  • Saint Athanasius, Bishop, Doctor of the Church 2023:


    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?


    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.


    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.


    Acts 11:19-26

    Those who had been scattered by the persecution
    that arose because of Stephen
    went as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus, and Antioch,
    preaching the word to no one but Jews.
    There were some Cypriots and Cyrenians among them, however,
    who came to Antioch and began to speak to the Greeks as well,
    proclaiming the Lord Jesus.
    The hand of the Lord was with them
    and a great number who believed turned to the Lord.
    The news about them reached the ears of the Church in Jerusalem,
    and they sent Barnabas to go to Antioch.
    When he arrived and saw the grace of God,
    he rejoiced and encouraged them all
    to remain faithful to the Lord in firmness of heart,
    for he was a good man, filled with the Holy Spirit and faith.
    And a large number of people was added to the Lord.
    Then he went to Tarsus to look for Saul,
    and when he had found him he brought him to Antioch.
    For a whole year they met with the Church
    and taught a large number of people,
    and it was in Antioch that the disciples
    were first called Christians.


    Ps 87:1b-3, 4-5, 6-7

    R. (117:1a) All you nations, praise the Lord.
    R. Alleluia.
    His foundation upon the holy mountains
    the LORD loves:
    The gates of Zion,
    more than any dwelling of Jacob.
    Glorious things are said of you,
    O city of God!
    R. All you nations, praise the Lord.
    R. Alleluia.
    I tell of Egypt and Babylon
    among those who know the LORD;
    Of Philistia, Tyre, Ethiopia:
    "This man was born there."
    And of Zion they shall say:
    "One and all were born in her;
    And he who has established her
    is the Most High LORD."
    R. All you nations, praise the Lord.
    R. Alleluia.
    They shall note, when the peoples are enrolled:
    "This man was born there."
    And all shall sing, in their festive dance:
    "My home is within you."
    R. All you nations, praise the Lord.
    R. Alleluia.


    Jn 10:22-30

    The feast of the Dedication was taking place in Jerusalem.
    It was winter.
    And Jesus walked about in the temple area on the Portico of Solomon.
    So the Jews gathered around him and said to him,
    "How long are you going to keep us in suspense?
    If you are the Christ, tell us plainly."
    Jesus answered them, "I told you and you do not believe.
    The works I do in my Father's name testify to me.
    But you do not believe, because you are not among my sheep.
    My sheep hear my voice;
    I know them, and they follow me.
    I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish.
    No one can take them out of my hand.
    My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all,
    and no one can take them out of the Father's hand.
    The Father and I are one."
