Holy Gospel: Mark 10:23-31
P: The Holy Gospel according to Mark.
C: Glory be to Thee, O Lord
And Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How difficult it will be for those
who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God!” And the disciples were amazed at
his words. But Jesus said to them again, “Children, how difficult it is to enter the
kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a
rich person to enter the kingdom of God.” And they were exceedingly astonished,
and said to him, “Then who can be saved?” Jesus looked at them and said, “With
man it is impossible, but not with God. For all things are possible with God.” Peter
began to say to him, “See, we have left everything and followed you.” Jesus said,
“Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or
mother or father or children or lands, for my sake and for the gospel, who will not
receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers
and children and lands, with persecutions, and in the age to come eternal life. But
many who are first will be last, and the last first.”
P: This is the Gospel of the Lord.
C: Praise be to Thee, O Christ.
