  • First Reading: Isaiah 61:1-3a, 6a, 8b-9

    1 The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the Lord hath anointed me: he hath sent me to preach to the meek, to heal the contrite of heart, and to preach a release to the captives, and deliverance to them that are shut up.
    2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God: to comfort all that mourn:
    3 a To appoint to the mourners of Sion, and to give them a crown for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, a garment of praise for the spirit of grief: and they shall be called in it the mighty ones of justice, the planting of the Lord to glorify hint.
    6 a But you shall be called the priests of the Lord: to you it shall be said: Ye ministers of our God: you shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and you shall pride yourselves in their glory.
    8 b For I am the Lord that love judgment, and hate robbery in a holocaust: and I will make their work in truth, and I will make a perpetual covenant with them.
    9 And they shall know their seed among the Gentiles, and their offspring in the midst of peoples: all that shall see them, shall know them, that these are the seed which the Lord hath blessed.

  • Psalm: Psalms 89:21-22,25,27

    21 I have found David my servant: with my holy oil I have anointed him.
    22 For my hand shall help him: and my arm shall strengthen him.
    25 And my truth and my mercy shall be with him: and in my name shall his horn be exalted.
    27 He shall cry out to me: Thou art my father: my God, and the support of my salvation.

  • Second Reading: Revelation 1:5-8

    5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth, who hath loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
    6 And hath made us a kingdom, and priests to God and his Father, to him be glory and empire for ever and ever. Amen.
    7 Behold, he cometh with the clouds, and every eye shall see him, and they also that pierced him. And all the tribes of the earth shall bewail themselves because of him. Even so. Amen.
    8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, saith the Lord God, who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.

  • Gospel: Luke 4:16-21

    16 And he came to Nazareth, where he was brought up: and he went into the synagogue, according to his custom, on the sabbath day; and he rose up to read.
    17 And the book of Isaias the prophet was delivered unto him. And as he unfolded the book, he found the place where it was written:
    18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me. Wherefore he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor, he hath sent me to heal the contrite of heart,
    19 To preach deliverance to the captives, and sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of reward.
    20 And when he had folded the book, he restored it to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him.
    21 And he began to say to them: This day is fulfilled this scripture in your ears.
