Advent 1st week Monday Cycle II All pre-Gospel readings


First reading: Isaiah 4:2-6

That day, the branch of the Lord 
shall be beauty and glory,
and the fruit of the earth 
shall be the pride and adornment 
of Israel’s survivors.
Those who are left of Zion 
and remain of Jerusalem 
shall be called holy
and those left in Jerusalem, 
noted down for survival.

When the Lord has washed away 
the filth of the daughter of Zion
and cleansed Jerusalem of the blood shed in her
with the blast of judgement and the blast of destruction,
the Lord will come and rest 
on the whole stretch of Mount Zion
and on those who are gathered there,
a cloud by day, and smoke,
and by night the brightness of a flaring fire.
For, over all, the glory of the Lord 
will be a canopy and a tent
to give shade by day from the heat,
refuge and shelter from the storm and the rain.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 121(122):1-2,4-5,6-9

I rejoiced when I heard them say: ‘Let us go to God’s house.’

I rejoiced when I heard them say:
  ‘Let us go to God’s house.’
And now our feet are standing
  within your gates, O Jerusalem.

I rejoiced when I heard them say: ‘Let us go to God’s house.’

It is there that the tribes go up, 
  the tribes of the Lord.
For Israel’s law it is, 
  there to praise the Lord’s name.
There were set the thrones of judgement 
  of the house of David.

I rejoiced when I heard them say: ‘Let us go to God’s house.’

For the peace of Jerusalem pray: 
  ‘Peace be to your homes!
May peace reign in your walls, 
  in your palaces, peace!’

I rejoiced when I heard them say: ‘Let us go to God’s house.’

For love of my brethren and friends 
  I say: ‘Peace upon you!’
For love of the house of the Lord 
  I will ask for your good.

I rejoiced when I heard them say: ‘Let us go to God’s house.’
