Reading 1, Second Kings 2:1, 6-14
7 Fifty of the brotherhood of prophets followed them, halting some distance away as the two of them stood beside the Jordan.
8 Elijah took his cloak, rolled it up and struck the water; and the water divided to left and right, and the two of them crossed over dry-shod.
12 Elisha saw it, and shouted, 'My father! My father! Chariot of Israel and its chargers!' Then he lost sight of him, and taking hold of his own clothes he tore them in half.
13 He picked up Elijah's cloak which had fallen, and went back and stood on the bank of the Jordan.
Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 31:20, 21, 24

24 Be brave, take heart, all who put your hope in Yahweh.

5 'And when you pray, do not imitate the hypocrites: they love to say their prayers standing up in the synagogues and at the street corners for people to see them. In truth I tell you, they have had their reward.
16 'When you are fasting, do not put on a gloomy look as the hypocrites do: they go about looking unsightly to let people know they are fasting. In truth I tell you, they have had their reward.
17 But when you fast, put scent on your head and wash your face,
