1John 4:19-5

The Thursday after Epiphany.
Readings on p. 169 and Antiphons on p. 152 of the Daily Missal.

Entrance Antiphon.

In the beginning and before all ages, the Word was God and he humbled himself to be born Saviour of the World.


First Reading: 1 John 4:19-5:4

A reading from the First Letter of Saint John.

We love God because God first loved us.
If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother or sister,
he is a liar;
for whoever does not love his brother or sister whom he has seen,
cannot love God whom he has not seen.
And this commandment we have from him,
that whoever loves God should love his brother or sister also.

Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ
has been born of God,
and everyone who loves the parent
loves the one begotten by him.
By this, we know that we love the children of God
when we love God and obey his commandments.
For this is the love of God,
that we keep his commandments.
And his commandments are not burdensome.
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world;
and this is the victory that overcomes the world,
our faith.

The Word of the Lord.




Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 72:1-2.14 &15cd.17 (R. see 11)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. All nations on earth shall fall prostrate before you, O Lord.

O God, give your judgment to the king,
to a king’s son your justice,
that he may judge your people in justice,
and your poor in right judgment.

From oppression and violence he redeems their souls;
to him their blood is dear.
They shall pray for him without ceasing,
and bless him all the day.

May his name endure forever,
his name continue like the sun.
Every tribe shall be blest in him,
all nations shall call him blessed.

R/. All nations on earth shall fall prostrate before you, O Lord.

Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, Alleluia.
The Lord has sent me to preach good news to the poor,
to proclaim release to the captives.



Gospel: Luke 4:14-22a

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

At that time:
Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee,
and a report concerning him
went out through all the surrounding country.
And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all.

And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up;
and he went to the synagogue, as was his custom,
on the sabbath day.
And he stood up to read,
and there was given to him the book of the prophet Isaiah.
He opened the book and found the place where it was written,
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me
because he has anointed me
to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives
and recovering of sight to the blind,
to set at liberty those who are oppressed,
to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”

And he closed the book,
and gave it back to the attendant, and sat down,
and the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him.
And he began to say to them,
“Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.”

And all spoke well of him,
and wondered at the gracious words
which proceeded out of his mouth.

The Gospel of the Lord.

Communion Antiphon.
God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that all who believe in him may not perish, but may have eternal life.
