    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 25:13-21

    13Now when some days had passed, Agrippa the king and Berni'ce arrived at Caesare'a to welcome Festus. 14And as they stayed there many days, Festus laid Paul's case before the king, saying, "There is a man left prisoner by Felix;15and when I was at Jerusalem, the chief priests and the elders of the Jews gave information about him, asking for sentence against him. 16I answered them that it was not the custom of the Romans to give up any one before the accused met the accusers face to face, and had opportunity to make his defense concerning the charge laid against him. 17When therefore they came together here, I made no delay, but on the next day took my seat on the tribunal and ordered the man to be brought in. 18When the accusers stood up, they brought no charge in his case of such evils as I supposed;19but they had certain points of dispute with him about their own superstition and about one Jesus, who was dead, but whom Paul asserted to be alive. 20Being at a loss how to investigate these questions, I asked whether he wished to go to Jerusalem and be tried there regarding them. 21But when Paul had appealed to be kept in custody for the decision of the emperor, I commanded him to be held until I could send him to Caesar."

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 103:1-2, 11-12, 19-20

    1Bless the LORD, O my soul;and all that is within me, bless his holy name! 2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, 11For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;12as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us. 19The LORD has established his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules over all. 20Bless the LORD, O you his angels, you mighty ones who do his word, hearkening to the voice of his word!

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    John 21:15-19

    15When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord;you know that I love you." He said to him, "Feed my lambs." 16A second time he said to him, "Simon, son of John, do you love me?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord;you know that I love you." He said to him, "Tend my sheep." 17He said to him the third time, "Simon, son of John, do you love me?" Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, "Do you love me?" And he said to him, "Lord, you know everything;you know that I love you." Jesus said to him, "Feed my sheep. 18Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were young, you girded yourself and walked where you would;but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will gird you and carry you where you do not wish to go." 19(This he said to show by what death he was to glorify God.) And after this he said to him, "Follow me."

  • FRIDAY SEVENTH WEEK OF EASTER 2015:

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 25:13-21

    King Agrippa and Bernice arrived in Caesarea
    on a visit to Festus.
    Since they spent several days there,
    Festus referred Paul’s case to the king, saying,
    “There is a man here left in custody by Felix.
    When I was in Jerusalem the chief priests and the elders of the Jews
    brought charges against him and demanded his condemnation.
    I answered them that it was not Roman practice
    to hand over an accused person before he has faced his accusers
    and had the opportunity to defend himself against their charge.
    So when they came together here, I made no delay;
    the next day I took my seat on the tribunal
    and ordered the man to be brought in.
    His accusers stood around him,
    but did not charge him with any of the crimes I suspected.
    Instead they had some issues with him about their own religion
    and about a certain Jesus who had died
    but who Paul claimed was alive.
    Since I was at a loss how to investigate this controversy,
    I asked if he were willing to go to Jerusalem
    and there stand trial on these charges.
    And when Paul appealed that he be held in custody
    for the Emperor’s decision,
    I ordered him held until I could send him to Caesar.”

    R. The Lord has established his throne in heaven.
    or:

    For as the heavens are high above the earth,
    so surpassing is his kindness toward those who fear him.
    As far as the east is from the west,
    so far has he put our transgressions from us.
    R. The Lord has established his throne in heaven.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    and his kingdom rules over all.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    John 21:15-19

    After Jesus had revealed himself to his disciples and eaten breakfast with them,
    he said to Simon Peter,
    “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?”
    Simon Peter answered him, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
    Jesus said to him, “Feed my lambs.”
    He then said to Simon Peter a second time,
    “Simon, son of John, do you love me?”
    Simon Peter answered him, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
    He said to him, “Tend my sheep.”
    He said to him the third time,
    “Simon, son of John, do you love me?”
    Peter was distressed that he had said to him a third time,
    “Do you love me?” and he said to him,
    “Lord, you know everything;you know that I love you.”
    Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep.
    Amen, amen, I say to you, when you were younger,
    you used to dress yourself and go where you wanted;
    but when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands,
    and someone else will dress you
    and lead you where you do not want to go.”
    He said this signifying by what kind of death he would glorify God.
    And when he had said this, he said to him, “Follow me.”
