First reading: 1 John 1:1-4

Something which has existed since the beginning,
that we have heard, and we have seen with our own eyes;
that we have watched and touched with our hands:
the Word, who is life – this is our subject.
That life was made visible:
we saw it and we are giving our testimony,
telling you of the eternal life
which was with the Father and has been made visible to us.
What we have seen and heard we are telling you
so that you too may be in union with us,
as we are in union
with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ.
We are writing this to you to make our own joy complete.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 96(97):1-2,5-6,11-12

Rejoice, you just, in the Lord.

The Lord is king, let earth rejoice,
let all the coastlands be glad.
Cloud and darkness are his raiment;
his throne, justice and right.

Rejoice, you just, in the Lord.

The mountains melt like wax
before the Lord of all the earth.
The skies proclaim his justice;
all peoples see his glory.

Rejoice, you just, in the Lord.

Light shines forth for the just
and joy for the upright of heart.
Rejoice, you just, in the Lord;
give glory to his holy name.

Rejoice, you just, in the Lord.

Gospel Acclamation

we acknowledge you to be the Lord.

Alleluia!
