A Reading from the prophet Isaiah 25: 6 - 9

Isaiah 25: 6-9

On this mountain, for all the peoples,

the Lord will prepare a banquet of rich food,

a banquet of fine wines, of succulent food,

of well-strained wines.

On this mountain He will remove the veil,

which used to cover all peoples,

the pall enveloping all nations;

He will destroy death for ever.

The Lord will wipe away the tears from every cheek;

He will take his people’s shame away

everywhere on earth, for the Lord has spoken.

And on that day, it will be said, “Look this is our God,

in Him we put our hope that he should save us.

This is the Lord.

We put our trust in Him.

Let us exult and rejoice since He has saved us.”
