Perpetua and Felicitas, Martyrs


First Reading: Gen. 1:20-2:3


 20And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

 21And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

 22And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

 23And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

 24And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

 25And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

 26And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

 27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

 28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

 29And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

 30And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

 31And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

 1Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

 2And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

 3And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.



Second Reading: Mk. 1:14-28


 14Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,

 15And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

 16Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.

 17And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.

 18And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him.

 19And when he had gone a little farther thence, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the ship mending their nets.

 20And straightway he called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the ship with the hired servants, and went after him.

 21And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught.

 22And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.

 23And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,

 24Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God.

 25And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him.

 26And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him.

 27And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.

 28And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee.
