First Reading 
Isa 53:10-11

[10] And the Lord was pleased to bruise him in infirmity: if he shall lay down his life for sin, he shall see a long-lived seed, and the will of the Lord shall be prosperous in his hand.

[11] Because his soul hath laboured, he shall see and be filled: by his knowledge shall this my just servant justify many, and he shall bear their iniquities.

Second Reading

Heb 4:14-16

[14] Having therefore a great high priest that hath passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God: let us hold fast our confession. [15] For we have not a high priest, who can not have compassion on our infirmities: but one tempted in all things like as we are, without sin.

[16] Let us go therefore with confidence to the throne of grace: that we may obtain mercy, and find grace in seasonable aid.

Mark 10:46-52

[35] And James and John the sons of Zebedee, come to him, saying: Master, we desire that whatsoever we shall ask, thou wouldst do it for us:

[36] But he said to them: What would you that I should do for you? [37] And they said: Grant to us, that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory. [38] And Jesus said to them: You know not what you ask. Can you drink of the chalice that I drink of: or be baptized with the baptism wherewith I am baptized? [39] But they said to him: We can. And Jesus saith to them: You shall indeed drink of the chalice that I drink of: and with the baptism wherewith I am baptized, you shall be baptized. [40] But to sit on my right hand, or on my left, is not mine to give to you, but to them for whom it is prepared.

[41] And the ten hearing it, began to be much displeased at James and John. [42] But Jesus calling them, saith to them: You know that they who seem to rule over the Gentiles, lord it over them: and their princes have power over them. [43] But it is not so among you: but whosoever will be greater, shall be your minister. [44] And whosoever will be first among you, shall be the servant of all. [45] For the Son of man also is not come to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a redemption for many.
