    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.


    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.


    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.


    Easter Time.


    Acts 17:15, 22—18:1

    After Paul’s escorts had taken him to Athens,
    they came away with instructions for Silas and Timothy
    to join him as soon as possible.

    Then Paul stood up at the Areopagus and said:
    “You Athenians, I see that in every respect
    you are very religious.
    For as I walked around looking carefully at your shrines,
    I even discovered an altar inscribed, ‘To an Unknown God.’
    What therefore you unknowingly worship, I proclaim to you.
    The God who made the world and all that is in it,
    the Lord of heaven and earth,
    does not dwell in sanctuaries made by human hands,
    nor is he served by human hands because he needs anything.
    Rather it is he who gives to everyone life and breath and everything.
    He made from one the whole human race
    to dwell on the entire surface of the earth,
    and he fixed the ordered seasons and the boundaries of their regions,
    so that people might seek God,
    even perhaps grope for him and find him,
    though indeed he is not far from any one of us.
    For ‘In him we live and move and have our being,’
    as even some of your poets have said,
    ‘For we too are his offspring.’
    Since therefore we are the offspring of God,
    we ought not to think that the divinity is like an image
    fashioned from gold, silver, or stone by human art and imagination.
    God has overlooked the times of ignorance,
    but now he demands that all people everywhere repent
    because he has established a day on which he will ‘judge the world
    with justice’ through a man he has appointed,
    and he has provided confirmation for all
    by raising him from the dead.”

    When they heard about resurrection of the dead,
    some began to scoff, but others said,
    “We should like to hear you on this some other time.”
    And so Paul left them.
    But some did join him, and became believers.
    Among them were Dionysius,
    a member of the Court of the Areopagus,
    a woman named Damaris, and others with them.

    After this he left Athens and went to Corinth.


    PS 148:1-2, 11-12, 13, 14

    R. Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
    R. Alleluia.
    Praise the LORD from the heavens;
    praise him in the heights.
    Praise him, all you his angels;
    praise him, all you his hosts.
    R. Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
    R. Alleluia.
    Let the kings of the earth and all peoples,
    the princes and all the judges of the earth,
    Young men too, and maidens,
    old men and boys.
    R. Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
    R. Alleluia.
    Praise the name of the LORD,
    for his name alone is exalted;
    His majesty is above earth and heaven.
    R. Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
    R. Alleluia.
    He has lifted up the horn of his people;
    Be this his praise from all his faithful ones,
    from the children of Israel, the people close to him.
    R. Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
    R. Alleluia.


    Jn 16:12-15

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now.
    But when he comes, the Spirit of truth,
    he will guide you to all truth.
    He will not speak on his own,
    but he will speak what he hears,
    and will declare to you the things that are coming.
    He will glorify me,
    because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you.
    Everything that the Father has is mine;
    for this reason I told you that he will take from what is mine
    and declare it to you.”
