    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    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."

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    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.

    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Jl 1:13-15; 2:1-2

    Gird yourselves and weep, O priests!
    wail, O ministers of the altar!
    Come, spend the night in sackcloth,
    O ministers of my God!
    The house of your God is deprived
    of offering and libation.
    Proclaim a fast,
    call an assembly;
    Gather the elders,
    all who dwell in the land,
    Into the house of the LORD, your God,
    and cry to the LORD!

    Alas, the day!
    for near is the day of the LORD,
    and it comes as ruin from the Almighty.

    Blow the trumpet in Zion,
    sound the alarm on my holy mountain!
    Let all who dwell in the land tremble,
    for the day of the LORD is coming;
    Yes, it is near, a day of darkness and of gloom,
    a day of clouds and somberness!
    Like dawn spreading over the mountains,
    a people numerous and mighty!
    Their like has not been from of old,
    nor will it be after them,
    even to the years of distant generations.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 9:2-3, 6 and 16, 8-9

    R. (9) The Lord will judge the world with justice.
    I will give thanks to you, O LORD, with all my heart;
    I will declare all your wondrous deeds.
    I will be glad and exult in you;
    I will sing praise to your name, Most High.
    R. The Lord will judge the world with justice.
    You rebuked the nations and destroyed the wicked;
    their name you blotted out forever and ever.
    The nations are sunk in the pit they have made;
    in the snare they set, their foot is caught.
    R. The Lord will judge the world with justice.
    But the LORD sits enthroned forever;
    he has set up his throne for judgment.
    He judges the world with justice;
    he governs the peoples with equity.
    R. The Lord will judge the world with justice.

    Alleluia Jn 12:31b-32

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Open our hearts, O Lord,
    to listen to the words of your Son.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Lk 11:15-26

    When Jesus had driven out a demon, some of the crowd said:
    "By the power of Beelzebul, the prince of demons,
    he drives out demons."
    Others, to test him, asked him for a sign from heaven.
    But he knew their thoughts and said to them,
    "Every kingdom divided against itself will be laid waste
    and house will fall against house.
    And if Satan is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand?
    For you say that it is by Beelzebul that I drive out demons.
    If I, then, drive out demons by Beelzebul,
    by whom do your own people drive them out?
    Therefore they will be your judges.
    But if it is by the finger of God that I drive out demons,
    then the Kingdom of God has come upon you.
    When a strong man fully armed guards his palace,
    his possessions are safe.
    But when one stronger than he attacks and overcomes him,
    he takes away the armor on which he relied
    and distributes the spoils.
    Whoever is not with me is against me,
    and whoever does not gather with me scatters.

    "When an unclean spirit goes out of someone,
    it roams through arid regions searching for rest
    but, finding none, it says,
    'I shall return to my home from which I came.'
    But upon returning, it finds it swept clean and put in order.
    Then it goes and brings back seven other spirits
    more wicked than itself who move in and dwell there,
    and the last condition of that man is worse than the first."
