First reading: Jeremiah 23:5-8

See, the days are coming – it is the Lord who speaks –
when I will raise a virtuous Branch for David,
who will reign as true king and be wise,
practising honesty and integrity in the land.
In his days Judah will be saved 
and Israel dwell in confidence.
And this is the name he will be called: 
The-Lord-our-integrity.

So, then, the days are coming – it is the Lord who speaks – when people will no longer say, “As the Lord lives who brought the sons of Israel out of the land of Egypt!” but, “As the Lord lives who led back and brought home the descendants of the House of Israel out of the land of the North and from all the countries to which he had dispersed them, to live on their own soil.”

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 71(72):1-2,12-13,18-19

In his days justice shall flourish, and peace until the moon fails.

O God, give your judgement to the king,
  to a king’s son your justice,
that he may judge your people in justice
  and your poor in right judgement.

In his days justice shall flourish, and peace until the moon fails.

For he shall save the poor when they cry
  and the needy who are helpless.
He will have pity on the weak
  and save the lives of the poor.

In his days justice shall flourish, and peace until the moon fails.

Blessed be the Lord, God of Israel,
  who alone works wonders,
ever blessed his glorious name.
  Let his glory fill the earth.

Amen! Amen!

In his days justice shall flourish, and peace until the moon fails.
