First reading: Fourth servant song. “See my servant shall prosper, he shall be exalted and lifted up.”
Psalm: The psalmist complains of the very deplorable condition he was in and about his calamities; yet, still he prays that God would graciously appear for him against his persecutors and professes his confidence in Him and expectation from Him.
Gospel: The passion narrative.
“It is at the foot of this Cross that we should remain always. It is the place where the imitators of our Sovereign Master and Saviour ordinarily abide. For it is from the Cross that they receive the heavenly liqueur of holy charity. It streams out in great profusion from a divine Source, the bosom of our good God’s divine mercy.” St. Francis de Sales
