First Reading: Daniel 7:15-27

A reading from the Book of the Prophet Daniel.

“As for me, Daniel,
my spirit within me was anxious
and the visions of my head alarmed me.
I approached one of those who stood there
and asked him the truth concerning all this.
So he told me,
and made known to me the interpretation of the things.

‘These four great beasts are four kings
who shall arise out of the earth.
But the saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom,
and possess the kingdom forever, forever and ever.’
“Then I desired to know the truth concerning the fourth beast,
which was different from all the rest,
exceedingly terrifying,
with its teeth of iron and claws of bronze;
and which devoured and broke in pieces,
and stamped the residue with its feet;
and concerning the ten horns that were on its head,
and the other horn which came up
and before which three of them fell,
the horn which had eyes and a mouth that spoke great things,
and which seemed greater than its fellows.
As I looked,
this horn made war with the saints
and prevailed over them,
until the Ancient of Days came,
and judgment was given for the saints of the Most High,
and the time came
when the saints received the kingdom.

“Thus he said: ‘As for the fourth beast,
there shall be a fourth kingdom on earth,
which shall be different from all the kingdoms,
and it shall devour the whole earth,
and trample it down,
and break it to pieces.
As for the ten horns,
out of this kingdom ten kings shall arise,
and another shall arise after them;
he shall be different from the former ones
and shall put down three kings.
He shall speak words against the Most High,
and shall wear out the saints of the Most High,
and shall think to change the times and the law,
and they shall be given into his hand
for a time, two times, and half a time.

But the court shall sit in judgment,
and his dominion shall be taken away,
to be consumed and destroyed to the end.
And the kingdom and the dominion
and the greatness of the kingdoms
under the whole heaven
shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High;
their kingdom shall be an everlasting kingdom,
and all dominions shall serve and obey them.’

The Word of the Lord.

Gospel: Luke 21:34-36

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
Jesus said to his disciples,
“Take heed to yourselves
lest your hearts be weighed down
with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life,
and that day come upon you suddenly like a snare;
for it will come upon all who dwell upon the face of the whole earth. But watch at all times,
praying that you may have strength
to escape all these things that will take place,
and to stand before the Son of Man.”

The Gospel of the Lord.
