  • First Reading: Joel 3:12-21

    12 Let them arise, and let the nations come up into the valley of Josaphat: for there I will sit to judge all nations round about.
    13 Put ye in the sickles, for the harvest is ripe: come and go down, for the press is full, the fats run over: for their wickedness is multiplied.
    14 Nations, nations in the valley of destruction: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of destruction.
    15 The sun and the moon are darkened, and the stars have withdrawn their shining.
    16 And the Lord shall roar out of Sion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem: and the heavens and the earth shall be moved, and the Lord shall be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.
    17 And you shall know that I am the Lord your God, dwelling in Sion my holy mountain: and Jerusalem shall be holy and strangers shall pass through it no more.
    18 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down sweetness, and the hills shall flow with milk: and waters shall flow through all the rivers of Juda: and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the Lord, and shall water the torrent of thorns.
    19 Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom a wilderness destroyed: because they have done unjustly against the children of Juda, and have shed innocent blood in their land.
    20 And Judea shall be inhabited for ever, and Jerusalem to generation and generation.
    21 And I will cleanse their blood which I had not cleansed: and the Lord will dwell in Sion.

  • Psalm: Psalms 97:1-2, 5-6, 11-12

    1 The Lord hath reigned, let the earth rejoice: let many islands be glad.
    2 Clouds and darkness are round about him: justice and judgment are the establishment of his throne.
    5 The mountains melted like wax, at the presence of the Lord: at the presence of the Lord of all the earth.
    6 The heavens declared his justice: and all people saw his glory.
    11 Light is risen to the just, and joy to the right of heart.
    12 Rejoice, ye just, in the Lord: and give praise to the remembrance of his holiness.

  • Gospel: Luke 11:27-28

    27 And it came to pass, as he spoke these things, a certain woman from the crowd, lifting up her voice, said to him: Blessed is the womb that bore thee, and the paps that gave thee suck.
    28 But he said: Yea rather, blessed are they who hear the word of God, and keep it.
