    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.

    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.

  • TUESDAY THIRD WEEK OF EASTER 2015:

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 7:51-8:1a

    Stephen said to the people, the elders, and the scribes:
    "You stiff-necked people, uncircumcised in heart and ears,
    you always oppose the Holy Spirit;
    you are just like your ancestors.
    Which of the prophets did your ancestors not persecute?
    They put to death those who foretold the coming of the righteous one,
    whose betrayers and murderers you have now become.
    You received the law as transmitted by angels,
    but you did not observe it."

    When they heard this, they were infuriated,
    and they ground their teeth at him.
    But Stephen, filled with the Holy Spirit,
    looked up intently to heaven and saw the glory of God
    and Jesus standing at the right hand of God,
    and Stephen said, "Behold, I see the heavens opened
    and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God."
    But they cried out in a loud voice,
    covered their ears, and rushed upon him together.
    They threw him out of the city, and began to stone him.
    The witnesses laid down their cloaks
    at the feet of a young man named Saul.
    As they were stoning Stephen, he called out,
    "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit."
    Then he fell to his knees and cried out in a loud voice,
    "Lord, do not hold this sin against them";
    and when he said this, he fell asleep.

    Now Saul was consenting to his execution.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Be my rock of refuge,
    a stronghold to give me safety.

    for your name's sake you will lead and guide me.
    R. Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Into your hands I commend my spirit;
    you will redeem me, O LORD, O faithful God.
    My trust is in the LORD;
    I will rejoice and be glad of your mercy.
    R. Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Let your face shine upon your servant;
    save me in your kindness.
    You hide them in the shelter of your presence
    from the plottings of men.
    R. Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 6:30-35

    The crowd said to Jesus:
    "What sign can you do, that we may see and believe in you?
    What can you do?
    Our ancestors ate manna in the desert, as it is written:

    He gave them bread from heaven to eat."

    So Jesus said to them,
    "Amen, amen, I say to you,
    it was not Moses who gave the bread from heaven;
    my Father gives you the true bread from heaven.
    For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven
    and gives life to the world."

    So they said to Jesus,
    "Sir, give us this bread always."
    Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life;
    whoever comes to me will never hunger,
    and whoever believes in me will never thirst."
