    Philippians 4:4-9

    4Rejoice in the Lord always;again I will say, Rejoice. 5Let all men know your forbearance. The Lord is at hand. 6Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. 9What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, do;and the God of peace will be with you.


    Psalms 34:2-11

    1I will bless the LORD at all times;his praise shall continually be in my mouth. 2My soul makes its boast in the LORD;let the afflicted hear and be glad. 3O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together! 4I sought the LORD, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears. 5Look to him, and be radiant;so your faces shall never be ashamed. 6This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. 7The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them. 8O taste and see that the LORD is good! Happy is the man who takes refuge in him! 9O fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him have no want! 10The young lions suffer want and hunger;but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.


    John 17:20-26

    20"I do not pray for these only, but also for those who believe in me through their word, 21that they may all be one;even as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22The glory which thou hast given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, 23I in them and thou in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that thou hast sent me and hast loved them even as thou hast loved me. 24Father, I desire that they also, whom thou hast given me, may be with me where I am, to behold my glory which thou hast given me in thy love for me before the foundation of the world. 25O righteous Father, the world has not known thee, but I have known thee;and these know that thou hast sent me. 26I made known to them thy name, and I will make it known, that the love with which thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them."

    Sir 36:1, 4-5a, 10-17

    Come to our aid, O God of the universe,
    look upon us, show us the light of your mercies,
    and put all the nations in dread of you!
    Thus they will know, as we know,
    that there is no God but you, O Lord.

    Give new signs and work new wonders.

    Gather all the tribes of Jacob,
    that they may inherit the land as of old,
    Show mercy to the people called by your name;
    Israel, whom you named your firstborn.
    Take pity on your holy city,
    Jerusalem, your dwelling place.
    Fill Zion with your majesty,
    your temple with your glory.

    Give evidence of your deeds of old;
    fulfill the prophecies spoken in your name,
    Reward those who have hoped in you,
    and let your prophets be proved true.
    Hear the prayer of your servants,
    for you are ever gracious to your people;
    and lead us in the way of justice.
    Thus it will be known to the very ends of the earth
    that you are the eternal God.


    PS 79:8, 9, 11 and 13

    R. (Sirach 36:1b) Show us, O Lord, the light of your kindness.
    Remember not against us the iniquities of the past;
    may your compassion quickly come to us,
    for we are brought very low.
    R. Show us, O Lord, the light of your kindness.
    Help us, O God our savior,
    because of the glory of your name;
    Deliver us and pardon our sins
    for your name’s sake.
    R. Show us, O Lord, the light of your kindness.
    Let the prisoners’ sighing come before you;
    with your great power free those doomed to death.
    Then we, your people and the sheep of your pasture,
    will give thanks to you forever;
    through all generations we will declare your praise.
    R. Show us, O Lord, the light of your kindness.


    Mk 10:32-45

    The disciples were on the way, going up to Jerusalem,
    and Jesus went ahead of them.
    They were amazed, and those who followed were afraid.
    Taking the Twelve aside again, he began to tell them
    what was going to happen to him.
    "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man
    will be handed over to the chief priests and the scribes,
    and they will condemn him to death
    and hand him over to the Gentiles who will mock him,
    spit upon him, scourge him, and put him to death,
    but after three days he will rise."

    Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee,
    came to Jesus and said to him,
    "Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you."
    He replied, "What do you wish me to do for you?"
    They answered him,
    "Grant that in your glory
    we may sit one at your right and the other at your left."
    Jesus said to them, "You do not know what you are asking.
    Can you drink the chalice that I drink
    or be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized?"
    They said to him, "We can."
    Jesus said to them, "The chalice that I drink, you will drink,
    and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you will be baptized;
    but to sit at my right or at my left is not mine to give
    but is for those for whom it has been prepared."
    When the ten heard this, they became indignant at James and John.
    Jesus summoned them and said to them,
    "You know that those who are recognized as rulers over the Gentiles
    lord it over them,
    and their great ones make their authority over them felt.
    But it shall not be so among you.
    Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you will be your servant;
    whoever wishes to be first among you will be the slave of all.
    For the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve
    and to give his life as a ransom for many."
