1 st  Reading:                                Isaiah 53:4-12
4    Surely   he   has   borne   our   infirmities   and   carried   our
diseases;   yet   we   accounted   him   stricken,   struck   down
by   God,   and   afflicted. 5    But   he   was   wounded   for   our
transgressions,crushed   for   our   iniquities;   upon   him
was   the   punishment   that   made   us   whole,   and   by   his
bruises   we   are   healed. 6    All   we   like   sheep   have   gone
astray;   we   have   all   turned   to   our   own   way,   and   the
Lord   has   laid   on   himthe   iniquity   of   us   all. 7    He   was
oppressed,   and   he   was   afflicted,   yet   he   did   not   open
his   mouth;   like   a   lamb   that   is   led   to   the   slaughter,   and
like   a   sheep   that   before   its   shearers   is   silent,   so   he   did
not   open   his   mouth. 8    By   a   perversion   of   justice   he
was    taken    away.    Who    could    have    imagined    his
future?   For   he   was   cut   off   from   the   land   of   the   living,
stricken   for   the   transgression   of   my   people.     9    They
made   his   grave   with   the   wicked   and   his   tomb *    with
the    rich, * although    he    had    done    no    violence,    and
there   was   no   deceit   in   his   mouth. 10    Yet   it   was   the
will   of   the   Lord   to   crush   him   with   pain. *    When   you
make   his   life   an   offering   for   sin, *    he   shall   see   his
offspring,   and   shall   prolong   his   days;   through   him
the    will    of    the    Lord    shall    prosper. 11 Out    of    his
anguish   he   shall   see   light; *    he   shall   find   satisfaction
through    his    knowledge.    The    righteous    one, *     my
servant,   shall   make   many   righteous,   and   he   shall   bear
their   iniquities. 12    Therefore   I   will   allot   him   a   portion
with   the   great,   and   he   shall   divide   the   spoil   with   the
strong;   because   he   poured   out   himself   to   death,   and
was   numbered   with   the   transgressors;   yet   he   bore   the
sin     of     many,     and     made     intercession     for     the
transgressors. 2nd Reading:                                 Hebrews 5:1-10
1 Every   high   priest   chosen   from   among   mortals   is   put
in   charge   of   things   pertaining   to   God   on   their   behalf,
to   offer   gifts   and   sacrifices   for   sins. 2 He   is   able   to
deal   gently   with   the   ignorant   and   wayward,   since   he
himself   is   subject   to   weakness; 3 and   because   of   this
he   must   offer   sacrifice   for   his   own   sins   as   well   as   for
those   of   the   people. 4 And   one   does   not   presume   to
take   this   honour,   but   takes   it   only   when   called   by
God,    just    as   Aaron    was. 5 So    also    Christ    did    not
glorify   himself   in   becoming   a   high   priest,   but   was
appointed   by   the   one   who   said   to   him,   ‘You   are   my
Son,   today   I   have   begotten   you’; 6 as   he   says   also   in
another   place,   ‘You   are   a   priest   for   ever,   according   to
the   order   of   Melchizedek.’ 7 In   the   days   of   his   flesh,
Jesus *     offered    up    prayers    and    supplications,    with
loud   cries   and   tears,   to   the   one   who   was   able   to   save
him   from   death,   and   he   was   heard   because   of   his
reverent    submission. 8 Although    he    was    a    Son,    he
learned    obedience    through    what    he    suffered; 9 and
having   been   made   perfect,   he   became   the   source   of
eternal   salvation   for   all   who   obey   him, 10 having   been
designated    by    God    a    high    priest    according    to    the
order of Melchizedek.
Gospel:                                                     Mark 10:35-45
The Request of James and John
35 James    and    John,    the    sons    of    Zebedee,    came
forward   to   him   and   said   to   him,   ‘Teacher,   we   want
you   to   do   for   us   whatever   we   ask   of   you.’ 36 And   he
said   to   them,   ‘What   is   it   you   want   me   to   do   for
you?’ 37 And   they   said   to   him,   ‘Grant   us   to   sit,   one   at
your   right   hand   and   one   at   your   left,   in   your   glory.’
38 But   Jesus   said   to   them,   ‘You   do   not   know   what
you   are   asking. Are   you   able   to   drink   the   cup   that   I
drink,   or   be   baptized   with   the   baptism   that   I   am
baptized   with?’ 39 They   replied,   ‘We   are   able.’   Then
Jesus   said   to   them,   ‘The   cup   that   I   drink   you   will
drink;    and    with    the    baptism    with    which    I    am
baptized,   you   will   be   baptized; 40 but   to   sit   at   my
right   hand   or   at   my   left   is   not   mine   to   grant,   but   it   is
for   those   for   whom   it   has   been   prepared.’ 41 When
the    ten    heard    this,    they    began    to    be    angry    with
James   and   John. 42 So   Jesus   called   them   and   said   to
them,    ‘You    know    that    among    the    Gentiles    those
whom   they   recognize   as   their   rulers   lord   it   over
them,   and   their   great   ones   are   tyrants   over   them.
43 But   it   is   not   so   among   you;   but   whoever   wishes   to
become    great    among    you    must    be    your    servant,
44 and   whoever   wishes   to   be   first   among   you   must
be   slave   of   all. 45 For   the   Son   of   Man   came   not   to   be
served   but   to   serve,   and   to   give   his   life   a   ransom   for
many.’

1st reading:         Isaiah 53:4-12

4 Surely he has borne our infirmities and

carried our diseases; yet we accounted

him stricken, struck down by God, and

afflicted.

5 But he was wounded for our

transgressions,

crushed for our iniquities; upon him was

the punishment that made us whole, and

by his bruises we are healed. 6 All we

like sheep have gone astray; we have all

turned to our own way, and the LORD

has laid on him the iniquity of us all. 7

He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,

yet he did not open his mouth; like a

lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like

a sheep that before its shearers is silent,

so he did not open his mouth. 8 By a

perversion of justice he was taken away.

Who could have imagined his future?

For he was cut off from the land of the

living, stricken for the transgression of

my people.  9 They made his grave with

the wicked and his tomb with the rich,

although he had done no violence, and

there was no deceit in his mouth. 10 Yet

it was the will of the LORD to crush him

with pain. When you make his life an

offering for sin, he shall see his

offspring, and shall prolong his days;

through him the will of the LORD shall

prosper. 11 Out of his anguish he shall

see light; he shall find satisfaction

through his knowledge. The righteous

one, my servant, shall make many

righteous, and he shall bear their

iniquities. 12 Therefore I will allot him a

portion with the great, and he shall

divide the spoil with the strong; because

he poured out himself to death, and was

numbered with the transgressors; yet he

bore the sin of many, and made

intercession for the transgressors.

2nd Reading:      Hebrews 5:1-10 1 Every high priest chosen from among mortals is put in charge of things pertaining to God on their behalf, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. 2 He is able to deal gently with the ignorant and wayward, since he himself is subject to weakness; 3 and because of this he must offer sacrifice for his own sins as well as for those of the people. 4 And one does not presume to take this honour, but takes it only when called by God, just as Aaron was. 5 So also Christ did not glorify himself in becoming a high priest, but was appointed by the one who said to him, ‘You are my Son, today I have begotten you’; 6 as he says also in another place, ‘You are a priest for ever, according to the order of Melchizedek.’ 7 In the days of his flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to the one who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. 8 Although he was a Son, he learned obedience through what he suffered; 9 and having been made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him, 10 having been designated by God a high priest according to the order of Melchizedek.
Gospel:                         Mark 10:35-45 The Request of James and John 35 James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came forward to him and said to him, ‘Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you.’ 36 And he said to them, ‘What is it you want me to do for you?’ 37 And they said to him, ‘Grant us to sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your glory.’ 38 But Jesus said to them, ‘You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?’ 39 They replied, ‘We are able.’ Then Jesus said to them, ‘The cup that I drink you will drink; and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you will be baptized; 40 but to sit at my right hand or at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared.’ 41 When the ten heard this, they began to be angry with James and John. 42 So Jesus called them and said to them, ‘You know that among the Gentiles those whom they recognize as their rulers lord it over them, and their great ones are tyrants over them. 43 But it is not so among you; but whoever wishes to become great among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever wishes to be first among you must be slave of all. 45 For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.’
