    Daniel 7:9-10, 13-14
    9 As I watched, Thrones were set up and the Ancient One took his throne. His clothing was snow bright, and the hair on his head as white as wool; His throne was flames of fire, with wheels of burning fire.
    10 A surging stream of fire flowed out from where he sat; Thousands upon thousands were ministering to him, and myriads upon myriads attended him. The court was convened, and the books were opened.
    13 As the visions during the night continued, I saw One like a son of man coming, on the clouds of heaven; When he reached the Ancient One and was presented before him,
    14 He received dominion, glory, and kingship; nations and peoples of every language serve him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that shall not be taken away, his kingship shall not be destroyed.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Revelation 12:7-12
    7 Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought,
    8 but they were defeated and there was no longer any place for them in heaven.
    9 And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world -- he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
    10 And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, "Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God.
    11 And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.
    12 Rejoice then, O heaven and you that dwell therein! But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!"

  • Gospel

    Psalms 138:1-5
    1 I give thee thanks, O LORD, with my whole heart; before the gods I sing thy praise;
    2 I bow down toward thy holy temple and give thanks to thy name for thy steadfast love and thy faithfulness; for thou hast exalted above everything thy name and thy word.
    3 On the day I called, thou didst answer me, my strength of soul thou didst increase.
    4 All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O LORD, for they have heard the words of thy mouth;
    5 and they shall sing of the ways of the LORD, for great is the glory of the LORD.
