    Luke 1:46-55

    46And Mary said, "My soul magnifies the Lord, 47and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, 48for he has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden. For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed;49for he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name. 50And his mercy is on those who fear him from generation to generation. 51He has shown strength with his arm, he has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts, 52he has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted those of low degree;53he has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he has sent empty away. 54He has helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy, 55as he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his posterity for ever."


    Luke 1:26-38

    26In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, 27to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David;and the virgin's name was Mary. 28And he came to her and said, "Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you!"29But she was greatly troubled at the saying, and considered in her mind what sort of greeting this might be. 30And the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. 31And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. 32He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High;and the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, 33and he will reign over the house of Jacob for ever;and of his kingdom there will be no end." 34And Mary said to the angel, "How shall this be, since I have no husband?" 35And the angel said to her, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you;therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God. 36And behold, your kinswoman Elizabeth in her old age has also conceived a son;and this is the sixth month with her who was called barren. 37For with God nothing will be impossible." 38And Mary said, "Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord;let it be to me according to your word." And the angel departed from her.

    Bar 4:5-12, 27-29

    Fear not, my people!
    Remember, Israel,
    You were sold to the nations
    not for your destruction;
    It was because you angered God
    that you were handed over to your foes.
    For you provoked your Maker
    with sacrifices to demons, to no-gods;
    You forsook the Eternal God who nourished you,
    and you grieved Jerusalem who fostered you.
    She indeed saw coming upon you
    the anger of God;and she said:

    “Hear, you neighbors of Zion!
    God has brought great mourning upon me,
    For I have seen the captivity
    that the Eternal God has brought
    upon my sons and daughters.
    With joy I fostered them;
    but with mourning and lament I let them go.
    Let no one gloat over me, a widow,
    bereft of many:
    For the sins of my children I am left desolate,
    because they turned from the law of God.

    Fear not, my children;call out to God!
    He who brought this upon you will remember you.
    As your hearts have been disposed to stray from God,
    turn now ten times the more to seek him;
    For he who has brought disaster upon you
    will, in saving you, bring you back enduring joy.”


    PS 69:33-35, 36-37

    R. (34) The Lord listens to the poor.
    “See, you lowly ones, and be glad;
    you who seek God, may your hearts revive!
    For the LORD hears the poor,
    and his own who are in bonds he spurns not.
    Let the heavens and the earth praise him,
    the seas and whatever moves in them!”
    R. The Lord listens to the poor.
    For God will save Zion
    and rebuild the cities of Judah.
    They shall dwell in the land and own it,
    and the descendants of his servants shall inherit it,
    and those who love his name shall inhabit it.
    R. The Lord listens to the poor.


    Lk 10:17-24

    The seventy-two disciples returned rejoicing and said to Jesus,
    "Lord, even the demons are subject to us because of your name."
    Jesus said, "I have observed Satan fall like lightning from the sky.
    Behold, I have given you the power
    'to tread upon serpents' and scorpions
    and upon the full force of the enemy
    and nothing will harm you.
    Nevertheless, do not rejoice because the spirits are subject to you,
    but rejoice because your names are written in heaven."

    At that very moment he rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said,
    "I give you praise, Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
    for although you have hidden these things
    from the wise and the learned
    you have revealed them to the childlike.
    Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will.
    All things have been handed over to me by my Father.
    No one knows who the Son is except the Father,
    and who the Father is except the Son
    and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him."

    Turning to the disciples in private he said,
    "Blessed are the eyes that see what you see.
    For I say to you,
    many prophets and kings desired to see what you see,
    but did not see it,
    and to hear what you hear, but did not hear it."
