First Reading: Revelation 21:1-5a

A reading from the Book of Revelation

I, John,
saw a new heaven and a new earth;
for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away,
and the sea was no more.
And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem,
coming down out of heaven from God,
prepared as a bride adorned for her husband;
and I heard a great voice from the throne saying,
“Behold, the dwelling of God is with people.
He will dwell with them,
and they shall be his people,
and God himself will be with them;
he will wipe away every tear from their eyes,
and death shall be no more,
neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more,
for the former things have passed away.”
And he who sat upon the throne said,
“Behold, I make all things new.”

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 113:1b-2.3-4.5-6.7-8(R. see2)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. Blessed be the name of the Lord forevermore.

Praise, O servants of the Lord,
praise the name of the Lord!
May the name of the Lord be blest
both now and forevermore!

From the rising of the sun to its setting,
praised be the name of the Lord!
High above all nations is the Lord,
above the heavens his glory.

Who is like the Lord, our God,
who dwells on high,
who lowers himself to look down
upon heaven and earth?

From the dust he lifts up the lowly,
from the ash heap he raises the poor,
to set them in the company of princes,
yes, with the princes of his people.

R/. Blessed be the name of the Lord forevermore.

Gospel: John 2:1-11

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to John

At that time:
There was a marriage at Cana in Galilee,
and the mother of Jesus was there;
Jesus also was invited to the marriage,
with his disciples.
When the wine failed, the mother of Jesus said to him,
“They have no wine.”
And Jesus said to her,
“O woman, what is that to you or to me?
My hour has not yet come.”
His mother said to the servants,
“Do whatever he tells you.”
Now six stone jars were standing there,
for the Jewish rites of purification,
each holding twenty or thirty gallons.
Jesus said to them, “Fill the jars with water.”
And they filled them up to the brim.
He said to them,
“Now draw some out,
and take it to the steward of the feast.”
So they took it.
When the steward of the feast tasted the water now become wine
and did not know where it came from
(though the servants who had drawn the water knew),
the steward of the feast called the bridegroom and said to him,
“Every one serves the good wine first;
and when people have drunk freely,
then the poor wine;
but you have kept the good wine until now.”
This, the first of his signs,
Jesus did at Cana in Galilee,
and manifested his glory;
and his disciples believed in him.
