Reading 1, James 5:1-6
1 Well now, you rich! Lament, weep for the miseries that are coming to you.
2 Your wealth is rotting, your clothes are all moth-eaten.
4 Can you hear crying out against you the wages which you kept back from the labourers mowing your fields? The cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord Sabaoth.
6 It was you who condemned the upright and killed them; they offered you no resistance.
Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 49:14-15, 15-16, 17-18, 19-20
16 Do not be overawed when someone gets rich, and lives in ever greater splendour;
18 Though he pampered himself while he lived -- and people praise you for looking after yourself-
20 In prosperity people lose their good sense, they become no better than dumb animals.
Gospel, Mark 9:41-50
42 'But anyone who is the downfall of one of these little ones who have faith, would be better thrown into the sea with a great millstone hung round his neck.
43 And if your hand should be your downfall, cut it off; it is better for you to enter into life crippled, than to have two hands and go to hell, into the fire that can never be put out.
45 And if your foot should be your downfall, cut it off; it is better for you enter into life lame, than to have two feet and be thrown into hell.
47 And if your eye should be your downfall, tear it out; it is better for you to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell
48 where their worm will never die nor their fire be put out.
49 For everyone will be salted with fire.
