when someone slaps us on the cheek,
you call us to offer the other;
when someone takes our coat,
you bid us give our shirt as well;
when someone takes what is ours,
we may not demand it back.
Jesus, teacher without peer,
you have turned the world upside down.
Gospel Reading - Love one another
31 As soon as Judas left the room, Jesus said, "My time has come; the glory of God will soon surround me - and God shall receive great praise because of all that happens to me. 32 And God shall give me his own glory, and this so very soon. 33 Dear, dear children, how brief are these moments before I must go away and leave you! Then, though you search for me, you cannot come to me - just as I told the Jewish leaders.
34 "And so I am giving a new commandment to you now - love each other just as much as I love you. 35 Your strong love for each other will prove to the world that you are my disciples.". . . . .John 13:31-35
In the heavenly kingdom,
the blessèd have their dwelling place;
and their rest for ever and ever.
The Lord's Prayer
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
