Daily Mass Readings for January 6 2024, Saturday – Christmas Weekday

1st Reading – 1 John 5:5-13

Beloved:
5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God!

6 This is the One who came by water and blood: Jesus Christ. Not by water only, but by water and blood. And the Spirit is the One who testifies that the Christ is the Truth.

7 For there are Three who give testimony in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit. And these Three are One.

8 And there are three who give testimony on earth: the Spirit, and the water, and the blood. And these three are one.

9 If we accept the testimony of men, then the testimony of God is greater. For this is the testimony of God, which is greater: that he has testified about his Son.

10 Whoever believes in the Son of God, holds the testimony of God within himself. Whoever does not believe in the Son, makes him a liar, because he does not believe in the testimony which God has testified about his Son.

11 And this is the testimony which God has given to us: Eternal Life. And this Life is in his Son.

12 Whoever has the Son, has Life. Whoever does not have the Son, does not have Life.

13 I am writing this to you, so that you may know that you have Eternal Life: you who believe in the name of the Son of God.

Gospel – Mark 1:7-11

7 This is what John the Baptist preached, saying: There comes after me one mightier than I, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and loose.

8 I have baptized you with water; but he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit.

9 And it came to pass, in those days, Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan.

10 And forthwith coming up out of he water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit as a dove descending, and remaining on him.

11 And there came a voice from heaven: You are my beloved Son; in you I am well pleased.
