  • First Reading: Jeremiah 23:5-8

    5 Behold the days come, saith the Lord, and I will raise up to David a just branch: and a king shall reign, and shall be wise, and shall execute judgement and justice in the earth.
    6 In those days shall Juda be saved, and Israel shall dwell confidently: and this is the name that they shall call him: the Lord our just one.
    7 Therefore behold the days to come, saith the Lord, and they shall say no more: The Lord liveth, who brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt:
    8 But the Lord liveth, who hath brought out, and brought hither the seed of the house of Israel from the land of the north, and out of all the lands, to which I had cast them forth: and they shall dwell in their own land.

  • Psalm: Psalms 72:1-2, 12-13, 18-19

    1 Give to the king thy judgment, O God: and to the king's son thy justice:
    2 To judge thy people with justice, and thy poor with judgment.
    12 For he shall deliver the poor from the mighty: and the needy that had no helper.
    13 He shall spare the poor and needy: and he shall save the souls of the poor.
    18 Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, who alone doth wonderful things.
    19 And blessed be the name of his majesty for ever: and the whole earth shall be filled with his majesty. So be it. So be it.

  • Gospel: Matthew 1:18-25

    18 Now the generation of Christ was in this wise. When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child, of the Holy Ghost.
    19 Whereupon Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing publicly to expose her, was minded to put her away privately.
    20 But while he thought on these things, behold the angel of the Lord appeared to him in his sleep, saying: Joseph, son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife, for that which is conceived in her, is of the Holy Ghost.
    21 And she shall bring forth a son: and thou shalt call his name JESUS. For he shall save his people from their sins.
    22 Now all this was done that it might be fulfilled which the Lord spoke by the prophet, saying:
    23 Behold a virgin shall be with child, and bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
    24 And Joseph rising up from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him, and took unto him his wife.
    25 And he knew her not till she brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.
