Daily Reading for Friday February 8, 2019
Reading 1, Hebrews 13:1-8 Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 27:1, 3, 5, 8-9 Gospel, Mark 6:14-29
Reading 1, Hebrews 13:1-8
1 Continue to love each other like brothers,
2 and remember always to welcome strangers, for by doing this, some people have entertained angels without knowing it.
3 Keep in mind those who are in prison, as though you were in prison with them; and those who are being badly treated, since you too are in the body.
4 Marriage must be honoured by all, and marriages must be kept undefiled, because the sexually immoral and adulterers will come under God's judgement.
6 and so we can say with confidence: With the Lord on my side, I fear nothing: what can human beings do to me?
Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 27:1, 3, 5, 8-9
2 When the wicked advance against me to eat me up, they, my opponents, my enemies, are the ones who stumble and fall.
5 For he hides me away under his roof on the day of evil, he folds me in the recesses of his tent, sets me high on a rock.
8 Of you my heart has said, 'Seek his face!' Your face, Yahweh, I seek;
9 do not turn away from me. Do not thrust aside your servant in anger, without you I am helpless. Never leave me, never forsake me, God, my Saviour.
Gospel, Mark 6:14-29
15 Others said, 'He is Elijah,' others again, 'He is a prophet, like the prophets we used to have.'
19 As for Herodias, she was furious with him and wanted to kill him, but she was not able to do so,
21 An opportunity came on Herod's birthday when he gave a banquet for the nobles of his court, for his army officers and for the leading figures in Galilee.
23 And he swore her an oath, 'I will give you anything you ask, even half my kingdom.'
24 She went out and said to her mother, 'What shall I ask for?' She replied, 'The head of John the Baptist.'
25 The girl at once rushed back to the king and made her request, 'I want you to give me John the Baptist's head, immediately, on a dish.'
26 The king was deeply distressed but, thinking of the oaths he had sworn and of his guests, he was reluctant to break his word to her.
27 At once the king sent one of the bodyguard with orders to bring John's head.
28 The man went off and beheaded him in the prison; then he brought the head on a dish and gave it to the girl, and the girl gave it to her mother.
29 When John's disciples heard about this, they came and took his body and laid it in a tomb.
