 LITURGY FOCUS: In today’s first reading, one of the prophet Isaiah’s “Songs of the Suffering
 Servant of the Lord”, Christians see a portrait of Jesus. In the second reading, Saint Paul describes Him
 as “emptying Himself” and “taking the form of a slave”, embracing even death in self-sacrificing love
 for us. The Passion according to Mark portrays, in especially stark and dramatic way, the failure of
 Jesus’ disciples and the profound sense of abandonment that surrounded His faithful witnessing “even
 unto death on a cross”. May Jesus’ example move our hearts to draw closer to Him and to make the
 centurion’s profession of faith our own: “Truly this man was the Son of God!”

           Land. Our hearts, minds and prayers are also especially aware of the Holy Land. Envelopes are
           provided in your envelope packet. Please be as generous as possible.
