    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 1:15-17, 20-26

    15In those days Peter stood up among the brethren (the company of persons was in all about a hundred and twenty), and said, 16"Brethren, the scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit spoke beforehand by the mouth of David, concerning Judas who was guide to those who arrested Jesus. 17For he was numbered among us, and was allotted his share in this ministry. 20For it is written in the book of Psalms, `Let his habitation become desolate, and let there be no one to live in it';and `His office let another take.' 21So one of the men who have accompanied us during all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, 22beginning from the baptism of John until the day when he was taken up from us -- one of these men must become with us a witness to his resurrection." 23And they put forward two, Joseph called Barsab'bas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthi'as. 24And they prayed and said, "Lord, who knowest the hearts of all men, show which one of these two thou hast chosen 25to take the place in this ministry and apostleship from which Judas turned aside, to go to his own place." 26And they cast lots for them, and the lot fell on Matthi'as;and he was enrolled with the eleven apostles.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 113:1-8

    1Praise the LORD! Praise, O servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD! 2Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore! 3From the rising of the sun to its setting the name of the LORD is to be praised! 4The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens! 5Who is like the LORD our God, who is seated on high, 6who looks far down upon the heavens and the earth? 7He raises the poor from the dust, and lifts the needy from the ash heap, 8to make them sit with princes, with the princes of his people.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    John 15:9-17

    9As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you;abide in my love. 10If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love. 11These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. 12"This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 14You are my friends if you do what I command you. 15No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing;but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. 16You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide;so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. 17This I command you, to love one another.

  • WEDNESDAY FOURTH WEEK OF EASTER 2014:

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 12:24?13:5a

    The word of God continued to spread and grow.

    After Barnabas and Saul completed their relief mission,
    they returned to Jerusalem,
    taking with them John, who is called Mark.

    Now there were in the Church at Antioch prophets and teachers:
    Barnabas, Symeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene,
    Manaen who was a close friend of Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.
    While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said,
    "Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul
    for the work to which I have called them."
    Then, completing their fasting and prayer,
    they laid hands on them and sent them off.

    So they, sent forth by the Holy Spirit,
    went down to Seleucia
    and from there sailed to Cyprus.
    When they arrived in Salamis,
    they proclaimed the word of God in the Jewish synagogues.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 67:2-3, 5, 6 and 8

    R. (4) O God, let all the nations praise you!
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    May God have pity on us and bless us;
    may he let his face shine upon us.
    So may your way be known upon earth;
    among all nations, your salvation.
    R. O God, let all the nations praise you!
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    May the nations be glad and exult
    because you rule the peoples in equity;
    the nations on the earth you guide.
    R. O God, let all the nations praise you!
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    May the peoples praise you, O God;
    may all the peoples praise you!
    May God bless us,
    and may all the ends of the earth fear him!
    R. O God, let all the nations praise you!
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 12:44-50

    Jesus cried out and said,
    "Whoever believes in me believes not only in me
    but also in the one who sent me,
    and whoever sees me sees the one who sent me.
    I came into the world as light,
    so that everyone who believes in me might not remain in darkness.
    And if anyone hears my words and does not observe them,
    I do not condemn him,
    for I did not come to condemn the world but to save the world.
    Whoever rejects me and does not accept my words
    has something to judge him: the word that I spoke,
    it will condemn him on the last day,
    because I did not speak on my own,
    but the Father who sent me commanded me what to say and speak.
    And I know that his commandment is eternal life.
    So what I say, I say as the Father told me."
