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

Mark 3:13-19

Summary: Jesus ascended a mountain and called those He chose, forming a group of twelve, designated as Apostles. Their purpose was to stay with Him, preach, and have authority over demons. The appointed Twelve included Simon (Peter), James and John (Boanerges), Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James, Thaddeus, Simon the Cananean, and Judas Iscariot, the one who later betrayed Him.

The Twelve 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.
