  • First Reading: Zephaniah 3:14-18a

    14 Give praise, O daughter of Sion: shout, O Israel: be glad, and rejoice with all thy heart, O daughter of Jerusalem.
    15 The Lord hath taken away thy judgment, he hath turned away thy enemies: the king of Israel the Lord is in the midst of thee, thou shalt fear evil no more.
    16 In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem: Fear not: to Sion: Let not thy hands be weakened.
    17 The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty, he will save: he will rejoice over thee with gladness, he will be silent in his love, he will be joyful over thee in praise.
    18 The triflers that were departed from the law, I will gather together, because they were of thee: that thou mayest no more suffer reproach for them.

  • Psalm: Isaiah 12:2-3, 4bcd, 5-6

    2 Behold, God is my saviour, I will deal confidently, and will not fear: O because the Lord is my strength, and my praise, and he is become my salvation.
    3 You shall draw waters with joy out of the saviour' s fountains:

    4 bcd Praise ye the Lord, and call upon his name: make his works known among the people: remember that his name is high.

    5 Sing ye to the Lord, for he hath done great things: shew this forth in all the earth.
    6 Rejoice, and praise, O thou habitation of Sion: for great is he that is in the midst of thee, the Holy One of Israel. 

  • Gospel: Luke 1:39-56

    39 And Mary rising up in those days, went into the hill country with haste into a city of Juda.
    40 And she entered into the house of Zachary, and saluted Elizabeth.
    41 And it came to pass, that when Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the infant leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:
    42 And she cried out with a loud voice, and said: Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.
    43 And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
    44 For behold as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy.
    45 And blessed art thou that hast believed, because those things shall be accomplished that were spoken to thee by the Lord.
    46 And Mary said: My soul doth magnify the Lord.
    47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
    48 Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid; for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
    49 Because he that is mighty, hath done great things to me; and holy is his name.
    50 And his mercy is from generation unto generations, to them that fear him.
    51 He hath shewed might in his arm: he hath scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.
    52 He hath put down the mighty from their seat, and hath exalted the humble.
    53 He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.
    54 He hath received Israel his servant, being mindful of his mercy:
    55 As he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his seed for ever.
    56 And Mary abode with her about three months; and she returned to her own house.
