  • Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe 2019:


    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."


    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.


    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."

    Is 41:13-20

    I am the LORD, your God,
    who grasp your right hand;
    It is I who say to you, "Fear not,
    I will help you."
    Fear not, O worm Jacob,
    O maggot Israel;
    I will help you, says the LORD;
    your redeemer is the Holy One of Israel.
    I will make of you a threshing sledge,
    sharp, new, and double-edged,
    To thresh the mountains and crush them,
    to make the hills like chaff.
    When you winnow them, the wind shall carry them off
    and the storm shall scatter them.
    But you shall rejoice in the LORD,
    and glory in the Holy One of Israel.

    The afflicted and the needy seek water in vain,
    their tongues are parched with thirst.
    I, the LORD, will answer them;
    I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them.
    I will open up rivers on the bare heights,
    and fountains in the broad valleys;
    I will turn the desert into a marshland,
    and the dry ground into springs of water.
    I will plant in the desert the cedar,
    acacia, myrtle, and olive;
    I will set in the wasteland the cypress,
    together with the plane tree and the pine,
    That all may see and know,
    observe and understand,
    That the hand of the LORD has done this,
    the Holy One of Israel has created it.


    Ps 145:1 and 9, 10-11, 12-13ab

    R. (8) The Lord is gracious and merciful;slow to anger, and of great kindness.
    I will extol you, O my God and King,
    and I will bless your name forever and ever.
    The LORD is good to all
    and compassionate toward all his works.
    R. The Lord is gracious and merciful;slow to anger, and of great kindness.
    Let all your works give you thanks, O LORD,
    and let your faithful ones bless you.
    Let them discourse of the glory of your Kingdom
    and speak of your might.
    R. The Lord is gracious and merciful;slow to anger, and of great kindness.
    Let them make known to men your might
    and the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.
    Your Kingdom is a Kingdom for all ages,
    and your dominion endures through all generations.
    R. The Lord is gracious and merciful;slow to anger, and of great kindness.


    Mt 11:11-15

    Jesus said to the crowds:
    "Amen, I say to you,
    among those born of women
    there has been none greater than John the Baptist;
    yet the least in the Kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
    From the days of John the Baptist until now,
    the Kingdom of heaven suffers violence,
    and the violent are taking it by force.
    All the prophets and the law prophesied up to the time of John.
    And if you are willing to accept it,
    he is Elijah, the one who is to come.
    Whoever has ears ought to hear."
