    Rom 8:28-30

    Brothers and sisters:
    We know that all things work for good for those who love God,
    who are called according to his purpose.
    For those he foreknew he also predestined
    to be conformed to the image of his Son,
    so that he might be the firstborn
    among many brothers.
    And those he predestined he also called;
    and those he called he also justified;
    and those he justified he also glorified.


    Ps 13:6ab, 6c

    R. (Isaiah 61:10) With delight I rejoice in the Lord.
    Though I trusted in your mercy,
    let my heart rejoice in your salvation.
    R. With delight I rejoice in the Lord.
    Let me sing of the LORD, "He has been good to me."
    R. With delight I rejoice in the Lord.


    Mt 1:1-16, 18-23

    The Book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ,
    the son of David, the son of Abraham.

    Abraham became the father of Isaac,
    Isaac the father of Jacob,
    Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers.
    Judah became the father of Perez and Zerah,
    whose mother was Tamar.
    Perez became the father of Hezron,
    Hezron the father of Ram,
    Ram the father of Amminadab.
    Amminadab became the father of Nahshon,
    Nahshon the father of Salmon,
    Salmon the father of Boaz,
    whose mother was Rahab.
    Boaz became the father of Obed,
    whose mother was Ruth.
    Obed became the father of Jesse,
    Jesse the father of David the king.

    David became the father of Solomon,
    whose mother had been the wife of Uriah.
    Solomon became the father of Rehoboam,
    Rehoboam the father of Abijah,
    Abijah the father of Asaph.
    Asaph became the father of Jehoshaphat,
    Jehoshaphat the father of Joram,
    Joram the father of Uzziah.
    Uzziah became the father of Jotham,
    Jotham the father of Ahaz,
    Ahaz the father of Hezekiah.
    Hezekiah became the father of Manasseh,
    Manasseh the father of Amos,
    Amos the father of Josiah.
    Josiah became the father of Jechoniah and his brothers
    at the time of the Babylonian exile.

    After the Babylonian exile,

    Eleazar became the father of Matthan,
    Matthan the father of Jacob,
    Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary.
    Of her was born Jesus who is called the Christ.

    Now this is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about.
    When his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph,
    but before they lived together,
    she was found with child through the Holy Spirit.
    Joseph her husband, since he was a righteous man,
    yet unwilling to expose her to shame,
    decided to divorce her quietly.
    Such was his intention when, behold,
    the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said,
    "Joseph, son of David,
    do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home.
    For it is through the Holy Spirit
    that this child has been conceived in her.
    She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus,
    because he will save his people from their sins."
    All this took place to fulfill
    what the Lord had said through the prophet:

    Behold, the virgin shall be with child and bear a son,
    and they shall name him Emmanuel,

    which means "God is with us."


    Ordinary Time.


    1 Cor 5:1-8

    Brothers and sisters:
    It is widely reported that there is immorality among you,
    and immorality of a kind not found even among pagans?
    a man living with his father's wife.
    And you are inflated with pride.
    Should you not rather have been sorrowful?
    The one who did this deed should be expelled from your midst.
    I, for my part, although absent in body but present in spirit,
    have already, as if present,
    pronounced judgment on the one who has committed this deed,
    in the name of our Lord Jesus:
    when you have gathered together and I am with you in spirit
    with the power of the Lord Jesus,
    you are to deliver this man to Satan
    for the destruction of his flesh,
    so that his spirit may be saved on the day of the Lord.

    Your boasting is not appropriate.
    Do you not know that a little yeast leavens all the dough?
    Clear out the old yeast, so that you may become a fresh batch of dough,
    inasmuch as you are unleavened.
    For our Paschal Lamb, Christ, has been sacrificed.
    Therefore, let us celebrate the feast,
    not with the old yeast, the yeast of malice and wickedness,
    but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.


    Ps 5:5-6, 7, 12

    R. (9) Lead me in your justice, Lord.
    For you, O God, delight not in wickedness;
    no evil man remains with you;
    the arrogant may not stand in your sight.
    You hate all evildoers.
    R. Lead me in your justice, Lord.
    You destroy all who speak falsehood;
    The bloodthirsty and the deceitful
    the LORD abhors.
    R. Lead me in your justice, Lord.
    But let all who take refuge in you
    be glad and exult forever.
    Protect them, that you may be the joy
    of those who love your name.
    R. Lead me in your justice, Lord.


    Lk 6:6-11

    On a certain sabbath Jesus went into the synagogue and taught,
    and there was a man there whose right hand was withered.
    The scribes and the Pharisees watched him closely
    to see if he would cure on the sabbath
    so that they might discover a reason to accuse him.
    But he realized their intentions
    and said to the man with the withered hand,
    "Come up and stand before us."
    And he rose and stood there.
    Then Jesus said to them,
    "I ask you, is it lawful to do good on the sabbath
    rather than to do evil,
    to save life rather than to destroy it?"
    Looking around at them all, he then said to him,
    "Stretch out your hand."
    He did so and his hand was restored.
    But they became enraged
    and discussed together what they might do to Jesus.
