Reading 1 and//usccb.org/bible/1john/2:18 1 JN 2:18-21 Children, it is the last hourand just as you heard that the antichrist was coming,so now many antichrists have appeared.Thus we know this is the last hour.They went out from us, but they were not really of our numberif they had been, they would have remained with us.Their desertion shows that none of them was of our number.But you have the anointing that comes from the Holy One,and you all have knowledge.I write to you not because you do not know the truthbut because you do, and because every lie is alien to the truth. Responsorial Psalm and//usccb.org/bible/psalms/96and1 PS 96and1-2, 11-12, 13 R. (11a)Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice! Sing to the LORD a new songsing to the LORD, all you lands.Sing to the LORD bless his nameannounce his salvation, day after day. R.Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice! Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoicelet the sea and what fills it resoundlet the plains be joyful and all that is in them!Then shall all the trees of the forest exult before the LORD. R.Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice! The LORD comes,he comes to rule the earth.He shall rule the world with justiceand the peoples with his constancy. R.Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice! Alleluia and//usccb.org/bible/john/1:14 JN 1:14A, 12A R.Alleluia, alleluia.The Word of God became flesh and dwelt among us.To those who accepted himhe gave power to become the children of God.R.Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel and//usccb.org/bible/john/1and1 JN 1and1-18 In the beginning was the Word,and the Word was with God,and the Word was God.He was in the beginning with God.All things came to be through him,and without him nothing came to be.What came to be through him was life,and this life was the light of the human racethe light shines in the darkness,and the darkness has not overcome it.A man named John was sent from God.He came for testimony, to testify to the light,so that all might believe through him.He was not the light,but came to testify to the light.The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.He was in the world,and the world came to be through him,but the world did not know him.He came to what was his own,but his own people did not accept him.But to those who did accept himhe gave power to become children of God,to those who believe in his name,who were born not by natural generationnor by human choice nor by a man’s decisionbut of God.And the Word became fleshand made his dwelling among us,and we saw his glory,the glory as of the Father’s only-begotten Son,full of grace and truth.John testified to him and cried out, saying, This was he of whom I said,‘The one who is coming after me ranks ahead of mebecause he existed before me.’”From his fullness we have all received,grace in place of grace,because while the law was given through Moses,grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.No one has ever seen God.The only-begotten Son, God, who is at the Father’s side,has revealed him.
