Holy Gospel: Mark 10:17-22
P: The Holy Gospel according to Mark.
C: Glory be to Thee, O Lord
The Rich Young Man
And 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?” And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good
except God alone. You know the commandments: ‘Do not murder, Do not
commit adultery, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Do not defraud,
Honor your father and mother.'” And he said to him, “Teacher, all these I
have kept from my youth.” And Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said
to him, “You lack one thing: go, sell all that you have and give to the poor,
and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” Disheartened
by the saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.
P: This is the Gospel of the Lord.
C: Praise be to Thee, O Christ.
