Daily Prayer & Reading for January 1, 2023

Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God

Father in Heaven, we proclaim the Virgin Mary to be the Mother of Christ and the Mother of the Church. On this first day of the new year may our communion with Christ, Mary’s Son, bring us ever closer to salvation. Amen.


Luke 2:16-21

The shepherds went in haste to Bethlehem and found Mary and Joseph,  
and the infant lying in the manger.
When they saw this,  
they made known the message  
that had been told them about this child.
All who heard it were amazed  
by what had been told them by the shepherds.
And Mary kept all these things,  
reflecting on them in her heart.
Then the shepherds returned,  
glorifying and praising God  
for all they had heard and seen,  
just as it had been told to them.  

When eight days were completed for his circumcision,  
he was named Jesus, the name given him by the angel  
before he was conceived in the womb.

Padre que estás en los cielos, proclamamos a la Virgen María Madre de Cristo y Madre de la Iglesia. Que en este primer día del nuevo año nuestra comunión con Cristo, el Hijo de María, nos acerque cada vez más a la salvación. Amén.


Lc 2, 16-21

En aquel tiempo, los pastores fueron a toda prisa hacia Belén y encontraron a María, a José y al niño, recostado en el pesebre. Después de verlo, contaron lo que se les había dicho de aquel niño, y cuantos los oían quedaban maravillados. María, por su parte, guardaba todas estas cosas y las meditaba en su corazón.

Los pastores se volvieron a sus campos, alabando y glorificando a Dios por todo cuanto habían visto y oído, según lo que se les había anunciado.

Cumplidos los ocho días, circuncidaron al niño y le pusieron el nombre de Jesús, aquel mismo que había dicho el ángel, antes de que el niño fuera concebido.
