First Reading: Gen 4, 1-15.25
Psalm: 49 (50), 1 & 8.16bc-17.20-21

Gospel: Mk 8, 11-13

The Pharisees came forward and began to argue with Jesus, seeking from him a sign from heaven to test him. He sighed from the depth of his spirit and said, “Why does this generation seek a sign? Amen, I say to you, no sign will be given to this generation.” Then he left them, got into the boat again, and went off to the other shore.
