    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 18:9-18

    9And the Lord said to Paul one night in a vision, "Do not be afraid, but speak and do not be silent;10for I am with you, and no man shall attack you to harm you;for I have many people in this city." 11And he stayed a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them. 12But when Gallio was proconsul of Acha'ia, the Jews made a united attack upon Paul and brought him before the tribunal, 13saying, "This man is persuading men to worship God contrary to the law." 14But when Paul was about to open his mouth, Gallio said to the Jews, "If it were a matter of wrongdoing or vicious crime, I should have reason to bear with you, O Jews;15but since it is a matter of questions about words and names and your own law, see to it yourselves;I refuse to be a judge of these things." 16And he drove them from the tribunal. 17And they all seized Sos'thenes, the ruler of the synagogue, and beat him in front of the tribunal. But Gallio paid no attention to this. 18After this Paul stayed many days longer, and then took leave of the brethren and sailed for Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aq'uila. At Cen'chre-ae he cut his hair, for he had a vow.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 47:2-7

    1Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy! 2For the LORD, the Most High, is terrible, a great king over all the earth. 3He subdued peoples under us, and nations under our feet. 4He chose our heritage for us, the pride of Jacob whom he loves. [Selah] 5God has gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet. 6Sing praises to God, sing praises! Sing praises to our King, sing praises!

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    John 16:20-23

    20Truly, truly, I say to you, you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice;you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will turn into joy. 21When a woman is in travail she has sorrow, because her hour has come;but when she is delivered of the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a child is born into the world. 22So you have sorrow now, but I will see you again and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you. 23In that day you will ask nothing of me. Truly, truly, I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father, he will give it to you in my name.

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    acts 13:13-25

    From Paphos, Paul and his companions
    set sail and arrived at Perga in Pamphylia.
    But John left them and returned to Jerusalem.
    They continued on from Perga and reached Antioch in Pisidia.
    On the sabbath they entered into the synagogue and took their seats.
    After the reading of the law and the prophets,
    the synagogue officials sent word to them,
    “My brothers, if one of you has a word of exhortation
    for the people, please speak.”

    So Paul got up, motioned with his hand, and said,
    “Fellow children of Israel and you others who are God-fearing, listen.
    The God of this people Israel chose our ancestors
    and exalted the people during their sojourn in the land of Egypt.
    With uplifted arm he led them out,
    and for about forty years he put up with them in the desert.
    When he had destroyed seven nations in the land of Canaan,
    he gave them their land as an inheritance
    at the end of about four hundred and fifty years.
    After these things he provided judges up to Samuel the prophet.
    Then they asked for a king.
    God gave them Saul, son of Kish,
    a man from the tribe of Benjamin, for forty years.
    Then he removed him and raised up David as their king;
    of him he testified,
    I have found David, son of Jesse, a man after my own heart;
    he will carry out my every wish
    .
    From this man’s descendants God, according to his promise,
    has brought to Israel a savior, Jesus.
    John heralded his coming by proclaiming a baptism of repentance
    to all the people of Israel;
    and as John was completing his course, he would say,
    ‘What do you suppose that I am? I am not he.
    Behold, one is coming after me;
    I am not worthy to unfasten the sandals of his feet.’“

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    ps 89:2-3, 21-22, 25 and 27

    R. (2) For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    The favors of the LORD I will sing forever;
    through all generations my mouth shall proclaim your faithfulness.
    For you have said, “My kindness is established forever”;
    in heaven you have confirmed your faithfulness.
    R. For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    “I have found David, my servant;
    with my holy oil I have anointed him,
    That my hand may be always with him,
    and that my arm may make him strong.”
    R. For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    “My faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him,
    and through my name shall his horn be exalted.
    He shall say of me, ‘You are my father,
    my God, the Rock, my savior.’”
    R. For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    jn 13:16-20

    When Jesus had washed the disciples’ feet, he said to them:
    “Amen, amen, I say to you, no slave is greater than his master
    nor any messenger greater than the one who sent him.
    If you understand this, blessed are you if you do it.
    I am not speaking of all of you.
    I know those whom I have chosen.
    But so that the Scripture might be fulfilled,
    The one who ate my food has raised his heel against me.
    From now on I am telling you before it happens,
    so that when it happens you may believe that I AM.
    Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever receives the one I send
    receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me.”
