    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 7:51--8:1

    751"You stiff-necked people, uncircumcised in heart and ears, you always resist the Holy Spirit. As your fathers did, so do you. 52Which of the prophets did not your fathers persecute? And they killed those who announced beforehand the coming of the Righteous One, whom you have now betrayed and murdered, 53you who received the law as delivered by angels and did not keep it." 54Now when they heard these things they were enraged, and they ground their teeth against him. 55But he, full of the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God;56and he said, "Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing at the right hand of God." 57But they cried out with a loud voice and stopped their ears and rushed together upon him. 58Then they cast him out of the city and stoned him;and the witnesses laid down their garments at the feet of a young man named Saul. 59And as they were stoning Stephen, he prayed, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit." 60And he knelt down and cried with a loud voice, "Lord, do not hold this sin against them." And when he had said this, he fell asleep.81And Saul was consenting to his death. And on that day a great persecution arose against the church in Jerusalem;and they were all scattered throughout the region of Judea and Sama'ria, except the apostles.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 31:3-4, 6-8, 17, 21

    2Incline thy ear to me, rescue me speedily! Be thou a rock of refuge for me, a strong fortress to save me! 3Yea, thou art my rock and my fortress;for thy name's sake lead me and guide me, 5Into thy hand I commit my spirit;thou hast redeemed me, O LORD, faithful God. 6Thou hatest those who pay regard to vain idols;but I trust in the LORD. 7I will rejoice and be glad for thy steadfast love, because thou hast seen my affliction, thou hast taken heed of my adversities, 16Let thy face shine on thy servant;save me in thy steadfast love! 20In the covert of thy presence thou hidest them from the plots of men;thou holdest them safe under thy shelter from the strife of tongues.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    John 6:30-35

    30So they said to him, "Then what sign do you do, that we may see, and believe you? What work do you perform? 31Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness;as it is written, `He gave them bread from heaven to eat.'" 32Jesus then said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven;my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. 33For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven, and gives life to the world." 34They said to him, "Lord, give us this bread always." 35Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life;he who comes to me shall not hunger, and he who believes in me shall never thirst.

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 2:14, 22-33

    On the day of Pentecost, Peter stood up with the Eleven,
    raised his voice, and proclaimed:
    "You who are Jews, indeed all of you staying in Jerusalem.
    Let this be known to you, and listen to my words.

    "You who are children of Israel, hear these words.
    Jesus the Nazorean was a man commended to you by God
    with mighty deeds, wonders, and signs,
    which God worked through him in your midst, as you yourselves know.
    This man, delivered up by the set plan and foreknowledge of God,
    you killed, using lawless men to crucify him.
    But God raised him up, releasing him from the throes of death,
    because it was impossible for him to be held by it.
    For David says of him:

    I saw the Lord ever before me,
    with him at my right hand I shall not be disturbed.
    Therefore my heart has been glad and my tongue has exulted;
    my flesh, too, will dwell in hope,
    because you will not abandon my soul to the nether world,
    nor will you suffer your holy one to see corruption.
    You have made known to me the paths of life;
    you will fill me with joy in your presence.

    My brothers, one can confidently say to you
    about the patriarch David that he died and was buried,
    and his tomb is in our midst to this day.
    But since he was a prophet and knew that God had sworn an oath to him
    that he would set one of his descendants upon his throne,
    he foresaw and spoke of the resurrection of the Christ,
    that neither was he abandoned to the netherworld
    nor did his flesh see corruption.
    God raised this Jesus;
    of this we are all witnesses.
    Exalted at the right hand of God,
    he poured forth the promise of the Holy Spirit
    that he received from the Father, as you both see and hear."

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 16:1-2a and 5, 7-8, 9-10, 11

    R. (1) Keep me safe, O God;you are my hope.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Keep me, O God, for in you I take refuge;
    I say to the LORD, "My Lord are you."
    O LORD, my allotted portion and my cup,
    you it is who hold fast my lot.
    R. Keep me safe, O God;you are my hope.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    I bless the LORD who counsels me;
    even in the night my heart exhorts me.
    I set the LORD ever before me;
    with him at my right hand I shall not be disturbed.
    R. Keep me safe, O God;you are my hope.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Therefore my heart is glad and my soul rejoices,
    my body, too, abides in confidence;
    Because you will not abandon my soul to the nether world,
    nor will you suffer your faithful one to undergo corruption.
    R. Keep me safe, O God;you are my hope.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    You will show me the path to life,
    fullness of joys in your presence,
    the delights at your right hand forever.
    R. Keep me safe, O God;you are my hope.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 28:8-15

    Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went away quickly from the tomb,
    fearful yet overjoyed,
    and ran to announce the news to his disciples.
    And behold, Jesus met them on their way and greeted them.
    They approached, embraced his feet, and did him homage.
    Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid.
    Go tell my brothers to go to Galilee,
    and there they will see me."

    While they were going, some of the guard went into the city
    and told the chief priests all that had happened.
    The chief priests assembled with the elders and took counsel;
    then they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers,
    telling them, "You are to say,
    'His disciples came by night and stole him while we were asleep.'
    And if this gets to the ears of the governor,
    we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble."
    The soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed.
    And this story has circulated among the Jews to the present day.
