1st Reading Numbers 21:4-9

And they marched from mount. Hor, by the way that leadeth to the Red Sea, to compass the land of Edom. And the people began to be weary of their journey and labor. And speaking against God and Moses they said: Why didst thou bring us out of Egypt, to die in the wilderness? There is no bread , nor have we any waters: our soul now loatheth this very light food. Wherefore the Lord sent among the people fiery serpents, which bit them and killed many of them. Upon which they came to Moses and said: We have sinned , because we have spoken against the Lord and thee: pray that he may take away these serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people.  And the Lord said to him: Make a brazen serpent, and set it up for a sign: whosoever being struck shall look on it and shall live. Moses therefore made a brazen serpent and set it up for a sign: which when they were bitten looked upon, they were healed.

2nd Reading Philippians 2:6-11

Who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men and in habit found as man. He humbled himself, becoming obedient unto death, even to the death of the cross.  For which cause God also hath exalted him, and hath given him a name which is above all names: That in the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, of those  that are in heaven on eart, and under the earth. And that every tongue should confess that the Lord Jesus Christ is in  the glory of God the Father.

Gospel according to St. John 3:13-17

And no man hath ascended into heaven, but he that descended from heaven, the Son of man who is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up to the serpent in the desert, so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him, may not perish, but may have everlasting. For God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in him,  may not perish, but may have life everlasting. For Goed sent not his Son into the world, to judge the world, but that the world may be saved by him.

Catechism of the Catholic Church reading 1731

Freedom is the power, rooted in the reason and will, to act or not to act, to do this or that, and so preform deliberate actions on one’s own responsibility. By free will one shapes one’s own life. Human freedomis a force for growth and maturity in thruth and goodness; it attains its perfection when directed toward God, our beatitude.
