Tomorrow is the 2nd Sunday of Advent. This is the first of two weeks where the Gospel centers on the action of St. John the Baptist who prepares the way for Christ.
Ant. People of Sion, behold! The Lord shall come to save the nations, and the Lord shall make the glory of His voice to be heard in the joy of your hearts.
V. Thou who rulest over Israel, hearken, O thou who guidest the flock of Joseph.
V. Glory be…
Ant. O God, Thou shalt give us life, and Thy people shall rejoice in Thee. Show us, O Lord, Thy mercy, and grant us thy salvation.
Ant. Jerusalem, arise and stand upon the heights, and see the joy which comes to thee from thy God.
