    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Is 42:1-4, 6-7

    Thus says the LORD:
    Here is my servant whom I uphold,
    my chosen one with whom I am pleased,
    upon whom I have put my spirit;
    he shall bring forth justice to the nations,
    not crying out, not shouting,
    not making his voice heard in the street.
    a bruised reed he shall not break,
    and a smoldering wick he shall not quench,
    until he establishes justice on the earth;
    the coastlands will wait for his teaching.
    I, the LORD, have called you for the victory of justice,
    I have grasped you by the hand;
    I formed you, and set you
    as a covenant of the people,
    a light for the nations,
    to open the eyes of the blind,
    to bring out prisoners from confinement,
    and from the dungeon, those who live in darkness.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 29:1-2, 3-4, 3, 9-10.

    R. (11b)
    The Lord will bless his people with peace.
    Give to the LORD, you sons of God,
    give to the LORD glory and praise,
    Give to the LORD the glory due his name;
    adore the LORD in holy attire.
    R.The Lord will bless his people with peace.
    The voice of the LORD is over the waters,
    the LORD, over vast waters.
    The voice of the LORD is mighty;
    the voice of the LORD is majestic.
    R.The Lord will bless his people with peace.
    The God of glory thunders,
    and in his temple all say, "Glory!"
    The LORD is enthroned above the flood;
    the LORD is enthroned as king forever.
    R.The Lord will bless his people with peace.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 10:34-38

    Peter proceeded to speak to those gathered
    in the house of Cornelius, saying:
    "In truth, I see that God shows no partiality.
    Rather, in every nation whoever fears him and acts uprightly
    is acceptable to him.
    You know the word that he sent to the Israelites
    as he proclaimed peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all,
    what has happened all over Judea,
    beginning in Galilee after the baptism
    that John preached,
    how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth
    with the Holy Spirit and power.
    He went about doing good
    and healing all those oppressed by the devil,
    for God was with him."

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 3:15-16, 21-22

    The people were filled with expectation,
    and all were asking in their hearts
    whether John might be the Christ.
    John answered them all, saying,
    "I am baptizing you with water,
    but one mightier than I is coming.
    I am not worthy to loosen the thongs of his sandals.
    He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire."
    After all the people had been baptized
    and Jesus also had been baptized and was praying,
    heaven was opened and the Holy Spirit descended upon him
    in bodily form like a dove.
    And a voice came from heaven,
    "You are my beloved Son;
    with you I am well pleased."
