Reading of the Gospel

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia

Yesterday I was buried with Christ,
today I rise with you who are risen.
With you I was crucified;
remember me, Lord, in your kingdom.

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia

Mark 7, 1-8.14-15.21-23

The Pharisees and some of the scribes who had come from Jerusalem gathered round him,

and they noticed that some of his disciples were eating with unclean hands, that is, without washing them.

For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, keep the tradition of the elders and never eat without washing their arms as far as the elbow;

and on returning from the market place they never eat without first sprinkling themselves. There are also many other observances which have been handed down to them to keep, concerning the washing of cups and pots and bronze dishes.

So the Pharisees and scribes asked him, 'Why do your disciples not respect the tradition of the elders but eat their food with unclean hands?'

He answered, 'How rightly Isaiah prophesied about you hypocrites in the passage of scripture: This people honours me only with lip-service, while their hearts are far from me.

Their reverence of me is worthless; the lessons they teach are nothing but human commandments.

You put aside the commandment of God to observe human traditions.'

He called the people to him again and said, 'Listen to me, all of you, and understand.

Nothing that goes into someone from outside can make that person unclean; it is the things that come out of someone that make that person unclean.

For it is from within, from the heart, that evil intentions emerge: fornication, theft, murder,

adultery, avarice, malice, deceit, indecency, envy, slander, pride, folly.

All these evil things come from within and make a person unclean.'

 

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia

Yesterday I was buried with Christ,
today I rise with you who are risen.
With you I was crucified;
remember me, Lord, in your kingdom.

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia
