Mass readings in Scots: The Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ (Year B)

Gospel reading
Mark 14: 12-16, 22-26

And on the first day o’ the Sad Breid, whan they aye kill’t the Paschal lamb, his disciples speir’t at him, “Whaur wull ye that we gang and mak ready that we may eat the Pasche?” And he sends oot twa o’ the disciples, and quo’ he to them, “Gang yere ways intil the citie, and a man wi’ a stoup o’ watir sal meet ye: follow him. And whaur he may gang in, say ye to the gudeman o’ the hoose, ‘The Maister says, Whaur is my lodgins, whaur I may eat the Pasche wi’ my disciples?' And he himsel wull schaw ye a gudely upper room, plenish’t and ready: and thar prepare ye for us.” And the disciples ga’ed oot, and cam intil the citie, and faund as he had said to them; and they prepared the Pasche.

And as they war eatin, Jesus took breid, and whan he bless’t, brak it, and gied it to them, and said, “Tak ye, this is my body.” And he took a cup; and giean thanks, gied it to them; and they drank o’t. And he said to them, “This is my blude o’ the Covenant, the blude shed for mony. Truly say I t’ye, Nae mair sal I drink o’ the frute o’ the vine, until I drink it anew in the Kingdom o’ God!” And whan they had sung the Psalm, they gaed oot in til the Mount o’ Olives.
