    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.

  • FRIDAY SIXTH WEEK OF EASTER 2015:

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 18:9-18

    One night while Paul was in Corinth, the Lord said to him in a vision,
    “Do not be afraid.
    Go on speaking, and do not be silent, for I am with you.
    No one will attack and harm you,
    for I have many people in this city.”
    He settled there for a year and a half
    and taught the word of God among them.

    But when Gallio was proconsul of Achaia,
    the Jews rose up together against Paul
    and brought him to the tribunal, saying,
    “This man is inducing people to worship God contrary to the law.”
    When Paul was about to reply, Gallio spoke to the Jews,
    “If it were a matter of some crime or malicious fraud,
    I should with reason hear the complaint of you Jews;
    but since it is a question of arguments over doctrine and titles
    and your own law, see to it yourselves.
    I do not wish to be a judge of such matters.”
    And he drove them away from the tribunal.
    They all seized Sosthenes, the synagogue official,
    and beat him in full view of the tribunal.
    But none of this was of concern to Gallio.

    Paul remained for quite some time,
    and after saying farewell to the brothers he sailed for Syria,
    together with Priscilla and Aquila.
    At Cenchreae he had shaved his head because he had taken a vow.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 16:20-23

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “Amen, amen, I say to you, you will weep and mourn,
    while the world rejoices;
    you will grieve, but your grief will become joy.
    When a woman is in labor, she is in anguish because her hour has arrived;
    but when she has given birth to a child,
    she no longer remembers the pain because of her joy
    that a child has been born into the world.
    So you also are now in anguish.
    But I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice,
    and no one will take your joy away from you.
    On that day you will not question me about anything.
    Amen, amen, I say to you,
    whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you.”
