Daily Gospel Reading for November 29, 2020 – First Sunday of Advent Bible Verse

The 29th of November, 2020 is the First Sunday of Advent. The Bible scriptures for the holy mass readings for this day comes from the 2021 Liturgical Calendar.

Reading 1: IS 63:16B-17; 64:1, 3-8

The first reading from the Book of Isaiah.

You, Yahweh, are our Father. Our Redeemer from everlasting is your name.

O Yahweh, why do you make us wander from your ways, and harden our heart from your fear? Return for your servants’ sake, the tribes of your inheritance.

Oh that you would tear the heavens, that you would come down, that the mountains might quake at your presence.

When you did awesome things which we didn’t look for, you came down, and the mountains quaked at your presence.

For from of old men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen a God besides you, who works for him who waits for him.

You meet him who rejoices and does righteousness, those who remember you in your ways. Behold, you were angry, and we sinned. We have been in sin for a long time. Shall we be saved?

For we have all become like one who is unclean, and all our righteousness is like a polluted garment. We all fade like a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.

There is no one who calls on your name, who stirs himself up to take hold of you; for you have hidden your face from us, and have consumed us by means of our iniquities.

But now, Yahweh, you are our Father. We are the clay and you our potter. We all are the work of your hand.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 80:1-2, 14-15, 17-18

Response: Turn us again, God. Cause your face to shine, and we will be saved.

Hear us, Shepherd of Israel, you who lead Joseph like a flock, you who sit above the cherubim, shine out.

Before Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh, stir up your might! Come to save us!

R: Turn us again, God. Cause your face to shine, and we will be saved.

Turn again, we beg you, God of Armies. Look down from heaven, and see, and visit this vine, the stock which your right hand planted, the branch that you made strong for yourself.

R: Turn us again, God. Cause your face to shine, and we will be saved.

Let your hand be on the man of your right hand, on the son of man whom you made strong for yourself.

So we will not turn away from you. Revive us, and we will call on your name.

R: Turn us again, God. Cause your face to shine, and we will be saved.

Reading 2: 1 COR 1:3-9

The second reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians.

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

I always thank my God concerning you for the grace of God which was given you in Christ Jesus, that in everything you were enriched in him, in all speech and all knowledge even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you so that you come behind in no gift, waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will also confirm you until the end, blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

God is faithful, through whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Gospel of the Day: MK 13:33-37

From the gospel verse according to Mark.

Watch, keep alert, and pray; for you don’t know when the time is.

“It is like a man traveling to another country, having left his house and given authority to his servants, and to each one his work, and also commanded the doorkeeper to keep watch.

Watch therefore, for you don’t know when the lord of the house is coming-whether at evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or in the morning; lest, coming suddenly, he might find you sleeping.

What I tell you, I tell all: Watch!”
