    1 Now when these things were done, the word of the Lord came to Abram by a vision, saying: Fear not, Abram, I am thy protector, and thy reward exceeding great.
    2 And Abram said: Lord God, what wilt thou give me? I shall go without children: and the son of the steward of my house is this Damascus Eliezer.
    3 And Abram added: But to me thou hast not given seed: and lo my servant, born in my house, shall be my heir.
    4 And immediately the word of the Lord came to him, saying: He shall not be thy heir: but he that shall come out of thy bowels, him shalt thou have for thy heir.
    5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said to him: Look up to heaven and number the stars, if thou canst. And he said to him: So shall thy seed be.
    6 Abram believed God, and it was reputed to him unto justice.
    1 And the Lord visited Sara, as he had promised: and fulfilled what he had spoken.
    2 And she conceived and bore a son in her old age, at the time that God had foretold her.
    3 And Abraham called the name of his son, whom Sara bore him, Isaac.

  • Psalm: Psalms 128:1-2,3,4-5

    1 Blessed are all they that fear the Lord: that walk in his ways.
    2 For thou shalt eat the labours of thy hands: blessed art thou, and it shall be well with thee.
    3 Thy wife as a fruitful vine, on the sides of thy house.
    4 Behold, thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord.
    5 May the Lord bless thee out of Sion: and mayest thou see the good things of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.

  • Gospel: Luke 2:41-52

    41 And his parents went every year to Jerusalem, at the solemn day of the pasch,
    42 And when he was twelve years old, they going up into Jerusalem, according to the custom of the feast,
    43 And having fulfilled the days, when they returned, the child Jesus remained in Jerusalem; and his parents knew it not.
    44 And thinking that he was in the company, they came a day' s journey, and sought him among their kinsfolks and acquaintance.
    45 And not finding him, they returned into Jerusalem, seeking him.
    46 And it came to pass, that, after three days, they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, hearing them, and asking them questions.
    47 And all that heard him were astonished at his wisdom and his answers.
    48 And seeing him, they wondered. And his mother said to him: Son, why hast thou done so to us? behold thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.
    49 And he said to them: How is it that you sought me? did you not know, that I must be about my father' s business?
    50 And they understood not the word that he spoke unto them.
    51 And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject to them. And his mother kept all these words in her heart.
    52 And Jesus advanced in wisdom, and age, and grace with God and men.
