Take off the garment of your mourning and affliction, O Jerusalem, and put on forever the beauty of the glory from God.

Put on the robe of the righteousness from God. Set on your head a diadem of the glory of the Everlasting.

For God will show your splendor everywhere under heaven.

Arise, O Jerusalem, and stand upon the height. Look around you toward the east and see your children gathered from the going down of the sun to its rising at the word of the Holy One, rejoicing that God has remembered them.

For they went from you on foot, being led away by their enemies, but God brings them in to you carried on high with glory, on a royal throne.

For God has appointed that every high mountain and the everlasting hills should be made low, and the valleys filled up to make the ground level, that Israel may go safely in the glory of God.

Moreover the woods and every sweet smelling tree have shaded Israel by the commandment of God.

For God will lead Israel with joy in the light of his glory with the mercy and righteousness that come from him.

Gospel of the Day: LK 3:1-6

From the gospel scripture according to Luke.

Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of the region of Ituraea and Trachonitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene, during the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came to John, the son of Zacharias, in the wilderness.

He came into all the region around the Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for remission of sins.

As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet, “The voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Make ready the way of the Lord. Make his paths straight.

Every valley will be filled. Every mountain and hill will be brought low. The crooked will become straight, and the rough ways smooth.

All flesh will see God’s salvation.’_”
