The Roman Catholic Church, according to the General Roman Calendar, celebrates the following in Friday, 2021-06-11:

  • Saint Barnabas, the Apostle 2021:


    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.


    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.


    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."


    Ordinary Time.


    Hos 11:1, 3-4, 8c-9

    Thus says the LORD:
    When Israel was a child I loved him,
    out of Egypt I called my son.
    Yet it was I who taught Ephraim to walk,
    who took them in my arms;
    I drew them with human cords,
    with bands of love;
    I fostered them like one
    who raises an infant to his cheeks;
    Yet, though I stooped to feed my child,
    they did not know that I was their healer.
    My heart is overwhelmed,
    my pity is stirred.
    I will not give vent to my blazing anger,
    I will not destroy Ephraim again;
    For I am God and not a man,
    the Holy One present among you;
    I will not let the flames consume you.


    Is 12:2-3, 4, 5-6.

    R. (3)
    You will draw water joyfully from the springs of salvation.
    God indeed is my savior;
    I am confident and unafraid.
    My strength and my courage is the LORD,
    and he has been my savior.
    With joy you will draw water
    at the fountain of salvation.
    R.You will draw water joyfully from the springs of salvation.
    Give thanks to the LORD, acclaim his name;
    among the nations make known his deeds,
    proclaim how exalted is his name.
    R.You will draw water joyfully from the springs of salvation.
    Sing praise to the LORD for his glorious achievement;
    let this be known throughout all the earth.
    Shout with exultation, O city of Zion,
    for great in your midst
    is the Holy One of Israel!
    R.You will draw water joyfully from the springs of salvation.


    Eph 3:8-12, 14-19

    Brothers and sisters:
    To me, the very least of all the holy ones, this grace was given,
    to preach to the Gentiles the inscrutable riches of Christ,
    and to bring to light for all what is the plan of the mystery
    hidden from ages past in God who created all things,
    so that the manifold wisdom of God
    might now be made known through the church
    to the principalities and authorities in the heavens.
    This was according to the eternal purpose
    that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord,
    in whom we have boldness of speech
    and confidence of access through faith in him.
    For this reason I kneel before the Father,
    from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named,
    that he may grant you in accord with the riches of his glory
    to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inner self,
    and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith;
    that you, rooted and grounded in love,
    may have strength to comprehend with all the holy ones
    what is the breadth and length and height and depth,
    and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge,
    so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.


    Jn 19:31-37

    Since it was preparation day,
    in order that the bodies might not remain on the cross on the sabbath,
    for the sabbath day of that week was a solemn one,
    the Jews asked Pilate that their legs be broken
    and they be taken down.
    So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first
    and then of the other one who was crucified with Jesus.
    But when they came to Jesus and saw that he was already dead,
    they did not break his legs,
    but one soldier thrust his lance into his side,
    and immediately blood and water flowed out.
    An eyewitness has testified, and his testimony is true;
    he knows that he is speaking the truth,
    so that you also may come to believe.
    For this happened so that the Scripture passage might be fulfilled:
    Not a bone of it will be broken.
    And again another passage says:
    They will look upon him whom they have pierced.
