    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.


    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.


    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.


    Acts 11:1-18

    The Apostles and the brothers who were in Judea
    heard that the Gentiles too had accepted the word of God.
    So when Peter went up to Jerusalem
    the circumcised believers confronted him, saying,
    'You entered the house of uncircumcised people and ate with them."
    Peter began and explained it to them step by step, saying,
    "I was at prayer in the city of Joppa
    when in a trance I had a vision,
    something resembling a large sheet coming down,
    lowered from the sky by its four corners, and it came to me.
    Looking intently into it,
    I observed and saw the four-legged animals of the earth,
    the wild beasts, the reptiles, and the birds of the sky.
    I also heard a voice say to me, 'Get up, Peter. Slaughter and eat.'
    But I said, 'Certainly not, sir,
    because nothing profane or unclean has ever entered my mouth.'
    But a second time a voice from heaven answered,
    'What God has made clean, you are not to call profane.'
    This happened three times,
    and then everything was drawn up again into the sky.
    Just then three men appeared at the house where we were,
    who had been sent to me from Caesarea.
    The Spirit told me to accompany them without discriminating.
    These six brothers also went with me,
    and we entered the man's house.
    He related to us how he had seen the angel standing in his house, saying,
    'Send someone to Joppa and summon Simon, who is called Peter,
    who will speak words to you
    by which you and all your household will be saved.'
    As I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell upon them
    as it had upon us at the beginning,
    and I remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said,
    'John baptized with water
    but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.'
    If then God gave them the same gift he gave to us
    when we came to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ,
    who was I to be able to hinder God?"
    When they heard this,
    they stopped objecting and glorified God, saying,
    "God has then granted life-giving repentance to the Gentiles too."


    Ps 42:2-3; 43:3, 4

    R. (see 3a) Athirst is my soul for the living God.
    R. Alleluia.
    As the hind longs for the running waters,
    so my soul longs for you, O God.
    Athirst is my soul for God, the living God.
    When shall I go and behold the face of God?
    R. Athirst is my soul for the living God.
    R. Alleluia.
    Send forth your light and your fidelity;
    they shall lead me on
    And bring me to your holy mountain,
    to your dwelling-place.
    R. Athirst is my soul for the living God.
    R. Alleluia.
    Then will I go in to the altar of God,
    the God of my gladness and joy;
    Then will I give you thanks upon the harp,
    O God, my God!
    R. Athirst is my soul for the living God.
    R. Alleluia.


    Jn 10:1-10

    Jesus said:
    "Amen, amen, I say to you,
    whoever does not enter a sheepfold through the gate
    but climbs over elsewhere is a thief and a robber.
    But whoever enters through the gate is the shepherd of the sheep.
    The gatekeeper opens it for him, and the sheep hear his voice,
    as he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.
    When he has driven out all his own,
    he walks ahead of them, and the sheep follow him,
    because they recognize his voice.
    But they will not follow a stranger;
    they will run away from him,
    because they do not recognize the voice of strangers."
    Although Jesus used this figure of speech,
    they did not realize what he was trying to tell them.

    So Jesus said again, "Amen, amen, I say to you,
    I am the gate for the sheep.
    All who came before me are thieves and robbers,
    but the sheep did not listen to them.
    I am the gate.
    Whoever enters through me will be saved,
    and will come in and go out and find pasture.
    A thief comes only to steal and slaughter and destroy;
    I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly."
