Gospel - Lk 2:41-52

41. And his parents went every year to Jerusalem, at the time of the solemnity of Passover.
42. And when he had become twelve years old, they ascended to Jerusalem, according to the custom of the feast day.
43. And having completed the days, when they returned, the boy Jesus remained in Jerusalem. And his parents did not realize this.
44. But, supposing that he was in the company, they went a day’s journey, seeking him among their relatives and acquaintances.
45. And not finding him, they returned to Jerusalem, seeking him.
46. And it happened that, after three days, they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, listening to them and questioning them.
47. But all who listened to him were astonished over his prudence and his responses.
48. And upon seeing him, they wondered. And his mother said to him: “Son, why have you acted this way toward us? Behold, your father and I were seeking you in sorrow.”
49. And he said to them: “How is it that you were seeking me? For did you not know that it is necessary for me to be in these things which are of my Father?”
50. And they did not understand the word that he spoke to them.
51. And he descended with them and went to Nazareth. And he was subordinate to them. And his mother kept all these words in her heart.
52. And Jesus advanced in wisdom, and in age, and in grace, with God and men.
