Readings for Mass
First Reading: Second Samuel 11:1-4, 5-10, 13-17
Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 51:3-4, 5-6, 6-7, 10-11
Gospel: Mark 4:26-34
With many such parables he spoke the word to them, as they were able to hear it (NRSV, Mark 4:33).
Let us pray.
Father, you alone are truth and all other truth but shares in your one truth. We who are creatures are called by the Word in Holy Spirit to grow in your truth. And so we go hopefully from understanding to understanding, ever ready to leave behind earlier answers of which we had been so certain. Father, may we always grow in your life and truth, not only in this world but in the world to come, forever and ever.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
