Text Box: Sunday Scripture 
	We are to model our lives on that of Jesus. Jesus is our mentor, and the model of how to be a servant of God and others. He taught us that we are to love God with our whole being, and to do his will. We are also to lay down our lives in service to others. As we enter Holy Week, let us resolve to do these things as we take up our cross and follow Jesus.
	Isaiah tells of a Suffering Servant, who trusts in the Lord to deliver him. The Letter to the Philippians speaks about Jesus as the Servant who emptied himself of his lofty position in heaven, accepting death on a cross for our salvation. The Gospel recounts the Passion of our Lord, Christ's ultimate act of love and sacrifice.
