    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Ps 1:1Rv 11:19a;12:1-6a, 10ab

    God's temple in heaven was opened,
    and the ark of his covenant could be seen in the temple.

    A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun,
    with the moon under her feet,
    and on her head a crown of twelve stars.
    She was with child and wailed aloud in pain as she labored to give birth.
    Then another sign appeared in the sky;
    it was a huge red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns,
    and on its heads were seven diadems.
    Its tail swept away a third of the stars in the sky
    and hurled them down to the earth.
    Then the dragon stood before the woman about to give birth,
    to devour her child when she gave birth.
    She gave birth to a son, a male child,
    destined to rule all the nations with an iron rod.
    Her child was caught up to God and his throne.
    The woman herself fled into the desert
    where she had a place prepared by God.

    Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:
    "Now have salvation and power come,
    and the Kingdom of our God
    and the authority of his Anointed."

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Jdt 13:18bcde, 19

    R. (15:9d) You are the highest honor of our race.
    Blessed are you, daughter, by the Most High God,
    above all the women on earth;
    and blessed be the LORD God,
    the creator of heaven and earth.
    R. You are the highest honor of our race.
    Your deed of hope will never be forgotten
    by those who tell of the might of God.
    R. You are the highest honor of our race.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 1:39-47

    Mary set out
    and traveled to the hill country in haste
    to a town of Judah,
    where she entered the house of Zechariah
    and greeted Elizabeth.
    When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting,
    the infant leaped in her womb,
    and Elizabeth, filled with the Holy Spirit,
    cried out in a loud voice and said,
    "Most blessed are you among women,
    and blessed is the fruit of your womb.
    And how does this happen to me,
    that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
    For at the moment the sound of your greeting reached my ears,
    the infant in my womb leaped for joy.
    Blessed are you who believed
    that what was spoken to you by the Lord
    would be fulfilled."

    And Mary said:

    "My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord;
    my spirit rejoices in God my savior."

    Advent Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Is 48:17-19

    Thus says the LORD, your redeemer,
    the Holy One of Israel:
    I, the LORD, your God,
    teach you what is for your good,
    and lead you on the way you should go.
    If you would hearken to my commandments,
    your prosperity would be like a river,
    and your vindication like the waves of the sea;
    Your descendants would be like the sand,
    and those born of your stock like its grains,
    Their name never cut off
    or blotted out from my presence.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 1:1-2, 3, 4 and 6

    R. (see John 8:12) Those who follow you, Lord, will have the light of life.
    Blessed the man who follows not
    the counsel of the wicked
    Nor walks in the way of sinners,
    nor sits in the company of the insolent,
    But delights in the law of the LORD
    and meditates on his law day and night.
    R. Those who follow you, Lord, will have the light of life.
    He is like a tree
    planted near running water,
    That yields its fruit in due season,
    and whose leaves never fade.
    Whatever he does, prospers.
    R. Those who follow you, Lord, will have the light of life.
    Not so the wicked, not so;
    they are like chaff which the wind drives away.
    For the LORD watches over the way of the just,
    but the way of the wicked vanishes.
    R. Those who follow you, Lord, will have the light of life.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 11:16-19

    Jesus said to the crowds:
    “To what shall I compare this generation?
    It is like children who sit in marketplaces and call to one another,
    ‘We played the flute for you, but you did not dance,
    we sang a dirge but you did not mourn.’
    For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they said,
    ‘He is possessed by a demon.’
    The Son of Man came eating and drinking and they said,
    ‘Look, he is a glutton and a drunkard,
    a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’
    But wisdom is vindicated by her works.”
