    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 26:19-23

    19"Wherefore, O King Agrippa, I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision, 20but declared first to those at Damascus, then at Jerusalem and throughout all the country of Judea, and also to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God and perform deeds worthy of their repentance. 21For this reason the Jews seized me in the temple and tried to kill me. 22To this day I have had the help that comes from God, and so I stand here testifying both to small and great, saying nothing but what the prophets and Moses said would come to pass: 23that the Christ must suffer, and that, by being the first to rise from the dead, he would proclaim light both to the people and to the Gentiles."

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 117:1-2

    1Praise the LORD, all nations! Extol him, all peoples! 2For great is his steadfast love toward us;and the faithfulness of the LORD endures for ever. Praise the LORD!

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    John 10:11-16

    11I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12He who is a hireling and not a shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees;and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. 13He flees because he is a hireling and cares nothing for the sheep. 14I am the good shepherd;I know my own and my own know me, 15as the Father knows me and I know the Father;and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16And I have other sheep, that are not of this fold;I must bring them also, and they will heed my voice. So there shall be one flock, one shepherd.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 22:30;23:6-11

    Wishing to determine the truth
    about why Paul was being accused by the Jews,
    the commander freed him
    and ordered the chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin to convene.
    Then he brought Paul down and made him stand before them.

    Paul was aware that some were Sadducees and some Pharisees,
    so he called out before the Sanhedrin,
    “My brothers, I am a Pharisee, the son of Pharisees;
    I am on trial for hope in the resurrection of the dead.”
    When he said this,
    a dispute broke out between the Pharisees and Sadducees,
    and the group became divided.
    For the Sadducees say that there is no resurrection
    or angels or spirits,
    while the Pharisees acknowledge all three.
    A great uproar occurred,
    and some scribes belonging to the Pharisee party
    stood up and sharply argued,
    “We find nothing wrong with this man.
    Suppose a spirit or an angel has spoken to him?”
    The dispute was so serious that the commander,
    afraid that Paul would be torn to pieces by them,
    ordered his troops to go down and rescue Paul from their midst
    and take him into the compound.
    The following night the Lord stood by him and said, “Take courage.
    For just as you have borne witness to my cause in Jerusalem,
    so you must also bear witness in Rome.”

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 16:1-2a and 5, 7-8, 9-10, 11

    R. (1) Keep me safe, O God;you are my hope.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Keep me, O God, for in you I take refuge;
    I say to the LORD, “My Lord are you.”
    O LORD, my allotted portion and my cup,
    you it is who hold fast my lot.
    R. Keep me safe, O God;you are my hope.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    I bless the LORD who counsels me;
    even in the night my heart exhorts me.
    I set the LORD ever before me;
    with him at my right hand I shall not be disturbed.
    R. Keep me safe, O God;you are my hope.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Therefore my heart is glad and my soul rejoices,
    my body, too, abides in confidence;
    Because you will not abandon my soul to the nether world,
    nor will you suffer your faithful one to undergo corruption.
    R. Keep me safe, O God;you are my hope.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    You will show me the path to life,
    fullness of joys in your presence,
    the delights at your right hand forever.
    R. Keep me safe, O God;you are my hope.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 17:20-26

    Lifting up his eyes to heaven, Jesus prayed saying:
    “I pray not only for these,
    but also for those who will believe in me through their word,
    so that they may all be one,
    as you, Father, are in me and I in you,
    that they also may be in us,
    that the world may believe that you sent me.
    And I have given them the glory you gave me,
    so that they may be one, as we are one,
    I in them and you in me,
    that they may be brought to perfection as one,
    that the world may know that you sent me,
    and that you loved them even as you loved me.
    Father, they are your gift to me.
    I wish that where I am they also may be with me,
    that they may see my glory that you gave me,
    because you loved me before the foundation of the world.
    Righteous Father, the world also does not know you,
    but I know you, and they know that you sent me.
    I made known to them your name and I will make it known,
    that the love with which you loved me
    may be in them and I in them.”
