  • First Reading: Isaiah 42:1-7

    1 . Behold my servant, I will uphold him, my elect, with him my soul is well-pleased. I have sent my Spirit upon him. He will offer judgment to the nations.
    2 . He will not cry out, and he will not show favoritism to anyone; neither will his voice be heard abroad.
    3 . The bruised reed he will not break, and the smoldering wick he will not extinguish. He will lead forth judgment unto truth.
    4 . He will not be saddened or troubled, until he establishes judgment on earth. And the islands will await his law.
    5 . Thus says the Lord God, who created the heavens and expanded it, who formed the earth and all that springs from it, who gives breath to the people in it, and spirit to those walking on it.
    6 . I, the Lord, have called you in justice, and I have taken your hand and preserved you. And I have presented you as a covenant of the people, as a light to the Gentiles,
    7 . so that you may open the eyes of the blind, and lead out the prisoner from confinement and those sitting in darkness from the house of incarceration.

  • Psalm: Psalms 27:1-3,13-14

    1 . The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? The Lord is the protector of my life, of whom shall I be afraid?
    2 . Meanwhile, the guilty draw near to me, so as to eat my flesh. Those who trouble me, my enemies, have themselves been weakened and have fallen.
    3 . If entrenched armies were to stand together against me, my heart would not fear. If a battle were to rise up against me, I would have hope in this.
    13 . I believe that I shall see the good things of the Lord in the land of the living.
    14 . Wait for the Lord, act manfully; and let your heart be strengthened, and remain with the Lord.

  • Gospel: John 12:1-11

    1 . Then six days before the Passover, Jesus went to Bethania, where Lazarus had died, whom Jesus raised up.
    2 . And they made a dinner for him there. And Martha was ministering. And truly, Lazarus was one of those who were sitting at table with him.
    3 . And then Mary took twelve ounces of pure spikenard ointment, very precious, and she anointed the feet of Jesus, and she wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the ointment.
    4 . Then one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, who was soon to betray him, said,
    5 . “Why was this ointment not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the needy?”
    6 . Now he said this, not out of concern for the needy, but because he was a thief and, since he held the purse, he used to carry what was put into it.
    7 . But Jesus said: “Permit her, so that she may keep it against the day of my burial.
    8 . For the poor, you have with you always. But me, you do always not have.”
    9 . Now a great multitude of the Jews knew that he was in that place, and so they came, not so much because of Jesus, but so that they might see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead.
    10 . And the leaders of the priests planned to put Lazarus to death also.
    11 . For many of the Jews, because of him, were going away and were believing in Jesus.
