1John 5:5-13; Luke 5

The Friday after Epiphany.
Readings on p. 171 and Antiphons on p. 152 of the Daily Missal.

Entrance Antiphon.

A light has risen in the darkness for the upright of heart; the Lord is generous, merciful and just.


First Reading: 1 John 5:5-13

A reading from the First Letter of Saint John.


Who is it that overcomes the world
but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

This is the one who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ,
not with the water only
but with the water and the blood.
And the Spirit is the witness
because the Spirit is the truth.
There are three witnesses,
the Spirit, the water, and the blood;
and these three agree.
If we receive human testimony,
the testimony of God is greater;
for this is the testimony of God
that he has borne witness to his Son.

Whoever believes in the Son of God has the testimony in oneself.
Whoever does not believe God has made him a liar
because he has not believed in the testimony
that God has borne to his Son.
And this is the testimony,
that God gave us eternal life,
and this life is in his Son.
The one who has the Son has life;
whoever has not the Son of God, has not life.

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

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 147:13-13.14-15.19-20 (R. 12a)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. O Jerusalem, glorify the Lord!

O Jerusalem, glorify the Lord!
O Sion, praise your God!
He has strengthened the bars of your gates;
he has blessed your children within you.

He established peace on your borders;
he gives you your fill of finest wheat.
He sends out his word to the earth,
and swiftly runs his command.

He reveals his word to Jacob;
to Israel, his decrees and judgments.
He has not dealt thus with other nations;
he has not taught them his judgments.

R/. O Jerusalem, glorify the Lord!

Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, Alleluia.
Jesus was preaching the Gospel of the kingdom
and healing every infirmity among the people.



Gospel: Luke 5:12-16

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

While Jesus was in one of the cities,
there came a man full of leprosy;
and when he saw Jesus,
he fell on his face and begged him,
“Lord, if you will, you can make me clean.”

And he stretched out his hand, and touched him, saying,
“I will; be clean.”
And immediately the leprosy left him.
And he charged him to tell no one;
but “go and show yourself to the priest,
and make an offering for your cleansing,
as Moses commanded,
for a proof to the people.”

But so much the more the report went abroad concerning him,
and great multitudes gathered to hear
and to be healed of their infirmities.
But he withdrew to the wilderness and prayed.

The Gospel of the Lord.

Communion Antiphon.
In this way the love of God was revealed to us: God sent his only Son into the world that we might have life through him.
