1st Reading – Isaiah 61:1-2A, 10-11

1 The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me; he has sent me to bring glad tidings to the poor, to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and release to the prisoners,

2A to announce a year of favor from the LORD and a day of vindication by our God.

10 I rejoice heartily in the LORD, in my God is the joy of my soul; for he has clothed me with a robe of salvation and wrapped me in a mantle of justice,
like a bridegroom adorned with a diadem, like a bride bedecked with her jewels.

11 As the earth brings forth its plants, and a garden makes its growth spring up, so will the Lord GOD make justice and praise spring up before all the nations.

Responsorial Psalm – Luke 1:46-48, 49-50, 53-54

R. (Isaiah 61:10b) My soul rejoices in my God.

Gospel – John 1:6-8, 19-28

6 A man named John was sent from God.

7 He came for testimony, to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him.

8 He was not the light, but came to testify to the light.

19 And this is the testimony of John. When the Jews from Jerusalem sent priests and Levites to him to ask him, “Who are you?”

20 He admitted and did not deny it, but admitted, “I am not the Christ.”

21 So they asked him, “What are you then? Are you Elijah?” And he said, “I am not.” “Are you the Prophet?” He answered, “No.”

22 So they said to him, “Who are you, so we can give an answer to those who sent us? What do you have to say for yourself?”

23 He said: “I am the voice of one crying out in the desert, ‘make straight the way of the Lord,'” as Isaiah the prophet said.”

24 Some Pharisees were also sent.

25 They asked him, “Why then do you baptize if you are not the Christ or Elijah or the Prophet?”

26 John answered them, “I baptize with water; but there is one among you whom you do not recognize,

27 the one who is coming after me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to untie.”

28 This happened in Bethany across the Jordan, where John was baptizing.
