Memorial of Our Lady of Sorrows

1st reading: 1 Corinthians 11:17- 26, 33

Now this I ordain: not praising you, that you come together not for the better, but for the worse. For first of all I hear that when you come together in the church, there are schisms among you; and in part I believe it. For there must be also heresies: that they also, who are approved,  may be made manifest among you. When you come therefore. together into one place, it is not now to eat the Lord’s supper. Fore every one taketh before his own supper to eat.  And one indeed is hungry  and another is drunk. What, have you not houses to eat and drink in? Or despise ye the church of God; and put them to shame that have not? What shall I say to you? Do I praise you? In this I praise you not. For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus, the same night in which he was betrayed , took bread. And giving thanks: broke, and said: Take ye, and eat: this is my body , which shall be delivered for you: this do for the commemoration of me. In the like manner also the chalice, after he had supped, saying: This chalice is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as often as you shall drink, for the commemoration of me. For as often as you shall eat this bread, and drink the chalice, you shall shew the death of the Lord, until he come.

2nd reading:  Hebrews 5:7-9

Who  in the days of his flesh, with a strong cry and tears, offering up prayers and supplications to him that was able to save him from death, was heard for his reverence. And whereas indeed he was the Son of God, he learned the obedience by the things which he suffered. And being consummated, he became, to all that obey him, the cause of eternal salvation.

Gospel According to St. John 19:25-27

Now there stood by the cross of Jesus, his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary of of Cleophas, and Mary Madalen. When Jesus therefore had seen his mother and the disciple standing whom he love, he saith to his mother: Woman, behold thy son. After that, he saith to the disciple: Behold my mother. And from that hour, the disciple took her to his own.

Catechism of the Church  1733

The more one does what is good, the freer one becomes. There is no true freedom except in the service of what is good and just. The choice to disobey and to do evil is an abuse of freedom and leads to “slavery of sin”
