Daily Gospel Reading for December 6, 2022 – Tuesday in the Second Week of Advent Bible Verse

The 6th of December, 2022 is Tuesday in the Second Week of Advent. The Holy Bible verses for the mass readings for this day came from the Liturgical Calendar Year 2023.

Reading 1: IS 40:1-11

The first reading from the Book of Isaiah.

“Comfort, comfort my people,” says your God.

“Speak comfortably to Jerusalem, and call out to her that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned, that she has received of Yahweh’s hand double for all her sins.”

The voice of one who calls out, “Prepare the way of Yahweh in the wilderness! Make a level highway in the desert for our God.

Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low. The uneven shall be made level, and the rough places a plain.

Yahweh’s glory shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together; for the mouth of Yahweh has spoken it.”

The voice of one saying, “Cry out!” One said, “What shall I cry?” “All flesh is like grass, and all its glory is like the flower of the field.

The grass withers, the flower fades, because Yahweh’s breath blows on it. Surely the people are like grass.

The grass withers, the flower fades; but the word of our God stands forever.”

You who tell good news to Zion, go up on a high mountain. You who tell good news to Jerusalem, lift up your voice with strength! Lift it up! Don’t be afraid! Say to the cities of Judah, “Behold, your God!”

Behold, the Lord Yahweh will come as a mighty one, and his arm will rule for him. Behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him.

He will feed his flock like a shepherd. He will gather the lambs in his arm, and carry them in his bosom. He will gently lead those who have their young.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 96:1-2, 3 and 10AC, 11-12, 13

Sing to Yahweh a new song! Sing to Yahweh, all the earth.

Sing to Yahweh! Bless his name! Proclaim his salvation from day to day!

R: Behold, the Lord Yahweh will come as a mighty one, and his arm will rule for him.

Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples.

Say among the nations, “Yahweh reigns.” He will judge the peoples with equity.

R: Behold, the Lord Yahweh will come as a mighty one, and his arm will rule for him.

Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice. Let the sea roar, and its fullness!

Let the field and all that is in it exult! Then all the trees of the woods shall sing for joy.

R: Behold, the Lord Yahweh will come as a mighty one, and his arm will rule for him.

Before Yahweh; for he comes, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness, the peoples with his truth.

R: Behold, the Lord Yahweh will come as a mighty one, and his arm will rule for him.

Gospel of the Day: MT 18:12-14

From the gospel scripture according to Matthew.

“What do you think? If a man has one hundred sheep, and one of them goes astray, doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine, go to the mountains, and seek that which has gone astray?

If he finds it, most certainly I tell you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine which have not gone astray.

Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.”

Other Celebration

An optional celebration on this day is the Memorial of Saint Nicholas, Bishop.
