    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 2:44-47

    44And all who believed were together and had all things in common;45and they sold their possessions and goods and distributed them to all, as any had need. 46And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they partook of food with glad and generous hearts, 47praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Colossians 3:12-17

    12Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, and patience, 13forbearing one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other;as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. 14And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. 15And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. 16Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teach and admonish one another in all wisdom, and sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Psalms 131:1-3

    1O LORD, my heart is not lifted up, my eyes are not raised too high;I do not occupy myself with things too great and too marvelous for me. 2But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a child quieted at its mother's breast;like a child that is quieted is my soul. 3O Israel, hope in the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Luke 12:22-31

    22And he said to his disciples, "Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you shall eat, nor about your body, what you shall put on. 23For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. 24Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds! 25And which of you by being anxious can add a cubit to his span of life? 26If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest? 27Consider the lilies, how they grow;they neither toil nor spin;yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 28But if God so clothes the grass which is alive in the field today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, O men of little faith! 29And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor be of anxious mind. 30For all the nations of the world seek these things;and your Father knows that you need them. 31Instead, seek his kingdom, and these things shall be yours as well.

  • FIFTH SUNDAY OF EASTER 2014:

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    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.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

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

    R/
    Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you.
    or:
    R/
    Alleluia.
    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.
    R/
    Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you.
    or:
    R/
    Alleluia.
    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.
    R/
    Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you.
    or:
    R/
    Alleluia.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 pt 2:4-9

    Beloved:
    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.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    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."
