Philippians 2:1-11; Luke 2:21-24


The Most Holy Name of Jesus
Readings and Antiphons on p. 1538 of the Daily Missal.

Entrance Antiphon.

At the name of Jesus, every knee should bend, of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

 

First Reading: Philippians 2:1-11

A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Philippians.

So if there is any encouragement in Christ,
any incentive of love, any participation in the Spirit,
any affection and sympathy,
complete my joy by being of the same mind,
having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.
Do nothing from selfishness or conceit,
but in humility count others better than yourselves.
Let each of you look not only to his own interests
but also to the interests of others.
Have this mind among yourselves,
which was in Christ Jesus,
who, though he was in the form of God,
did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped,
but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant,
being born in the likeness of a man.
And being found in human form he humbled himself
and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross.
Therefore God has highly exalted him
and bestowed on him the name which is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 8:4-9 (R. 2ab)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name through all the earth!

When I see the heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars which you arranged,
what is man that you should keep him in mind,
the son of man that you care for him?

Yet you have made him little lower than the angels;
with glory and honour, you crowned him,
gave him power over the works of your hands:
you put all things under his feet.

All of them, sheep and oxen,
yes, even the cattle of the fields,
birds of the air, and fish of the sea
that make their way through the waters.

R/. O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name through all the earth!

Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, Alleluia.
That which conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit,
she will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus.
Alleluia.

 

 

 

 

 

Gospel: Luke 2:21-24

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

And at the end of eight days,
when he was circumcised,
he was called Jesus,
the name given by the angel
before he was conceived in the womb.

And when the time came for their purification
according to the law of Moses,
they brought him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord
(as it is written in the law of the Lord,
“Every male that opens the womb
shall be called holy to the Lord”)
and to offer a sacrifice according to what is said
in the law of the Lord,
“a pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.”

The Gospel of the Lord.

Communion Antiphon.
O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name through all the earth!
