Friday, January 28, 2005
+JMJPT+
Here are the Sacred Scripture readings for Holy Mass for Friday, January 28th, 2005. Please take a moment and meditate on Friday's readings and unite yourself in prayer with the Church throughout the world. Please remember the Holy Father and his intentions in your prayers today and always. Today, please also remember those who suffer at the hands of others for the sake of Christ and pray for all Christians and all peoples throughout the world. May the Light of Truth illuminate all of our hearts and minds! Please remember my daughter and I and those in our lives in your prayers (thanks!!). I have also posted the Litany of the Holy Name of Jesus at the bottom of this posting along with several links that may be of assistance to you. May Our Lord and Savior richly bless you and may Our Lady keep you beneath her loving protective mantle of grace!!
Omnia Pro Jesu Per Mariam!!

Memorial of Saint Thomas Aquinas, priest and doctor of the Church

Reading I
Heb 10:32-39


Remember the days past when, after you had been enlightened,
you endured a great contest of suffering.
At times you were publicly exposed to abuse and affliction;
at other times you associated yourselves with those so treated.
You even joined in the sufferings of those in prison
and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property,
knowing that you had a better and lasting possession.
Therefore, do not throw away your confidence;
it will have great recompense.
You need endurance to do the will of God and receive what he has promised.

For, after just a brief moment,
he who is to come shall come;
he shall not delay.
But my just one shall live by faith,
and if he draws back I take no pleasure in him.

We are not among those who draw back and perish,
but among those who have faith and will possess life.


Responsorial Psalm
Ps 37:3-4, 5-6, 23-24, 39-40

R (39a) The salvation of the just comes from the Lord.
Trust in the LORD and do good,
that you may dwell in the land and be fed in security.
Take delight in the LORD,
and he will grant you your heart"s requests.
R The salvation of the just comes from the Lord.
Commit to the LORD your way;
trust in him, and he will act.
He will make justice dawn for you like the light;
bright as the noonday shall be your vindication.
R The salvation of the just comes from the Lord.
By the LORD are the steps of a man made firm,
and he approves his way.
Though he fall, he does not lie prostrate,
for the hand of the LORD sustains him.
R The salvation of the just comes from the Lord.
The salvation of the just is from the LORD;
he is their refuge in time of distress.
And the LORD helps them and delivers them;
he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
because they take refuge in him.
R The salvation of the just comes from the Lord.


Gospel
Mk 4:26-34


Jesus said to the crowds:
"This is how it is with the Kingdom of God;
it is as if a man were to scatter seed on the land
and would sleep and rise night and day
and the seed would sprout and grow,
he knows not how.
Of its own accord the land yields fruit,
first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear.
And when the grain is ripe, he wields the sickle at once,
for the harvest has come."

He said,
"To what shall we compare the Kingdom of God,
or what parable can we use for it?
It is like a mustard seed that, when it is sown in the ground,
is the smallest of all the seeds on the earth.
But once it is sown, it springs up and becomes the largest of plants
and puts forth large branches,
so that the birds of the sky can dwell in its shade."
With many such parables
he spoke the word to them as they were able to understand it.
Without parables he did not speak to them,
but to his own disciples he explained everything in private.
