘lord’;
   so how is he his son?”
The great crowd heard this with delight.”

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.
