    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 16:22-34

    22The crowd joined in attacking them; and the magistrates tore the garments off them and gave orders to beat them with rods. 23And when they had inflicted many blows upon them, they threw them into prison, charging the jailer to keep them safely. 24Having received this charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks. 25But about midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them, 26and suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and every one's fetters were unfastened. 27When the jailer woke and saw that the prison doors were open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself, supposing that the prisoners had escaped. 28But Paul cried with a loud voice, "Do not harm yourself, for we are all here." 29And he called for lights and rushed in, and trembling with fear he fell down before Paul and Silas, 30and brought them out and said, "Men, what must I do to be saved?" 31And they said, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household." 32And they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all that were in his house. 33And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their wounds, and he was baptized at once, with all his family. 34Then he brought them up into his house, and set food before them; and he rejoiced with all his household that he had believed in God.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 138:1-3, 7-8

    1I give thee thanks, O LORD, with my whole heart; before the gods I sing thy praise; 2I bow down toward thy holy temple and give thanks to thy name for thy steadfast love and thy faithfulness; for thou hast exalted above everything thy name and thy word. 3On the day I called, thou didst answer me, my strength of soul thou didst increase. 7Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou dost preserve my life; thou dost stretch out thy hand against the wrath of my enemies, and thy right hand delivers me. 8The LORD will fulfil his purpose for me; thy steadfast love, O LORD, endures for ever. Do not forsake the work of thy hands.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    John 16:5-11

    5But now I am going to him who sent me; yet none of you asks me, `Where are you going?' 6But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your hearts. 7Nevertheless I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. 8And when he comes, he will convince the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: 9concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; 10concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no more; 11concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 7:55-60

    Stephen, filled with the Holy Spirit,
    looked up intently to heaven and saw the glory of God
    and Jesus standing at the right hand of God,
    and Stephen said, "Behold, I see the heavens opened
    and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God."
    But they cried out in a loud voice,
    covered their ears, and rushed upon him together.
    They threw him out of the city, and began to stone him.
    The witnesses laid down their cloaks
    at the feet of a young man named Saul.
    As they were stoning Stephen, he called out,
    "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit."
    Then he fell to his knees and cried out in a loud voice,
    "Lord, do not hold this sin against them;"
    and when he said this, he fell asleep.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Rev 22:12-14, 16-17, 20

    I, John, heard a voice saying to me:
    "Behold, I am coming soon.
    I bring with me the recompense I will give to each
    according to his deeds.
    I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last,
    the beginning and the end."
    Blessed are they who wash their robes
    so as to have the right to the tree of life
    and enter the city through its gates.
    "I, Jesus, sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches.
    I am the root and offspring of David,
    the bright morning star."
    The Spirit and the bride say, "Come."
    Let the hearer say, "Come."
    Let the one who thirsts come forward,
    and the one who wants it receive the gift of life-giving water.
    The one who gives this testimony says, "Yes, I am coming soon."
    Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 17:20-26

    Lifting up his eyes to heaven, Jesus prayed saying:
    "Holy Father, I pray not only for them,
    but also for those who will believe in me through their word,
    so that they may all be one,
    as you, Father, are in me and I in you,
    that they also may be in us,
    that the world may believe that you sent me.
    And I have given them the glory you gave me,
    so that they may be one, as we are one,
    I in them and you in me,
    that they may be brought to perfection as one,
    that the world may know that you sent me,
    and that you loved them even as you loved me.
    Father, they are your gift to me.
    I wish that where I am they also may be with me,
    that they may see my glory that you gave me,
    because you loved me before the foundation of the world.
    Righteous Father, the world also does not know you,
    but I know you, and they know that you sent me.
    I made known to them your name and I will make it known,
    that the love with which you loved me
    may be in them and I in them."
