Daily Liturgical Readings

Behold, I am sending my messenger ahead of you, he will prepare your way before you

Third Sunday of Advent

1st Reading – Isaiah 35:1-6A, 10

The desert and the parched land will exult; the steppe will rejoice and bloom.

They will bloom with abundant flowers, and rejoice with joyful song. The glory of Lebanon will be given to them, the splendor of Carmel and Sharon; they will see the glory of the LORD, the splendor of our God.

Show us Lord, your love

First Sunday of Advent

1st Reading – Isaiah 2:1-5

This is what Isaiah, son of Amoz, saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.

In days to come, the mountain of the LORD’s house shall be established as the highest mountain and raised above the hills. All nations shall stream toward it; many peoples shall come and say: “Come, let us climb the LORD’s mountain, to the house of the God of Jacob, that he may instruct us in his ways, and we may walk in his paths.” For from Zion shall go forth instruction, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

The Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe

1st Reading – 2 Samuel 5:1-3

In those days, all the tribes of Israel came to David in Hebron and said:
“Here we are, your bone and your flesh.

In days past, when Saul was our king, it was you who led the Israelites out and brought them back. And the LORD said to you, ‘You shall shepherd my people Israel and shall be commander of Israel.’”

When all the elders of Israel came to David in Hebron, King David made an agreement with them there before the LORD, and they anointed him king of Israel.

 

HE is not God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive.

Thirty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time

1st Reading – 2 Maccabees 7:1-2, 9-14

It happened that seven brothers with their mother were arrested and tortured with whips and scourges by the king, to force them to eat pork in violation of God’s law.

One of the brothers, speaking for the others, said: “What do you expect to achieve by questioning us? We are ready to die rather than transgress the laws of our ancestors.”

Everyday I will bless you and I will praise your name forever and ever

Thirty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time

1st Reading – Wisdom 11:22-12:2

Before the LORD the whole universe is as a grain from a balance or a drop of morning dew come down upon the earth.

But you have mercy on all, because you can do all things; and you overlook people’s sins that they may repent.

For you love all things that are and loathe nothing that you have made; for what you hated, you would not have fashioned.

The Lord hears the cry of the poor

Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

1st Reading – Sirach 35:15BC-17, 20-22AB

The LORD is a God of justice, who knows no favorites.

Though not unduly partial toward the weak, yet he hears the cry of the oppressed.

The Lord is not deaf to the wail of the orphan, nor to the widow when she pours out her complaint.

The one who serves God willingly is heard; his petition reaches the heavens.

"Our help is from the Lord, who made heaven and earth"

Twenty-ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time

1st Reading – Exodus 17:8-13

In those days, Amalek came and waged war against Israel.

Moses, therefore, said to Joshua, “Pick out certain men, and tomorrow go out and engage Amalek in battle. I will be standing on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hand.”

So Joshua did as Moses told him: he engaged Amalek in battle after Moses had climbed to the top of the hill with Aaron and Hur.

Lord, increase our faith

Twenty-seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

1st Reading – Habakkuk 1:2-3; 2:2-4

How long, O LORD? I cry for help but you do not listen! I cry out to you, “Violence!” but you do not intervene.

Why do you let me see ruin; why must I look at misery? Destruction and violence are before me; there is strife, and clamorous discord.

Then the LORD answered me and said: Write down the vision clearly upon the tablets, so that one can read it readily.

No servant can serve two masters

Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time

1st Reading – Amos 8:4-7

Hear this, you who trample upon the needy and destroy the poor of the land!

“When will the new moon be over,” you ask, “that we may sell our grain and the sabbath, that we may display the wheat? We will diminish the ephah add to the shekel and fix our scales for cheating!

We will buy the lowly for silver and the poor for a pair of sandals; even the refuse of the wheat we will sell!”

No longer as a slave but more than a slave, a brother

Twenty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time

1st Reading – Wisdom 9:13-18B

Who can know God’s counsel, or who can conceive what the LORD intends?

For the deliberations of mortals are timid, and unsure are our plans.

For the corruptible body burdens the soul and the earthen shelter weighs down the mind that has many concerns.

And scarce do we guess the things on earth, and what is within our grasp we find with difficulty; but when things are in heaven, who can search them out?
