  • First Reading: Sirach 3:2-6, 12-14

    2 Children, hear the judgment of your father, and so do that you may be saved.
    3 For God hath made the father honourable to the children: and seeking the judgment of the mothers, hath confirmed it upon the children.
    4 He that loveth God, shall obtain pardon for his sins by prayer, and shall refrain himself from them, and shall be heard in the prayer of days.
    5 And he that honoureth his mother is as one that layeth up a treasure.
    6 He that honoureth his father shall have joy in his own children, and in the day of his prayer he shall be heard.
    12 Glory not in the dishonour of thy father: for his shame is no glory to thee.
    13 For the glory of a man is from the honour of his father, and a father without honour is the disgrace of the son.
    14 Son, support the old age of thy father, and grieve him not in his life.

  • 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.

  • Second Reading: Colossians 3:12-21

    12 Put ye on therefore, as the elect of God, holy, and beloved, the bowels of mercy, benignity, humility, modesty, patience:
    13 Bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if any have a complaint against another: even as the Lord hath forgiven you, so do you also.
    14 But above all these things have charity, which is the bond of perfection:
    15 And let the peace of Christ rejoice in your hearts, wherein also you are called in one body: and be ye thankful.
    16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you abundantly, in all wisdom: teaching and admonishing one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual canticles, singing in grace in your hearts to God.
    17 All whatsoever you do in word or in work, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
    18 Wives, be subject to your husbands, as it behoveth in the Lord.
    19 Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter towards them.
    20 Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing to the Lord.
    21 Fathers, provoke not your children to indignation, lest they be discouraged.

  • 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 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.
