Feast of the Presentation of the Lord  (주님 봉헌 축일 / 축성 생활의 날)

February. 2nd, 2020




1st Reading : MAL 3:1-4

Reader : A reading from the book of the prophet Malachi


Thus says the Lord GOD:

Lo, I am sending my messenger to prepare the way before me; and suddenly there will come to the temple the LORD whom you seek, and the messenger of the covenant whom you desire.

Yes, he is coming, says the LORD of hosts.

But who will endure the day of his coming?

And who can stand when he appears?

For he is like the refiner’s fire, or like the fuller’s lye.

He will sit refining and purifying silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi, refining them like gold or like silver that they may offer due sacrifice to the LORD.

Then the sacrifice of Judah and Jerusalem will please the LORD, as in the days of old, as in years gone by.



Reader : The word of the Lord.

All : Thanks be to God.



Responsorial Psalm : PS 24:7, 8, 9, 10

R : Who is this king of glory? It is the Lord



Lift up, O gates, your lintels; reach up, you ancient portals, that the king of glory may come inR



Who is this king of glory?

The LORD, strong and mighty, the LORD, mighty in battle. R



Lift up, O gates, your lintels; reach up, you ancient portals, that the king of glory may come inR



Who is this king of glory?

The LORD of hosts; he is the king of glory. R



2nd Reading : HEB 2:14-18

Reader : A reading from the letter to the Hebrews


Since the children share in blood and flesh, Jesus likewise shared in them, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the Devil, and free those who through fear of death had been subject to slavery all their life.

Surely he did not help angels but rather the descendants of Abraham; therefore, he had to become like his brothers and sisters in every way, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest before God to expiate the sins of the people.

Because he himself was tested through what he suffered, he is able to help those who are being tested.



Reader : The word of the Lord.

All : Thanks be to God.



Alleluia : LK 2:32

A light of revelation to the Gentiles, and glory for your people Israel.




Gospel : LK 2:22-32

Priest : A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke

All : Glory to you, O Lord.


When the days were completed for their purification according to the law of Moses, Mary and Joseph took Jesus up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord, just as it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that opens the womb shall be consecrated to the Lord, and to offer the sacrifice of a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons, in accordance with the dictate in the law of the Lord.

Now there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon.

This man was righteous and devout, awaiting the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him.

It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he should not see death before he had seen the Christ of the Lord.

He came in the Spirit into the temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus to perform the custom of the law in regard to him, he took him into his arms and blessed God, saying:

"Now, Master, you may let your servant go in peace, according to your word, for my eyes have seen your salvation, which you prepared in the sight of all the peoples: a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and glory for your people Israel."



Priest : The Gospel of the Lord.

All : Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
