    Zechariah 2:14-17
    10 Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion; for lo, I come and I will dwell in the midst of you, says the LORD.
    11 And many nations shall join themselves to the LORD in that day, and shall be my people; and I will dwell in the midst of you, and you shall know that the LORD of hosts has sent me to you.
    12 And the LORD will inherit Judah as his portion in the holy land, and will again choose Jerusalem."
    13 Be silent, all flesh, before the LORD; for he has roused himself from his holy dwelling.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Luke 1:46-55
    46 And Mary said, "My soul magnifies the Lord,
    47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
    48 for he has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden. For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed;
    49 for he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name.
    50 And his mercy is on those who fear him from generation to generation.
    51 He has shown strength with his arm, he has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts,
    52 he has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted those of low degree;
    53 he has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he has sent empty away.
    54 He has helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy,
    55 as he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his posterity for ever."

  • Gospel

    Matthew 12:46-50
    46 While he was still speaking to the people, behold, his mother and his brothers stood outside, asking to speak to him.
    48 But he replied to the man who told him, "Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?"
    49 And stretching out his hand toward his disciples, he said, "Here are my mother and my brothers!
    50 For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother, and sister, and mother."
