A reading from the Letter to the Hebrews

Brothers and sisters:

You have not approached that which could be touched
and a blazing fire and gloomy darkness
and storm and trumpet blast
and a voice speaking words such that those who heard
begged that no message be further addressed to them. 

No, you have approached Mount Zion,
and the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem,
and countless angels in festal gathering,
and the assembly of the firstborn enrolled in heaven,
and God the judge of all,
and the spirits of the just made perfect,
and Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant,
and the sprinkled blood that speaks more eloquently
than that of Abel.

The word of the Lord
