LEITURA DO DIA

Primeira Leitura

Leitura do Livro do Gênesis (Gn 9,8-15)

Disse Deus a Noé e a seus filhos: “Eis que vou estabelecer minha aliança convosco e com vossa descendência, 10com todos os seres vivos que estão convosco: aves, animais domésticos e selvagens, enfim, com todos os animais da terra, que saíram convosco da arca. Estabeleço convosco a minha aliança: nunca mais nenhuma criatura será exterminada pelas águas do dilúvio, e não haverá mais dilúvio para devastar a terra”. E Deus disse: “Este é o sinal da aliança que coloco entre mim e vós, e todos os seres vivos que estão convosco, por todas as gerações futuras: ponho meu arco nas nuvens como sinal de aliança entre mim e a terra. Quando eu reunir as nuvens sobre a terra, aparecerá meu arco nas nuvens. Então eu me lembrarei de minha aliança convosco e com todas as espécies de seres vivos. E não tornará mais a haver dilúvio que faça perecer nas suas águas toda criatura”.

 

Segunda leitura

Leitura da Primeira Carta de São Pedro (1Pd 3,18-22)

Caríssimos: Cristo morreu, uma vez por todas, por causa dos pecados, o justo pelos injustos, a fim de nos conduzir a Deus. Sofreu a morte, na sua existência humana, mas recebeu nova vida pelo Espírito. No Espírito, ele foi também pregar aos espíritos na prisão, a saber, aos que foram desobedientes antigamente, quando Deus usava de longanimidade, nos dias em que Noé construía a arca. Nesta arca, umas poucas pessoas – oito – foram salvas por meio da água. À arca corresponde o batismo, que hoje é a vossa salvação. Pois o batismo não serve para limpar o corpo da imundície, mas é um pedido a Deus para obter uma boa consciência, em virtude da ressurreição de Jesus Cristo. Ele subiu ao céu e está à direita de Deus, submetendo-se a ele anjos, dominações e potestades.

EVANGELHO DO DIA

PROCLAMAÇÃO do Evangelho de Jesus Cristo + segundo Marcos (Mc 1,12-15)

Naquele tempo, o Espírito levou Jesus para o deserto. E ele ficou no deserto durante quarenta dias, e aí foi tentado por Satanás. Vivia entre os animais selvagens, e os anjos o serviam. Depois que João Batista foi preso, Jesus foi para a Galileia, pregando o Evangelho de Deus e dizendo: “O tempo já se completou e o Reino de Deus está próximo. Convertei-vos e crede no Evangelho!”

WORD OF THE DAY

21/02/2021

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)
