  • Saint Barnabas, the Apostle 2011:

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 11:21b-26; 13:1-3

    In those days 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.

    Now there were in the Church at Antioch prophets and teachers:
    Barnabas, Symeon who was called Niger,
    Lucius of Cyrene,
    Manaen who was a close friend of Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.
    While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said,
    "Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul
    for the work to which I have called them."
    Then, completing their fasting and prayer,
    they laid hands on them and sent them off.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 98:1, 2-3ab, 3cd-4, 5-6

    R. (see 2b)  The Lord has revealed to the nations his saving power.
    Sing to the LORD a new song,
    for he has done wondrous deeds;
    His right hand has won victory for him,
    his holy arm.
    R. The Lord has revealed to the nations his saving power.
    The LORD has made his salvation known:
    in the sight of the nations he has revealed his justice.
    He has remembered his kindness and his faithfulness
    toward the house of Israel.
    R. The Lord has revealed to the nations his saving power.
    All the ends of the earth have seen
    the salvation by our God.
    Sing joyfully to the LORD, all you lands;
    break into song; sing praise.
    R. The Lord has revealed to the nations his saving power.
    Sing praise to the LORD with the harp,
    with the harp and melodious song.
    With trumpets and the sound of the horn
    sing joyfully before the King, the LORD.
    R. The Lord has revealed to the nations his saving power.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 5:1-12

    When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain,
    and after he had sat down, his disciples came to him.
    He began to teach them, saying:

    "Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.
    Blessed are they who mourn,
    for they will be comforted.
    Blessed are the meek,
    for they will inherit the land.
    Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    for they will be satisfied.
    Blessed are the merciful,
    for they will be shown mercy.
    Blessed are the clean of heart,
    for they will see God.
    Blessed are the peacemakers,
    for they will be called children of God.
    Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness,
    for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.
    Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you
    and utter every kind of evil against you falsely because of me.
    Rejoice and be glad,
    for your reward will be great in heaven.
    Thus they persecuted the prophets who were before you."

  • SATURDAY SEVENTH WEEK OF EASTER 2011:

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 28:16-20, 30-31

    When he entered Rome, Paul was allowed to live by himself,
    with the soldier who was guarding him.

    Three days later he called together the leaders of the Jews.
    When they had gathered he said to them, “My brothers,
    although I had done nothing against our people
    or our ancestral customs,
    I was handed over to the Romans as a prisoner from Jerusalem.
    After trying my case the Romans wanted to release me,
    because they found nothing against me deserving the death penalty.
    But when the Jews objected, I was obliged to appeal to Caesar,
    even though I had no accusation to make against my own nation.
    This is the reason, then, I have requested to see you
    and to speak with you, for it is on account of the hope of Israel
    that I wear these chains.”

    He remained for two full years in his lodgings.
    He received all who came to him, and with complete assurance
    and without hindrance he proclaimed the Kingdom of God
    and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 11:4, 5 and 7

    R. (see 7b) The just will gaze on your face, O Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    The LORD is in his holy temple;
    the LORD’s throne is in heaven.
    His eyes behold,
    his searching glance is on mankind.
    R. The just will gaze on your face, O Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    The LORD searches the just and the wicked;
    the lover of violence he hates.
    For the LORD is just, he loves just deeds;
    the upright shall see his face.
    R. The just will gaze on your face, O Lord.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 21:20-25

    Peter turned and saw the disciple following whom Jesus loved,
    the one who had also reclined upon his chest during the supper
    and had said, “Master, who is the one who will betray you?”
    When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, “Lord, what about him?”
    Jesus said to him, “What if I want him to remain until I come?
    What concern is it of yours?
    You follow me.”
    So the word spread among the brothers that that disciple would not die.
    But Jesus had not told him that he would not die,
    just “What if I want him to remain until I come?
    What concern is it of yours?”

    It is this disciple who testifies to these things
    and has written them, and we know that his testimony is true.
    There are also many other things that Jesus did,
    but if these were to be described individually,
    I do not think the whole world would contain the books
    that would be written.
