Ps 51

Mk 4:35-41



35On that day, as evening drew on, Jesus said to his disciples: “Let us cross to the other side.” 36Leaving the crowd, they took him with them in the boat just as he was. And other boats were with him. 37A violent squall came up and waves were breaking over the boat, so that it was already lling up. 38Jesus was in the stern, asleep on a cushion.They woke him and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” 39He woke up, rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Quiet! Be still!” The wind ceased and there was great calm. 40Then he asked them, “Why are you terri ed? Do you not yet have faith?” 41They were lled with great awe and said to one another,“Who then is this whom even wind and sea obey?”

St. Gildas the Wise

Friday of the Third Week

2 Sm 11:1-4a, 5-10a, 13-17

Ps 51

Mk 4:26-34



26Jesus 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 27and would sleep and rise night and day and the seed would sprout and grow, he knows not how. 28Of its own accord the land yields fruit, rst the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear. 29And when the grain is ripe, he wields the sickle at once, for the harvest has come.”

30He said,“To what shall we compare the Kingdom of God, or what parable can we use for it? 31It is like a mustard seed that, when it is sown in the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on the earth. 32But 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.” 33With many such parables he spoke the word to them as they were able to understand it. 34Without parables he did not speak to them, but to his own disciples he explained everything in private.

St. Thomas Aquinas, priest and doctor (M)

2 Sm 7:18-19, 24-29

Ps 132

Mk 4:21-25



21Jesus said to his disciples,“Is a lamp brought in to be placed under a bushel basket or under a bed, and not to be placed on a lampstand? 22For there is nothing hidden except to be made visible; nothing is secret except to come to light. 23Anyone who has ears to hear ought to hear.” 24He also told them,“Take care what you hear.The measure with which you measure will be measured out to you, and still more will be given to you. 25To the one who has, more will be given; from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.”
