LETTURA DEL GIORNO

PRIMERA LECTURA
Pacto de Dios con Noé liberado del diluvio de las aguas.


Lectura del libro del Génesis 9, 8-15

Dios dijo a Noé y a sus hijos:

«Yo establezco mi alianza con vosotros y con vuestros descendientes, con todos los animales que os acompañan, aves, ganado y fieras, con todos los que salieron del arca y ahora viven en la tierra. Establezco, pues, mi alianza con vosotros: el diluvio no volverá a destruir criatura alguna ni habrá otro diluvio que devaste la tierra».

Y Dios añadió:

«Esta es la señal de la alianza que establezco con vosotros y con todo lo que vive con vosotros, para todas las generaciones: pondré mi arco en el cielo, como señal de mi alianza con la tierra. Cuando traiga nubes sobre la tierra, aparecerá en las nubes el arco, y recordaré mi alianza con vosotros y con todos los animales, y el diluvio no volverá a destruir a los vivientes».

Palabra de Dios.

Sal 24, 4bc-5ab. 6-7bc. 8-9
R. Tus sendas, Señor, son misericordia y lealtad para los que guardan tu alianza.

Señor, enséñame tus caminos,
instrúyeme en tus sendas:
haz que camine con lealtad;
enséñame, porque tú eres mi Dios y Salvador. R.

R. Tus sendas, Señor, son misericordia y lealtad para los que guardan tu alianza.

Recuerda, Señor, que tu ternura
y tu misericordia son eternas;
acuérdate de mí con misericordia,
por tu bondad, Señor. R.

R. Tus sendas, Señor, son misericordia y lealtad para los que guardan tu alianza.

El Señor es bueno y es recto,
y enseña el camino a los pecadores;
hace caminar a los humildes con rectitud,
enseña su camino a los humildes. R.

R. Tus sendas, Señor, son misericordia y lealtad para los que guardan tu alianza.

 

SEGUNDA LECTURA
El bautismo que actualmente os está salvando.


Lectura de la primera carta del apóstol san Pedro 3, 18-22

Queridos hermanos:

Cristo sufrió su pasión, de una vez para siempre por los pecados, el justo por los injustos, para conduciros a Dios.

Muerto en la carne pero vivificado en el Espíritu; en el espíritu fue a predicar incluso a los espíritus en prisión, a los desobedientes en otro tiempo, cuando la paciencia de Dios aguardaba, en los días de Noé, a que se construyera el arca, para que unos pocos, es decir, ocho personas, se salvaran por medio del agua.

Aquello era también un símbolo del bautismo que actualmente os está salvando, que no es purificación de una mancha física, sino petición a Dios de una buena conciencia, por la resurrección de Jesucristo, el cual fue al cielo, está sentado a la derecha de Dios y tiene a su disposición ángeles, potestades y poderes.

Palabra de Dios.

Versículo Mt 4, 4b

No solo de pan vive el hombre,
sino de toda palabra que sale de la boca de Dios

EVANGELIO
Era tentado por Satanás, y los ángeles le servían.


Lectura del santo Evangelio según san Marcos 1, 12-15

En aquel tiempo, el Espíritu empujó a Jesús al desierto.

Se quedó en el desierto cuarenta días, siendo tentado por Satanás; vivía con las fieras y los ángeles lo servían.

Después de que Juan, fue entregado, Jesús se marchó a Galilea a proclamar el Evangelio de Dios; decía:

«Se ha cumplido el tiempo y está cerca el reino de Dios. Convertíos y creed en el Evangelio».

Palabra del Señor.

WORD OF THE DAY

READING OF THE DAY

First reading from the Book of Genesis
Gn 9:8-15

God said to Noah and to his sons with him:
“See, I am now establishing my covenant with you
and your descendants after you
and with every living creature that was with you:
all the birds, and the various tame and wild animals
that were with you and came out of the ark.
I will establish my covenant with you,
that never again shall all bodily creatures be destroyed
by the waters of a flood;
there shall not be another flood to devastate the earth.”
God added:
“This is the sign that I am giving for all ages to come,
of the covenant between me and you
and every living creature with you:
I set my bow in the clouds to serve as a sign
of the covenant between me and the earth.
When I bring clouds over the earth,
and the bow appears in the clouds,
I will recall the covenant I have made
between me and you and all living beings,
so that the waters shall never again become a flood
to destroy all mortal beings.”

Second reading from the First Letter of St. Peter


1 Pt 3:18-22

Beloved:
Christ suffered for sins once,
the righteous for the sake of the unrighteous,
that he might lead you to God.
Put to death in the flesh,
he was brought to life in the Spirit.
In it he also went to preach to the spirits in prison,
who had once been disobedient
while God patiently waited in the days of Noah
during the building of the ark,
in which a few persons, eight in all,
were saved through water.
This prefigured baptism, which saves you now.
It is not a removal of dirt from the body
but an appeal to God for a clear conscience,
through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,
who has gone into heaven
and is at the right hand of God,
with angels, authorities, and powers subject to him.

GOSPEL OF THE DAY

From the Gospel according to Mark


Mk 1:12-15

The Spirit drove Jesus out into the desert,
and he remained in the desert for forty days,
tempted by Satan.
He was among wild beasts,
and the angels ministered to him.

After John had been arrested,
Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God:
“This is the time of fulfillment.
The kingdom of God is at hand.
Repent, and believe in the gospel.”

WORDS OF THE HOLY FATHER

On this First Sunday of Lent, the Gospel recalls the themes of temptation, conversion and the Good News. Mark the Evangelist writes: “The Spirit immediately drove Jesus out into the wilderness. And he was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan” (cf. Mk 1:12-13). Jesus goes into the desert to prepare Himself for His mission in the world. For us too, Lent is a time of spiritual “contest”, of spiritual struggle: we are called to confront the Evil One through prayer in order to be able, with God’s help, to overcome him in our daily life. We know that evil unfortunately is at work in our existence and around us, where there is violence, rejection of the other, closure, war, injustice. These are all works of the Evil One. Immediately following the temptations in the desert, Jesus begins to preach the Gospel, that is, the Good News. And this Good News demands our conversion — every single day — and the Church invites us to pray for this. In fact, we are never sufficiently orientated towards God and we must continually direct our minds and our hearts towards Him. (Angelus, 18 February 2018)
