P: The Holy Gospel according to Mark.
C: Glory be to Thee, O Lord
Jesus Again Foretells Death, Resurrection
They went on from there and passed through Galilee. And he did not want anyone
to know, for he was teaching his disciples, saying to them, “The Son of Man is
going to be delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill him. And when he is
killed, after three days he will rise.” But they did not understand the saying, and
were afraid to ask him.
Who Is the Greatest?
And they came to Capernaum. And when he was in the house he asked them, “What
were you discussing on the way?” But they kept silent, for on the way they had
argued with one another about who was the greatest. And he sat down and called
the twelve. And he said to them, “If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and
servant of all.” And he took a child and put him in the midst of them, and taking
him in his arms, he said to them, “Whoever receives one such child in my name
receives me, and whoever receives me, receives not me but him who sent me.”
P: This is the Gospel of the Lord.
C: Praise be to Thee, O Christ.
