  • First Reading: Numbers 6:22-27

    22  And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 
    23 Say to Aaron and his sons: Thus shall you bless the children of Israel, and you shall say to them: 
    24 The Lord bless thee, and keep thee. 
    25 The Lord shew his face to thee, and have mercy on thee. 
    26 The Lord turn his countenance to thee, and give thee peace. 
    27 And they shall invoke my name upon the children of Israel, and I will bless them.

  • Psalm: Psalms 30:2, 4, 5-6, 11, 12, 13

    2 In thee, O Lord, have I hoped, let me never be confounded: deliver me in thy justice.
    4 For thou art my strength and my refuge; and for thy names sake thou wilt lead me, and nourish me.
    5 Thou wilt bring me out of this snare, which they have hidden for me: for thou art my protector.
    6 Into thy hands I commend my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O Lord, the God of truth
    11 For my life is wasted with grief: and my years in sighs. My strength is weakened through poverty and my bones are disturbed.
    12 I am become a reproach among all my enemies, and very much to my neighbours; and a fear to my acquaintance. They that saw me without fled from me.
    13 I am forgotten as one dead from the heart. I am become as a vessel that is destroyed.

  • Second Reading: Galatians 4:4-7

    4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent his Son, made of a woman, made under the law:
    5 That he might redeem them who were under the law: that we might receive the adoption of sons.
    6 And because you are sons, God hath sent the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying: Abba, Father.
    7 Therefore now he is not a servant, but a son. And if a son, an heir also through God.

  • Gospel: Luke 2:16-21

    16  And they came with haste; and they found Mary and Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger. 
    17 And seeing, they understood of the word that had been spoken to them concerning this child. 
    18 And all that heard, wondered; and at those things that were told them by the shepherds. 
    19 But Mary kept all these words, pondering them in her heart. 
    20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God, for all the things they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. 
    21 And after eight days were accomplished, that the child should be circumcised, his name was called JESUS, which was called by the angel, before he was conceived in the womb.
