Gospel: Luke (2:1-20)

A Reading from the Letter to the Hebrews (1,1-12)


Your blessings Father
Brothers and sisters, In times past, God spoke in partial and various ways to our
ancestors through the prophets; in these last days, he spoke to us through a son,
whom he made heir of all things and through whom he created the universe, who is the
refulgence of his glory, the very imprint of his being, and who sustains all things by his
mighty word. When he had accomplished purification from sins, he took his seat at the
right hand of the Majesty on high, as far superior to the angels as the name he has
inherited is more excellent than theirs. For to which of the angels did God ever say: "You
are my son; this day I have begotten you"? Or again: "I will be a father to him, and he
shall be a son to me"? And again, when he leads the first-born into the world, he says:
"Let all the angels of God worship him." Of the angels he says: "He makes his angels
winds and his ministers a fiery flame"; but of the Son: "Your throne, O God, stands
forever and ever; and a righteous scepter is the scepter of your kingdom. You loved
justice and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, anointed you with the oil of
gladness above your companions"; and: "At the beginning, O Lord, you established the
earth, and the heavens are the works of your hands. They will perish, but you remain;
and they will all grow old like a garment. You will roll them up like a cloak, and like a
garment they will be changed. But you are the same, and your years will have no end."
Praise be to God always.

In those days a decree went out from


Caesar Augustus that the whole world
should be enrolled. This was the first
enrollment, when Quirinius was governor
of Syria. So all went to be enrolled, each
to his own town. And Joseph too went
up from Galilee from the town of
Nazareth to Judea, to the city of David
that is called Bethlehem, because he
was of the house and family of David, to
be enrolled with Mary, his betrothed,
who was with child. While they were
there, the time came for her to have her
child, and she gave birth to her firstborn
son. She wrapped him in swaddling
clothes and laid him in a manger,
because there was no room for them in
the inn. Now there were shepherds in
that region living in the fields and
keeping the night watch over their flock.
The angel of the Lord appeared to them
and the glory of the Lord shone around
them, and they were struck with great
fear. The angel said to them, "Do not be
afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you
good news of great joy that will be for all
the people. For today in the city of David
a savior has been born for you who is
Messiah and Lord. And this will be a sign
for you: you will find an infant wrapped in
swaddling clothes and lying in a
manger."" And suddenly there was a
multitude of the heavenly host with the
angel, praising God and saying: "Glory to
God in the highest and on earth peace
to those on whom his favor rests."
When the angels went away from them
to heaven, the shepherds said to one
another, "Let us go, then, to Bethlehem
to see this thing that has taken place,
which the Lord has made known to us."
So they went in haste and found Mary
and Joseph, and the infant lying in the
manger. When they saw this, they made
known the message that had been told
them about this child. All who heard it
were amazed by what had been told
them by the shepherds. And Mary kept
all these things, reflecting on them in her
heart. Then the shepherds returned,
glorifying and praising God for all they
had heard and seen, just as it had been
told to them. This is the truth. Peace
be with you.
