Gospel: Matthew 12:14–21
"Here is my servant, whom I have chosen." (cf. Matthew 12:18)
Despite knowing the plan of killing Jesus, many people did not leave him. They followed Him instead. And as a fulfilment of the prophecy, Jesus accepted those who are sick and forgotten by the society. He became the servant whom the Lord had chosen to serve and save us.
Mother Mary, help us to be like Jesus in serving and accepting the sick and the forgotten. Amen.
