Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time (Mk 1: 40-45) – God’s Word for Us

For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for him.(Philippians 1:29)

Reading of the day

First reading from the Book of Leviticus
Lv 13:1-2, 44-46

The LORD said to Moses and Aaron,
“If someone has on his skin a scab or pustule or blotch which appears to be the sore of leprosy, he shall be brought to Aaron, the priest, or to one of the priests among his descendants. If the man is leprous and unclean, the priest shall declare him unclean
by reason of the sore on his head.

“The one who bears the sore of leprosy
shall keep his garments rent and his head bare, and shall muffle his beard; he shall cry out, ‘Unclean, unclean!’
As long as the sore is on him he shall declare himself unclean, since he is in fact unclean.
He shall dwell apart, making his abode outside the camp.”

Second reading from the Letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians
1 Cor 10:31—11:1

Brothers and sisters,
Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do,
do everything for the glory of God. Avoid giving offense, whether to the Jews or Greeks or the church of God, just as I try to please everyone in every way, not seeking my own benefit but that of the many, that they may be saved. Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.

Jesus, I love You!
Jesus, I love You!

GOSPEL OF THE DAY

From the Gospel according to Mark
Mk 1:40-45

A leper came to Jesus and kneeling down begged him and said, « If you wish, you can make me clean.” Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand, touched him, and said to him, I do will it. Be made clean.”
The leprosy left him immediately, and he was made clean. Then, warning him sternly, he dismissed him at once. He said to him, “See that you tell no one anything, but go, show yourself to the priest and offer for your cleansing what Moses prescribed; that will be proof for them.”

The man went away and began to publicize the whole matter. He spread the report abroad so that it was impossible for Jesus to enter a town openly. He remained outside in deserted places, and people kept coming to him from everywhere.
