For Christmas - Cycle B

A reading from the gospel of Jesus according to John (first reader only)

 

Please read slowly and reflectively.

Slowly count to five at the end of each line/

 

IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD/

AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD/

AND THE WORD WAS GOD./

...WHAT CAME TO BE THROUGH HIM WAS LIFE/

THIS LIFE WAS THE LIGHT OF THE HUMAN RACE./

THIS LIGHT SHINES IN THE DARKNESS/

AND THE DARKNESS HAS NOT OVERCOME IT./

...THE WORD BECAME FLESH/

AND MADE HIS DWELLING AMONG US/

WE SAW HIS GLORY/

...AND FROM HIS FULLNESS/

WE HAVE ALL RECEIVED./
