Gospel for the Friday of the 2nd Week in Ordinary Time

Mark 3:13-19

Summary: Jesus, after ascending a mountain, summoned those He chose, forming a group of twelve as Apostles. Their role was to stay close to Him, preach, and cast out demons. The Twelve included Simon (renamed Peter), James and John (Boanerges or 'sons of thunder'), Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, another James, Thaddeus, Simon the Cananaean, and Judas Iscariot, who would eventually betray Him.

Choosing the Apostles

Jesus went up the mountain and summoned those whom he wanted and they came to him. He appointed Twelve, whom he also named Apostles, that they might be with him and he might send them forth to preach and to have authority to drive out demons.

He appointed the Twelve: Simon, whom he named Peter; James, son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James, whom he named Boanerges, that is, sons of thunder; Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus; Thaddeus, Simon the Cananean, and Judas Iscariot who betrayed him.
