1. First Reading Exodus 24.3-8
When I attend the liturgy of the Mass, am I conscious of participating in the covenant God has made with us? “All that the Lord has spoken we will do, and we will be obedient.” God’s “All” is limitless. What limits have I put on my response to God? How can I more deeply engage in the covenant relationship God offers? Can that all-too-often automatic “Amen” come to express my whole-hearted self-offering and commitment to God?

Sequence (6): “This the truth each Christian learns: bread into his own flesh Christ turns, to his precious Blood the wine. Sight must fail, no thought conceives, but a steadfast faith believes, resting on a power divine.”
Psalm 116: “I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the Lord.”

2. Second Reading Hebrews 9.11-15
Sprinkling with blood was an important part of ritual purification for the Hebrews. What aspects of those practices foreshadow Christ’s redeeming sacrifice? After reading this text, how would I explain my faith with regard to Christ’s sacrifice and his Blood?
Alleluia. I am the living bread that came down from heaven, says the Lord; whoever eats of this bread will live forever. Alleluia.”

3. Gospel Reading Mark 14.12-16, 22-26
What was that last Passover meal with Jesus like? What meaning did the words Jesus used have for the disciples, as he broke the bread and gave them the cup? They did not forget. Am I again with Jesus as the priest uses his words to consecrate the Eucharist? What meaning do they have for me?
