    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.


    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.


    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.


    Easter Time.


    acts 6:1-7

    As the number of disciples continued to grow,
    the Hellenists complained against the Hebrews
    because their widows
    were being neglected in the daily distribution.
    So the Twelve called together the community of the disciples and said,
    "It is not right for us to neglect the word of God to serve at table.
    Brothers, select from among you seven reputable men,
    filled with the Spirit and wisdom,
    whom we shall appoint to this task,
    whereas we shall devote ourselves to prayer
    and to the ministry of the word."
    The proposal was acceptable to the whole community,
    so they chose Stephen, a man filled with faith and the Holy Spirit,
    also Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas,
    and Nicholas of Antioch, a convert to Judaism.
    They presented these men to the apostles
    who prayed and laid hands on them.
    The word of God continued to spread,
    and the number of the disciples in Jerusalem increased greatly;
    even a large group of priests were becoming obedient to the faith.


    ps 33:1-2, 4-5, 18-19

    R/ (22)
    Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you.
    Exult, you just, in the LORD;
    praise from the upright is fitting.
    Give thanks to the LORD on the harp;
    with the ten-stringed lyre chant his praises.
    Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you.
    Upright is the word of the LORD,
    and all his works are trustworthy.
    He loves justice and right;
    of the kindness of the LORD the earth is full.
    Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you.
    See, the eyes of the LORD are upon those who fear him,
    upon those who hope for his kindness,
    To deliver them from death
    and preserve them in spite of famine.
    Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you.


    1 pt 2:4-9

    Come to him, a living stone, rejected by human beings
    but chosen and precious in the sight of God,
    and, like living stones,
    let yourselves be built into a spiritual house
    to be a holy priesthood to offer spiritual sacrifices
    acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
    For it says in Scripture:
    Behold, I am laying a stone in Zion, a cornerstone, chosen and precious, and whoever believes in it shall not be put to shame
    Therefore, its value is for you who have faith, but for those without faith:
    The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone
    , and
    A stone that will make people stumble, and a rock that will make them fall
    They stumble by disobeying the word, as is their destiny.
    You are "a chosen race, a royal priesthood,
    a holy nation, a people of his own,
    so that you may announce the praises" of him
    who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.


    jn 14:1-12

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    "Do not let your hearts be troubled.
    You have faith in God;have faith also in me.
    In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places.
    If there were not,
    would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?
    And if I go and prepare a place for you,
    I will come back again and take you to myself,
    so that where I am you also may be.
    Where I am going you know the way."
    Thomas said to him,
    "Master, we do not know where you are going;
    how can we know the way?"
    Jesus said to him, "I am the way and the truth and the life.
    No one comes to the Father except through me.
    If you know me, then you will also know my Father.
    From now on you do know him and have seen him."
    Philip said to him,
    "Master, show us the Father, and that will be enough for us."
    Jesus said to him, "Have I been with you for so long a time
    and you still do not know me, Philip?
    Whoever has seen me has seen the Father.
    How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
    Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me?
    The words that I speak to you I do not speak on my own.
    The Father who dwells in me is doing his works.
    Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me,
    or else, believe because of the works themselves.
    Amen, amen, I say to you,
    whoever believes in me will do the works that I do,
    and will do greater ones than these,
    because I am going to the Father."
