Feast of Our Lady Of Guadalupe, December 12, 2016

A reading from the book of the prophet Zechariah 2:14-17(10-13)

10 Sing praise and rejoice, daughter of Zion. For behold, I approach, and I will dwell in your midst, says the Lord. 11 And many nations will be joined to the Lord in that day, and they will be my people, and I will dwell in your midst. And you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent me to you. 12 And the Lord will possess his portion, Judah, in the sanctified land, and still he will single out Jerusalem. 13 Let all flesh be silent before the face of the Lord: for he has arisen from his holy dwelling place.

The word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm Judith 12:18(23)bcde, 19(24)

(Judith 15:9(10)) (You) are the honor of our people.

23 O daughter, you have been blessed by the Lord, the most high God, above all the women on earth.

(You) are the honor of our people.

24 Blessed is the Lord, who made heaven and earth, who has guided you in harming the head of the leader of our enemies.

(You) are the honor of our people.

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 1:39-47

39 And in those days, Mary, rising up, traveled quickly into the hill country, to a city of Judah. 40 And she entered into the house of Zechariah, and she greeted Elizabeth. 41 And it happened that, as Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the infant leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. 42 And she cried out with a loud voice and said: “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. 43 And how does this concern me, so that the mother of my Lord would come to me? 44 For behold, as the voice of your greeting came to my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy. 45 And blessed are you who believed, for the things that were spoken to you by the Lord shall be accomplished.”

46 And Mary said:

“My soul magnifies the Lord. 47 And my spirit leaps for joy in God my Savior.”

The Gospel of the Lord.


Thanks for taking some of your precious time today to read and listen to the daily Mass readings. The readings are taken and adapted from the Catholic Public Domain Version of the Holy Bible.

I appreciate your help and encouragement. Please let me know how I can help you. This is something I’ve been called to do for some time.

This is where Kit Kat is buried. R.I.P. little buddy.
