The Letter to the Hebrews   12: 18-19, 21-24

12:18But you have not drawn near to a tangible mountain, or a burning fire, or a whirlwind, or a mist, or a storm,
12:19or the sound of a trumpet, or a voice of words. Those who had experienced these things excused themselves, lest the Word be spoken to them.
12:21And what was seen was so terrible that even Moses said: “I am terrified, and so, I tremble.”
12:22But you have drawn near to mount Zion, and to the city of the living God, to the heavenly Jerusalem, and to the company of many thousands of Angels,
12:23and to the Church of the first-born, those who have been inscribed in the heavens, and to God, the judge of all, and to the spirits of the just made perfect,
12:24and to Jesus, the Mediator of the New Testament, and to a sprinkling of blood, which speaks better than the blood of Abel.


The Holy Gospel According to Mark   6: 7-13

6:7And he called the twelve. And he began to send them out in twos, and he gave them authority over unclean spirits.
6:8And he instructed them not to take anything for the journey, except a staff: no traveling bag, no bread, and no money belt,
6:9but to wear sandals, and not to wear two tunics.
6:10And he said to them: “Whenever you have entered into a house, stay there until you depart from that place.
6:11And whoever will neither receive you, nor listen to you, as you go away from there, shake off the dust from your feet as a testimony against them.”
6:12And going out, they were preaching, so that people would repent.
6:13And they cast out many demons, and they anointed many of the sick with oil and healed them.
