    Acts 20:17-27

    17And from Mile'tus he sent to Ephesus and called to him the elders of the church. 18And when they came to him, he said to them: "You yourselves know how I lived among you all the time from the first day that I set foot in Asia, 19serving the Lord with all humility and with tears and with trials which befell me through the plots of the Jews;20how I did not shrink from declaring to you anything that was profitable, and teaching you in public and from house to house, 21testifying both to Jews and to Greeks of repentance to God and of faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. 22And now, behold, I am going to Jerusalem, bound in the Spirit, not knowing what shall befall me there;23except that the Holy Spirit testifies to me in every city that imprisonment and afflictions await me. 24But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may accomplish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. 25And now, behold, I know that all you among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom will see my face no more. 26Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all of you, 27for I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole counsel of God.


    Psalms 68:10-11, 20-21

    9Rain in abundance, O God, thou didst shed abroad;thou didst restore thy heritage as it languished;10thy flock found a dwelling in it;in thy goodness, O God, thou didst provide for the needy. 19Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears us up;God is our salvation. [Selah] 20Our God is a God of salvation;and to GOD, the Lord, belongs escape from death.


    John 17:1-11

    1When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven and said, "Father, the hour has come;glorify thy Son that the Son may glorify thee, 2since thou hast given him power over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom thou hast given him. 3And this is eternal life, that they know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent. 4I glorified thee on earth, having accomplished the work which thou gavest me to do;5and now, Father, glorify thou me in thy own presence with the glory which I had with thee before the world was made. 6"I have manifested thy name to the men whom thou gavest me out of the world;thine they were, and thou gavest them to me, and they have kept thy word. 7Now they know that everything that thou hast given me is from thee;8for I have given them the words which thou gavest me, and they have received them and know in truth that I came from thee;and they have believed that thou didst send me. 9I am praying for them;I am not praying for the world but for those whom thou hast given me, for they are thine;10all mine are thine, and thine are mine, and I am glorified in them. 11And now I am no more in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name, which thou hast given me, that they may be one, even as we are one.


    Easter Time.


    Acts 16:22-34

    The crowd in Philippi joined in the attack on Paul and Silas,
    and the magistrates had them stripped
    and ordered them to be beaten with rods.
    After inflicting many blows on them,
    they threw them into prison
    and instructed the jailer to guard them securely.
    When he received these instructions, he put them in the innermost cell
    and secured their feet to a stake.

    About midnight, while Paul and Silas were praying
    and singing hymns to God as the prisoners listened,
    there was suddenly such a severe earthquake
    that the foundations of the jail shook;
    all the doors flew open, and the chains of all were pulled loose.
    When the jailer woke up and saw the prison doors wide open,
    he drew his sword and was about to kill himself,
    thinking that the prisoners had escaped.
    But Paul shouted out in a loud voice,
    “Do no harm to yourself;we are all here.”
    He asked for a light and rushed in and,
    trembling with fear, he fell down before Paul and Silas.
    Then he brought them out and said,
    “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
    And they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus
    and you and your household will be saved.”
    So they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to everyone in his house.
    He took them in at that hour of the night and bathed their wounds;
    then he and all his family were baptized at once.
    He brought them up into his house and provided a meal
    and with his household rejoiced at having come to faith in God.


    PS 138:1-2ab, 2cde-3, 7c-8

    R. (7c) Your right hand saves me, O Lord.
    R. Alleluia.
    I will give thanks to you, O LORD, with all my heart,
    for you have heard the words of my mouth;
    in the presence of the angels I will sing your praise;
    I will worship at your holy temple,
    and give thanks to your name.
    R. Your right hand saves me, O Lord.
    R. Alleluia.
    Because of your kindness and your truth,
    you have made great above all things
    your name and your promise.
    When I called, you answered me;
    you built up strength within me.
    R. Your right hand saves me, O Lord.
    R. Alleluia.
    Your right hand saves me.
    The LORD will complete what he has done for me;
    your kindness, O LORD, endures forever;
    forsake not the work of your hands.
    R. Your right hand saves me, O Lord.
    R. Alleluia.


    Jn 16:5-11

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “Now I am going to the one who sent me,
    and not one of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’
    But because I told you this, grief has filled your hearts.
    But I tell you the truth, it is better for you that I go.
    For if I do not go, the Advocate will not come to you.
    But if I go, I will send him to you.
    And when he comes he will convict the world
    in regard to sin and righteousness and condemnation:
    sin, because they do not believe in me;
    righteousness, because I am going to the Father
    and you will no longer see me;
    condemnation, because the ruler of this world has been condemned.”
