Readings from the Bible for the Roman Catholic liturgy in the extraordinary form

Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jezus

A Roman pierces Jesus' side with a spear (Simon Bisley, © Simon Bisley)
Jn 19:33-35

But when they came to Jesus and saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs, but one soldier thrust his lance into his side, and immediately blood and water flowed out. An eyewitness has testified, and his testimony is true; he knows that he is speaking the truth, so that you also may (come to) believe.
