    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 18:9-18

    9And the Lord said to Paul one night in a vision, "Do not be afraid, but speak and do not be silent; 10for I am with you, and no man shall attack you to harm you; for I have many people in this city." 11And he stayed a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them. 12But when Gallio was proconsul of Acha'ia, the Jews made a united attack upon Paul and brought him before the tribunal, 13saying, "This man is persuading men to worship God contrary to the law." 14But when Paul was about to open his mouth, Gallio said to the Jews, "If it were a matter of wrongdoing or vicious crime, I should have reason to bear with you, O Jews; 15but since it is a matter of questions about words and names and your own law, see to it yourselves; I refuse to be a judge of these things." 16And he drove them from the tribunal. 17And they all seized Sos'thenes, the ruler of the synagogue, and beat him in front of the tribunal. But Gallio paid no attention to this. 18After this Paul stayed many days longer, and then took leave of the brethren and sailed for Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aq'uila. At Cen'chre-ae he cut his hair, for he had a vow.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 47:2-7

    1Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy! 2For the LORD, the Most High, is terrible, a great king over all the earth. 3He subdued peoples under us, and nations under our feet. 4He chose our heritage for us, the pride of Jacob whom he loves. [Selah] 5God has gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet. 6Sing praises to God, sing praises! Sing praises to our King, sing praises!

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    John 16:20-23

    20Truly, truly, I say to you, you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will turn into joy. 21When a woman is in travail she has sorrow, because her hour has come; but when she is delivered of the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a child is born into the world. 22So you have sorrow now, but I will see you again and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you. 23In that day you will ask nothing of me. Truly, truly, I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father, he will give it to you in my name.

  • WEDNESDAY SEVENTH WEEK OF EASTER 2013:

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 20:28-38

    At Miletus, Paul spoke to the presbyters of the Church of Ephesus:
    “Keep watch over yourselves and over the whole flock
    of which the Holy Spirit has appointed you overseers,
    in which you tend the Church of God
    that he acquired with his own Blood.
    I know that after my departure savage wolves will come among you,
    and they will not spare the flock.
    And from your own group, men will come forward perverting the truth
    to draw the disciples away after them.
    So be vigilant and remember that for three years, night and day,
    I unceasingly admonished each of you with tears.
    And now I commend you to God
    and to that gracious word of his that can build you up
    and give you the inheritance among all who are consecrated.
    I have never wanted anyone’s silver or gold or clothing.
    You know well that these very hands
    have served my needs and my companions.
    In every way I have shown you that by hard work of that sort
    we must help the weak,
    and keep in mind the words of the Lord Jesus who himself said,
    ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”

    When he had finished speaking
    he knelt down and prayed with them all.
    They were all weeping loudly
    as they threw their arms around Paul and kissed him,
    for they were deeply distressed that he had said
    that they would never see his face again.
    Then they escorted him to the ship.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    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.”
