GOSPEL Mark 11:1-11

✠ A reading from the holy gospel according to Mark

When they drew near to Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples and said to them, “Go into the village opposite you, and immediately on entering it, you will find a colt tethered on which no one has ever sat. Untie it and bring it here. If anyone should say to you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ reply, ‘The Master has need of it and will send it back here at once.'” So they went off and found a colt tethered at a gate outside on the street, and they untied it. Some of the bystanders said to them, “What are you doing, untying the colt?” They answered them just as Jesus had told them to, and they permitted them to do it. So they brought the colt to Jesus and put their cloaks over it. And he sat on it. Many people spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches that they had cut from the fields. Those preceding him as well as those following kept crying out: “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the kingdom of our father David that is to come! Hosanna in the highest!” He entered Jerusalem and went into the temple area. He looked around at everything and, since it was already late, went out to Bethany with the Twelve.

VANGELO Mc 11, 1-11
✠ Lettura del vangelo secondo Marco

In quel tempo. Quando furono vicini a Gerusalemme, verso Bètfage e Betània, presso il monte degli Ulivi, il Signore Gesù mandò due dei suoi discepoli e disse loro: «Andate nel villaggio di fronte a voi e subito, entrando in esso, troverete un puledro legato, sul quale nessuno è ancora salito. Slegatelo e portatelo qui. E se qualcuno vi dirà: “Perché fate questo?”, rispondete: “Il Signore ne ha bisogno, ma lo rimanderà qui subito”». Andarono e trovarono un puledro legato vicino a una porta, fuori sulla strada, e lo slegarono. Alcuni dei presenti dissero loro: «Perché slegate questo puledro?». Ed essi risposero loro come aveva detto Gesù. E li lasciarono fare. Portarono il puledro da Gesù, vi gettarono sopra i loro mantelli ed egli vi salì sopra. Molti stendevano i propri mantelli sulla strada, altri invece delle fronde, tagliate nei campi. Quelli che precedevano e quelli che seguivano, gridavano: «Osanna! Benedetto colui che viene nel nome del Signore! Benedetto il Regno che viene, del nostro padre Davide! Osanna nel più alto dei cieli!». Ed entrò a Gerusalemme, nel tempio. E dopo aver guardato ogni cosa attorno, essendo ormai l’ora tarda, uscì con i Dodici verso Betània.
