Reading 1: RV 11:19A; 12:1-6A, 10AB

The first reading from the Book of Revelation.

God’s temple that is in heaven was opened, and the ark of the Lord’s covenant was seen in his temple.

A great sign was seen in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.

She was with child. She cried out in pain, laboring to give birth.

Another sign was seen in heaven. Behold, a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven crowns.

His tail drew one third of the stars of the sky, and threw them to the earth. The dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she gave birth he might devour her child.

She gave birth to a son, a male child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron. Her child was caught up to God and to his throne.

The woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God.

I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation, the power, and the Kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ has come.”

Responsorial Psalm: PS 45:9, 10, 11, 15

Response: At your right hand the queen stands in gold of Ophir.

Kings’ daughters are among your honorable women. At your right hand the queen stands in gold of Ophir.

R: At your right hand the queen stands in gold of Ophir.

Listen, daughter, consider, and turn your ear. Forget your own people, and also your father’s house.

R: At your right hand the queen stands in gold of Ophir.

So the king will desire your beauty, honor him, for he is your lord.

R: At your right hand the queen stands in gold of Ophir.

With gladness and rejoicing they shall be led. They shall enter into the king’s palace.

R: At your right hand the queen stands in gold of Ophir.

Reading 2: 1 COR 15:20-27

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

But now Christ has been raised from the dead. He became the first fruit of those who are asleep.

For since death came by man, the resurrection of the dead also came by man.

For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive.

But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, then those who are Christ’s at his coming.

Then the end comes, when he will deliver up the Kingdom to God the Father, when he will have abolished all rule and all authority and power.

For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet.

The last enemy that will be abolished is death.

For, “He put all things in subjection under his feet.” But when he says, “All things are put in subjection”, it is evident that he is excepted who subjected all things to him.

Gospel of the Day: LK 1:39-56

From the gospel scripture according to Luke.

Mary arose in those days and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Judah, and entered into the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth.

When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.

She called out with a loud voice and said, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!

Why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?

For behold, when the voice of your greeting came into my ears, the baby leaped in my womb for joy!

Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fulfillment of the things which have been spoken to her from the Lord!”

Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord.

My spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior, for he has looked at the humble state of his servant. For behold, from now on, all generations will call me blessed.

For he who is mighty has done great things for me. Holy is his name.

His mercy is for generations and generations on those who fear him.

He has shown strength with his arm. He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

He has put down princes from their thrones, and has exalted the lowly.

He has filled the hungry with good things. He has sent the rich away empty.

He has given help to Israel, his servant, that he might remember mercy, as he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and his offspring forever.”

Mary stayed with her about three months, and then returned to her house.
