    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 17:15, 22--18:1

    1715Those who conducted Paul brought him as far as Athens;and receiving a command for Silas and Timothy to come to him as soon as possible, they departed. 22So Paul, standing in the middle of the Are-op'agus, said: "Men of Athens, I perceive that in every way you are very religious. 23For as I passed along, and observed the objects of your worship, I found also an altar with this inscription, `To an unknown god.' What therefore you worship as unknown, this I proclaim to you. 24The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in shrines made by man, 25nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all men life and breath and everything. 26And he made from one every nation of men to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their habitation, 27that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel after him and find him. Yet he is not far from each one of us, 28for `In him we live and move and have our being';as even some of your poets have said, `For we are indeed his offspring.' 29Being then God's offspring, we ought not to think that the Deity is like gold, or silver, or stone, a representation by the art and imagination of man. 30The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all men everywhere to repent, 31because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed, and of this he has given assurance to all men by raising him from the dead." 32Now when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked;but others said, "We will hear you again about this." 33So Paul went out from among them. 34But some men joined him and believed, among them Dionys'ius the Are-op'agite and a woman named Dam'aris and others with them.181After this he left Athens and went to Corinth.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 148:1-2, 11-14

    1Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD from the heavens, praise him in the heights! 2Praise him, all his angels, praise him, all his host! 11Kings of the earth and all peoples, princes and all rulers of the earth! 12Young men and maidens together, old men and children! 13Let them praise the name of the LORD, for his name alone is exalted;his glory is above earth and heaven. 14He has raised up a horn for his people, praise for all his saints, for the people of Israel who are near to him. Praise the LORD!

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    John 16:12-15

    12"I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth;for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. 14He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. 15All that the Father has is mine;therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.

  • WEDNESDAY SIXTH WEEK OF EASTER 2015:

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 17:15, 22—18:1

    After Paul’s escorts had taken him to Athens,
    they came away with instructions for Silas and Timothy
    to join him as soon as possible.

    Then Paul stood up at the Areopagus and said:
    “You Athenians, I see that in every respect
    you are very religious.
    For as I walked around looking carefully at your shrines,
    I even discovered an altar inscribed, ‘To an Unknown God.’
    What therefore you unknowingly worship, I proclaim to you.
    The God who made the world and all that is in it,
    the Lord of heaven and earth,
    does not dwell in sanctuaries made by human hands,
    nor is he served by human hands because he needs anything.
    Rather it is he who gives to everyone life and breath and everything.
    He made from one the whole human race
    to dwell on the entire surface of the earth,
    and he fixed the ordered seasons and the boundaries of their regions,
    so that people might seek God,
    even perhaps grope for him and find him,
    though indeed he is not far from any one of us.
    For ‘In him we live and move and have our being,’
    as even some of your poets have said,
    ‘For we too are his offspring.’
    Since therefore we are the offspring of God,
    we ought not to think that the divinity is like an image
    fashioned from gold, silver, or stone by human art and imagination.
    God has overlooked the times of ignorance,
    but now he demands that all people everywhere repent
    because he has established a day on which he will ‘judge the world
    with justice’ through a man he has appointed,
    and he has provided confirmation for all
    by raising him from the dead.”

    When they heard about resurrection of the dead,
    some began to scoff, but others said,
    “We should like to hear you on this some other time.”
    And so Paul left them.
    But some did join him, and became believers.
    Among them were Dionysius,
    a member of the Court of the Areopagus,
    a woman named Damaris, and others with them.

    After this he left Athens and went to Corinth.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 148:1-2, 11-12, 13, 14

    praise him in the heights.
    Praise him, all you his angels;
    praise him, all you his hosts.
    R. Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
    or:

    the princes and all the judges of the earth,

    old men and boys.
    R. Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Praise the name of the LORD,
    for his name alone is exalted;
    His majesty is above earth and heaven.
    R. Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    He has lifted up the horn of his people;
    Be this his praise from all his faithful ones,
    from the children of Israel, the people close to him.
    Alleluia.
    R. Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 16:12-15

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now.
    But when he comes, the Spirit of truth,
    he will guide you to all truth.
    He will not speak on his own,
    but he will speak what he hears,
    and will declare to you the things that are coming.
    He will glorify me,
    because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you.
    Everything that the Father has is mine;
    for this reason I told you that he will take from what is mine
    and declare it to you.”
