Daily Mass Reading – 09 December 2014 – Tuesday

Tuesday of Week 2 of Advent
First Reading: Isaiah 40:1-11
1 Comfort, give comfort to my people, says your God.2 Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and proclaim to her that her service is at an end, her guilt is expiated; Indeed, she has received from the hand of the LORD double for all her sins.

3 A voice cries out: In the desert prepare the way of the LORD! Make straight in the wasteland a highway for our God!

4 Every valley shall be filled in, every mountain and hill shall be made low; The rugged land shall be made a plain, the rough country, a broad valley.

5 Then the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all mankind shall see it together; for the mouth of the LORD has spoken.

6 A voice says, “Cry out!” I answer, “What shall I cry out?” “All mankind is grass, and all their glory like the flower of the field.

7 The grass withers, the flower wilts, when the breath of the LORD blows upon it. (So then, the people is the grass.)

8 Though the grass withers and the flower wilts, the word of our God stands forever.”

9 Go up onto a high mountain, Zion, herald of glad tidings; Cry out at the top of your voice, Jerusalem, herald of good news! Fear not to cry out and say to the cities of Judah: Here is your God!

10 Here comes with power the Lord GOD, who rules by his strong arm; Here is his reward with him, his recompense before him.

11 Like a shepherd he feeds his flock; in his arms he gathers the lambs, Carrying them in his bosom, and leading the ewes with care.

Gospel: Matthew 18:12-14
12 What is your opinion? If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them goes astray, will he not leave the ninety-nine in the hills and go in search of the stray?13 And if he finds it, amen, I say to you, he rejoices more over it than over the ninety- nine that did not stray.

14 In just the same way, it is not the will of your heavenly Father that one of these little ones be lost.
