 Hebrews 10:4-10

A reading from the letter to the Hebrews.

It is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. 

Consequently, when Christ came into the world, he said,
“Sacrifices and offerings you have not desired,
but a body you have prepared for me;

in burnt offerings and sin offerings
you have taken no pleasure.

Then I said, 
‘See, God, I have come to do your will, O God’
(in the scroll of the book it is written of me).”

When Christ said 
“You have neither desired nor taken pleasure 
in sacrifices and offerings 
and burnt offerings and sin offerings” 
(these are offered according to the law),

then he added,
“See, I have come to do your will.” 
He abolishes the first 
in order to establish the second. 

And it is by God’s will that we have been sanctified 
through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ 
once for all.


Luke 1:26-38

Hear the gospel of our Lord Jesus Chrsit according to Luke.

In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God 
to a town in Galilee called Nazareth, 

to a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, 
of the house of David. 
The virgin’s name was Mary. 

And he came to her and said, 
“Greetings, favoured one! The Lord is with you.”

But she was much perplexed by his words 
and pondered what sort of greeting this might be. 

The angel said to her, 
“Do not be afraid, Mary, 
for you have found favour with God. 

And now, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, 
and you will name him Jesus. 

He will be great,
 and will be called the Son of the Most High, 
and the Lord God will give to him the throne of his ancestor David. 

He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, 
and of his kingdom there will be no end.” 

Mary said to the angel, 
“How can this be, since I am a virgin?”

The angel said to her, 
“The Holy Spirit will come upon you, 
and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; 
therefore the child to be born will be holy; 
he will be called Son of God. 

And now, your relative Elizabeth in her old age has also conceived a son;
and this is the sixth month for her who was said to be barren. 

For nothing will be impossible with God.” 

Then Mary said, 
“Here am I, the servant of the Lord; 
let it be with me according to your word.” 
Then the angel departed from her.
