Solemnity of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist

(성 요한 세례자 탄생 대축일)

June. 24th, 2018



1st Reading : IS 49:1-6

Reader : A reading from the prophet Isaiah.


Hear me, O coastlands, listen, O distant peoples.

The LORD called me from birth, from my mother's womb he gave me my name.

He made of me a sharp-edged sword and concealed me in the shadow of his arm.

He made me a polished arrow, in his quiver he hid me.

You are my servant, he said to me, Israel, through whom I show my glory.


Though I thought I had toiled in vain, and for nothing, uselessly, spent my strength, yet my reward is with the LORD, my recompense is with my God.

For now the LORD has spoken who formed me as his servant from the womb, that Jacob may be brought back to him and Israel gathered to him; and I am made glorious in the sight of the LORD, and my God is now my strength

It is too little, he says, for you to be my servant, to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and restore the survivors of Israel; I will make you a light to the nations, that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth.



Reader : The word of the Lord.

All : Thanks be to God.



Responsorial Psalm : Ps 139:1b-3, 13-14ab, 14c-15

R : I praise you, for I am wonderfully made.



O LORD, you have probed me, you know me: you know when I sit and when I stand; you understand my thoughts from afar.

My journeys and my rest you scrutinize, with all my ways you are familiar. R



Truly you have formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother's womb.

I give you thanks that I am fearfully, wonderfully made; wonderful are your works. R



My soul also you knew full well; nor was my frame unknown to you.

When I was made in secret, when I was fashioned in the depths of the earth. R



2nd Reading : ACTS 13:22-26

Reader : A reading from the Acts of the Apostles.


In those days, Paul said:

"God raised up David as king; of him God testified, I have found David, son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will carry out my every wish. From this man's descendants God, according to his promise, has brought to Israel a savior, Jesus. John heralded his coming by proclaiming a baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel; and as John was completing his course, he would say, 'What do you suppose that I am? I am not he. Behold, one is coming after me; I am not worthy to unfasten the sandals of his feet.'"


"My brothers, sons of the family of Abraham, and those others among you who are God-fearing, to us this word of salvation has been sent."



Reader : The word of the Lord.

All : Thanks be to God.




You, child, will be called prophet of the Most High, for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way.




Gospel : LK 1:57-66, 80

Priest : A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke.

All : Glory to you, O Lord.


When the time arrived for Elizabeth to have her child she gave birth to a son.

Her neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had shown his great mercy toward her, and they rejoiced with her.

When they came on the eighth day to circumcise the child, they were going to call him Zechariah after his father, but his mother said in reply, "No. He will be called John."

But they answered her, "There is no one among your relatives who has this name."

So they made signs, asking his father what he wished him to be called.

He asked for a tablet and wrote, "John is his name," and all were amazed.

Immediately his mouth was opened, his tongue freed, and he spoke blessing God.

Then fear came upon all their neighbors, and all these matters were discussed throughout the hill country of Judea.

All who heard these things took them to heart, saying, "What, then, will this child be?"

For surely the hand of the Lord was with him.

The child grew and became strong in spirit, and he was in the desert until the day of his manifestation to Israel.



Priest : The Gospel of the Lord.

All : Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
