    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."

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Sir 48:1-4, 9-11

    In those days,
    like a fire there appeared the prophet Elijah
    whose words were as a flaming furnace.
    Their staff of bread he shattered,
    in his zeal he reduced them to straits;
    By the Lord’s word he shut up the heavens
    and three times brought down fire.
    How awesome are you, Elijah, in your wondrous deeds!
    Whose glory is equal to yours?
    You were taken aloft in a whirlwind of fire,
    in a chariot with fiery horses.
    You were destined, it is written, in time to come
    to put an end to wrath before the day of the LORD,
    To turn back the hearts of fathers toward their sons,
    and to re-establish the tribes of Jacob.
    Blessed is he who shall have seen you
    and who falls asleep in your friendship.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 80:2ac and 3b, 15-16, 18-19

    R. (4) Lord, make us turn to you;let us see your face and we shall be saved.
    O shepherd of Israel, hearken,
    From your throne upon the cherubim, shine forth.
    Rouse your power.
    R. Lord, make us turn to you;let us see your face and we shall be saved.
    Once again, O LORD of hosts,
    look down from heaven, and see;
    Take care of this vine,
    and protect what your right hand has planted
    the son of man whom you yourself made strong.
    R. Lord, make us turn to you;let us see your face and we shall be saved.
    May your help be with the man of your right hand,
    with the son of man whom you yourself made strong.
    Then we will no more withdraw from you;
    give us new life, and we will call upon your name.
    R. Lord, make us turn to you;let us see your face and we shall be saved.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 17:9a, 10-13

    As they were coming down from the mountain,
    the disciples asked Jesus,
    “Why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?”
    He said in reply, “Elijah will indeed come and restore all things;
    but I tell you that Elijah has already come,
    and they did not recognize him but did to him whatever they pleased.
    So also will the Son of Man suffer at their hands.”
    Then the disciples understood
    that he was speaking to them of John the Baptist.
