Year A - Lectionary [38]

First Reading

My face I did not shield from buffets and spitting knowing that I shall not be put to shame.


My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?

Second Reading

Christ humbled himself. Because of this God greatly exalted him.

Gospel Acclamation

Christ became obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Because of this, God greatly exalted him and bestowed on him the name which is above every name.
