Reading 1, Hebrews 4:1-5, 11 Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 78:3, 4, 6-7, 8 Gospel, Mark 2:1-12
Reading 1, Hebrews 4:1-5, 11
1 Let us beware, then: since the promise never lapses, none of you must think that he has come too late for the promise of entering his place of rest.
3 We, however, who have faith, are entering a place of rest, as in the text: And then in my anger I swore that they would never enter my place of rest. Now God's work was all finished at the beginning of the world;
4 as one text says, referring to the seventh day: And God rested on the seventh day after all the work he had been doing.
5 And, again, the passage above says: They will never reach my place of rest.
11 Let us, then, press forward to enter this place of rest, or some of you might copy this example of refusal to believe and be lost.
Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 78:3, 4, 6-7, 8
3 What we have heard and know, what our ancestors have told us
7 and should put their trust in God, never forgetting God's great deeds, always keeping his commands,
Gospel, Mark 2:1-12
1 When he returned to Capernaum, some time later word went round that he was in the house;
2 and so many people collected that there was no room left, even in front of the door. He was preaching the word to them
3 when some people came bringing him a paralytic carried by four men,
4 but as they could not get the man to him through the crowd, they stripped the roof over the place where Jesus was; and when they had made an opening, they lowered the stretcher on which the paralytic lay.
5 Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the paralytic, 'My child, your sins are forgiven.'
6 Now some scribes were sitting there, and they thought to themselves,
8 And at once, Jesus, inwardly aware that this is what they were thinking, said to them, 'Why do you have these thoughts in your hearts?
9 Which of these is easier: to say to the paralytic, "Your sins are forgiven" or to say, "Get up, pick up your stretcher and walk"?
10 But to prove to you that the Son of man has authority to forgive sins on earth' --
11 he said to the paralytic-'I order you: get up, pick up your stretcher, and go off home.'
