James 5: 13- 20

5:13 Is any of you sad? Let him pray. Is he even-tempered? Let him sing psalms.
5:14 Is anyone ill among you? Let him bring in the priests of the Church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.
5:15 And a prayer of faith will save the infirm, and the Lord will alleviate him. And if he has sins, these will be forgiven him.
5:16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be saved. For the unremitting prayer of a just person prevails over many things.
5:17 Elijah was a mortal man like us, and in prayer he prayed that it would not rain upon the earth. And it did not rain for three years and six months.
5:18 And he prayed again. And the heavens gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.
5:19 My brothers, if anyone of you strays from the truth, and if someone converts him,
5:20 he ought to know that whoever causes a sinner to be converted from the error of his ways will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.

Mark 10: 13- 16

10:13 And they brought to him the little children, so that he might touch them. But the disciples admonished those who brought them.
10:14 But when Jesus saw this, he took offense, and he said to them: “Allow the little ones to come to me, and do not prohibit them. For of such as these is the kingdom of God.
10:15 Amen I say to you, whoever will not accept the kingdom of God like a little child, will not enter into it.”
10:16 And embracing them, and laying his hands upon them, he blessed them.
