  Saturday, December 19
  Daily Gospel (Luke 1: 5-25): There was in the days of Herod, king of Judea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the division of Abijah, married to a descendant of Aaron, called Elizabeth; they were both righteous before God, walking blameless in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord. They had no children, because Elizabeth was barren, and both were advanced in age.

It happened that while office before God in the order of his division, his lot as the use of priestly service, enter the sanctuary of the Lord and burn incense. All the assembled worshipers were praying outside at the hour of incense. He appeared to him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar. Zachary seeing him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him. The angel said: "Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John; And you will have joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth, for he will be great before the Lord; not drink wine or liquor; It will be filled with the Holy Spirit even from his mother's womb, and many of the children of Israel, turn to the Lord their God, and go before him in the spirit and power of Elijah to turn the hearts of parents the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to prepare for the Lord a people prepared. "

Zechariah asked the angel, "How shall I know? Because I am old and my wife is age. " The angel replied, "I am Gabriel, who stands before God, and am sent to speak to you and bring you this good news. Look, I will be silent and unable to speak until the day these things happen, because you did not believe my words, which shall be fulfilled in their time. "

The people were waiting for Zechariah and were surprised by his delay in the sanctuary. When he came out, he could not speak, and realized that he had seen a vision in the Sanctuary; he spoke by signs, and remained speechless. It happened, when the days of his service, he went to his house. Days later, his wife Elizabeth conceived; and he remained hidden for five months, saying: "This is what the Lord did for me in the days in which he looked away my reproach among men."
