Gospel

 

Mk 10:35-45 or 10:42-45

James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to Jesus and said to him,

“Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you.” 

He replied, “What do you wish me to do for you?” 

They answered him, “Grant that in your glory

we may sit one at your right and the other at your left.” 

Jesus said to them, “You do not know what you are asking. 

Can you drink the cup that I drink

or be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized?” 

They said to him, “We can.” 

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;

but to sit at my right or at my left is not mine to give

but is for those for whom it has been prepared.” 

When the ten heard this, they became indignant at James and John. 

Jesus summoned them and said to them,

“You know that those who are recognized as rulers over the Gentiles

lord it over them,

and their great ones make their authority over them felt. 

But it shall not be so among you.

Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you will be your servant;

whoever wishes to be first among you will be the slave of all. 

For the Son of Man did not come to be served

but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

OR:

Jesus summoned the twelve and said to them,

“You know that those who are recognized as rulers over the Gentiles

lord it over them,

and their great ones make their authority over them felt. 

But it shall not be so among you. 

Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you will be your servant;

whoever wishes to be first among you will be the slave of all. 

For the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

EVANGELHO – Forma longa Mc 10, 35-45

Evangelho de Nosso Senhor Jesus Cristo segundo São Marcos

Naquele tempo, Tiago e João, filhos de Zebedeu, aproximaram-se de Jesus e disseram-Lhe: «Mestre, nós queremos que nos faças o que Te vamos pedir». Jesus respondeu-lhes: «Que quereis que vos faça?». Eles responderam: «Concede-nos que, na tua glória, nos sentemos um à tua direita e outro à tua esquerda». Disse-lhes Jesus: «Não sabeis o que pedis. Podeis beber o cálice que Eu vou beber e receber o baptismo com que Eu vou ser baptizado?». Eles responderam-Lhe: «Podemos». Então Jesus disse-lhes: «Bebereis o cálice que Eu vou beber e sereis baptizados com o baptismo com que Eu vou ser baptizado. Mas sentar-se à minha direita ou à minha esquerda não Me pertence a Mim concedê-lo; é para aqueles a quem está reservado». Os outros dez, ouvindo isto, começaram a indignar-se contra Tiago e João. Jesus chamou-os e disse-lhes: «Sabeis que os que são considerados como chefes das nações exercem domínio sobre elas e os grandes fazem sentir sobre elas o seu poder. Não deve ser assim entre vós: quem entre vós quiser tornar-se grande, será vosso servo, e quem quiser entre vós ser o primeiro, será escravo de todos; porque o Filho do homem não veio para ser servido, mas para servir e dar a vida pela redenção de todos».

Palavra da salvação.
