First Reading:  1 Peter 1: 10-16

It was this salvation that the prophets were looking and searching so hard for; their prophecies were about the grace which was to come to you.  The Spirit of Christ which was in them foretold the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would come after them, and they tried to find out at what time and in what circumstances all this was to be expected.  It was revealed to them that the news they brought of all the things which have now been announced to you, by those who preached to you the Good News through the Holy Spirit sent from heaven, was for you and not for themselves.  Even the angels long to catch a glimpse of these things.

Free your minds, then, of encumbrances; control them, and put your trust in nothing but the grace that will be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed.  Do not behave in the way that you liked to before you learnt the truth; make a habit of obedience: be holy in all you do, since it is the Holy One who has called you, and scripture says: Be holy, for I am holy.

 

Responsorial Psalm:  Psalm 97(98): 1-4

Response:  The Lord has made known his salvation

 

  1. Sing a new song to the Lord
    for he has worked wonders.
    His right hand and his holy arm
    have brought salvation.

 

  1. The Lord has made known his salvation;
    has shown his justice to the nations.
    He has remembered his truth and love
    for the house of Israel.

 

  1. All the ends of the earth have seen
    the salvation of our God.
    Shout to the Lord all the earth,
    ring out your joy.

 

Gospel Acclamation: Alleluia, alleluia! You will shine in the world like bright stars because you are offering it the word of life. Alleluia!

 

Gospel:  Mark 10: 28-31

‘What about us?’ Peter asked Jesus.  ‘We have left everything and followed you.’  Jesus said, ‘I tell you solemnly, there is no one who has left house, brothers, sisters, father, children or land for my sake and for the sake of the gospel who will not be repaid a hundred times over, houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and land – not without persecution – now in this present time and, in the world to come, eternal life.

‘Many who are first will be last, and the last first.’
