    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 11:19-26

    Those who had been scattered by the persecution
    that arose because of Stephen
    went as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus, and Antioch,
    preaching the word to no one but Jews.
    There were some Cypriots and Cyrenians among them, however,
    who came to Antioch and began to speak to the Greeks as well,
    proclaiming the Lord Jesus.
    The hand of the Lord was with them
    and a great number who believed turned to the Lord.
    The news about them reached the ears of the Church in Jerusalem,
    and they sent Barnabas to go to Antioch.
    When he arrived and saw the grace of God,
    he rejoiced and encouraged them all
    to remain faithful to the Lord in firmness of heart,
    for he was a good man, filled with the Holy Spirit and faith.
    And a large number of people was added to the Lord.
    Then he went to Tarsus to look for Saul,
    and when he had found him he brought him to Antioch.
    For a whole year they met with the Church
    and taught a large number of people,
    and it was in Antioch that the disciples
    were first called Christians.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 87:1b-3, 4-5, 6-7

    R. (117:1a) All you nations, praise the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    His foundation upon the holy mountains
    the LORD loves:
    The gates of Zion,
    more than any dwelling of Jacob.
    Glorious things are said of you,
    O city of God!
    R. All you nations, praise the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    I tell of Egypt and Babylon
    among those who know the LORD;
    Of Philistia, Tyre, Ethiopia:
    "This man was born there."
    And of Zion they shall say:
    "One and all were born in her;
    And he who has established her
    is the Most High LORD."
    R. All you nations, praise the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    They shall note, when the peoples are enrolled:
    "This man was born there."
    And all shall sing, in their festive dance:
    "My home is within you."
    R. All you nations, praise the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 10:22-30

    The feast of the Dedication was taking place in Jerusalem.
    It was winter.
    And Jesus walked about in the temple area on the Portico of Solomon.
    So the Jews gathered around him and said to him,
    "How long are you going to keep us in suspense?
    If you are the Christ, tell us plainly."
    Jesus answered them, "I told you and you do not believe.
    The works I do in my Father's name testify to me.
    But you do not believe, because you are not among my sheep.
    My sheep hear my voice;
    I know them, and they follow me.
    I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish.
    No one can take them out of my hand.
    My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all,
    and no one can take them out of the Father's hand.
    The Father and I are one."
