FOURTH SUNDAY OF ADVENT
December 20, 2020
Response: “Forever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.”
I will sing for ever of your love, O Lord;
through all ages my mouth will proclaim your truth.
Of this I am sure, that your love lasts forever,
that your truth is firmly established as the heavens. R.
“With my chosen one I have made a covenant;
I have sworn to David my servant:
I will establish your dynasty for ever,
and set up your throne through all ages.” R.
He will say to me: “You are my father,
my God, the rock who saves me!”
I will keep my love for him always;
with him my covenant shall last. R.
SECOND READING: Romans 16.25-27
Brothers and sisters: To the One who is able to strengthen you according to my Gospel and the proclamation of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery that was kept secret for long ages but is now disclosed, and through the prophetic writings is made known to all the Gentiles, according to the command of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of faith— to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever! Amen.
The word of the Lord. R. Thanks be to God.
