Catholic Sunday Readings for December 7 2025, Second Sunday of Advent, Year A

1st Reading – Isaiah 11:1-10

1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the root of Jesse: and a flower shall rise up out of his root.

2 And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him: the spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the spirit of counsel and of fortitude, the spirit of knowledge and of Godliness.,

3 And he shall be filled with the spirit of the fear of the Lord. He shall not judge according to the sight of the eyes, nor reprove according to the hearing of the ears.

4 But he shall judge the poor with justice, and shall reprove with equity for the meek of the earth. And he shall strike the earth with the rod of his mouth: and with the breath of his lips he shall slay the wicked.

5 And justice shall be the girdle of his loins: and faith the girdle of his reins.

6 The wolf shall dwell with the lamb: and the leopard shall lie down with the kid. The calf and the lion and the sheep shall abide together: and a little child shall lead them.

7 The calf and the bear shall feed, their young ones shall rest, together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.

8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp: and the weaned child shall thrust his hand into the den of the basilisk.

9 They shall not hurt, nor shall they kill in all my holy mountain: for the earth is filled with the knowledge of the Lord, as the covering waters of the sea.

10 In that day, the root of Jesse, who standeth for an ensign of the people, him the Gentiles shall beseech: and his sepulchre shall be glorious.

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 72:1-2, 7-8, 12-13, 17

R. (cf. 7) Justice shall flourish in his time, and fullness of peace for ever.

1 Give to the king thy judgment, O God:
and to the king’s son thy justice:
2 To judge thy people with justice,
and thy poor with judgment.
R. Justice shall flourish in his time, and fullness of peace for ever.

7 In his days shall justice spring up,
and abundance of peace, till the moon be taken sway.
8 And he shall rule from sea to sea,
and from the river unto the ends of the earth.
R. Justice shall flourish in his time, and fullness of peace for ever.

12 For he shall deliver the poor from the mighty:
and the needy that had no helper.
13 He shall spare the poor and needy:
and he shall save the souls of the poor.
R. Justice shall flourish in his time, and fullness of peace for ever.

17 Let his name be blessed for evermore:
his name continueth before the sun.
And in him shall all the tribes of the earth be blessed:
all nations shall magnify him.
R. Justice shall flourish in his time, and fullness of peace for ever.

2nd Reading – Romans 15:4-9

Brothers and sisters:
4 For what things soever were written, were written for our learning: that through patience and the comfort of the scriptures, we might have hope.

5 Now the God of patience and of comfort grant you to be of one mind one towards another, according to Jesus Christ:

6 That with one mind, and with one mouth, you may glorify God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

7 Therefore receive one another, as Christ also has received you unto the honour of God.

8 For I say that Christ Jesus was minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers.

9 But that the Gentiles are to glorify God for his mercy, as it is written: Therefore will I confess to you, O Lord, among the Gentiles, and will sing to your name.

Alleluia – Luke 3:4, 6

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
4 Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths:
6 all flesh shall see the salvation of God.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel – Matthew 3:1-12

1 And in those days came John the Baptist preaching in the desert of Judea.

2 and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!”

3 For this is he that was spoken of by Isaiah the prophet, saying: A voice of one crying in the desert, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight his paths.

4 And the same John had his garment of camels’ hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins: and his meat was locusts and wild honey.

5 Then went out to him Jerusalem and all Judea, and all the country about Jordan.

6 And were baptized by him in the Jordan, confessing their sins.

7 And seeing many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them: You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath?

8 Bring forth, therefore, fruit worthy of penance.

9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham for our father. For I tell you that God is able of these stones to raise up children to Abraham.

10 For now the axe is laid to the root of the trees. Every tree therefore that does not yield good fruit, shall be cut down, and cast into the fire.

11 I am baptizing you with water, for repentance, but the one who is coming after me is mightier than I. I am not worthy to carry his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

12 He has a fan in his hand, and he will thoroughly cleanse his floor and gather his wheat into the barn; but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.
