    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,

    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.


    Col 3:1-11

    Brothers and sisters:
    If you were raised with Christ, seek what is above,
    where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.
    Think of what is above, not of what is on earth.
    For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
    When Christ your life appears,
    then you too will appear with him in glory.

    Put to death, then, the parts of you that are earthly:
    immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire,
    and the greed that is idolatry.
    Because of these the wrath of God is coming upon the disobedient.
    By these you too once conducted yourselves, when you lived in that way.
    But now you must put them all away:
    anger, fury, malice, slander,
    and obscene language out of your mouths.
    Stop lying to one another,
    since you have taken off the old self with its practices
    and have put on the new self,
    which is being renewed, for knowledge,
    in the image of its creator.
    Here there is not Greek and Jew,
    circumcision and uncircumcision,
    barbarian, Scythian, slave, free;
    but Christ is all and in all.


    PS 145:2-3, 10-11, 12-13ab

    R. (9) The Lord is compassionate toward all his works.
    Every day will I bless you,
    and I will praise your name forever and ever.
    Great is the LORD and highly to be praised;
    his greatness is unsearchable.
    R. The Lord is compassionate toward all his works.
    Let all your works give you thanks, O LORD,
    and let your faithful ones bless you.
    Let them discourse of the glory of your Kingdom
    and speak of your might.
    R. The Lord is compassionate toward all his works.
    Making known to men your might
    and the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.
    Your Kingdom is a Kingdom for all ages,
    and your dominion endures through all generations.
    R. The Lord is compassionate toward all his works.


    Lk 6:20-26

    Raising his eyes toward his disciples Jesus said:
    "Blessed are you who are poor,
    for the Kingdom of God is yours.
    Blessed are you who are now hungry,
    for you will be satisfied.
    Blessed are you who are now weeping,
    for you will laugh.
    Blessed are you when people hate you,
    and when they exclude and insult you,
    and denounce your name as evil
    on account of the Son of Man.

    "Rejoice and leap for joy on that day!
    Behold, your reward will be great in heaven.
    For their ancestors treated the prophets
    in the same way.
    But woe to you who are rich,
    for you have received your consolation.
    But woe to you who are filled now,
    for you will be hungry.
    Woe to you who laugh now,
    for you will grieve and weep.
    Woe to you when all speak well of you,
    for their ancestors treated the false
    prophets in this way."
