FIRST READING

ISAIAH 2:1-5

 

This is what Isaiah,
son of Amoz,
saw concerning Judah
and Jerusalem.

2 In days to come,
the mountain of the LORD’s
house shall be established
as the highest mountain
and raised above the hills.
All nations shall stream toward it;

3 many peoples shall
come and say: “Come, let us
climb the LORD’s mountain,
to the house of the
God of Jacob, that he
may instruct us in his
ways, and we may walk
in his paths.” For from
Zion shall go forth
instruction, and the word
of the LORD from Jerusalem.

4 He shall judge between
the nations, and impose
terms on many peoples.
They shall beat their swords
into plowshares and their
spears into pruning hooks;
one nation shall not raise
the sword against another,
nor shall they train for war again.

5 O house of Jacob, come,
let us walk in the light of the Lord!

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:

REFRAIN

I am glad, I am glad
to be present in the
house of God.

I am glad, I am glad
to be welcomed by the
Living Lord.

SECOND READING

ROMANS 13:11-14

 

Brothers and sisters:

11 You know the time;
it is the hour now
for you to awake from sleep.
For our salvation is
nearer now than when
we first believed;

12 the night is advanced,
the day is at hand.
Let us then throw off the
works of darkness and
put on the armor of light;

13 let us conduct ourselves
properly as in the day, not in
orgies and drunkenness,
not in promiscuity and lust,
not in rivalry and jealousy.

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION

REFRAIN

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

VERSE

Show us Lord, your love;
and grant us your salvation.

REFRAIN

GOSPEL:

MATTHEW 24:37-44

 Jesus said to his disciples:
“As it was in the days of Noah,
so it will be at the

coming of the Son of Man.

38 In those days before the flood,
they were eating and drinking,
marrying and giving in marriage,
up to the day that
Noah entered the ark.

39 They did not know until
the flood came and carried
them all away. So will it
be also at the coming
of the Son of Man.

40 Two men will
be out in the field;
one will be taken,
and one will be left.

41 Two women will be
grinding at the mill;
one will be taken,
and one will be left.

42 Therefore, stay awake!
For you do not know
on which day your Lord will come.

43 Be sure of this:
if the master of the house
had known the hour of night
when the thief was coming,
he would have stayed
awake and not let his
house be broken into.

44 So too, you also must
be prepared, for at
an hour you do not expect,
the Son of Man will come.”

NICENE CREED

I believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things

visible and invisible.

I believe in one

Lord Jesus Christ,
the Only Begotten

Son of God,
born of the Father

before all ages.
God from God,

Light from Light, 
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,

consubstantial with the Father;
through Him

all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven,

 

and by the Holy Spirit

was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.

For our sake he was. crucified

under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death

and was buried, 
and rose again

on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures.


He ascended into heaven 
and is seated at the

right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead
and his kingdom will have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the

Father and the Son,
who with the Father

and the Son is adored

and glorified,
who has spoken

through the prophets.

 

I believe in one, holy,

catholic and apostolic Church.
I confess one Baptism

for the forgiveness of sins
and I look forward to the resurrection

of the dead
and the life of

the world to come. Amen.

APOSTLE'S CREED

I believe in God,

the Father almighty,

Creator of heaven and earth,

and in Jesus Christ,

his only Son, our Lord,

who was conceived by

the Holy Spirit,

born of the Virgin Mary,

suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, died and was buried;

he descended into hell;

on the third day he rose again

from the dead;

he ascended into heaven,

and is seated at the right hand

of God the Father almighty;

from there he will come to judge

the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy Catholic Church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and life everlasting. Amen.

PRESENTATION
COMFORT, COMFORT
O MY PEOPLE
1.

"Comfort, comfort O my people;
speak of peace," now says our God.
"Comfort those who sit in darkness,
groaning from their sorrows’ load.
Speak to all Jerusalem
of the peace that waits for them;
tell them that their sins I cover,
that their warfare now is over."

2.

All their sins our God will pardon,
blotting out each dark misdeed;
all that well deserved his anger
he no more will see or heed.
They have suffered many a day;
now their griefs have passed away.
God will change their aching sadness
into ever-springing gladness.

HOLY

Holy! Holy! Holy

Blessed is He

who comes in

the name of the Lord.

Our Father,
