SECOND SUNDAY OF THE GREAT FAST

Gospel: Mark 2:1-12

Jesus Heals a Paralyzed Man

 

          When Jesus returned some days later to Capernaum, the word quickly spread that he was at home. Such large multitudes gathered there that no longer was any space available, even in front of the door, and he was preaching the word to them.

 

          Some people arrived, bringing to him a man who was paralyzed, carried by four men. Since they were unable to bring him near Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above him and then lowered the bed on which the paralyzed man was lying.

 

          On perceiving their faith, Jesus said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Now some scribes were sitting there, thinking to themselves: “How can this man say such things? He is blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?”

 

          Jesus was able immediately to discern in his spirit what they were thinking, and he asked, “Why do you entertain such thoughts in your hearts? Which is easier: to say to the paralyzed man, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say: ‘Stand up, take your mat, and walk’? But that you may come to realize that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—he said to the paralyzed man— “I say to you, stand up, take your bed, and go to your home.” The man stood up, immediately picked up his bed, and went off in full view of all of them. The onlookers were all astonished and they glorified God, saying, “We have never before witnessed anything like this.”

 

Prayer for the Forgiveness of Sins

 

O God, be merciful to me a sinner.
O God, cleanse me of my sins

and have mercy on me.
O Lord, forgive me;

for I have sinned without number.

Amen.

Annunciation of the Theotokos

 

Entrance thru trees and sun2.jpg

In the beginning

God created heaven and earth.

Now the earth was a formless void, there was darkness over the deep, with a divine wind sweeping over the waters.

God said, 'Let there be light,'

and there was light.

God saw that light was good, and God divided light from darkness.

God called light 'day',

and darkness he called 'night'.

Evening came and

morning came: the first day.

Genesis 1: 1 - 5
