    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 John 5:1-5

    1Every one who believes that Jesus is the Christ is a child of God, and every one who loves the parent loves the child. 2By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments. 3For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome. 4For whatever is born of God overcomes the world;and this is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith. 5Who is it that overcomes the world but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 37:3-6, 30-31

    3Trust in the LORD, and do good;so you will dwell in the land, and enjoy security. 4Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. 5Commit your way to the LORD;trust in him, and he will act. 6He will bring forth your vindication as the light, and your right as the noonday. 30The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks justice. 31The law of his God is in his heart;his steps do not slip.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 10:22-25

    22and you will be hated by all for my name's sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved. 23When they persecute you in one town, flee to the next;for truly, I say to you, you will not have gone through all the towns of Israel, before the Son of man comes. 24"A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master;25it is enough for the disciple to be like his teacher, and the servant like his master. If they have called the master of the house Be-el'zebul, how much more will they malign those of his household.

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 5:34-42

    A Pharisee in the Sanhedrin named Gamaliel,
    a teacher of the law, respected by all the people,
    stood up, ordered the Apostles to be put outside for a short time,
    and said to the Sanhedrin, "Fellow children of Israel,
    be careful what you are about to do to these men.
    Some time ago, Theudas appeared, claiming to be someone important,
    and about four hundred men joined him, but he was killed,
    and all those who were loyal to him
    were disbanded and came to nothing.
    After him came Judas the Galilean at the time of the census.
    He also drew people after him,
    but he too perished and all who were loyal to him were scattered.
    So now I tell you,
    have nothing to do with these men, and let them go.
    For if this endeavor or this activity is of human origin,
    it will destroy itself.
    But if it comes from God, you will not be able to destroy them;
    you may even find yourselves fighting against God."
    They were persuaded by him.
    After recalling the Apostles, they had them flogged,
    ordered them to stop speaking in the name of Jesus,
    and dismissed them.
    So they left the presence of the Sanhedrin,
    rejoicing that they had been found worthy
    to suffer dishonor for the sake of the name.
    And all day long, both at the temple and in their homes,
    they did not stop teaching and proclaiming the Christ, Jesus.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 27:1, 4, 13-14

    R. (see 4abc) One thing I seek: to dwell in the house of the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    The LORD is my light and my salvation;
    whom should I fear?
    The LORD is my life's refuge;
    of whom should I be afraid?
    R. One thing I seek: to dwell in the house of the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    One thing I ask of the LORD
    this I seek:
    To dwell in the house of the LORD
    all the days of my life,
    That I may gaze on the loveliness of the LORD
    and contemplate his temple.
    R. One thing I seek: to dwell in the house of the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    I believe that I shall see the bounty of the LORD
    in the land of the living.
    Wait for the LORD with courage;
    be stouthearted, and wait for the LORD.
    R. One thing I seek: to dwell in the house of the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 6:1-15

    Jesus went across the Sea of Galilee.
    A large crowd followed him,
    because they saw the signs he was performing on the sick.
    Jesus went up on the mountain,
    and there he sat down with his disciples.
    The Jewish feast of Passover was near.
    When Jesus raised his eyes and saw that a large crowd was coming to him,
    he said to Philip, "Where can we buy enough food for them to eat?"
    He said this to test him,
    because he himself knew what he was going to do.
    Philip answered him,
    "Two hundred days' wages worth of food would not be enough
    for each of them to have a little."
    One of his disciples,
    Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, said to him,
    "There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish;
    but what good are these for so many?"
    Jesus said, "Have the people recline."
    Now there was a great deal of grass in that place.
    So the men reclined, about five thousand in number.
    Then Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks,
    and distributed them to those who were reclining,
    and also as much of the fish as they wanted.
    When they had had their fill, he said to his disciples,
    "Gather the fragments left over,
    so that nothing will be wasted."
    So they collected them,
    and filled twelve wicker baskets with fragments
    from the five barley loaves that had been more than they could eat.
    When the people saw the sign he had done, they said,
    "This is truly the Prophet, the one who is to come into the world."
    Since Jesus knew that they were going to come and carry him off
    to make him king,
    he withdrew again to the mountain alone.
