    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Isaiah 6:1-8

    1In the year that King Uzzi'ah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up;and his train filled the temple. 2Above him stood the seraphim;each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3And one called to another and said: "Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts;the whole earth is full of his glory." 4And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke. 5And I said: "Woe is me! For I am lost;for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips;for my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts!" 6Then flew one of the seraphim to me, having in his hand a burning coal which he had taken with tongs from the altar. 7And he touched my mouth, and said: "Behold, this has touched your lips;your guilt is taken away, and your sin forgiven." 8And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?" Then I said, "Here am I! Send me."

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 40:2, 4, 7-11

    1I waited patiently for the LORD;he inclined to me and heard my cry. 3He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the LORD. 6Sacrifice and offering thou dost not desire;but thou hast given me an open ear. Burnt offering and sin offering thou hast not required. 7Then I said, "Lo, I come;in the roll of the book it is written of me;8I delight to do thy will, O my God;thy law is within my heart." 9I have told the glad news of deliverance in the great congregation;lo, I have not restrained my lips, as thou knowest, O LORD. 10I have not hid thy saving help within my heart, I have spoken of thy faithfulness and thy salvation;I have not concealed thy steadfast love and thy faithfulness from the great congregation.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Luke 10:1-9

    1After this the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to come. 2And he said to them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few;pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. 3Go your way;behold, I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. 4Carry no purse, no bag, no sandals;and salute no one on the road. 5Whatever house you enter, first say, `Peace be to this house!' 6And if a son of peace is there, your peace shall rest upon him;but if not, it shall return to you. 7And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for the laborer deserves his wages;do not go from house to house. 8Whenever you enter a town and they receive you, eat what is set before you;9heal the sick in it and say to them, `The kingdom of God has come near to you.'

    Advent Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Bar 5:1-9

    Jerusalem, take off your robe of mourning and misery;
    put on the splendor of glory from God forever:
    wrapped in the cloak of justice from God,
    bear on your head the mitre
    that displays the glory of the eternal name.
    For God will show all the earth your splendor:
    you will be named by God forever
    the peace of justice, the glory of God's worship.
    Up, Jerusalem! stand upon the heights;
    look to the east and see your children
    gathered from the east and the west
    at the word of the Holy One,
    rejoicing that they are remembered by God.
    Led away on foot by their enemies they left you:
    but God will bring them back to you
    borne aloft in glory as on royal thrones.
    For God has commanded
    that every lofty mountain be made low,
    and that the age-old depths and gorges
    be filled to level ground,
    that Israel may advance secure in the glory of God.
    The forests and every fragrant kind of tree
    have overshadowed Israel at God's command;
    for God is leading Israel in joy
    by the light of his glory,
    with his mercy and justice for company.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 126:1-2, 2-3, 4-5, 6.

    R. (3)
    The Lord has done great things for us;we are filled with joy.
    When the LORD brought back the captives of Zion,
    we were like men dreaming.
    Then our mouth was filled with laughter,
    and our tongue with rejoicing.
    R.The Lord has done great things for us;we are filled with joy.
    Then they said among the nations,
    "The LORD has done great things for them."
    The LORD has done great things for us;
    we are glad indeed.
    R.The Lord has done great things for us;we are filled with joy.
    Restore our fortunes, O LORD,
    like the torrents in the southern desert.
    Those who sow in tears
    shall reap rejoicing.
    R.The Lord has done great things for us;we are filled with joy.
    Although they go forth weeping,
    carrying the seed to be sown,
    They shall come back rejoicing,
    carrying their sheaves.
    R.The Lord has done great things for us;we are filled with joy.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Phil 1:4-6, 8-11

    Brothers and sisters:
    I pray always with joy in my every prayer for all of you,
    because of your partnership for the gospel
    from the first day until now.
    I am confident of this,
    that the one who began a good work in you
    will continue to complete it
    until the day of Christ Jesus.
    God is my witness,
    how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.
    And this is my prayer:
    that your love may increase ever more and more
    in knowledge and every kind of perception,
    to discern what is of value,
    so that you may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ,
    filled with the fruit of righteousness
    that comes through Jesus Christ
    for the glory and praise of God.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 3:1-6

    In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar,
    when Pontius Pilate was governor of Judea,
    and Herod was tetrarch of Galilee,
    and his brother Philip tetrarch of the region
    of Ituraea and Trachonitis,
    and Lysanias was tetrarch of Abilene,
    during the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas,
    the word of God came to John the son of Zechariah in the desert.
    John went throughout the whole region of the Jordan,
    proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins,
    as it is written in the book of the words of the prophet Isaiah:
    A voice of one crying out in the desert:
    "Prepare the way of the Lord,
    make straight his paths.
    Every valley shall be filled
    and every mountain and hill shall be made low.
    The winding roads shall be made straight,
    and the rough ways made smooth,
    and all flesh shall see the salvation of God."
