Today’s Responsorial Psalm…

Psalms 95:6-7c, 8-9, 10-11 (https://bible.usccb.org/bible/psalms/95?6)

R. (8) If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.


Come, let us bow down in worship;
 let us kneel before the LORD who made us.
For he is our God,
 and we are the people he shepherds, the flock he guides.

R. If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.


Oh, that today you would hear his voice:
 “Harden not your hearts as at Meribah,
 as in the day of Massah in the desert,
Where your fathers tempted me;
 they tested me though they had seen my works.”

R. If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.


Forty years I was wearied of that generation;
 I said: “This people’s heart goes astray,
 they do not know my ways.”
Therefore I swore in my anger:
 “They shall never enter my rest.”

R. If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.

Today’s readings…

Reading 1
Heb 3:7-14 (https://bible.usccb.org/bible/hebrews/3?7)

The Holy Spirit says:
 Oh, that today you would hear his voice,
 “Harden not your hearts as at the rebellion
 in the day of testing in the desert,
 where your ancestors tested and tried me
 and saw my works for forty years.
 Because of this I was provoked with that generation
 and I said, ‘They have always been of erring heart,
 and they do not know my ways.’
 As I swore in my wrath,
 ‘They shall not enter into my rest.’”
Take care, brothers and sisters,
that none of you may have an evil and unfaithful heart,
so as to forsake the living God.
Encourage yourselves daily while it is still “today,”
so that none of you may grow hardened by the deceit of sin.
We have become partners of Christ
if only we hold the
beginning of the reality firm until the end.

Gospel
Mk 1:40-45 (https://bible.usccb.org/bible/mk/1?40#49001040)

A leper came to him and kneeling down begged him and said,
“If you wish, you can make me clean.”
Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand,
touched the leper, and said to him,
“I do will it. Be made clean.”
The leprosy left him immediately, and he was made clean.
Then, warning him sternly, he dismissed him at once.
Then he said to him, “See that you tell no one anything,
but go, show yourself to the priest
and offer for your cleansing what Moses prescribed;
that will be proof for them.”
The man went away and began to publicize the whole matter.
He spread the report abroad
so that it was impossible for Jesus to enter a town openly.
He remained outside in deserted places,
and people kept coming to him from everywhere.

Formed: Persevere in Faith

There is no such thing as "once saved, always saved." While you have been given the gift of salvation, you still have to hold onto it. Today, reflect on how you can continue to hold on and persevere in your faith.

Be Made Clean

My prayer…

Dear God, my Abba Father, Lord Jesus my Savior, Holy Spirit within me.
My divine Lord, help me to see that which is within me that most harms my relationships with others. Help me to see that which causes isolation and hurt. Give me the humility to see this and the trust I need to turn to You to confess it and seek Your healing. You and You alone can free me from my sin, so I turn to You in confidence and surrender. With faith, I also await Your healing words, “I do will it. Be made clean.”

Yes Lord, I was selfish, weak and irresponsible. A foolish and waste steward. Confessing my sins to You daily, I am still haunted, and often reminded through the consequences I have put me and mine in today. Help me. You know me. You know each of mine. While there will always be scars for what I have done wrong and failed to do right. I fight to be ready to make things right. Help me. Hear my cries and prayers for me and mine.
Thank You for walking with us. Blessing and protecting us. Teaching and guiding us.

Hear our prayers.
Remembering all of mine that have passed on to You. Mom, Dub, Dad, Abuelita and Abuelito, Titi Evelyn and Fernando, Nana and Coco, Titi Lisa and Manuel, Louie, Rosa, Titi Mary, Harold, Titi Gladys, Titi Nelly, Abuelo Angel, Abuela, David and David, Peggy, and Terri, all those not listed but often remembered.

Jesus I trust in You! Hear my prayer.
Not my will, but Yours Lord God.
Jesus, Mary, I love You, save souls.
In Jesus name I pray.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Apostles (Nicene) Creed

I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.
Amen.

Lords Prayer

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Amen.

Hail Mary

Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed are thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus.
Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

Glory be to the Father

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen.

O my Jesus

O my Jesus, have mercy on us. Forgive us our sins. Save us from the fires of hell. Take all souls into heaven, especially, those most in need of thy mercy.
Amen.

Salve Regina (Hail Holy Queen)

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus, O merciful, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!
Amen.

Closing Prayer

O God, whose only begotten Son, by His life, death, and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life. Grant, we beseech Thee, that by meditating on these mysteries of the most holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
