Today O God we raise our hearts and voices to You in Praise and thanksgiving! From Salvation history to this very day Your love for us is everlasting. Most of all we thank You for the most precious gift of Your Son Jesus Christ from whom we have eternal life.

Lord Jesus grant us Your Grace, wisdom and courage. So that we may die to ourselves each day; to rise in You to love and serve our heavenly Father doing His Will for us.

Let me humbly follow Your example by being a loving servant-leader to and for my brethren. And let me sing of Your love forever. Amen

FIRST READING
Acts 13:13–25

GOSPEL
John 13:16–20

When Jesus had washed the disciples’ feet, he said to them: “Amen, amen, I say to you, no slave is greater than his master nor any messenger greater than the one who sent him. If you understand this, blessed are you if you do it. I am not speaking of all of you. I know those whom I have chosen. But so that the Scripture might be fulfilled, The one who ate my food has raised his heel against me. From now on I am telling you before it happens, so that when it happens you may believe that I AM. Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever receives the one I send receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me.”
