    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.

    Gal 2:1-2, 7-14

    Brothers and sisters:
    After fourteen years I again went up to Jerusalem with Barnabas,
    taking Titus along also.
    I went up in accord with a revelation,
    and I presented to them the Gospel that I preach to the Gentiles--
    but privately to those of repute--
    so that I might not be running, or have run, in vain.
    On the contrary,
    when they saw that I had been entrusted with the Gospel to the uncircumcised,
    just as Peter to the circumcised,
    for the one who worked in Peter for an apostolate to the circumcised
    worked also in me for the Gentiles,
    and when they recognized the grace bestowed upon me,
    James and Cephas and John,
    who were reputed to be pillars,
    gave me and Barnabas their right hands in partnership,
    that we should go to the Gentiles
    and they to the circumcised.
    Only, we were to be mindful of the poor,
    which is the very thing I was eager to do.

    And when Cephas came to Antioch,
    I opposed him to his face because he clearly was wrong.
    For, until some people came from James,
    he used to eat with the Gentiles;
    but when they came, he began to draw back and separated himself,
    because he was afraid of the circumcised.
    And the rest of the Jews acted hypocritically along with him,
    with the result that even Barnabas
    was carried away by their hypocrisy.
    But when I saw that they were not on the right road
    in line with the truth of the Gospel,
    I said to Cephas in front of all,
    "If you, though a Jew,
    are living like a Gentile and not like a Jew,
    how can you compel the Gentiles to live like Jews?"


    Ps 117:1bc, 2

    R. Go out to all the world, and tell the Good News.
    Praise the LORD, all you nations,
    glorify him, all you peoples!
    R. Go out to all the world, and tell the Good News.
    For steadfast is his kindness toward us,
    and the fidelity of the LORD endures forever.
    R. Go out to all the world, and tell the Good News.


    Lk 11:1-4

    Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when he had finished,
    one of his disciples said to him,
    "Lord, teach us to pray just as John taught his disciples."
    He said to them, "When you pray, say:

    Father, hallowed be your name,
    your Kingdom come.
    Give us each day our daily bread
    and forgive us our sins
    for we ourselves forgive everyone in debt to us,
    and do not subject us to the final test."
