6. THE GOSPEL OF THE DAY

Gospel for the Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

If you wish, play the video of the reading from St Mark’s Gospel or read it yourself.

Gospel Sun 16 in OT

A reading from the Gospel according to Mark

Mark 6:30-34 (NRSV)

The apostles gathered around Jesus, and told him all that they had done and taught. He said to them, “Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while.” For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat. And they went away in the boat to a deserted place by themselves. Now many saw them going and recognized them, and they hurried there on foot from all the towns and arrived ahead of them. As he went ashore, he saw a great crowd; and he had compassion for them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and he began to teach them many things.

Whether you have read or heard it, you might like to acclaim the Word, saying:

This is the Gospel of the Lord – Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ.
