  • First Reading: Tobit 12:1, 5-15, 20

    1 Then Tobias called to him his son, and said to him: What can we give to this holy man, that is come with thee?
    5 So the father and the son, calling him, took him aside: and began to desire him that he would vouchsafe to accept of half of all things that they had brought.
    6 Then he said to them secretly: Bless ye the God of heaven, give glory to him in the sight of all that live, because he hath shewn his mercy to you.
    7 For it is good to hide the secret of a king: but honourable to reveal and confess the works of God.
    8 Prayer is good with fasting and alms more than to lay up treasures of gold:
    9 For alms delivereth from death, and the same is that which purgeth away sins, and maketh to find mercy and life everlasting.
    10 But they that commit sin and iniquity, are enemies to their own soul.
    11 I discover then the truth unto you, and I will not hide the secret from you.
    12 When thou didst pray with tears, and didst bury the dead, and didst leave thy dinner, and hide the dead by day in thy house, and bury them by night, I offered thy prayer to the Lord.
    13 And because thou wast acceptable to God, it was necessary that temptation should prove thee.
    14 And now the Lord hath sent me to heal thee, and to deliver Sara thy son's wife from the devil.
    15 For I am the angel Raphael, one of the seven, who stand before the Lord.
    20 It is time therefore that I return to him that sent me: but bless ye God, and publish all his wonderful works. 

  • Psalm: Tobit 13:2, 6, 7, 8

    2 For thou scourgest, and thou savest: thou leadest down to hell, and bringest up again: and there is none that can escape thy hand.
    6 See then what he hath done with us, and with fear and trembling give ye glory to him: and extol the eternal King of worlds in your works.
    7 As for me, I will praise him in the land of my captivity: because he hath shewn his majesty toward a sinful nation.
    8 Be converted therefore, ye sinners, and do justice before God, believing that he will shew his mercy to you.

  • Gospel: Luke 2:41-51

    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 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 And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject to them. And his mother kept all these words in her heart.
