Readings from the Franciscan Lectionary

First Reading

Sirach 44:1, 10-15

1Let us now praise famous men, and our fathers in their generations. 10But these were men of mercy, whose righteous deeds have not been forgotten; 11their prosperity will remain with their descendants, and their inheritance to their children's children. 12Their descendants stand by the covenants; their children also, for their sake. 13Their posterity will continue for ever, and their glory will not be blotted out. 14Their bodies were buried in peace, and their name lives to all generations. 15Peoples will declare their wisdom, and the congregation proclaims their praise.

Responsorial Psalm

Psalms 24:1-6

1The earth is the LORD's and the fulness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein; 2for he has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the rivers. 3Who shall ascend the hill of the LORD? And who shall stand in his holy place? 4He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. 5He will receive blessing from the LORD, and vindication from the God of his salvation. 6Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek the face of the God of Jacob. [Selah]

Gospel

Mark 10:17-21

17And as he was setting out on his journey, a man ran up and knelt before him, and asked him, "Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?" 18And Jesus said to him, "Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. 19You know the commandments: `Do not kill, Do not commit adultery, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Do not defraud, Honor your father and mother.'" 20And he said to him, "Teacher, all these I have observed from my youth." 21And Jesus looking upon him loved him, and said to him, "You lack one thing; go, sell what you have, and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me."
