Official Translation

Reading 1 – Isaiah 49.1-6

Listen, islands, to me;
and listen, you far off peoples:
the Lord has called me from the womb;
from the inner place of my mother
has he called me by name:
and he has made my mouth like a sharp sword;
in the shadow of his hand, he has hidden me:
and he has made me a polished arrow;
in his quiver has he kept me close:
and he said to me,
“You are my servant; Israel,
in whom I will be glorified.”

Though I said, “I have labored in vain,
I have spent my strength in vain for nothing”,
yet surely the justice due to me is with the Lord,
and my reward with my God.
Now the Lord,
he who formed me from the womb to be his servant,
says to bring Jacob again to him,
and that Israel be gathered to him.
I am honorable in the eyes of the Lord,
and my God has become my strength.
Indeed, he says,
“It is too light a thing that
you should be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob,
and to restore the preserved of Israel.
I will also make you a light to the nations,
that you may be my salvation to the end of the earth.”

Responsorial – Psalm 71.1-2, 3-4a, 5ab-6ab, 15+17 Resp. 15ab

R. My mouth will tell of your salvation.

In you, O Lord, I take refuge.
Never let me be disappointed.
Deliver me in your righteousness, and rescue me.
Turn your ear to me, and save me.

R. My mouth will tell of your salvation.

Be to me a rock of refuge.
Give the command to save me,
for you are my rock and my fortress.
Rescue me, my God, from the hand of the wicked,

R. My mouth will tell of your salvation.

For you are my hope, O the Lord,
my confidence from my youth.
I have relied on you from the womb.
You are he who took me out of my mother’s womb.

R. My mouth will tell of your salvation.

My mouth will tell about your righteousness,
and of your salvation all day,
God, you have taught me from my youth.
Until now, I have declared your wondrous works.

R. I will sing of your salvation.

Gospel – John 13.21-33, 36-38

Reclining at table with his disciples,
Jesus was troubled in spirit, and testified,
“Amen I say to you that one of you will betray me.”
The disciples looked at one another,
perplexed about whom he spoke.
One of his disciples, whom Jesus loved, was at the table,
leaning against Jesus’ breast.
Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, and said to him,
“Tell us who it is of whom he speaks.”
He, leaning back, as he was, on Jesus’ breast,
asked him, “Lord, who is it?”
Jesus therefore answered,
“It is he to whom I will give this piece of bread
when I have dipped it.”
So when he had dipped the piece of bread,
he gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot.
After the piece of bread, Satan entered into him.
Then Jesus said to him, “What you do, do quickly.”
Now no man at the table knew why he said this to him.
For some thought, because Judas had the money box,
that Jesus said to him, “Buy what things we need for the feast,”
or that he should give something to the poor.
Therefore having received that morsel,
he went out immediately. It was night.

When he had gone out, Jesus said,
“Now the Son of Man has been glorified,
and God has been glorified in him.
If God has been glorified in him,
God will also glorify him in himself,
and he will glorify him immediately.
Little children, I will be with you a little while longer.
You will seek me, and as I said to the Jews, so now I tell you:
where I am going, you cannot come.

Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, where are you going?”
Jesus answered, “Where I am going,
you cannot follow now,
but you will follow afterwards.”
Peter said to him,
“Lord, why can I not follow you now?
I will lay down my life for you.”
Jesus answered him, “Will you lay down your life for me?
Amen, amen, I say to you,
the rooster will not crow
until you have denied me three times.”
