Readings of the day
First Reading: Gen 1, 1-19
Psalm: 103 (104), 1-2a.5-6.10 and 12.24 and 35c
Gospel: Mk 6, 53-56
After making the crossing to the other side of the sea, Jesus and his disciples came to land at Gennesaret and tied up there. As they were leaving the boat, people immediately recognised him. They scurried about the surrounding country and began to bring in the sick on mats to wherever they heard he was.
Whatever villages or towns or countryside he entered, they laid the sick in the marketplaces and begged him that they might touch only the tassel on his cloak; and as many as touched it were healed.
