    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 13:44-52

    On the following sabbath
    almost the whole city
    gathered to hear the word of the Lord.
    When the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy
    and with violent abuse contradicted what Paul said.
    Both Paul and Barnabas spoke out boldly and said,
    “It was necessary that the word of God be spoken to you first,
    but since you reject it
    and condemn yourselves as unworthy of eternal life,
    we now turn to the Gentiles.
    For so the Lord has commanded us,
    I have made you a light to the Gentiles,
    that you may be an instrument of salvation
    to the ends of the earth.”


    The Gentiles were delighted when they heard this
    and glorified the word of the Lord.
    All who were destined for eternal life came to believe,
    and the word of the Lord continued to spread
    through the whole region.
    The Jews, however, incited the women of prominence who were worshipers
    and the leading men of the city,
    stirred up a persecution against Paul and Barnabas,
    and expelled them from their territory.
    So they shook the dust from their feet in protest against them
    and went to Iconium.
    The disciples were filled with joy and the Holy Spirit.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 98:1, 2-3ab, 3cd-4

    for he has done wondrous deeds;
    His right hand has won victory for him,
    his holy arm.
    R. All the ends of the earth have seen the saving power of God.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    The LORD has made his salvation known:
    in the sight of the nations he has revealed his justice.
    He has remembered his kindness and his faithfulness
    toward the house of Israel.
    R. All the ends of the earth have seen the saving power of God.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    All the ends of the earth have seen
    the salvation by our God.
    Sing joyfully to the LORD, all you lands;
    break into song;sing praise.
    R. All the ends of the earth have seen the saving power of God.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 14:7-14

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “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 Jesus,
    “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.
    And whatever you ask in my name, I will do,
    so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
    If you ask anything of me in my name, I will do it.”
