  • First Reading: Malachi 3:1-4, 23-24

    1 Behold I send my angel, and he shall prepare the way before my face. And presently the Lord, whom you seek, and the angel of the testament, whom you desire, shall come to his temple. Behold he cometh, saith the Lord of hosts.
    2 And who shall be able to think of the day of his coming? and who shall stand to see him? for he is like a refining fire, and like the fuller' s herb:
    3 And he shall sit refining and cleansing the silver, and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and shall refine them as gold, and as silver, and they shall offer sacrifices to the Lord in justice.
    4 And the sacrifice of Juda and of Jerusalem shall please the Lord, as in the days of old, and in the ancient years.

  • Psalm: Psalms 25:4-5ab,8-9,10,14

    4 Let all them be confounded that act unjust things without cause. shew, O Lord, thy ways to me, and teach me thy paths.
    5 ab Direct me in thy truth, and teach me; for thou art God my Saviour; and on thee have I waited all the day long.
    8 The Lord is sweet and righteous: therefore he will give a law to sinners in the way.
    9 He will guide the mild in judgment: he will teach the meek his ways.
    10 All the ways of the Lord are mercy and truth, to them that seek after his covenant and his testimonies.
    14 The Lord is a firmament to them that fear him: and his covenant shall be made manifest to them.

  • Gospel: Luke 1:57-66

    57 Now Elizabeth' s full time of being delivered was come, and she brought forth a son.
    58 And her neighbours and kinsfolks heard that the Lord had shewed his great mercy towards her, and they congratulated with her.
    59 And it came to pass, that on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child, and they called him by his father' s name Zachary.
    60 And his mother answering, said: Not so; but he shall be called John.
    61 And they said to her: There is none of thy kindred that is called by this name.
    62 And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called.
    63 And demanding a writing table, he wrote, saying: John is his name. And they all wondered.
    64 And immediately his mouth was opened, and his tongue loosed, and he spoke, blessing God.
    65 And fear came upon all their neighbours; and all these things were noised abroad over all the hill country of Judea.
    66 And all they that had heard them laid them up in their heart, saying: What an one, think ye, shall this child be? For the hand of the Lord was with him.
