First Reading: Daniel 7:9-10.13-14

A reading from the Book of the Prophet Daniel.

As I looked, thrones were placed
and one that was ancient of days took his seat;
his clothing was white as snow,
and the hair of his head like pure wool;
his throne was fiery flames,
its wheels were burning fire.
A stream of fire issued
and came forth from before him;
a thousand thousands served him,
and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him;
the court sat in judgment,
and the books were opened.
I saw in the night visions,
and behold, with the clouds of heaven
there came one like a son of man,
and he came to the Ancient of Days
and was presented before him.
And to him was given dominion
and glory and kingdom,
that all peoples, nations, and languages
should serve him;
his dominion is an everlasting dominion,
which shall not pass away,
and his kingdom one
that shall not be destroyed.

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 138:1-2a.2bcd-3.4-5 (R. see 1b)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. In the presence of the angels I praise you, O Lord.

I thank you, Lord, with all my heart;
you have heard the words of my mouth.
In the presence of the angels I praise you.
I bow down toward your holy temple.

I give thanks to your name
for your merciful love and your faithfulness.
You have exalted your name and your promise over all.
On the day I called, you answered me;
you increased the strength of my soul.

All earth’s kings shall thank you, O Lord,
when they hear the words of your mouth.
They shall sing of the ways of the Lord,
“How great is the glory of the Lord!”

R/. In the presence of the angels I praise you, O Lord.

Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, Alleluia
Bless the Lord, all you his hosts, his ministers that do his will.
Alleluia.

 

 

 

 

Gospel: John 1:47-51

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to John.

At that time:
Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him,
and said of him, “Behold, an Israelite indeed,
in whom is no guile!”
Nathanael said to him,
“How do you know me?”

Jesus answered him,
“Before Philip called you
when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.”

Nathanael answered him,
“Rabbi, you are the Son of God!
You are the King of Israel!”

Jesus answered him,
“Because I said to you, I saw you under the fig tree,
do you believe?
You shall see greater things than these.”
And he said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you,
you will see heaven opened,
and the angels of God ascending and descending
upon the Son of man.”

The Gospel of the Lord

Communion Antiphon
