    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.

    Mal 3:13-20b

    You have defied me in word, says the LORD,
    yet you ask, “What have we spoken against you?”
    You have said, “It is vain to serve God,
    and what do we profit by keeping his command,
    And going about in penitential dress
    in awe of the LORD of hosts?
    Rather must we call the proud blessed;
    for indeed evildoers prosper,
    and even tempt God with impunity.”
    Then they who fear the LORD spoke with one another,
    and the LORD listened attentively;
    And a record book was written before him
    of those who fear the LORD and trust in his name.
    And they shall be mine, says the LORD of hosts,
    my own special possession, on the day I take action.
    And I will have compassion on them,
    as a man has compassion on his son who serves him.
    Then you will again see the distinction
    between the just and the wicked;
    Between the one who serves God,
    and the one who does not serve him.
    For lo, the day is coming, blazing like an oven,
    when all the proud and all evildoers will be stubble,
    And the day that is coming will set them on fire,
    leaving them neither root nor branch,
    says the LORD of hosts.
    But for you who fear my name, there will arise
    the sun of justice with its healing rays.


    PS 1:1-2, 3, 4 and 6

    R. (Ps 40:5a) Blessed are they who hope in the Lord.
    Blessed the man who follows not
    the counsel of the wicked
    Nor walks in the way of sinners,
    nor sits in the company of the insolent,
    But delights in the law of the LORD
    and meditates on his law day and night.
    R. Blessed are they who hope in the Lord.
    He is like a tree
    planted near running water,
    That yields its fruit in due season,
    and whose leaves never fade.
    Whatever he does, prospers.
    R. Blessed are they who hope in the Lord.
    Not so the wicked, not so;
    they are like chaff which the wind drives away.
    For the LORD watches over the way of the just,
    but the way of the wicked vanishes.
    R. Blessed are they who hope in the Lord.

    Alleluia See Acts 16:14b

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


    Lk 11:5-13

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    "Suppose one of you has a friend
    to whom he goes at midnight and says,
    'Friend, lend me three loaves of bread,
    for a friend of mine has arrived at my house from a journey
    and I have nothing to offer him,'
    and he says in reply from within,
    'Do not bother me;the door has already been locked
    and my children and I are already in bed.
    I cannot get up to give you anything.'
    I tell you, if he does not get up to give him the loaves
    because of their friendship,
    he will get up to give him whatever he needs
    because of his persistence.

    "And I tell you, ask and you will receive;
    seek and you will find;
    knock and the door will be opened to you.
    For everyone who asks, receives;
    and the one who seeks, finds;
    and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
    What father among you would hand his son a snake
    when he asks for a fish?
    Or hand him a scorpion when he asks for an egg?
    If you then, who are wicked,
    know how to give good gifts to your children,
    how much more will the Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit
    to those who ask him?"
