3rd Sunday of Advent (Year B)

Psalm text (Lk 1:46-48, 49-50, 53-54)

My soul rejoices in my God.

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord;
my spririt rejoices in God my Savior;
for He has looked upon His lowly servant.
From this day all generations will call me blessed.

The Alimighty has one great things for me,
and holy is His name.
He has mercy on those who fear Him
in every generation.

He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich He has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of His servant Israel
for he has remembered His promise of mercy.




Gospel Verse (Is 61:1)

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me. Because He has anointed me to bring glad tidings to the poor.
