Monday of the Eighth Week in Ordinary Time

Reading 1 1 Pt 1:3-9

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,who in his great mercy gave us a new birth to a living hopethrough the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading,kept in heaven for youwho by the power of God are safeguarded through faith,to a salvation that is ready to be revealed in the final time.In this you rejoice, although now for a little whileyou may have to suffer through various trials,so that the genuineness of your faith,more precious than gold that is perishable even though tested by fire,may prove to be for praise, glory, and honorat the revelation of Jesus Christ.Although you have not seen him you love him;even though you do not see him now yet you believe in him,you rejoice with an indescribable and glorious joy,as you attain the goal of faith, the salvation of your souls.

Gospel Mk 10:17-27

As Jesus was setting out on a journey, a man ran up,knelt down before him, and asked him,"Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?"Jesus answered him, "Why do you call me good?No one is good but God alone.You know the commandments: You shall not kill;you shall not commit adultery;you shall not steal;you shall not bear false witness;you shall not defraud;honor your father and your mother."He replied and said to him,"Teacher, all of these I have observed from my youth." Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said to him,"You are lacking in one thing.Go, sell what you have, and give to the poorand you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me."At that statement, his face fell,and he went away sad, for he had many possessions.Jesus looked around and said to his disciples,"How hard it is for those who have wealthto enter the Kingdom of God!"The disciples were amazed at his words.So Jesus again said to them in reply,"Children, how hard it is to enter the Kingdom of God!It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needlethan for one who is rich to enter the Kingdom of God."They were exceedingly astonished and said among themselves,"Then who can be saved?"Jesus looked at them and said,"For men it is impossible, but not for God.All things are possible for God."

The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

Reading 1 Dt 4:32-34, 39-40

Moses said to the people:"Ask now of the days of old, before your time,ever since God created man upon the earth;ask from one end of the sky to the other:Did anything so great ever happen before?Was it ever heard of?Did a people ever hear the voice of Godspeaking from the midst of fire, as you did, and live?Or did any god venture to go and take a nation for himselffrom the midst of another nation,by testings, by signs and wonders, by war,with strong hand and outstretched arm, and by great terrors,all of which the LORD, your God,did for you in Egypt before your very eyes?This is why you must now know,and fix in your heart, that the LORD is Godin the heavens above and on earth below,and that there is no other.You must keep his statutes and commandments that I enjoin on you today,that you and your children after you may prosper,and that you may have long life on the landwhich the LORD, your God, is giving you forever."

Responsorial Psalm Ps 33:4-5, 6, 9, 18-19, 20, 22

R. (12b) Blessed the people the Lord has chosen to be his own.Upright is the word of the LORD,and all his works are trustworthy.He loves justice and right;of the kindness of the Lord the earth is full.R. Blessed the people the Lord has chosen to be his own.By the word of the LORD the heavens were made;by the breath of his mouth all their host.For he spoke, and it was made;he commanded, and it stood forth.R. Blessed the people the Lord has chosen to be his own.See, the eyes of the LORD are upon those who fear him,upon those who hope for his kindness,To deliver them from deathand preserve them in spite of famine.R. Blessed the people the Lord has chosen to be his own.Our soul waits for the LORD,who is our help and our shield.May your kindness, O LORD, be upon uswho have put our hope in you.R. Blessed the people the Lord has chosen to be his own.

Reading 2 Rom 8:14-17

Brothers and sisters:For those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear,but you received a Spirit of adoption,through whom we cry, "Abba, Father!"The Spirit himself bears witness with our spiritthat we are children of God,and if children, then heirs,heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ,if only we suffer with himso that we may also be glorified with him.

Gospel Mt 28:16-20

The eleven disciples went to Galilee,to the mountain to which Jesus had ordered them.When they all saw him, they worshiped, but they doubted.Then Jesus approached and said to them,"All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me.Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations,baptizing them in the name of the Father,and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age."
