    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 11:19-26

    19Now those who were scattered because of the persecution that arose over Stephen traveled as far as Phoeni'cia and Cyprus and Antioch, speaking the word to none except Jews. 20But there were some of them, men of Cyprus and Cyre'ne, who on coming to Antioch spoke to the Greeks also, preaching the Lord Jesus. 21And the hand of the Lord was with them, and a great number that believed turned to the Lord. 22News of this came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas to Antioch. 23When he came and saw the grace of God, he was glad;and he exhorted them all to remain faithful to the Lord with steadfast purpose;24for he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a large company was added to the Lord. 25So Barnabas went to Tarsus to look for Saul;26and when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. For a whole year they met with the church, and taught a large company of people;and in Antioch the disciples were for the first time called Christians.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 87:1-7

    1On the holy mount stands the city he founded;2the LORD loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwelling places of Jacob. 3Glorious things are spoken of you, O city of God. [Selah] 4Among those who know me I mention Rahab and Babylon;behold, Philistia and Tyre, with Ethiopia -- "This one was born there," they say. 5And of Zion it shall be said, "This one and that one were born in her";for the Most High himself will establish her. 6The LORD records as he registers the peoples, "This one was born there." [Selah] 7Singers and dancers alike say, "All my springs are in you."

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    John 10:22-30

    22It was the feast of the Dedication at Jerusalem;23it was winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the portico of Solomon. 24So the Jews gathered round him and said to him, "How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly." 25Jesus answered them, "I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness to me;26but you do not believe, because you do not belong to my sheep. 27My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me;28and I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand. 29My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand. 30I and the Father are one."

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 4:23-31

    After their release Peter and John went back to their own people
    and reported what the chief priests and elders had told them.
    And when they heard it,
    they raised their voices to God with one accord
    and said, "Sovereign Lord, maker of heaven and earth
    and the sea and all that is in them,
    you said by the Holy Spirit
    through the mouth of our father David, your servant:

    Why did the Gentiles rage
    and the peoples entertain folly?
    The kings of the earth took their stand
    and the princes gathered together
    against the Lord and against his anointed.

    Indeed they gathered in this city
    against your holy servant Jesus whom you anointed,
    Herod and Pontius Pilate,
    together with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel,
    to do what your hand and your will
    had long ago planned to take place.
    And now, Lord, take note of their threats,
    and enable your servants to speak your word
    with all boldness, as you stretch forth your hand to heal,
    and signs and wonders are done
    through the name of your holy servant Jesus."
    As they prayed, the place where they were gathered shook,
    and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit
    and continued to speak the word of God with boldness.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 2:1-3, 4-7a, 7b-9

    R. (see 11d) Blessed are all who take refuge in the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Why do the nations rage
    and the peoples utter folly?
    The kings of the earth rise up,
    and the princes conspire together
    against the LORD and against his anointed:
    "Let us break their fetters
    and cast their bonds from us!"
    R. Blessed are all who take refuge in the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    He who is throned in heaven laughs;
    the LORD derides them.
    Then in anger he speaks to them;
    he terrifies them in his wrath:
    "I myself have set up my king
    on Zion, my holy mountain."
    I will proclaim the decree of the LORD.
    R. Blessed are all who take refuge in the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    The LORD said to me, "You are my Son;
    this day I have begotten you.
    Ask of me and I will give you
    the nations for an inheritance
    and the ends of the earth for your possession.
    You shall rule them with an iron rod;
    you shall shatter them like an earthen dish."
    R. Blessed are all who take refuge in the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 3:1-8

    There was a Pharisee named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews.
    He came to Jesus at night and said to him,
    "Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God,
    for no one can do these signs that you are doing
    unless God is with him."
    Jesus answered and said to him,
    "Amen, amen, I say to you,
    unless one is born from above, he cannot see the Kingdom of God."
    Nicodemus said to him,
    "How can a man once grown old be born again?
    Surely he cannot reenter his mother's womb and be born again, can he?"
    Jesus answered,
    "Amen, amen, I say to you,
    unless one is born of water and Spirit
    he cannot enter the Kingdom of God.
    What is born of flesh is flesh
    and what is born of spirit is spirit.
    Do not be amazed that I told you,
    'You must be born from above.'
    The wind blows where it wills,
    and you can hear the sound it makes,
    but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes;
    so it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit."
