Palm Sunday

John 12:1-19 Mary Anoints JesusSix days before the Passover Jesus came to Bethany, the home of Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead. There they gave a dinner for him.

John 3:14-21 And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in…

John 2:13-22 Jesus Cleanses the TempleThe Passover of the Jews was near, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

Second Sunday in Lent

Mark 8:31-38 Jesus Foretells His Death and Resurrection Then [Jesus] began to teach them that the Son of Man must undergo great suffering, and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. He said all this quite openly. And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. But turning and looking at his…

First Sunday in Lent

Mark 1:9-15 In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. And just as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit descending like a dove on him.

Ash Wednesday

Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21 Concerning Almsgiving“Beware of practicing your piety before others in order to be seen by them; for then you have no reward from your Father in heaven.“So whenever you give alms, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, so that they may be praised by others. Truly I tell you, they have received…

Transfiguration Sunday

Mark 9:2-9 The TransfigurationSix days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain apart, by themselves.

Then Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi,…

Mark 1:29-39 Jesus Heals Many at Simon’s House As soon as they left the synagogue, they entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. Now Simon’s mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they told him about her at once. He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up. Then the fever left her, and she began to serve them. That evening, at sunset, they…
