Readings: OUR LADY OF SORROWS

First Reading

 

First Reading: Hebrews 5:7-9

In the days when Christ was in the flesh, 
he offered prayers and supplications with loud cries and tears 
to the one who was able to save him from death, 
and he was heard because of his reverence. 
Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered; 
and when he was made perfect, 
he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him.

Responsorial Psalm

 

Responsorial Psalm: Ps 31:2 and 3b, 3cd-4, 5-6, 15-16, 20

R./ Save me, O Lord, in your kindness.

In you, O Lord, I take refuge; 
let me never be put to shame. 
In your justice rescue me, 
make haste to deliver me! 
R./ Save me, O Lord, in your kindness.

Be my rock of refuge, 
a stronghold to give me safety. 
You are my rock and my fortress; 
for your name's sake you will lead and guide me. 
R./ Save me, O Lord, in your kindness.

You will free me from the snare they set for me, 
for you are my refuge. 
Into your hands I commend my spirit; 
you will redeem me, O Lord, O faithful God. 
R./ Save me, O Lord, in your kindness.

But my trust is in you, O Lord, 
I say, "You are my God." 
In your hands is my destiny; rescue me 
from the clutches of my enemies and my persecutors. 
R./ Save me, O Lord, in your kindness.

How great is your goodness, O Lord, 
which you have in store for those who fear you, 
And which, toward those who take refuge in you, 
you show in the sight of the children of men. 
R./ Save me, O Lord, in your kindness.

Holy Gospel

 

Gospel Reading: Jn 19:25-27

Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother's sister Mary, who was the wife of Cleophas, and Mary of Magdala. When Jesus saw the Mother, and the disciple whom he loved, he said to the Mother, "Woman, this is your son." Then he said to the disciple, "There is your mother." And from that moment the disciple took her to his own home.
