Scripture of the Day

Reading 1 Dn 7:9-10, 13-14
As I watched:Thrones were set upand the Ancient One took his throne.His clothing was bright as snow,and the hair on his head as white as wool;His throne was flames of fire,with wheels of burning fire.A surging stream of fireflowed out from where he sat;Thousands upon thousands were ministering to him,and myriads upon myriads attended him.The court was convened, and the books were opened.As the visions during the night continued, I sawOne like a son of man coming,on the clouds of heaven;When he reached the Ancient Oneand was presented before him,He received dominion, glory, and kingship;nations and peoples of every language serve him.His dominion is an everlasting dominionthat shall not be taken away,his kingship shall not be destroyed.Or Rev 12:7-12ab

War broke out in heaven;Michael and his angels battled against the dragon.The dragon and its angels fought back,but they did not prevailand there was no longer any place for them in heaven.The huge dragon, the ancient serpent,who is called the Devil and Satan,who deceived the whole world,was thrown down to earth,and its angels were thrown down with it.Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:“Now have salvation and power come,and the Kingdom of our Godand the authority of his Anointed.For the accuser of our brothers is cast out,who accuses them before our God day and night.They conquered him by the Blood of the Lamband by the word of their testimony;love for life did not deter them from death.Therefore, rejoice, you heavens,and you who dwell in them.”

Responsorial Psalm Ps 138:1-2ab, 2cde-3, 4-5
R. (1) In the sight of the angels I will sing your praises, Lord.I will give thanks to you, O LORD, with all my heart,for you have heard the words of my mouth;in the presence of the angels I will sing your praise;I will worship at your holy templeand give thanks to your name.R. In the sight of the angels I will sing your praises, Lord.Because of your kindness and your truth;for you have made great above all thingsyour name and your promise.When I called, you answered me;you built up strength within me.R. In the sight of the angels I will sing your praises, Lord.All the kings of the earth shall give thanks to you, O LORD,when they hear the words of your mouth;And they shall sing of the ways of the LORD:“Great is the glory of the LORD.”R. In the sight of the angels I will sing your praises, Lord.
Alleluia Ps 103:21
R. Alleluia, alleluia.Bless the LORD, all you angels,you ministers, who do his will.R. Alleluia, alleluia.Gospel Jn 1:47-51

Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said of him,“Here is a true child of Israel.There is no duplicity in him.”Nathanael said to him, “How do you know me?”Jesus answered and said to him,“Before Philip called you, I saw you under the fig tree.”Nathanael answered him,“Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel.”Jesus answered and said to him,“Do you believebecause I told you that I saw you under the fig tree?You will see greater things than this.”And he said to him, “Amen, amen, I say to you,you will see heaven openedand the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”
