  • First Reading: Isaiah 50:4-9a

    4 . The Lord has given me a learned tongue, so that I would know how to uphold with a word, one who has weakened. He rises in the morning, he rises to my ear in the morning, so that I may heed him like a teacher.
    5 . The Lord God has opened my ear. And I do not contradict him. I have not turned back.
    6 . I have given my body to those who strike me, and my cheeks to those who plucked them. I have not averted my face from those who rebuked me and who spit on me.
    7 . The Lord God is my helper. Therefore, I have not been confounded. Therefore, I have set my face like a very hard rock, and I know that I will not be confounded.
    8 . He who justifies me is near. Who will speak against me? Let us stand together. Who is my adversary? Let him approach me.
    9 . Behold, the Lord God is my helper. 

  • Psalm: Psalms 69:8-10,21-22,31,33-34

    8 . For because of you, I have endured reproach; confusion has covered my face.
    9 . I have become a stranger to my brothers and a sojourner to the sons of my mother.
    10 . For zeal for your house has consumed me, and the reproaches of those who reproached you have fallen upon me.
    21 . All those who trouble me are in your sight; my heart has anticipated reproach and misery. And I sought for one who might grieve together with me, but there was no one, and for one who might console me, and I found no one.
    22 . And they gave me gall for my food. And in my thirst, they gave me vinegar to drink.
    31 . I will praise the name of God with a canticle, and I will magnify him with praise.
    33 . Let the poor see and rejoice. Seek God, and your soul will live.
    34 . For the Lord has heard the poor, and he has not despised his prisoners.

  • Gospel: Matthew 26:14-25

    14 . Then one of the twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, went to the leaders of the priests,
    15 . and he said to them, “What are you willing to give me, if I hand him over to you?” So they appointed thirty pieces of silver for him.
    16 . And from then on, he sought an opportunity to betray him.
    17 . Then, on the first day of Unleavened Bread, the disciples approached Jesus, saying, “Where do you want us to prepare for you to eat the Passover?”
    18 . So Jesus said, “Go into the city, to a certain one, and say to him: ‘The Teacher said: My time is near. I am observing the Passover with you, along with my disciples.’ ”
    19 . And the disciples did just as Jesus appointed to them. And they prepared the Passover.
    20 . Then, when evening arrived, he sat at table with his twelve disciples.
    21 . And while they were eating, he said: “Amen I say to you, that one of you is about to betray me.”
    22 . And being greatly saddened, each one of them began to say, “Surely, it is not I, Lord?”
    23 . But he responded by saying: “He who dips his hand with me into the dish, the same will betray me.
    24 . Indeed, the Son of man goes, just as it has been written about him. But woe to that man by whom the Son of man will be betrayed. It would be better for that man if he had not been born.”
    25 . Then Judas, who betrayed him, responded by saying, “Surely, it is not I, Master?” He said to him, “You have said it.”
