Christmas Eve Mass Readings, December 25 2024 – The Nativity of the Lord Mass During the Night (Midnight Mass)

1st Reading – Isaiah 9:1-6

1 The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: to them that dwelt in the region of the shadow of death, light is risen.

2 You have multiplied the nation, and have not increased the joy. They shall rejoice before you, as they that rejoice in the harvest, as conquerors rejoice after taking a prey, when they divide the spoils.

3 For the yoke of their burden, and the rod of their shoulder, and the sceptre of their oppressor, you best overcome, as in the day of Madian.

4 For every violent taking of spoils, with tumult, and garment mingled with blood shall be burnt and be fuel for the fire.

5 For a CHILD IS BORN to us, and a son is given to us, and the government is upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called, Wonderful, Counsellor, God the Mighty, the Father of the world to come, the Prince of Peace.

6 His empire shall be multiplied, and there shall be no end of peace. He shall sit upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom: to establish it and strengthen it with judgment and with justice, from henceforth and for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 96: 1-2, 2-3, 11-12, 13

R. (Luke 2:11) Today is born our Savior, Christ the Lord.

1 Sing to the LORD a new song;
sing to the LORD, all you lands.
2A Sing to the LORD; bless his name.
R. Today is born our Savior, Christ the Lord.

2B Announce his salvation, day after day.
3 Tell his glory among the nations;
among all peoples, his wondrous deeds.
R. Today is born our Savior, Christ the Lord.

11 Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice;
let the sea and what fills it resound;
12 let the plains be joyful and all that is in them!
Then shall all the trees of the forest exult.
R. Today is born our Savior, Christ the Lord.

13 They shall exult before the LORD, for he comes;
for he comes to rule the earth.
He shall rule the world with justice
and the peoples with his constancy.
R. Today is born our Savior, Christ the Lord.

2nd Reading – Titus 2:11-14

Beloved:
11 For the grace of God our Savior has appeared to all men;

12 Instructing us, that, denying ungodliness and worldly desires, we should live soberly, and justly, and godly in this world,

13 Looking for the blessed hope and coming of the glory of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ,

14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and might cleanse to himself a people acceptable, a pursuer of good works.

Alleluia – Luke 2:10-11

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
10 I proclaim to you good news of great joy:
11 today a Savior is born for us,
Christ the Lord.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel – Luke 2:1-14

1 And it happened in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus, so that the whole world would be enrolled.

2 This was the first enrollment; it was made by the ruler of Syria, Quirinius.

3 And all went to be enrolled, everyone into his own city.

4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem: because he was of the house and family of David,

5 to be enrolled with Mary his espoused wife, who was with child.

6 While they were there, the time came for her to have her child,

7 and she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him up in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

8 And there were in the same country shepherds watching, and keeping the night watches over their flock.

9 And behold, an Angel of the Lord stood near them, and the brightness of God shone around them, and they were struck with a great fear.

10 And the angel said to them: Fear not; for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, that shall be to all the people:

11 For, this day, is born to you a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord, in the city of David.

12 And this shall be a sign unto you. You shall find the infant wrapped in swaddling clothes, and laid in a manger.

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly army, praising God, and saying:

14 Glory to God in the highest; and on earth peace to men of good will.
