Mass Readings for other dates

Christmas Weekday
First Reading: First John 5: 5-13

5 Who (indeed) is the victor over the world but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

6 This is the one who came through water and blood, Jesus Christ, not by water alone, but by water and blood. The Spirit is the one that testifies, and the Spirit is truth.

7 So there are three that testify,

8 the Spirit, the water, and the blood, and the three are of one accord.

9 If we accept human testimony, the testimony of God is surely greater. Now the testimony of God is this, that he has testified on behalf of his Son.

10 Whoever believes in the Son of God has this testimony within himself. Whoever does not believe God has made him a liar by not believing the testimony God has given about his Son.

11 And this is the testimony: God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

12 Whoever possesses the Son has life; whoever does not possess the Son of God does not have life.

13 I write these things to you so that you may know that you have eternal life, you who believe in the name of the Son of God.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 147: 12-13, 14-15, 19-20

12 Glorify the LORD, Jerusalem; Zion, offer praise to your God,

13 Who has strengthened the bars of your gates, blessed your children within you,

14 Brought peace to your borders, and filled you with finest wheat.

15 The LORD sends a command to earth; his word runs swiftly!

19 The LORD also proclaims his word to Jacob, decrees and laws to Israel.

20 God has not done this for other nations; of such laws they know nothing. Hallelujah!

Gospel: Luke 5: 12-16

12 Now there was a man full of leprosy in one of the towns where he was; and when he saw Jesus, he fell prostrate, pleaded with him, and said, “Lord, if you wish, you can make me clean.”

13 Jesus stretched out his hand, touched him, and said, “I do will it. Be made clean.” And the leprosy left him immediately.

14 Then he ordered him not to tell anyone, but “Go, show yourself to the priest and offer for your cleansing what Moses prescribed; that will be proof for them.”

15 The report about him spread all the more, and great crowds assembled to listen to him and to be cured of their ailments,

16 but he would withdraw to deserted places to pray.
