    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,
    Jechoniah became the father of Shealtiel,
    Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel,
    Zerubbabel the father of Abiud.
    Abiud became the father of Eliakim,

    Eliud the father of Eleazar.
    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."

    1 Cor 6:1-11

    Brothers and sisters:
    How can any one of you with a case against another
    dare to bring it to the unjust for judgment
    instead of to the holy ones?
    Do you not know that the holy ones will judge the world?
    If the world is to be judged by you,
    are you unqualified for the lowest law courts?
    Do you not know that we will judge angels?
    Then why not everyday matters?
    If, therefore, you have courts for everyday matters,
    do you seat as judges people of no standing in the Church?
    I say this to shame you.
    Can it be that there is not one among you wise enough
    to be able to settle a case between brothers?
    But rather brother goes to court against brother,
    and that before unbelievers?

    Now indeed then it is, in any case,
    a failure on your part that you have lawsuits against one another.
    Why not rather put up with injustice?
    Why not rather let yourselves be cheated?
    Instead, you inflict injustice and cheat, and this to brothers.
    Do you not know that the unjust will not inherit the Kingdom of God?
    Do not be deceived;
    neither fornicators nor idolaters nor adulterers
    nor boy prostitutes nor sodomites nor thieves
    nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor robbers
    will inherit the Kingdom of God.
    That is what some of you used to be;
    but now you have had yourselves washed, you were sanctified,
    you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ
    and in the Spirit of our God.


    Ps 149:1b-2, 3-4, 5-6a and 9b

    R. (see 4) The Lord takes delight in his people.
    Sing to the LORD a new song
    of praise in the assembly of the faithful.
    Let Israel be glad in their maker,
    let the children of Zion rejoice in their king.
    R. The Lord takes delight in his people.
    Let them praise his name in the festive dance,
    let them sing praise to him with timbrel and harp.
    For the LORD loves his people,
    and he adorns the lowly with victory.
    R. The Lord takes delight in his people.
    Let the faithful exult in glory;
    let them sing for joy upon their couches;
    Let the high praises of God be in their throats.
    This is the glory of all his faithful. Alleluia.
    R. The Lord takes delight in his people.


    Lk 6:12-19

    Jesus departed to the mountain to pray,
    and he spent the night in prayer to God.
    When day came, he called his disciples to himself,
    and from them he chose Twelve, whom he also named Apostles:
    Simon, whom he named Peter, and his brother Andrew,
    James, John, Philip, Bartholomew,
    Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus,
    Simon who was called a Zealot,
    and Judas the son of James,
    and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.

    And he came down with them and stood on a stretch of level ground.
    A great crowd of his disciples and a large number of the people
    from all Judea and Jerusalem
    and the coastal region of Tyre and Sidon
    came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases;
    and even those who were tormented by unclean spirits were cured.
    Everyone in the crowd sought to touch him
    because power came forth from him and healed them all.
