    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.


    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.


    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.


    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.


    Easter Time.


    Acts 15:7-21

    After much debate had taken place,
    Peter got up and said to the Apostles and the presbyters,
    “My brothers, you are well aware that from early days
    God made his choice among you that through my mouth
    the Gentiles would hear the word of the Gospel and believe.
    And God, who knows the heart,
    bore witness by granting them the Holy Spirit
    just as he did us.
    He made no distinction between us and them,
    for by faith he purified their hearts.
    Why, then, are you now putting God to the test
    by placing on the shoulders of the disciples
    a yoke that neither our ancestors nor we have been able to bear?
    On the contrary, we believe that we are saved
    through the grace of the Lord Jesus, in the same way as they.”
    The whole assembly fell silent,
    and they listened
    while Paul and Barnabas described the signs and wonders
    God had worked among the Gentiles through them.

    After they had fallen silent, James responded,
    “My brothers, listen to me.
    Symeon has described how God first concerned himself
    with acquiring from among the Gentiles a people for his name.
    The words of the prophets agree with this, as is written:

    After this I shall return
    and rebuild the fallen hut of David;
    from its ruins I shall rebuild it
    and raise it up again,
    so that the rest of humanity may seek out the Lord,
    even all the Gentiles on whom my name is invoked.
    Thus says the Lord who accomplishes these things,
    known from of old.

    It is my judgment, therefore,
    that we ought to stop troubling the Gentiles who turn to God,
    but tell them by letter to avoid pollution from idols,
    unlawful marriage, the meat of strangled animals, and blood.
    For Moses, for generations now,
    has had those who proclaim him in every town,
    as he has been read in the synagogues every sabbath.”


    PS 96:1-2a, 2b-3, 10

    R. (3) Proclaim God’s marvelous deeds to all the nations.
    R. Alleluia.
    Sing to the LORD a new song;
    sing to the LORD, all you lands.
    Sing to the LORD;bless his name.
    R. Proclaim God’s marvelous deeds to all the nations.
    R. Alleluia.
    Announce his salvation, day after day.
    Tell his glory among the nations;
    among all peoples, his wondrous deeds.
    R. Proclaim God’s marvelous deeds to all the nations.
    R. Alleluia.
    Say among the nations: The LORD is king.
    He has made the world firm, not to be moved;
    he governs the peoples with equity.
    R. Proclaim God’s marvelous deeds to all the nations.
    R. Alleluia.


    Jn 15:9-11

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “As the Father loves me, so I also love you.
    Remain in my love.
    If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love,
    just as I have kept my Father’s commandments
    and remain in his love.

    “I have told you this so that
    my joy might be in you and
    your joy might be complete.”
