  • Saints Philip and James, Apostles 2015:

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 Cor 15:1-8

    I am reminding you, brothers and sisters,
    of the Gospel I preached to you,
    which you indeed received and in which you also stand.
    Through it you are also being saved,
    if you hold fast to the word I preached to you,
    unless you believed in vain.
    For I handed on to you as of first importance what I also received:
    that Christ died for our sins
    in accordance with the Scriptures;
    that he was buried;
    that he was raised on the third day
    in accordance with the Scriptures;
    that he appeared to Cephas, then to the Twelve.
    After that, he appeared to more
    than five hundred brothers and sisters at once,
    most of whom are still living,
    though some have fallen asleep.
    After that he appeared to James,
    then to all the Apostles.
    Last of all, as to one born abnormally,
    he appeared to me.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 19:2-3, 4-5

    R. (5) Their message goes out through all the earth.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    The heavens declare the glory of God;
    and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
    Day pours out the word to day;
    and night to night imparts knowledge.
    R. Their message goes out through all the earth.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Not a word nor a discourse
    whose voice is not heard;
    Through all the earth their voice resounds,
    and to the ends of the world, their message.
    R. Their message goes out through all the earth.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 14:6-14

    Jesus said to Thomas, “I am the way and the truth and the life.
    No one comes to the Father except through me.
    If you know me, then you will also know my Father.
    From now on you do know him and have seen him.”
    Philip said to him,
    “Master, show us the Father, and that will be enough for us.”
    Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you for so long a time
    and you still do not know me, Philip?
    Whoever has seen me has seen the Father.
    How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
    Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me?
    The words that I speak to you I do not speak on my own.
    The Father who dwells in me is doing his works.
    Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me,
    or else, believe because of the works themselves.
    Amen, amen, I say to you,
    whoever believes in me will do the works that I do,
    and will do greater ones than these,
    because I am going to the Father.
    And whatever you ask in my name, I will do,
    so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
    If you ask anything of me in my name, I will do it.”

  • FIFTH SUNDAY OF EASTER 2015:

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 9:26-31

    When Saul arrived in Jerusalem he tried to join the disciples,
    but they were all afraid of him,
    not believing that he was a disciple.
    Then Barnabas took charge of him and brought him to the apostles,
    and he reported to them how he had seen the Lord,
    and that he had spoken to him,
    and how in Damascus he had spoken out boldly in the name of Jesus.
    He moved about freely with them in Jerusalem,
    and spoke out boldly in the name of the Lord.
    He also spoke and debated with the Hellenists,
    but they tried to kill him.
    And when the brothers learned of this,
    they took him down to Caesarea
    and sent him on his way to Tarsus.
    The church throughout all Judea, Galilee, and Samaria was at peace.
    It was being built up and walked in the fear of the Lord,
    and with the consolation of the Holy Spirit it grew in numbers.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 22:26-27, 28, 30, 31-32

    R. (26a)
    I will praise you, Lord, in the assembly of your people.
    or:
    R.Alleluia.
    I will fulfill my vows before those who fear the LORD.
    The lowly shall eat their fill;
    they who seek the LORD shall praise him:
    "May your hearts live forever!"
    R.I will praise you, Lord, in the assembly of your people.
    or:
    R.Alleluia.
    All the ends of the earth
    shall remember and turn to the LORD;
    all the families of the nations
    shall bow down before him.
    R.I will praise you, Lord, in the assembly of your people.
    or:
    R.Alleluia.
    To him alone shall bow down
    all who sleep in the earth;
    before him shall bend
    all who go down into the dust.
    R.I will praise you, Lord, in the assembly of your people.
    or:
    R.Alleluia.
    And to him my soul shall live;
    my descendants shall serve him.
    Let the coming generation be told of the LORD
    that they may proclaim to a people yet to be born
    the justice he has shown.
    R.I will praise you, Lord, in the assembly of your people.
    or:
    R.Alleluia.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 Jn 3:18-24

    Children, let us love not in word or speech
    but in deed and truth.
    Now this is how we shall know that we belong to the truth
    and reassure our hearts before him
    in whatever our hearts condemn,
    for God is greater than our hearts and knows everything.
    Beloved, if our hearts do not condemn us,
    we have confidence in God
    and receive from him whatever we ask,
    because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him.
    And his commandment is this:
    we should believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ,
    and love one another just as he commanded us.
    Those who keep his commandments remain in him, and he in them,
    and the way we know that he remains in us
    is from the Spirit he gave us.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 15:1-8

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    "I am the true vine, and my Father is the vine grower.
    He takes away every branch in me that does not bear fruit,
    and every one that does he prunes so that it bears more fruit.
    You are already pruned because of the word that I spoke to you.
    Remain in me, as I remain in you.
    Just as a branch cannot bear fruit on its own
    unless it remains on the vine,
    so neither can you unless you remain in me.
    I am the vine, you are the branches.
    Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit,
    because without me you can do nothing.
    Anyone who does not remain in me
    will be thrown out like a branch and wither;
    people will gather them and throw them into a fire
    and they will be burned.
    If you remain in me and my words remain in you,
    ask for whatever you want and it will be done for you.
    By this is my Father glorified,
    that you bear much fruit and become my disciples."
