First Reading for the 12th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year C

Zechariah 12:10-11; 13:1

Summary: The LORD promises a spirit of grace and mourning for the pierced one, bringing cleansing from sin for the house of David and Jerusalem.

A Spirit of Grace and Mourning

Thus says the LORD: I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and petition; and they shall look on him whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him as one mourns for an only son, and they shall grieve over him as one grieves over a firstborn.

On that day the mourning in Jerusalem shall be as great as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the plain of Megiddo.

On that day there shall be open to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, a fountain to purify from sin and uncleanness.
