The First Readings
Is from the First Book of Kings 17:10-16. In this reading, we have one of the many miracles attributed to Elijah, the great prophet who preached in the northern kingdom between 900 and 850 BC.

Second Reading
Is from St. Paul’s Epistle to the Hebrews 9:24-28. This epistle continues with its description of Christ as the high priest of the New Testament and his superiority over those of the Old Testament.

The Gospel
It from the Gospel of St. Mark 12:38-44. Our Lord’s severe condemnation of those Scribes whose exaggerated opinion of their own importance made a mockery of the religion they professed to live, is a serious warning to all his followers not to look for the praise and esteem of their neighbors when doing their good works, but rather to hope for God’s praise and esteem in the future world. In another context, he said to his followers: “Because of practicing your piety before men in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven . . . when you give alms do not let your left hand know what your right is doing … and your Father who sees in secret will reward you .. . when you pray go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father … who sees in secret and will reward you” (Mt. 6: 1-6).
