  • First Reading: Zephaniah 3:14-18a

    14 Give praise, O daughter of Sion: shout, O Israel: be glad, and rejoice with all thy heart, O daughter of Jerusalem.
    15 The Lord hath taken away thy judgment, he hath turned away thy enemies: the king of Israel the Lord is in the midst of thee, thou shalt fear evil no more.
    16 In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem: Fear not: to Sion: Let not thy hands be weakened.
    17 The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty, he will save: he will rejoice over thee with gladness, he will be silent in his love, he will be joyful over thee in praise.
    18 The triflers that were departed from the law, I will gather together, because they were of thee: that thou mayest no more suffer reproach for them.

  • Psalm: Isaiah 12:2-3, 4, 5-6.

    2 Behold, God is my saviour, I will deal confidently, and will not fear: O because the Lord is my strength, and my praise, and he is become my salvation.
    3 You shall draw waters with joy out of the saviour's fountains:
    4 And you shall say in that day: Praise ye the Lord, and call upon his name: make his works known among the people: remember that his name is high.
    5 Sing ye to the Lord, for he hath done great things: shew this forth in all the earth.
    6 Rejoice, and praise, O thou habitation of Sion: for great is he that is in the midst of thee, the Holy One of Israel.

  • Second Reading: Philippians 4:4-7

    4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again, I say, rejoice.
    5 Let your modesty be known to all men. The Lord is nigh.
    6 Be nothing solicitous; but in every thing, by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God.
    7 And the peace of God, which surpasseth all understanding, keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

  • Gospel: Luke 3:10-18

    10 And the people asked him, saying: What then shall we do?
    11 And he answering, said to them: He that hath two coats, let him give to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do in like manner.
    12 And the publicans also came to be baptized, and said to him: Master, what shall we do?
    13 But he said to them: Do nothing more than that which is appointed you.
    14 And the soldiers also asked him, saying: And what shall we do? And he said to them: Do violence to no man; neither calumniate any man; and be content with your pay.
    15 And as the people were of opinion, and all were thinking in their hearts of John, that perhaps he might be the Christ;
    16 John answered, saying unto all: I indeed baptize you with water; but there shall come one mightier than I, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to loose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
    17 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his barn; but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.
    18 And many other things exhorting, did he preach to the people.
