First reading is from 1 Samuel 3:1-10

3 Now the boy Samuel was ministering to the LORD under Eli. The word of
the LORD was rare in those days; visions were not widespread.
2 At that time Eli, whose eyesight had begun to grow dim so that he could not see,
was lying down in his room; 3 the lamp of God had not yet gone out, and Samuel was
lying down in the temple of the LORD, where the ark of God was. 4 Then
the LORD called, ‘Samuel! Samuel!’ and he said, ‘Here I am!’ 5 and ran to Eli, and
said, ‘Here I am, for you called me.’ But he said, ‘I did not call; lie down again.’ So he
went and lay down. 6 The LORD called again, ‘Samuel!’ Samuel got up and went to
Eli, and said, ‘Here I am, for you called me.’ But he said, ‘I did not call, my son; lie
down again.’ 7 Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, and the word of the LORD had
not yet been revealed to him. 8 The LORD called Samuel again, a third time. And he
got up and went to Eli, and said, ‘Here I am, for you called me.’ Then Eli perceived
that the LORD was calling the boy. 9 Therefore Eli said to Samuel, ‘Go, lie down; and
if he calls you, you shall say, “Speak, LORD, for your servant is listening.”’ So Samuel
went and lay down in his place.
10 Now the LORD came and stood there, calling as before, ‘Samuel! Samuel!’ And
Samuel said, ‘Speak, for your servant is listening.’

Glory to You Lord Jesus Christ

43 The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. He found Philip and said to him,
‘Follow me.’ 44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip
found Nathanael and said to him, ‘We have found him about whom Moses in the law
and also the prophets wrote, Jesus son of Joseph from Nazareth.’ 46 Nathanael said
to him, ‘Can anything good come out of Nazareth?’ Philip said to him, ‘Come and
see.’ 47 When Jesus saw Nathanael coming towards him, he said of him, ‘Here is
truly an Israelite in whom there is no deceit!’ 48 Nathanael asked him, ‘Where did you
come to know me?’ Jesus answered, ‘I saw you under the fig tree before Philip
called you.’ 49 Nathanael replied, ‘Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of
Israel!’ 50 Jesus answered, ‘Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under
the fig tree? You will see greater things than these.’ 51 And he said to him, ‘Very truly,
I tell you, you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and
descending upon the Son of Man.’
