1st Reading – Baruch 5:1-9

1 Put off, O Jerusalem, the garment of your mourning, and affliction: and put on the beauty, and honour of that everlasting glory which you have from God.

2 God will clothe you with the double garment of justice, and will set a crown on your head of everlasting honour.

3 For God will show his brightness in you, to everyone under heaven.

4 For your name shall be named to you by God forever: the peace of justice, and honour of piety.

5 Arise, O Jerusalem, and stand on high: and look about towards the east, and behold your children gathered together from the rising to the setting sun, by the word of the Holy One rejoicing in the remembrance of God.

6 For they went out from you on foot, led by the enemies: but the Lord will bring them to you exalted with honour as children of the kingdom.

7 For God has appointed to bring down every high mountain, and the everlasting rocks, and to fill up the valleys to make them even with the ground: that Israel may walk diligently to the honour of God.

8 Moreover the woods, and every sweet-smelling tree have overshadowed Israel by the commandment of God.

9 For God will bring Israel with joy in the light of his majesty, with mercy, and justice, that comes from him.

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 126:1-2, 2-3, 4-5, 6

R. (3) The Lord has done great things for us; we are filled with joy.

1 When the Lord brought back the captivity of Zion,
we became like men comforted.
2AB Then was our mouth filled with gladness;
and our tongue with joy.
R. The Lord has done great things for us; we are filled with joy.

2BC Then shall they say among the Gentiles:
The Lord hath done great things for them.
3 The Lord hath done great things for us:
we are become joyful.
R. The Lord has done great things for us; we are filled with joy.

4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD,
like the torrents in the southern desert.
5 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
R. The Lord has done great things for us; we are filled with joy.

6 Although they go forth weeping,
carrying the seed to be sown,
But coming they shall come with joyfulness,
carrying their sheaves.
R. The Lord has done great things for us; we are filled with joy.

2nd Reading – Philippians 1:4-6, 8-11

Brothers and sisters:
4 Always in all my prayers making supplication for you all, with joy;

5 For your communication in the gospel of Christ from the first day until now.

6 Being confident of this very thing, that he, who has begun a good work in you, will perfect it unto the day of Christ Jesus.

8 For God is my witness, how I long after you all in the bowels of Jesus Christ.

9 And this I pray, that your charity may more and more abound in knowledge, and in all understanding:

10 That you may approve the better things, that you may be sincere and without offence unto the day of Christ,

11 Filled with the fruit of justice, through Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

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 – Luke 3:1-6

1 Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and Philip his brother tetrarch of Iturea, and the country of Trachonitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilina;

2 Under the high priests Annas and Caiphas; the word of the Lord was made unto John, the son of Zechariah, in the desert.

3 And he came into all the country about the Jordan, preaching the baptism of penance for the remission of sins;

4 as it is written in the book of the words of the prophet Isaiah: A voice of one crying out in the desert: “Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths.

5 Every valley shall be filled; and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight; and the rough ways plain;

6 And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.”
