Jon 3:1-5, 10/1 Cor 7:29-31/Mk 1:14-20 

1 Corinthians 7:29-31 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE) 

29 I mean, brothers and sisters,[a] the appointed time has grown short; from now on, let even those who have wives be as though they had none, 30 and those who mourn as though they were not mourning, and those who rejoice as though they were not rejoicing, and those who buy as though they had no possessions, 31 and those who deal with the world as though they had no dealings with it. For the present form of this world is passing away.

15 And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the good news[a] to the whole creation. 16 The one who believes and is baptized will be saved; but the one who does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: by using my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up snakes in their hands,[b] and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

31 His mother and his brothers arrived.

Heb 10:11-18/Mk 4:1-20 

Hebrews 10:11-18 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE) 

11 [a]Every priest stands daily at his ministry, offering frequently those same sacrifices that can never take away sins. 12 But this one offered one sacrifice for sins, and took his seat forever at the right hand of God; 13 [b]now he waits until his enemies are made his footstool. 14 For by one offering he has made perfect forever those who are being consecrated. 15 [c]The holy Spirit also testifies to us, for after saying: 

16 “This is the covenant I will establish with them after those days, says the Lord: 
    ‘I will put my laws in their hearts, 
    and I will write them upon their minds,’” 

17 he also says:[d] 

“Their sins and their evildoing 
    I will remember no more.” 

18 Where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer offering for sin.

Heb 10:19-25/Mk 4:21-25  

Mark 4:21-25 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE) 

21 He said to them, “Is a lamp brought in to be placed under a bushel basket or under a bed, and not to be placed on a lampstand? 22 For there is nothing hidden except to be made visible; nothing is secret except to come to light. 23 Anyone who has ears to hear ought to hear.” 24 He also told them, “Take care what you hear. The measure with which you measure will be measured out to you, and still more will be given to you. 25 To the one who has, more will be given; from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.”

Heb 10:32-39/Mk 4:26-34 

Hebrews 10:32-39 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE) 
32 But recall those earlier days when, after you had been enlightened, you endured a hard struggle with sufferings, 33 sometimes being publicly exposed to abuse and persecution, and sometimes being partners with those so treated. 34 For you had compassion for those who were in prison, and you cheerfully accepted the plundering of your possessions, knowing that you yourselves possessed something better and more lasting. 35 Do not, therefore, abandon that confidence of yours; it brings a great reward. 36 For you need endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised. 37 For yet “in a very little while, the one who is coming will come and will not delay; 38 but my righteous one will live by faith. My soul takes no pleasure in anyone who shrinks back.” 39 But we are not among those who shrink back and so are lost, but among those who have faith and so are saved.

Mark 4:35-41 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE) 

35 On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, “Let us go across to the other side.” 36 And leaving the crowd behind, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. Other boats were with him. 37 A great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that the boat was already being swamped. 38 But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they woke him up and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” 39 He woke up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” Then the wind ceased, and there was a dead calm. 40 He said to them, “Why are you afraid? Have you still no faith?” 41 And they were filled with great awe and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?”
