    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 Peter 5:5-14

    5Likewise you that are younger be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for "God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble." 6Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that in due time he may exalt you. 7Cast all your anxieties on him, for he cares about you. 8Be sober, be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking some one to devour. 9Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experience of suffering is required of your brotherhood throughout the world. 10And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, establish, and strengthen you. 11To him be the dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 12By Silva'nus, a faithful brother as I regard him, I have written briefly to you, exhorting and declaring that this is the true grace of God;stand fast in it. 13She who is at Babylon, who is likewise chosen, sends you greetings;and so does my son Mark. 14Greet one another with the kiss of love. Peace to all of you that are in Christ.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 89:2-3, 6-7, 16-17

    1I will sing of thy steadfast love, O LORD, for ever;with my mouth I will proclaim thy faithfulness to all generations. 2For thy steadfast love was established for ever, thy faithfulness is firm as the heavens. 5Let the heavens praise thy wonders, O LORD, thy faithfulness in the assembly of the holy ones! 6For who in the skies can be compared to the LORD? Who among the heavenly beings is like the LORD, 15Blessed are the people who know the festal shout, who walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance, 16who exult in thy name all the day, and extol thy righteousness.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mark 16:15-20

    15And he said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation. 16He who believes and is baptized will be saved;but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons;they will speak in new tongues;18they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them;they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover." 19So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. 20And they went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by the signs that attended it. Amen.

  • SATURDAY THIRD WEEK OF EASTER 2015:

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 9:31-42

    The Church throughout all Judea, Galilee, and Samaria
    was at peace.
    She was being built up and walked in the fear of the Lord,
    and with the consolation of the Holy Spirit she grew in numbers.

    As Peter was passing through every region,
    he went down to the holy ones living in Lydda.
    There he found a man named Aeneas,
    who had been confined to bed for eight years, for he was paralyzed.
    Peter said to him,
    "Aeneas, Jesus Christ heals you. Get up and make your bed."
    He got up at once.
    And all the inhabitants of Lydda and Sharon saw him,
    and they turned to the Lord.

    Now in Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha
    (which translated is Dorcas).
    She was completely occupied with good deeds and almsgiving.
    Now during those days she fell sick and died,
    so after washing her, they laid her out in a room upstairs.
    Since Lydda was near Joppa,
    the disciples, hearing that Peter was there,
    sent two men to him with the request,
    "Please come to us without delay."
    So Peter got up and went with them.
    When he arrived, they took him to the room upstairs
    where all the widows came to him weeping
    and showing him the tunics and cloaks
    that Dorcas had made while she was with them.
    Peter sent them all out and knelt down and prayed.
    Then he turned to her body and said, "Tabitha, rise up."
    She opened her eyes, saw Peter, and sat up.
    He gave her his hand and raised her up,
    and when he had called the holy ones and the widows,
    he presented her alive.
    This became known all over Joppa,
    and many came to believe in the Lord.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 116:12-13, 14-15, 16-17

    R. (12) How shall I make a return to the Lord for all the good he has done for me?
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    How shall I make a return to the LORD
    for all the good he has done for me?
    The cup of salvation I will take up,
    and I will call upon the name of the LORD
    R. How shall I make a return to the Lord for all the good he has done for me?
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    My vows to the LORD I will pay
    in the presence of all his people.
    Precious in the eyes of the LORD
    is the death of his faithful ones.
    R. How shall I make a return to the Lord for all the good he has done for me?
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    O LORD, I am your servant;
    I am your servant, the son of your handmaid;
    you have loosed my bonds.
    To you will I offer sacrifice of thanksgiving,
    and I will call upon the name of the LORD.
    R. How shall I make a return to the Lord for all the good he has done for me?
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 6:60-69

    Many of the disciples of Jesus who were listening said,
    "This saying is hard;who can accept it?"
    Since Jesus knew that his disciples were murmuring about this,
    he said to them, "Does this shock you?
    What if you were to see the Son of Man ascending to where he was before?
    It is the Spirit that gives life, while the flesh is of no avail.
    The words I have spoken to you are Spirit and life.
    But there are some of you who do not believe."
    Jesus knew from the beginning the ones who would not believe
    and the one who would betray him.
    And he said, "For this reason I have told you that no one can come to me
    unless it is granted him by my Father."

    As a result of this,
    many of his disciples returned to their former way of life
    and no longer walked with him.
    Jesus then said to the Twelve, "Do you also want to leave?"
    Simon Peter answered him, "Master, to whom shall we go?
    You have the words of eternal life.
    We have come to believe
    and are convinced that you are the Holy One of God."
