The Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Readings and Antiphons on p. 1721 of the Daily Missal and p1051 of the Sunday Missal.

Entrance Antiphon.

A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon beneath her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.

First Reading: Revelation 11:19a; 12:1-6a.10ab

A reading from the Book of Revelation.

God’s temple in heaven was opened.

And a great sign appeared in heaven,
a woman clothed with the sun,
with the moon under her feet,
and on her head a crown of twelve stars;
she was with child
and she cried out in her pangs of birth,
in anguish for delivery.
And another sign appeared in heaven;
behold, a great red dragon,
with seven heads and ten horns,
and seven diadems upon his heads.
His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven,
and cast them to the earth.
And the dragon stood before the woman
who was about to bear a child,
that he might devour her child when she brought it forth;
she brought forth a male child,
one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron,
but her child was caught up to God and to his throne,
and the woman fled into the wilderness,
where she has a place prepared by God.

And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying,
“Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God
and the authority of his Christ have come.”

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 45: (R. 10b)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm

R/. On your right stands the queen in gold of Ophir.

The daughters of kings are those whom you favour.
On your right stands the queen in gold of Ophir.

Listen, O daughter; pay heed and give ear:
forget your own people and your father’s house.

So will the king desire your beauty.
He is your lord, pay homage to him.

They are escorted amid gladness and joy;
they pass within the palace of the king.

R/. On your right stands the queen in gold of Ophir.

Second Reading: 1 Corinthians 15:20-27

A reading from the First Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians.

Brothers and sisters:

Christ has been raised from the dead,
the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.
For as by a man came death,
by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead.
For as in Adam all die,
so also in Christ shall all be made alive.
But each in his own order:
Christ the first fruits,
then at his coming those who belong to Christ.
Then comes the end,
when he delivers the kingdom to God the Father
after destroying every rule and every authority and power.
For he must reign
until he has put all his enemies under his feet.
The last enemy to be destroyed is death.
“For God has put all things in subjection under his feet.”

The Word of the Lord.

Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, Alleluia.
Mary has been taken up into heaven; the host of angels rejoices.

Gospel: Luke 1:39-56

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

In those days
Mary arose and went with haste into the hill country,
to a city of Judah,
and she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth.
And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary,
the child leaped in her womb;
and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit
and she exclaimed with a loud cry,
“Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb!
And why is this granted me,
that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
For behold,
when the voice of your greeting came to my ears,
the child in my womb leaped for joy.
And blessed is she who believed
that there would be a fulfilment
of what was spoken to her from the Lord.” 

And Mary said,

“My soul magnifies the Lord,
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden.
For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed;
for he who is mighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his name.
And his mercy is on those who fear him
from generation to generation.
He has shown strength with his arm,
he has scattered the proud
in the imagination of their hearts,
he has put down the mighty from their thrones,
and exalted those of low degree;
he has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent empty away.
He has helped his servant Israel,
in remembrance of his mercy,
as he spoke to our fathers,
to Abraham and to his posterity forever.”

And Mary remained with her for about three months
and returned to her home.

The Gospel of the Lord.

Communion Antiphon.

All generations will call me blessed, for he who is mighty has done great things for me.
