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.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 67

R:  O God, show us kindness and bless us,

and make your face smile on us!

 

O God, show us kindness and bless us,

and make your face smile on us!

For then the earth will acknowledge your ways

and all the Nations will know of your power to save.

 

R:  O God, show us kindness and bless us,

and make your face smile on us!

 

Let all the nations shout and sing for joy

for you dispense true justice to the world —

you guide the nations of the earth!

 

R:  O God, show us kindness and bless us,

and make your face smile on us!

 

Let the people shout and sing for joy;

let all the peoples praise you!

May God bless us, and may God be revered

even to the ends of the earth.

 

R:  O God, show us kindness and bless us,

and make your face smile on us!
