1st Week Advent-Kaonobong

Memorial of Saint Francis Xavier, Priest 

Reading 1: IS 26:1-6

On that day they will sing this song in the land of Judah: “A strong city have we; he sets up walls and ramparts to protect us. Open up the gates to let in a nation that is just, one that keeps faith. A nation of firm purpose you keep in peace; in peace, for its trust in you.

”Trust in the LORD forever! For the LORD is an eternal Rock. He humbles those in high places, and the lofty city he brings down; He tumbles it to the ground, levels it with the dust. It is trampled underfoot by the needy, by the footsteps of the poor.

 

Responsorial Psalm: PS 118:1 AND 8-9, 19-21, 25-27A

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his mercy endures forever.
It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man.
It is better to take refuge in the LORD, than to trust in princes. R. 

Open to me the gates of justice;  I will enter them and give thanks to the LORD.
This gate is the LORD’s;  the just shall enter it.
I will give thanks to you, for you have answered me  and have been my savior. R. 

O LORD, grant salvation! O LORD, grant prosperity!
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD; we bless you from the house of the LORD.
The LORD is God, and he has given us light. R.  

Alleluia, alleluia.
Seek the LORD while he may be found; call him while he is near. Alleluia, 

Gospel: MT 7:21, 24-27

Jesus said to his disciples: “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’
will enter the Kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.

“Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house. 
But it did not collapse; it had been set solidly on rock. And everyone who listens to these words of mine but does not act on them will be like a fool who built his house on sand. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house. And it collapsed and was completely ruined.”

Tibatiba: Tiaki ni kabana ae a kangai Te Uea, te Uea aika a na kamaiuaki ; ma bon ti te koraki ake a karaoa nanon Tamau are i Karawa

Friday First Week of Advent

Reading 1: IS 29:17-24

Thus says the Lord GOD: But a very little while, and Lebanon shall be changed into an orchard, and the orchard be regarded as a forest! On that day the deaf shall hear the words of a book; And out of gloom and darkness, the eyes of the blind shall see.
The lowly will ever find joy in the LORD, and the poor rejoice in the Holy One of Israel. For the tyrant will be no more and the arrogant will have gone;
All who are alert to do evil will be cut off, those whose mere word condemns a man, Who ensnare his defender at the gate, and leave the just man with an empty claim.
Therefore thus says the LORD, the God of the house of Jacob, who redeemed Abraham: Now Jacob shall have nothing to be ashamed of, nor shall his face grow pale. When his children see the work of my hands in his midst, They shall keep my name holy; they shall reverence the Holy One of Jacob, and be in awe of the God of Israel. Those who err in spirit shall acquire understanding, and those who find fault shall receive instruction.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 27:1, 4, 13-14

R The Lord is my light and my salvation.
The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom should I fear?
The LORD is my life’s refuge;  of whom should I be afraid? R. 

 One thing I ask of the LORD; this I seek:
To dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life,
That I may gaze on the loveliness of the LORD, and contemplate his temple. R. 

I believe that I shall see the bounty of the LORD in the land of the living.
Wait for the LORD with courage; be stouthearted, and wait for the LORD. R.   

Alleluia Alleluia. .
Behold, our Lord shall come with power; he will enlighten the eyes of his servants. Alleluia. 

Gospel: MT 9:27-31

As Jesus passed by, two blind men followed him, crying out,
“Son of David, have pity on us!” When he entered the house,
the blind men approached him and Jesus said to them,
“Do you believe that I can do this?”  “Yes, Lord,” they said to him. 
Then he touched their eyes and said, “Let it be done for you according to your faith.”  And their eyes were opened. Jesus warned them sternly, “See that no one knows about this.” But they went out and spread word of him through all that land.

Katenibong 1st Week Advent

Reading 1IS 25:6-10A

On this mountain the LORD of hosts will provide for all peoples
A feast of rich food and choice wines, juicy, rich food and pure, choice wines. On this mountain he will destroy the veil that veils all peoples,
The web that is woven over all nations; he will destroy death forever. The Lord GOD will wipe away the tears from all faces;
The reproach of his people he will remove from the whole earth; for the LORD has spoken.

On that day it will be said: “Behold our God, to whom we looked to save us! This is the LORD for whom we looked; let us rejoice and be glad that he has saved us!” For the hand of the LORD will rest on this mountain.

Responsorial Psalm PS 23:1-3A, 3B-4, 5, 6

I shall live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. In verdant pastures he gives me repose; Beside restful waters he leads me;
he refreshes my soul. R. 

He guides me in right paths. for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk in the dark valley, I fear no evil; for you are at my side, With your rod and your staff, that give me courage. R. 

You spread the table before me, in the sight of my foes;
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. R. 

Only goodness and kindness follow me, all the days of my life;
And I shall dwell in the house of the LORD, for years to come. R. 

Alleluia, alleluia.
Behold, the Lord comes to save his people; blessed are those prepared to meet him. Alleluia.

Gospel MT 15:29-37

At that time: Jesus walked by the Sea of Galilee, went up on the mountain, and sat down there. Great crowds came to him,
having with them the lame, the blind, the deformed, the mute,
and many others. They placed them at his feet, and he cured them. 
The crowds were amazed when they saw the mute speaking, the deformed made whole, the lame walking, and the blind able to see,
and they glorified the God of Israel.

Jesus summoned his disciples and said, “My heart is moved with pity for the crowd, for they have been with me now for three days
and have nothing to eat. I do not want to send them away hungry, for fear they may collapse on the way.” 
The disciples said to him, “Where could we ever get enough bread in this deserted place to satisfy such a crowd?” 
Jesus said to them, “How many loaves do you have?” “Seven,” they replied, “and a few fish.” 
He ordered the crowd to sit down on the ground. Then he took the seven loaves and the fish, gave thanks, broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, who in turn gave them to the crowds. They all ate and were satisfied. They picked up the fragments left over–seven baskets full.

Tuesday 1st First Week of Advent

Reading 1 IS 11:1-10

On that day, A shoot shall sprout from the stump of Jesse, and from his roots a bud shall blossom. The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him: a Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, A Spirit of counsel and of strength, a Spirit of knowledge and of fear of the LORD, and his delight shall be the fear of the LORD. Not by appearance shall he judge,
nor by hearsay shall he decide, But he shall judge the poor with justice, and decide aright for the land’s afflicted. He shall strike the ruthless with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips he shall slay the wicked. Justice shall be the band around his waist, and faithfulness a belt upon his hips.

Then the wolf shall be a guest of the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid;
The calf and the young lion shall browse together, with a little child to guide them.
The cow and the bear shall be neighbors, together their young shall rest; the lion shall eat hay like the ox. The baby shall play by the cobra’s den, and the child lay his hand on the adder’s lair. There shall be no harm or ruin on all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be filled with knowledge of the LORD, as water covers the sea. On that day, The root of Jesse, set up as a signal for the nations, The Gentiles shall seek out, for his dwelling shall be glorious.

Responsorial Psalm; PS 72:1-2, 7-8, 12-13, 17

R: Justice shall flourish in his time, and fullness of peace for ever.
O God, with your judgment endow the king, and with your justice, the king’s son;
He shall govern your people with justice, and your afflicted ones with judgment. R. 

Justice shall flower in his days, and profound peace, till the moon be no more.
May he rule from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth. R. 

He shall rescue the poor when he cries out, and the afflicted when he has no one to help him.
He shall have pity for the lowly and the poor; the lives of the poor he shall save. R. 

May his name be blessed forever; as long as the sun his name shall remain.
In him shall all the tribes of the earth be blessed; all the nations shall proclaim his happiness. R. 

Alleluia, alleluia.
Behold, our Lord shall come with power; he will enlighten the eyes of his servants. Alleluia,

Gospel: LK 10:21-24

Jesus rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, “I give you praise, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for although you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to the childlike. Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him.”

Turning to the disciples in private he said, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see. For I say to you, many prophets and kings desired to see what you see, but did not see it, and to hear what you hear, but did not hear it.”
