TRINITY SUNDAY – FIRST SCRIPTURE READING: Isaiah 6:1-8

In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple.  2Above him stood the seraphim.  Each had six wings:  with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.  3They called to each other, saying:  “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!”  4The foundations of the temple were shaken by their voices, and the house was filled with smoke.  5I said:  “Woe is me!  For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among people with unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts!”  6Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a burning coal he had taken with tongs from the altar.  7He touched my mouth and said:  “Behold, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin forgiven.”  8And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?”  Then I said, “Here am I!  Send me.”
