SOLEMNITY OF ST JOSEPH, BIBLE READING I (2 SAMUEL 7:4-5, 12-14, 16)

THE LORD GOD WILL GIVE HIM THE THRONE OF HIS ANCESTOR DAVID.

The word of the Lord came to Nathan: “Go and tell my servant David, ‘Thus the Lord speaks: When your days are ended and you are laid to rest with your ancestors, I will preserve the offspring of your body after you and make his sovereignty secure. (It is he who shall build a house for my name, and I will make his royal throne secure for ever.)

I will be a father to him and he a son to me. Your House and your sovereignty will always stand secure before me and your throne be established for ever.’”

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

TODAY’S GOSPEL READING (MARK 12:35-37)

HOW CAN THEY MAINTAIN THAT THE CHRIST IS THE SON OF DAVID?

While teaching in the Temple, Jesus said, “How can the scribes maintain that the Christ is the son of David? David himself, moved by the Holy Spirit, said:
The Lord said to my Lord:
Sit at my right hand
and I will put your enemies
under your feet.
David himself calls him Lord, in what way then can he be his son?”
And the great majority of the people heard this with delight.

V. The Gospel of the Lord.
R. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
