Our Savior Jesus Christ destroyed death and brought life to light through the Gospel - Daily Bible Readings October 25, 2015

1ST READING
 
Jeremiah affirmed that God is merciful and that He wants to lead us back to Himself. Let us rejoice and give praise to God! This is at the heart of the life of a disciple. Paul invites us to rejoice constantly in the goodness of God and to praise Him at all times. Remember that everything we have has been given to us by God out of His goodness.
 
Jeremiah 31:7-9
Thus says the Lord: Shout with joy for Jacob, exult at the head of the nations; proclaim your praise and say: The Lord has delivered his people, the remnant of Israel. 8Behold, I will bring them back from the land of the north; I will gather them from the ends of the world, with the blind and the lame in their midst, the mothers and those with child; they shall return as an immense throng. They departed in tears, but I will console them andguide them; I will lead them to brooks of water, on a level road, so that none shall stumble. For I am a father to Israel, Ephraim is my first-born.

Psalm 126:1-2, 2-3, 4-5, 6
R: The Lord has done great things for us; we are filled with joy.
When the Lord brought back the captives of Zion, we were like men dreaming. Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with rejoicing. (R) Then they said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.” The Lord has done great things for us; we are glad indeed. (R) Restore our fortunes, O Lord, like the torrents in the southern desert. Those that sow in tears shall reap rejoicing. (R)  Although they go forth weeping, carrying the seed to be sown, they shall come back rejoicing, carrying their sheaves. (R)
 
2ND READING
 
 
Melchizedek is the mysterious priest of the Old Testament to whom Abraham paid a tithe as an offering. He then disappeared, only to reappear a couple of times just as mysteriously. We know little about Melchizedek, but he symbolizes the enduring and eternal nature of priesthood. Let the Holy Spirit deepen our understanding of His role as we seek to follow God’s will for our lives.
 
Hebrews 5:1-6
Brothers and sisters: Every high priest is taken from among men and made their representative before God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. He is able to deal patiently with the ignorant and erring, for he himself is beset by weakness and so, for this reason, must make sin offerings for himself as well as for the people. No one takes this honor upon himself but only when called by God, just as Aaron was. In the same way, it was not Christ who glorified himself in becoming high priest, but rather the one who said to him: You are my son: this day I have begotten you”; just as he says in another place: You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.”
 
GOSPEL
 
Jesus desires to heal all people. There are some who will be healed at the hands of doctors and medical science. Others will heal naturally and others will be healed by miracles. Some will not be healed until the Second Coming. How do we explain this? We do not know the answer because nobody knows the mind of the Lord.
 
GOSPEL ACCLAMATION
Our Savior Jesus Christ destroyed death and brought life to light through the Gospel.
 
Mark 10:46-52
46 As Jesus was leaving Jericho with his disciples and a sizable crowd, Bartimaeus, a blind man, the son of Timaeus, sat by the roadside begging. 47 On hearing that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, son of David, have pity on me.” 48 And many rebuked him, telling him to be silent. But he kept calling out all the more, “Son of David, have pity on me.” 49 Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called the blind man, saying to him, “Take courage; get up, Jesus is calling you.”50 He threw aside his cloak, sprang up, and came to Jesus.51 Jesus said to him in reply, “What do you want me to do for you?” The blind man replied to him, “Master, I want to see.” 52 Jesus told him, “Go your way; your faith has saved you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way.
 
think: Jesus desires to heal all people.
