Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mass During The Day

Official Translation

Reading 1 – Revelation 11.19a; 12.1-6a, 10ab

God’s temple in heaven was opened,
and the Ark of the Lord’s covenant
was seen in his temple.

A great sign was seen in heaven:
a woman clothed with the sun,
and the moon under her feet,
and on her head a crown of twelve stars.
She was with child.
She cried out in pain, laboring to give birth.

Another sign was seen in heaven.
Behold, an enormous red dragon,
having seven heads and ten horns,
and on his heads seven crowns.
His tail drew one third of the stars of the sky,
and threw them to the earth.

The dragon stood before
the woman who was about to give birth,
so that when she gave birth
he might devour her child.
She gave birth to a son, a male child,
who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron.
Her child was caught up to God and to his throne.
The woman fled into the wilderness,
where she has a place prepared by God.

I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying,
“Now the salvation, the power,
and the Kingdom of our God,
and the authority of his Christ has come.

Responsorial – Psalm 45.10, 11, 12, 16 Resp. 10bc

R. At your right hand the queen stands in gold of Ophir.

At your right hand the queen stands in gold of Ophir.

R. At your right hand the queen stands in gold of Ophir.

Listen, daughter, consider, and turn your ear.
Forget your own people, and even your father’s house.

R. At your right hand the queen stands in gold of Ophir.

So will the king desire your beauty,
honor him, for he is your lord.

R. At your right hand the queen stands in gold of Ophir.

With gladness and rejoicing they shall be led.
They shall enter into the king’s palace.

R. At your right hand the queen stands in gold of Ophir.

Reading 2 – 1 Corinthians 15.20-27

Brothers and Sisters:

Now Christ is risen from the dead,
and is the firstfruits of those who fell asleep.
For since through a human came death,
the resurrection of the dead also came through a human.
For as in Adam all die,
even so in Christ all will be made alive.
But each in their own order:
Christ the firstfruits.
Afterward, at his coming, those who are Christ’s.

Then comes the end,
when he will deliver the kingdom to his God and Father,
when he will tear down
all government and all authority and power.
For it is necessary that he reign,
until he has put all enemies under his feet.
The last enemy to be destroyed is death.
“For he subjected everything under his feet.”

Gospel – Luke 1.39-56

Mary arose in those days
and went into the hill country with haste,
into a town of Judah,
and entered into the house of Zachariah
and greeted Elizabeth.
When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting,
the baby leaped in her womb,
and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
She called out with a loud voice, and said,
“Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb!
Why am I so favored,
that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
For behold, when the voice of your greeting
came to my ears,
the baby leaped in my womb for joy!
Blessed is she who believed,
that there will be a fulfillment of the things
which have been spoken to her from the Lord!”

Mary said:
“My soul magnifies the Lord.
My spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has looked at the
humble state of his handmaid.
For behold, from now on,
all generations will call me blessed.
For the Almighty has done great things for me.
Holy is his name.
His mercy is for generations of generations
for those who fear him.
He has shown strength with his arm.
He has scattered the proud
in the imagination of their hearts.
He has put down princes from their thrones.
And has exalted the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things.
He has sent the rich away empty.
He has given help to Israel, his servant,
remembering his mercy,
as he spoke to our fathers,
to Abraham and his offspring forever.”

Mary stayed with Elizabeth about three months,
and then returned to her home.
