    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Colossians 3:14-15, 17, 23-24

    126Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth." 27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. 28And God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth." 29And God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for food. 30And to every beast of the earth, and to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food." And it was so. 31And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, a sixth day.21Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2And on the seventh day God finished his work which he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had done. 3So God blessed the seventh day and hallowed it, because on it God rested from all his work which he had done in creation.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 90:2-4, 12-14, 16

    2Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting thou art God. 3Thou turnest man back to the dust, and sayest, "Turn back, O children of men!" 4For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, or as a watch in the night. 12So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom. 13Return, O LORD! How long? Have pity on thy servants! 14Satisfy us in the morning with thy steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. 16Let thy work be manifest to thy servants, and thy glorious power to their children.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 13:54-58

    54and coming to his own country he taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished, and said, "Where did this man get this wisdom and these mighty works? 55Is not this the carpenter's son? Is not his mother called Mary? And are not his brothers James and Joseph and Simon and Judas? 56And are not all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all this?" 57And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house." 58And he did not do many mighty works there, because of their unbelief.

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 15:1-6

    Some who had come down from Judea were instructing the brothers,
    “Unless you are circumcised according to the Mosaic practice,
    you cannot be saved.”
    Because there arose no little dissension and debate
    by Paul and Barnabas with them,
    it was decided that Paul, Barnabas, and some of the others
    should go up to Jerusalem to the Apostles and presbyters
    about this question.
    They were sent on their journey by the Church,
    and passed through Phoenicia and Samaria
    telling of the conversion of the Gentiles,
    and brought great joy to all the brethren.
    When they arrived in Jerusalem,
    they were welcomed by the Church,
    as well as by the Apostles and the presbyters,
    and they reported what God had done with them.
    But some from the party of the Pharisees who had become believers
    stood up and said, “It is necessary to circumcise them
    and direct them to observe the Mosaic law.”

    The Apostles and the presbyters met together to see about this matter.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 122:1-2, 3-4ab, 4cd-5

    R. (see 1) Let us go rejoicing to the house of the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    I rejoiced because they said to me,
    “We will go up to the house of the LORD.”
    And now we have set foot
    within your gates, O Jerusalem.
    R. Let us go rejoicing to the house of the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Jerusalem, built as a city
    with compact unity.
    To it the tribes go up,
    the tribes of the LORD.
    R. Let us go rejoicing to the house of the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    According to the decree for Israel,
    to give thanks to the name of the LORD.
    In it are set up judgment seats,
    seats for the house of David.
    R. Let us go rejoicing to the house of the Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    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 everyone 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.”
