Jesús, lleno de la alegría en el Espíritu Santo.
Lectura del santo Evangelio según san Lucas 10, 21-24
En aquella hora Jesús se lleno de alegría en el Espíritu Santo y dijo:
«Te doy gracias, Padre, Señor del cielo y de la tierra, porque has escondido estas cosas a los sabios y a los entendidos, y las has revelado a los pequeños. Sí, Padre, porque así te ha parecido bien.
Todo me ha sido entregado por mi Padre, y nadie conoce quién es el Hijo sino el Padre; ni quién es el Padre sino el Hijo y aquel a quien el Hijo se lo quiere revelar».
Y volviéndose a sus discípulos, les dijo aparte:
«¡Bienaventurados los ojos que ven lo que vosotros veis! Porque os digo que muchos profetas y reyes quisieron ver lo que vosotros veis, y no lo vieron; y oír lo que vosotros oís, y no lo oyeron».

WORD OF THE DAY
READING OF THE DAY
A reading from the Book of Isaiah
On that day,
A shoot shall sprout from the stump of Jesse,
and from his roots a bud shall blossom.
The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him:
a Spirit of wisdom and of understanding,
A Spirit of counsel and of strength,
a Spirit of knowledge and of fear of the LORD,
and his delight shall be the fear of the LORD.
Not by appearance shall he judge,
nor by hearsay shall he decide,
But he shall judge the poor with justice,
and decide aright for the land’s afflicted.
He shall strike the ruthless with the rod of his mouth,
and with the breath of his lips he shall slay the wicked.
Justice shall be the band around his waist,
and faithfulness a belt upon his hips.
Then the wolf shall be a guest of the lamb,
and the leopard shall lie down with the kid;
The calf and the young lion shall browse together,
with a little child to guide them.
The cow and the bear shall be neighbors,
together their young shall rest;
the lion shall eat hay like the ox.
The baby shall play by the cobra’s den,
and the child lay his hand on the adder’s lair.
There shall be no harm or ruin on all my holy mountain;
for the earth shall be filled with knowledge of the LORD,
as water covers the sea.
On that day,
The root of Jesse,
set up as a signal for the nations,
The Gentiles shall seek out,
for his dwelling shall be glorious.
GOSPEL OF THE DAY
From the Gospel according to Luke
Jesus rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said,
“I give you praise, Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
for although you have hidden these things
from the wise and the learned
you have revealed them to the childlike.
Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will.
All things have been handed over to me by my Father.
No one knows who the Son is except the Father,
and who the Father is except the Son
and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him.”
Turning to the disciples in private he said,
“Blessed are the eyes that see what you see.
For I say to you,
many prophets and kings desired to see what you see,
but did not see it,
and to hear what you hear, but did not hear it.”
