First Reading:   Isaiah 6:1-8

This reading narrates Isaiah’s vision of the Lord surrounded by angels. They sing “Holy, holy, holy,” a song the church sings at the beginning of the great thanksgiving. This liturgical text invites the church and all creation to sing in praise of God’s glory. That glory is God’s mercy toward sinners.

Second Reading:   Romans 8:12-17

In describing the new life of faith, Paul refers to all three persons of the Trinity: The Spirit leads us to recognize that we are children of God the Father and sisters and brothers with Christ the Son.

 Gospel:   John 3:1-17

Jesus’ miracles prompt Nicodemus to visit him in secrecy. Jesus tells him about being born of the Spirit and about the Son who has been sent by God to save.
