Readings of the Day: Memorial of Saint Boniface, Bishop and Martyr

Reading for the Day
2 Timothy 3:10-17

  • 11 my persecutions, my sufferings, what befell me at Antioch, at Ico'nium, and at Lystra, what persecutions I endured; yet from them all the Lord rescued me.
  • 12 Indeed all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,
  • 13 while evil men and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceivers and deceived.
  • 14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it
  • 15 and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings which are able to instruct you for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
  • 16 All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,
  • 17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.

Gospel for the Day
Mark 12:35-37

  • 35 And as Jesus taught in the temple, he said, "How can the scribes say that the Christ is the son of David?
  • 36 David himself, inspired by the Holy Spirit, declared, `The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at my right hand, till I put thy enemies under thy feet.'
  • 37 David himself calls him Lord; so how is he his son?" And the great throng heard him gladly.
