  • First Reading: Revelation 11:19a; 12:1-6a, 10ab

    11 And the temple of God was opened in heaven: and the ark of his testament was seen in his temple

    1 And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars:
    2 And being with child, she cried travailing in birth, and was in pain to be delivered.
    3 And there was seen another sign in heaven: and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads, and ten horns: and on his head seven diadems:
    4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to be delivered; that, when she should be delivered, he might devour her son.
    5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with an iron rod: and her son was taken up to God, and to his throne.
    6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she had a place prepared by God, that there they should feed her a thousand two hundred sixty days.
    10 And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying: Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ.

  • Psalm: Judith 13:18bcde, 19

    18 Blessed art thou, O daughter, by the Lord the most high God, above all women upon the earth. [24 ] Blessed be the Lord who made heaven and earth,
    19 Because he hath so magnified thy name this day, that thy praise shall not depart out of the mouth of men who shall be mindful of the power of the Lord for ever.

  • Gospel: Luke 1:39-47

    39 And Mary rising up in those days, went into the hill country with haste into a city of Juda.
    40 And she entered into the house of Zachary, and saluted Elizabeth.
    41 And it came to pass, that when Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the infant leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:
    42 And she cried out with a loud voice, and said: Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.
    43 And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
    44 For behold as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy.
    45 And blessed art thou that hast believed, because those things shall be accomplished that were spoken to thee by the Lord.
    46 And Mary said: My soul doth magnify the Lord.
    47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
