How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of the messengerwho announces peace, who brings good news, who announcessalvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.” Listen! Yoursentinels lift up their voices, together they sing for joy; for inplain sight they see the return of the Lord to Zion. Break forthtogether into singing, you ruins of Jerusalem; for the Lord hascomforted his people, he has redeemed Jerusalem. The Lord hasbared his holy arm before the eyes of all the nations; and all theends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.The word of the Lord: Thanks be to God.PSALM 2:7-13 (Tone V.1)7 Let me announce the decree of the LORD: *he said to me / You are my Son this day have I be-got-tenyou.8 Ask of me, and I will give you the nations for yourin-her-i-tance *and the ends of the earth for your pos-ses-sion.9 You shall crush them with an iron rod *and shatter them like a piece of pot-ter-y.”10 And now you kings be wise; *be warned you ru-lers of the earth.11 Submit to the LORD with fear, *and with trembling bow be-fore him;12 Lest he be angry and you per-ish; *for his wrath is quick-ly kind-led.13 Happy are they all *who take re-fuge in him!Glory be to the Father and to the Son:and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit.
As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be:world with-out end A-men.A READING FROM THE LETTER OF PAUL TO THEEPHESIANS 4:7–8, 11–16 Read by Joyce ConnellEach of us was given grace according to the measure of Christ’sgift. Therefore it is said, “When he ascended on high he madecaptivity itself a captive; he gave gifts to his people.” The giftshe gave were that some would be apostles, some prophets, someevangelists, some pastors and teachers, to equip the saints forthe work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until allof us come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of theSon of God, to maturity, to the measure of the full stature ofChrist. We must no longer be children, tossed to and fro andblown about by every wind of doctrine, by people’s trickery, bytheir craftiness in deceitful scheming. But speaking the truth inlove, we must grow up in every way into him who is the head,into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and knit togetherby every ligament with which it is equipped, as each part isworking properly, promotes the body’s growth in building itselfup in love.The word of the Lord: Thanks be to God.Gospel AlleluiaChoir: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluiaAll: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluiaChoir: Jesus said: ‘I give you a new commandment:love one another, just as I have loved you.’All: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluiaGospeller: The Lord be with you.
All: And also with you.Gospeller: The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christaccording to Mark 1: 1-15.All: Glory to you, Lord Jesus Christ.The beginning of the good news of Jesus Christ, the Son ofGod. As it is written in the prophet Isaiah, “See, I am sendingmy messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way; thevoice of one crying out in the wilderness; ‘Prepare the way ofthe Lord, make his paths straight,’” John the baptizer appearedin the wilderness, proclaiming a baptism of repentancefor the forgiveness of sins. And people from the whole Judeancountryside and all the people of Jerusalem were going out tohim, and were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessingtheir sins. Now John was clothed with camel’s hair, with aleather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey.He proclaimed, “The one who is more powerful than I iscoming after me; I am not worthy to stoop down and untie thethong of his sandals. I have baptized you with water; but he willbaptize you with the Holy Spirit.” In those days Jesus camefrom Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in theJordan. And just as he was coming up out of the water, he sawthe heavens torn apart and the Spirit descending like a dove onhim. And a voice came from heaven, “You are my Son, theBeloved; with you I am well pleased.” And the Spiritimmediately drove him out into the wilderness. He was in thewilderness forty days, tempted by Satan; and he was with thewild beasts; and the angels waited on him. Now after John wasarrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news ofGod, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of Godhas come near; repent, and believe in the good news.”Gospeller: The Gospel of Christ:All: Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
