Reading 1 and// 2 COR 4and7-15 Brothers and sistersandWe hold this treasure in earthen vessels,that the surpassing power may be of God and not from us.We are afflicted in every way, but not constrainedperplexed, but not driven to despairpersecuted, but not abandonedstruck down, but not destroyedalways carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus,so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our body.For we who live are constantly being given up to deathfor the sake of Jesus,so that the life of Jesus may be manifested in our mortal flesh.So death is at work in us, but life in you.Since, then, we have the same spirit of faith,according to what is written,I believed, therefore I spoke,we too believe and therefore speak,knowing that the one who raised the Lord Jesuswill raise us also with Jesusand place us with you in his presence.Everything indeed is for you,so that the grace bestowed in abundance on more and more peoplemay cause the thanksgiving to overflow for the glory of God. Responsorial Psalm and// PS 126and1BC-2AB, 2CD-3, 4-5, 6 R. (5)Those who sow in tears shall reap rejoicing.When the LORD brought back the captives of Zion,we were like men dreaming.Then our mouth was filled with laughter,and our tongue with rejoicing.R.Those who sow in tears shall reap rejoicing.Then they said among the nations, The LORD has done great things for them.”The LORD has done great things for uswe are glad indeed.R.Those who sow in tears shall reap rejoicing.Restore our fortunes, O LORD,like the torrents in the southern desert.Those that sow in tearsshall reap rejoicing.R.Those who sow in tears shall reap rejoicing.Although they go forth weeping,carrying the seed to be sown,They shall come back rejoicing,carrying their sheaves.R.Those who sow in tears shall reap rejoicing. Alleluia and// SEE JN 15:16 R.Alleluia, alleluia.I chose you from the world,to go and bear fruit that will last, says the Lord.R.Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel and// MT 20:20-28 The mother of the sons of Zebedee approached Jesus with her sonsand 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 givebut 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 servantwhoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave.Just so, the Son of Man did not come to be servedbut to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
