  • First Reading: Isaiah 2:1-5

    1 The word that Isaias the son of Amos saw, concerning Juda and Jerusalem.
    2 And in the last days the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be prepared on the top of mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills, and all nations shall flow unto it.
    3 And many people shall go, and say: Come and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob, and he will teach us his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall come forth from Sion, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
    4 And he shall judge the Gentiles, and rebuke many people: and they shall turn their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into sickles: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they be exercised any more to war.
    5 O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the Lord.

  • Psalm: Psalms 122: 1-2, 3-4, 4-5, 6-7, 8-9

    1 I rejoiced at the things that were said to me: We shall go into the house of the Lord.
    2 Our feet were standing in thy courts, O Jerusalem.
    3 Jerusalem, which is built as a city, which is compact together.
    4 For thither did the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord: the testimony of Israel, to praise the name of the Lord.
    5 Because their seats have sat in judgment, seats upon the house of David.
    6 Pray ye for the things that are for the peace of Jerusalem: and abundance for them that love thee.
    7 Let peace be in thy strength: and abundance in thy towers.
    8 For the sake of my brethren, and of my neighbours, I spoke peace of thee.
    9 Because of the house of the Lord our God, I have sought good things for thee.

  • Second Reading: Romans 13:11-14

    11 And that knowing the season; that it is now the hour for us to rise from sleep. For now our salvation is nearer than when we believed.
    12 The night is passed, and the day is at hand. Let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and put on the armour of light.
    13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day: not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and impurities, not in contention and envy:
    14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh in its concupiscences.

  • Gospel: Matthew 24:37-44

    37 And as in the days of Noe, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
    38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, even till that day in which Noe entered into the ark,
    39 And they knew not till the flood came, and took them all away; so also shall the coming of the Son of man be.
    40 Then two shall be in the field: one shall be taken, and one shall be left.
    41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill: one shall be taken, and one shall be left.
    42 Watch ye therefore, because ye know not what hour your Lord will come.
    43 But know this ye, that if the goodman of the house knew at what hour the thief would come, he would certainly watch, and would not suffer his house to be broken open.
    44 Wherefore be you also ready, because at what hour you know not the Son of man will come.
