FEAST OF THE VISITATION – RESPONSORIAL PSALM (ISAIAH 12:2-6)

R. Great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.

With joy you will draw water
from the wells of salvation. (R.)

Make his mighty deeds known to the peoples!
Declare the greatness of his name. (R.)

3. Sing a psalm to the Lord!
For he has done glorious deeds,
make them known to all the earth!
People of Zion, sing and shout for joy
for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel. (R.)

Alleluia, alleluia!
Blessed is the Virgin Mary who believed
that the promise made her by the Lord would be fulfilled.
Alleluia!

TODAY’S BIBLE READING (ACTS 13:26-33)

GOD HAS FULFILLED HIS PROMISE BY RAISING JESUS FROM THE DEAD.

Paul stood up in the synagogue at Antioch in Pisidia, held up a hand for silence and began to speak: “My brothers, sons of Abraham’s race, and all you who fear God, this message of salvation is meant for you. What the people of Jerusalem and their rulers did, though they did not realise it, was in fact to fulfil the prophecies read on every sabbath. Though they found nothing to justify his death, they condemned him and asked Pilate to have him executed. When they had carried out everything that scripture foretells about him they took him down from the tree and buried him in a tomb. But God raised him from the dead, and for many days he appeared to those who had accompanied him from Galilee to Jerusalem: and it is these same companions of his who are now his witnesses before our people.

“We have come here to tell you the Good News. It was to our ancestors that God made the promise but it is to us, their children, that he has fulfilled it, by raising Jesus from the dead. As scripture says in the first psalm: You are my son: today I have become your father.”

V. The word of the Lord.
R. Thanks be to God.
