    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 16:11-15

    11Setting sail therefore from Tro'as, we made a direct voyage to Sam'othrace, and the following day to Ne-ap'olis, 12and from there to Philip'pi, which is the leading city of the district of Macedo'nia, and a Roman colony. We remained in this city some days; 13and on the sabbath day we went outside the gate to the riverside, where we supposed there was a place of prayer; and we sat down and spoke to the women who had come together. 14One who heard us was a woman named Lydia, from the city of Thyati'ra, a seller of purple goods, who was a worshiper of God. The Lord opened her heart to give heed to what was said by Paul. 15And when she was baptized, with her household, she besought us, saying, "If you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come to my house and stay." And she prevailed upon us.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 149:1-6, 9

    1Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise in the assembly of the faithful! 2Let Israel be glad in his Maker, let the sons of Zion rejoice in their King! 3Let them praise his name with dancing, making melody to him with timbrel and lyre! 4For the LORD takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with victory. 5Let the faithful exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their couches. 6Let the high praises of God be in their throats and two-edged swords in their hands, 9to execute on them the judgment written! This is glory for all his faithful ones. Praise the LORD!

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    John 15:26--16:4

    1526But when the Counselor comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness to me; 27and you also are witnesses, because you have been with me from the beginning.161"I have said all this to you to keep you from falling away. 2They will put you out of the synagogues; indeed, the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God. 3And they will do this because they have not known the Father, nor me. 4But I have said these things to you, that when their hour comes you may remember that I told you of them. "I did not say these things to you from the beginning, because I was with you.

  • SATURDAY SIXTH WEEK OF EASTER 2013:

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 18:23-28

    After staying in Antioch some time,
    Paul left and traveled in orderly sequence
    through the Galatian country and Phrygia,
    bringing strength to all the disciples.

    A Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria,
    an eloquent speaker, arrived in Ephesus.
    He was an authority on the Scriptures.
    He had been instructed in the Way of the Lord and,
    with ardent spirit, spoke and taught accurately about Jesus,
    although he knew only the baptism of John.
    He began to speak boldly in the synagogue;
    but when Priscilla and Aquila heard him,
    they took him aside
    and explained to him the Way of God more accurately.
    And when he wanted to cross to Achaia,
    the brothers encouraged him
    and wrote to the disciples there to welcome him.
    After his arrival he gave great assistance
    to those who had come to believe through grace.
    He vigorously refuted the Jews in public,
    establishing from the Scriptures that the Christ is Jesus.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 16:23b-28

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “Amen, amen, I say to you,
    whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you.
    Until now you have not asked anything in my name;
    ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete.

    “I have told you this in figures of speech.
    The hour is coming when I will no longer speak to you in figures
    but I will tell you clearly about the Father.
    On that day you will ask in my name,
    and I do not tell you that I will ask the Father for you.
    For the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me
    and have come to believe that I came from God.
    I came from the Father and have come into the world.
    Now I am leaving the world and going back to the Father.”
