    Acts 18:23-28

    23After spending some time there he departed and went from place to place through the region of Galatia and Phryg'ia, strengthening all the disciples. 24Now a Jew named Apol'los, a native of Alexandria, came to Ephesus. He was an eloquent man, well versed in the scriptures. 25He had been instructed in the way of the Lord;and being fervent in spirit, he spoke and taught accurately the things concerning Jesus, though he knew only the baptism of John. 26He began to speak boldly in the synagogue;but when Priscilla and Aq'uila heard him, they took him and expounded to him the way of God more accurately. 27And when he wished to cross to Acha'ia, the brethren encouraged him, and wrote to the disciples to receive him. When he arrived, he greatly helped those who through grace had believed, 28for he powerfully confuted the Jews in public, showing by the scriptures that the Christ was Jesus.


    Psalms 47:2-3, 8-10

    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. 7For God is the king of all the earth;sing praises with a psalm! 8God reigns over the nations;God sits on his holy throne. 9The princes of the peoples gather as the people of the God of Abraham. For the shields of the earth belong to God;he is highly exalted!


    John 16:23-28

    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. 24Hitherto you have asked nothing in my name;ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full. 25"I have said this to you in figures;the hour is coming when I shall no longer speak to you in figures but tell you plainly of the Father. 26In that day you will ask in my name;and I do not say to you that I shall pray the Father for you;27for the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me and have believed that I came from the Father. 28I came from the Father and have come into the world;again, I am leaving the world and going to the Father."


    Easter Time.


    Acts 13:26-33

    When Paul came to Antioch in Pisidia, he said in the synagogue:
    “My brothers, children of the family of Abraham,
    and those others among you who are God-fearing,
    to us this word of salvation has been sent.
    The inhabitants of Jerusalem and their leaders failed to recognize him,
    and by condemning him they fulfilled the oracles of the prophets
    that are read sabbath after sabbath.
    For even though they found no grounds for a death sentence,
    they asked Pilate to have him put to death,
    and when they had accomplished all that was written about him,
    they took him down from the tree and placed him in a tomb.
    But God raised him from the dead,
    and for many days he appeared to those
    who had come up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem.
    These are now his witnesses before the people.
    We ourselves are proclaiming this good news to you
    that what God promised our fathers
    he has brought to fulfillment for us, their children, by raising up Jesus,
    as it is written in the second psalm,
    You are my Son;this day I have begotten you.”


    PS 2:6-7, 8-9, 10-11ab

    R. (7bc) You are my Son;this day I have begotten you.
    R. Alleluia.
    “I myself have set up my king
    on Zion, my holy mountain.”
    I will proclaim the decree of the LORD:
    The LORD said to me, “You are my Son;
    this day I have begotten you.”
    R. You are my Son;this day I have begotten you.
    R. Alleluia.
    “Ask of me and I will give you
    the nations for an inheritance
    and the ends of the earth for your possession.
    You shall rule them with an iron rod;
    you shall shatter them like an earthen dish.”
    R. You are my Son;this day I have begotten you.
    R. Alleluia.
    And now, O kings, give heed;
    take warning, you rulers of the earth.
    Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice before him;
    with trembling rejoice.
    R. You are my Son;this day I have begotten you.
    R. Alleluia.


    Jn 14:1-6

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “Do not let your hearts be troubled.
    You have faith in God;have faith also in me.
    In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places.
    If there were not,
    would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?
    And if I go and prepare a place for you,
    I will come back again and take you to myself,
    so that where I am you also may be.
    Where I am going you know the way.”
    Thomas said to him,
    “Master, we do not know where you are going;
    how can we know the way?”
    Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth and the life.
    No one comes to the Father except through me.”
