    Isaiah 1:10, 16-20

    10Hear the word of the LORD, you rulers of Sodom! Give ear to the teaching of our God, you people of Gomor'rah! 16Wash yourselves;make yourselves clean;remove the evil of your doings from before my eyes;cease to do evil, 17learn to do good;seek justice, correct oppression;defend the fatherless, plead for the widow. 18"Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool. 19If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land;20But if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword;for the mouth of the LORD has spoken."


    Psalms 50:8-9, 16-17, 21, 23

    8I do not reprove you for your sacrifices;your burnt offerings are continually before me. 9I will accept no bull from your house, nor he-goat from your folds. 16But to the wicked God says: "What right have you to recite my statutes, or take my covenant on your lips? 17For you hate discipline, and you cast my words behind you. 21These things you have done and I have been silent;you thought that I was one like yourself. But now I rebuke you, and lay the charge before you. 23He who brings thanksgiving as his sacrifice honors me;to him who orders his way aright I will show the salvation of God!"


    Matthew 23:1-12

    1Then said Jesus to the crowds and to his disciples, 2"The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses' seat;3so practice and observe whatever they tell you, but not what they do;for they preach, but do not practice. 4They bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men's shoulders;but they themselves will not move them with their finger. 5They do all their deeds to be seen by men;for they make their phylacteries broad and their fringes long, 6and they love the place of honor at feasts and the best seats in the synagogues, 7and salutations in the market places, and being called rabbi by men. 8But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brethren. 9And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven. 10Neither be called masters, for you have one master, the Christ. 11He who is greatest among you shall be your servant;12whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.


    Time of Lent.


    Jer 18:18-20

    The people of Judah and the citizens of Jerusalem said,
    “Come, let us contrive a plot against Jeremiah.
    It will not mean the loss of instruction from the priests,
    nor of counsel from the wise, nor of messages from the prophets.
    And so, let us destroy him by his own tongue;
    let us carefully note his every word.”

    Heed me, O LORD,
    and listen to what my adversaries say.
    Must good be repaid with evil
    that they should dig a pit to take my life?
    Remember that I stood before you
    to speak in their behalf,
    to turn away your wrath from them.


    Ps 31:5-6, 14, 15-16

    R. (17b) Save me, O Lord, in your kindness.
    You will free me from the snare they set for me,
    for you are my refuge.
    Into your hands I commend my spirit;
    you will redeem me, O LORD, O faithful God.
    R. Save me, O Lord, in your kindness.
    I hear the whispers of the crowd, that frighten me from every side,
    as they consult together against me, plotting to take my life.
    R. Save me, O Lord, in your kindness.
    But my trust is in you, O LORD;
    I say, “You are my God.”
    In your hands is my destiny;rescue me
    from the clutches of my enemies and my persecutors.
    R. Save me, O Lord, in your kindness.


    Mt 20:17-28

    As Jesus was going up to Jerusalem,
    he took the Twelve disciples aside by themselves,
    and said to them on the way,
    “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
    to be mocked and scourged and crucified,
    and he will be raised on the third day.”

    Then the mother of the sons of Zebedee approached Jesus with her sons
    and did him homage, wishing to ask him for something.
    He said to her, “What do you wish?”
    She answered him,
    “Command that these two sons of mine sit,
    one at your right and the other at your left, in your kingdom.”
    Jesus said in reply,
    “You do not know what you are asking.
    Can you drink the chalice that I am going to drink?”
    They said to him, “We can.”
    He replied,
    “My chalice you will indeed drink,
    but to sit at my right and at my left,
    this is not mine to give
    but is for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father.”
    When the ten heard this,
    they became indignant at the two brothers.
    But Jesus summoned them and said,
    “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them,
    and the great ones make their authority over them felt.
    But it shall not be so among you.
    Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you shall be your servant;
    whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave.
    Just so, the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve
    and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
