    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 16:22-34

    22The crowd joined in attacking them;and the magistrates tore the garments off them and gave orders to beat them with rods. 23And when they had inflicted many blows upon them, they threw them into prison, charging the jailer to keep them safely. 24Having received this charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks. 25But about midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them, 26and suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken;and immediately all the doors were opened and every one's fetters were unfastened. 27When the jailer woke and saw that the prison doors were open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself, supposing that the prisoners had escaped. 28But Paul cried with a loud voice, "Do not harm yourself, for we are all here." 29And he called for lights and rushed in, and trembling with fear he fell down before Paul and Silas, 30and brought them out and said, "Men, what must I do to be saved?" 31And they said, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household." 32And they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all that were in his house. 33And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their wounds, and he was baptized at once, with all his family. 34Then he brought them up into his house, and set food before them;and he rejoiced with all his household that he had believed in God.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 138:1-3, 7-8

    1I give thee thanks, O LORD, with my whole heart;before the gods I sing thy praise;2I bow down toward thy holy temple and give thanks to thy name for thy steadfast love and thy faithfulness;for thou hast exalted above everything thy name and thy word. 3On the day I called, thou didst answer me, my strength of soul thou didst increase. 7Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou dost preserve my life;thou dost stretch out thy hand against the wrath of my enemies, and thy right hand delivers me. 8The LORD will fulfil his purpose for me;thy steadfast love, O LORD, endures for ever. Do not forsake the work of thy hands.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    John 16:5-11

    5But now I am going to him who sent me;yet none of you asks me, `Where are you going?' 6But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your hearts. 7Nevertheless I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Counselor will not come to you;but if I go, I will send him to you. 8And when he comes, he will convince the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: 9concerning sin, because they do not believe in me;10concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no more;11concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.

  • TUESDAY SIXTH WEEK OF EASTER 2015:

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 16:22-34

    The crowd in Philippi joined in the attack on Paul and Silas,
    and the magistrates had them stripped
    and ordered them to be beaten with rods.
    After inflicting many blows on them,
    they threw them into prison
    and instructed the jailer to guard them securely.
    When he received these instructions, he put them in the innermost cell
    and secured their feet to a stake.

    About midnight, while Paul and Silas were praying
    and singing hymns to God as the prisoners listened,
    there was suddenly such a severe earthquake
    that the foundations of the jail shook;
    all the doors flew open, and the chains of all were pulled loose.
    When the jailer woke up and saw the prison doors wide open,
    he drew his sword and was about to kill himself,
    thinking that the prisoners had escaped.
    But Paul shouted out in a loud voice,
    “Do no harm to yourself;we are all here.”
    He asked for a light and rushed in and,
    trembling with fear, he fell down before Paul and Silas.
    Then he brought them out and said,
    “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
    And they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus
    and you and your household will be saved.”
    So they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to everyone in his house.
    He took them in at that hour of the night and bathed their wounds;
    then he and all his family were baptized at once.
    He brought them up into his house and provided a meal
    and with his household rejoiced at having come to faith in God.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 138:1-2ab, 2cde-3, 7c-8

    R. (7c) Your right hand saves me, O Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    I will give thanks to you, O LORD, with all my heart,
    for you have heard the words of my mouth;
    in the presence of the angels I will sing your praise;
    I will worship at your holy temple,
    and give thanks to your name.
    R. Your right hand saves me, O Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Because of your kindness and your truth,
    you have made great above all things
    your name and your promise.
    When I called, you answered me;
    you built up strength within me.
    R. Your right hand saves me, O Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Your right hand saves me.
    The LORD will complete what he has done for me;
    your kindness, O LORD, endures forever;
    forsake not the work of your hands.
    R. Your right hand saves me, O Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 16:5-11

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “Now I am going to the one who sent me,
    and not one of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’
    But because I told you this, grief has filled your hearts.
    But I tell you the truth, it is better for you that I go.
    For if I do not go, the Advocate will not come to you.
    But if I go, I will send him to you.
    And when he comes he will convict the world
    in regard to sin and righteousness and condemnation:
    sin, because they do not believe in me;
    righteousness, because I am going to the Father
    and you will no longer see me;
    condemnation, because the ruler of this world has been condemned.”
