    Acts 17:15, 22--18:1

    1715Those who conducted Paul brought him as far as Athens;and receiving a command for Silas and Timothy to come to him as soon as possible, they departed. 22So Paul, standing in the middle of the Are-op'agus, said: "Men of Athens, I perceive that in every way you are very religious. 23For as I passed along, and observed the objects of your worship, I found also an altar with this inscription, `To an unknown god.' What therefore you worship as unknown, this I proclaim to you. 24The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in shrines made by man, 25nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all men life and breath and everything. 26And he made from one every nation of men to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their habitation, 27that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel after him and find him. Yet he is not far from each one of us, 28for `In him we live and move and have our being';as even some of your poets have said, `For we are indeed his offspring.' 29Being then God's offspring, we ought not to think that the Deity is like gold, or silver, or stone, a representation by the art and imagination of man. 30The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all men everywhere to repent, 31because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed, and of this he has given assurance to all men by raising him from the dead." 32Now when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked;but others said, "We will hear you again about this." 33So Paul went out from among them. 34But some men joined him and believed, among them Dionys'ius the Are-op'agite and a woman named Dam'aris and others with them.181After this he left Athens and went to Corinth.


    Psalms 148:1-2, 11-14

    1Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD from the heavens, praise him in the heights! 2Praise him, all his angels, praise him, all his host! 11Kings of the earth and all peoples, princes and all rulers of the earth! 12Young men and maidens together, old men and children! 13Let them praise the name of the LORD, for his name alone is exalted;his glory is above earth and heaven. 14He has raised up a horn for his people, praise for all his saints, for the people of Israel who are near to him. Praise the LORD!


    John 16:12-15

    12"I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth;for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. 14He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. 15All that the Father has is mine;therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.


    Easter Time.


    Acts 1: 15-17. 20a. 20c-26

    Peter stood up in the midst of the brothers
    —there was a group of about one hundred and twenty persons
    in the one place —.
    He said, “My brothers,
    the Scripture had to be fulfilled
    which the Holy Spirit spoke beforehand
    through the mouth of David, concerning Judas,
    who was the guide for those who arrested Jesus.
    He was numbered among us
    and was allotted a share in this ministry.

    “For it is written in the Book of Psalms:
    May another take his office.

    “Therefore, it is necessary that one of the men
    who accompanied us the whole time
    the Lord Jesus came and went among us,
    beginning from the baptism of John
    until the day on which he was taken up from us,
    become with us a witness to his resurrection.”
    So they proposed two, Judas called Barsabbas,
    who was also known as Justus, and Matthias.
    Then they prayed,
    “You, Lord, who know the hearts of all,
    show which one of these two you have chosen
    to take the place in this apostolic ministry
    from which Judas turned away to go to his own place.”
    Then they gave lots to them, and the lot fell upon Matthias,
    and he was counted with the eleven apostles.


    Psalms 103:1-2, 11-12, 19-20

    R. (19a) The Lord has set his throne in heaven.
    R. Alleluia.
    Bless the LORD, O my soul;
    and all my being, bless his holy name.
    Bless the LORD, O my soul,
    and forget not all his benefits.
    R. The Lord has set his throne in heaven.
    R. Alleluia.
    For as the heavens are high above the earth,
    so surpassing is his kindness toward those who fear him.
    As far as the east is from the west,
    so far has he put our transgressions from us.
    R. The Lord has set his throne in heaven.
    R. Alleluia.
    The LORD has established his throne in heaven,
    and his kingdom rules over all.
    Bless the LORD, all you his angels,
    you mighty in strength, who do his bidding.
    R. The Lord has set his throne in heaven.
    R. Alleluia.


    1 John 4:11-16

    Beloved, if God so loved us,
    we also must love one another.
    No one has ever seen God.
    Yet, if we love one another, God remains in us,
    and his love is brought to perfection in us.

    This is how we know that we remain in him and he in us,
    that he has given us of his Spirit.
    Moreover, we have seen and testify
    that the Father sent his Son as savior of the world.
    Whoever acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God,
    God remains in him and he in God.
    We have come to know and to believe in the love God has for us.

    God is love, and whoever remains in love
    remains in God and God in him.

    Gospel Acclamation

    John 14:18

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.


    John 17:11b-19

    Lifting up his eyes to heaven, Jesus prayed saying:
    “Holy Father, keep them in your name that you have given me,
    so that they may be one just as we are one.
    When I was with them I protected them in your name that you gave me,
    and I guarded them, and none of them was lost
    except the son of destruction,
    in order that the Scripture might be fulfilled.
    But now I am coming to you.
    I speak this in the world
    so that they may share my joy completely.
    I gave them your word, and the world hated them,
    because they do not belong to the world
    any more than I belong to the world.
    I do not ask that you take them out of the world
    but that you keep them from the evil one.
    They do not belong to the world
    any more than I belong to the world.
    Consecrate them in the truth. Your word is truth.
    As you sent me into the world,
    so I sent them into the world.
    And I consecrate myself for them,
    so that they also may be consecrated in truth.”
