MASSES FOR THE FEAST OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION:
8:00 am, 12:00 noon
I will put enmity between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and hers;
he will strike at your head,
while you strike at his heel.
Old Testament words that sound familiar from the New Testament.
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.
Seek the LORD while he may be found;
call him while he is near.
We beg you, LORD, save us – Hosanna
we beg you, LORD, give us good fortune!
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,
A shoot shall sprout from the stump of Jesse,
and from his roots a bud shall blossom.
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.
They shall beat their swords into plowshares
and their spears into pruning hooks;
One nation shall not raise the sword against another,
nor shall they train for war again.
Advent Masses: 5 pm (Sat), 7:30 am, 9:30 am, 11:30 am
The days are coming, says the LORD,
when I will fulfill the promise
I made to the house of Israel and Judah.
Come, let us bow down in worship;
let us kneel before the LORD who made us.
For he is our God,
and we are the people he shepherds, the flock he guides.
How beautiful are the feet of those who bring the good news!
But not everyone has heeded the good news;
for Isaiah says, Lord, who has believed what was heard from us?
Thus faith comes from what is heard,
and what is heard comes through the word of Christ.
But when these signs begin to happen,
stand erect and raise your heads
because your redemption is at hand.
Blessed are those who have been called
to the wedding feast of the Lamb.
