  • First Reading: Isaiah Is 42:1-7

    1 Behold my servant, I will uphold him: my elect, my soul delighteth in him: I have given my spirit upon him, he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
    2 He shall not cry, nor have respect to person, neither shall his voice be heard abroad.
    3 The bruised reed he shall not break, and smoking flax he shall not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.
    4 He shall not be sad, nor troublesome, till he set judgment in the earth: and the islands shall wait for his law.
    5 Thus saith the Lord God that created the heavens, and stretched them out: that established the earth, and the things that spring out of it: that giveth breath to the people upon it, and spirit to them that tread thereon.
    6 I the Lord have called thee in justice, and taken thee by the hand, and preserved thee. And I have given thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles:
    7 That thou mightest open the eyes of the blind, and bring forth the prisoner out of prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.

  • Psalm: Psalms 27:1, 2, 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 Whilst the wicked draw near against me, to eat my flesh. My enemies that trouble me, have themselves been weakened, and have fallen.
    3 If armies in camp should stand together against me, my heart shall not fear. If a battle should rise up against me, in this will I be confident.
    13 I believe to see the good things of the Lord in the land of the living.
    14 Expect the Lord, do manfully, and let thy heart take courage, and wait thou for the Lord. 

  • Gospel: John Jn 12:1-11

    1 Jesus therefore, six days before the pasch, came to Bethania, where Lazarus had been dead, whom Jesus raised to life.
    2 And they made him a supper there: and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that were at table with him.
    3 Mary therefore took a pound of ointment of right spikenard, of great price, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair; and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.
    4 Then one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, he that was about to betray him, said:
    5 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?
    6 Now he said this, not because he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and having the purse, carried the things that were put therein.
    7 Jesus therefore said: Let her alone, that she may keep it against the day of my burial.
    8 For the poor you have always with you; but me you have not always.
    9 A great multitude therefore of the Jews knew that he was there; and they came, not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead.
    10 But the chief priests thought to kill Lazarus also:
    11 Because many of the Jews, by reason of him, went away, and believed in Jesus.
