    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 John 5:1-5

    1Every one who believes that Jesus is the Christ is a child of God, and every one who loves the parent loves the child. 2By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments. 3For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome. 4For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith. 5Who is it that overcomes the world but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 37:3-6, 30-31

    3Trust in the LORD, and do good; so you will dwell in the land, and enjoy security. 4Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. 5Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will act. 6He will bring forth your vindication as the light, and your right as the noonday. 30The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks justice. 31The law of his God is in his heart; his steps do not slip.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 10:22-25

    22and you will be hated by all for my name's sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved. 23When they persecute you in one town, flee to the next; for truly, I say to you, you will not have gone through all the towns of Israel, before the Son of man comes. 24"A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master; 25it is enough for the disciple to be like his teacher, and the servant like his master. If they have called the master of the house Be-el'zebul, how much more will they malign those of his household.

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 15:7-21

    After much debate had taken place,
    Peter got up and said to the Apostles and the presbyters,
    “My brothers, you are well aware that from early days
    God made his choice among you that through my mouth
    the Gentiles would hear the word of the Gospel and believe.
    And God, who knows the heart,
    bore witness by granting them the Holy Spirit
    just as he did us.
    He made no distinction between us and them,
    for by faith he purified their hearts.
    Why, then, are you now putting God to the test
    by placing on the shoulders of the disciples
    a yoke that neither our ancestors nor we have been able to bear?
    On the contrary, we believe that we are saved
    through the grace of the Lord Jesus, in the same way as they.”
    The whole assembly fell silent,
    and they listened
    while Paul and Barnabas described the signs and wonders
    God had worked among the Gentiles through them.

    After they had fallen silent, James responded,
    “My brothers, listen to me.
    Symeon has described how God first concerned himself
    with acquiring from among the Gentiles a people for his name.
    The words of the prophets agree with this, as is written:

    After this I shall return
    and rebuild the fallen hut of David;
    from its ruins I shall rebuild it
    and raise it up again,
    so that the rest of humanity may seek out the Lord,
    even all the Gentiles on whom my name is invoked.
    Thus says the Lord who accomplishes these things,
    known from of old.


    It is my judgment, therefore,
    that we ought to stop troubling the Gentiles who turn to God,
    but tell them by letter to avoid pollution from idols,
    unlawful marriage, the meat of strangled animals, and blood.
    For Moses, for generations now,
    has had those who proclaim him in every town,
    as he has been read in the synagogues every sabbath.”

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 96:1-2a, 2b-3, 10

    R. (3) Proclaim God’s marvelous deeds to all the nations.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Sing to the LORD a new song;
    sing to the LORD, all you lands.
    Sing to the LORD; bless his name.
    R. Proclaim God’s marvelous deeds to all the nations.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Announce his salvation, day after day.
    Tell his glory among the nations;
    among all peoples, his wondrous deeds.
    R. Proclaim God’s marvelous deeds to all the nations.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Say among the nations: The LORD is king.
    He has made the world firm, not to be moved;
    he governs the peoples with equity.
    R. Proclaim God’s marvelous deeds to all the nations.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 15:9-11

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “As the Father loves me, so I also love you.
    Remain in my love.
    If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love,
    just as I have kept my Father’s commandments
    and remain in his love.

    “I have told you this so that
    my joy might be in you and
    your joy might be complete.”
