1st Reading – Isaiah 7:10-14

10 The Lord spoke further to Ahaz, saying:

11 Ask for a sign for yourself from the Lord your God, from the depths below, even to the heights above.

12 And Ahaz said, “I will not ask, for I will not tempt the Lord.”

13 And he said: “Then listen, O house of David. Is it such a small thing for you to trouble men, that you must also trouble my God?

14 For this reason, the Lord himself will grant to you a sign. Behold, a virgin will conceive, and she will give birth to a son, and his name will be called Immanuel.

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 24:1-2, 3-4AB, 5-6

R. (See 7c and 10b) Let the Lord enter; he is the king of glory.

1 The LORD’s are the earth and its fullness;
the world and those who dwell in it.
2 For he founded it upon the seas
and established it upon the rivers.
R. Let the Lord enter; he is the king of glory.

3 Who can ascend the mountain of the LORD?
or who may stand in his holy place?
4AB He whose hands are sinless, whose heart is clean,
who desires not what is vain.
R. Let the Lord enter; he is the king of glory.

5 He shall receive a blessing from the LORD,
a reward from God his savior.
6 Such is the race that seeks for him,
that seeks the face of the God of Jacob.
R. Let the Lord enter; he is the king of glory.

Alleluia

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
O Key of David,
opening the gates of God’s eternal Kingdom:
come and free the prisoners of darkness!
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel – Luke 1:26-38

26 And in the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee, called Nazareth,

27 to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin’s name was Mary.

28 And coming to her, he said, “Hail, full of grace! The Lord is with you.” blessed are you among women.

29 But she was greatly troubled at what was said and pondered what sort of greeting this might be.

30 Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.

31 Behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name him Jesus.

32 He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give him the throne of David his father, and he will rule over the house of Jacob forever,

33 And of his kingdom there shall be no end.

34 But Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I have no relations with a man?”

35 And the angel said to her in reply, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. Therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God.

36 And behold your cousin Elizabeth, she also has conceived a son in her old age; and this is the sixth month with her who is called barren:

37 Because no word shall be impossible with God.

38 And Mary said: Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it done to me according to your word. And the angel departed from her.
