Reading 1 and//usccb.org/bible/1john/2:12 1 JN 2:12-17 I am writing to you, children,because your sins have been forgiven for his name’s sake.I am writing to you, fathers,because you know him who is from the beginning.I am writing to you, young men,because you have conquered the Evil One.I write to you, children,because you know the Father.I write to you, fathers,because you know him who is from the beginning.I write to you, young men,because you are strong and the word of God remains in you,and you have conquered the Evil One.Do not love the world or the things of the world.If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.For all that is in the world,sensual lust, enticement for the eyes, and a pretentious life,is not from the Father but is from the world.Yet the world and its enticement are passing away.But whoever does the will of God remains forever. Responsorial Psalm and//usccb.org/bible/psalms/96and7 PS 96and7-8A, 8B-9, 10 R. (11a)Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice! Give to the LORD, you families of nations,give to the LORD glory and praisegive to the LORD the glory due his name! R.Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice! Bring gifts, and enter his courtsworship the LORD in holy attire.Tremble before him, all the earth. R.Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice! Say among the nationsand The LORD is king.He has made the world firm, not to be movedhe governs the peoples with equity. R.Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice! Alleluia R.Alleluia, alleluia.A holy day has dawned upon us.Come, you nations, and adore the Lord.Today a great light has come upon the earth.R.Alleluia, alleluia.
