Solemnity of Mary — Year A

First Reading: Numbers 6:22-27

Yhwh God said to Moses, “Tell Aaron and his heirs:  This is how you will bless the Israelites. Say to them:

May Yhwh bless you and keep you!

May Yhwh’s face shine upon you and be gracious to you!

May Yhwh look kindly upon you and give you peace!

Thus will they invoke my Name over the Israelites, and then I myself will bless them.”

The Word of God recorded in the book of Numbers.
