In those days,
Jesus, going up to Jerusalem,
took the Twelve disciples aside
and on the way he said to them:
"Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem.
The Son of Man will be delivered
to the chief priests and scribes,
they will condemn him to death
and deliver it to the heathen nations
to make fun of him,
scourge and crucify him;
on the third day he will rise again".
Then the mother of the sons of Zebedee
came to Jesus with his sons James and John,
and she prostrated herself to make a request.
Jesus said to him:
"What do you want?"
"Order that my two sons
sit, one on your right and the other on your left,
in your Kingdom.
"You don't know what you're asking.
Can you drink the cup I am about to drink?"
They say to him:
He said to them:
"You shall drink my cup;
to sit on my right and left,
it's not up to me to grant it;
there are those for whom it is prepared by my Father.
The other ten had heard,
were indignant with the two brothers.
Jesus called them together and said:
"As you know:
the leaders of the nations are their masters,
and the big boys are making their power felt.
It doesn't have to be that way among you:
the one who wants to become great among you
will be your servant;
and he who wishes to be first among you
will be your slave.
So the Son of Man did not come to be served,
but to serve,
and give his life as a ransom for many".
Mt 20, 17-28
