    2 Timothy 4:1-8
    1 I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom:
    2 preach the word, be urgent in season and out of season, convince, rebuke, and exhort, be unfailing in patience and in teaching.
    3 For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own likings,
    4 and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander into myths.
    5 As for you, always be steady, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfil your ministry.
    6 For I am already on the point of being sacrificed; the time of my departure has come.
    7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
    8 Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 71:8-9, 14-17, 22
    8 My mouth is filled with thy praise, and with thy glory all the day.
    9 Do not cast me off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength is spent.
    14 But I will hope continually, and will praise thee yet more and more.
    15 My mouth will tell of thy righteous acts, of thy deeds of salvation all the day, for their number is past my knowledge.
    16 With the mighty deeds of the Lord GOD I will come, I will praise thy righteousness, thine alone.
    17 O God, from my youth thou hast taught me, and I still proclaim thy wondrous deeds.
    22 I will also praise thee with the harp for thy faithfulness, O my God; I will sing praises to thee with the lyre, O Holy One of Israel.

  • Gospel

    Luke 2:41-51
    41 Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the Passover.
    42 And when he was twelve years old, they went up according to custom;
    43 and when the feast was ended, as they were returning, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem. His parents did not know it,
    44 but supposing him to be in the company they went a day's journey, and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintances;
    45 and when they did not find him, they returned to Jerusalem, seeking him.
    46 After three days they found him in the temple, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions;
    47 and all who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers.
    48 And when they saw him they were astonished; and his mother said to him, "Son, why have you treated us so? Behold, your father and I have been looking for you anxiously."
    49 And he said to them, "How is it that you sought me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father's house?"
    50 And they did not understand the saying which he spoke to them.
    51 And he went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was obedient to them; and his mother kept all these things in her heart.

    Isaiah 61:9-11
    9 Their descendants shall be known among the nations, and their offspring in the midst of the peoples; all who see them shall acknowledge them, that they are a people whom the LORD has blessed.
    10 I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall exult in my God; for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation, he has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
    11 For as the earth brings forth its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring up, so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    1 Samuel 2:1, 4-8
    1 Hannah also prayed and said, "My heart exults in the LORD; my strength is exalted in the LORD. My mouth derides my enemies, because I rejoice in thy salvation.
    4 The bows of the mighty are broken, but the feeble gird on strength.
    5 Those who were full have hired themselves out for bread, but those who were hungry have ceased to hunger. The barren has borne seven, but she who has many children is forlorn.
    6 The LORD kills and brings to life; he brings down to Sheol and raises up.
    7 The LORD makes poor and makes rich; he brings low, he also exalts.
    8 He raises up the poor from the dust; he lifts the needy from the ash heap, to make them sit with princes and inherit a seat of honor. For the pillars of the earth are the LORD'S, and on them he has set the world.
