Reading from the Gospel, Wednesday May 27 (click here)

Liturgical Day: Wednesday May 27
 Gospel (Mk 10, 32-45): At that time, the disciples were on their way up to Jerusalem, and Jesus was going before them; they were amazed and those who followed were afraid. He took the Twelve again and began to tell them what was going to happen, "Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and the Son of man shall be betrayed to the chief priests and scribes; They will condemn him to death and deliver him to the Gentiles, and they will mock him, spit on him, flog him and kill him, and after three days rise again. "

Approach him James and John, sons of Zebedee, and tell him, "Teacher, we, grant us whatever we ask of you." He said, "What do you want to do for you?". They answered him, "Grant that in your glory we may sit, one at your right and one at your left." Jesus said, "Ye know not what ye ask. Can you drink the cup that I drink, or be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized? ". They said, "Yes, we can." Jesus said, "The cup that I drink, if you drink and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized; but to sit at my right or left is not mine to give but is for whom it is prepared. "

When the other ten heard this, they began to be indignant at James and John. Jesus, calling them, tells them: "You know that those who are regarded as leaders of nations, dominate as absolute lords and their great ones exercise authority over them. But it must not be so among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all, For the Son of Man came to be served but to serve and give his life a ransom for many.
