    Acts 4:8-12

    8Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, "Rulers of the people and elders, 9if we are being examined today concerning a good deed done to a cripple, by what means this man has been healed, 10be it known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by him this man is standing before you well. 11This is the stone which was rejected by you builders, but which has become the head of the corner. 12And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."


    Psalms 40:2, 4, 7-11

    1I waited patiently for the LORD;he inclined to me and heard my cry. 3He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the LORD. 6Sacrifice and offering thou dost not desire;but thou hast given me an open ear. Burnt offering and sin offering thou hast not required. 7Then I said, "Lo, I come;in the roll of the book it is written of me;8I delight to do thy will, O my God;thy law is within my heart." 9I have told the glad news of deliverance in the great congregation;lo, I have not restrained my lips, as thou knowest, O LORD. 10I have not hid thy saving help within my heart, I have spoken of thy faithfulness and thy salvation;I have not concealed thy steadfast love and thy faithfulness from the great congregation.


    John 17:11-19

    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. 12While I was with them, I kept them in thy name, which thou hast given me;I have guarded them, and none of them is lost but the son of perdition, that the scripture might be fulfilled. 13But now I am coming to thee;and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14I have given them thy word;and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15I do not pray that thou shouldst take them out of the world, but that thou shouldst keep them from the evil one. 16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17Sanctify them in the truth;thy word is truth. 18As thou didst send me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. 19And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be consecrated in truth.


    Luke 9:57-62

    57As they were going along the road, a man said to him, "I will follow you wherever you go." 58And Jesus said to him, "Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests;but the Son of man has nowhere to lay his head." 59To another he said, "Follow me." But he said, "Lord, let me first go and bury my father." 60But he said to him, "Leave the dead to bury their own dead;but as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God." 61Another said, "I will follow you, Lord;but let me first say farewell to those at my home." 62Jesus said to him, "No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God."


    Easter Time.


    Acts 17:15, 22—18:1

    After Paul’s escorts had taken him to Athens,
    they came away with instructions for Silas and Timothy
    to join him as soon as possible.

    Then Paul stood up at the Areopagus and said:
    “You Athenians, I see that in every respect
    you are very religious.
    For as I walked around looking carefully at your shrines,
    I even discovered an altar inscribed, ‘To an Unknown God.’
    What therefore you unknowingly worship, I proclaim to you.
    The God who made the world and all that is in it,
    the Lord of heaven and earth,
    does not dwell in sanctuaries made by human hands,
    nor is he served by human hands because he needs anything.
    Rather it is he who gives to everyone life and breath and everything.
    He made from one the whole human race
    to dwell on the entire surface of the earth,
    and he fixed the ordered seasons and the boundaries of their regions,
    so that people might seek God,
    even perhaps grope for him and find him,
    though indeed he is not far from any one of us.
    For ‘In him we live and move and have our being,’
    as even some of your poets have said,
    ‘For we too are his offspring.’
    Since therefore we are the offspring of God,
    we ought not to think that the divinity is like an image
    fashioned from gold, silver, or stone by human art and imagination.
    God has overlooked the times of ignorance,
    but now he demands that all people everywhere repent
    because he has established a day on which he will ‘judge the world
    with justice’ through a man he has appointed,
    and he has provided confirmation for all
    by raising him from the dead.”

    When they heard about resurrection of the dead,
    some began to scoff, but others said,
    “We should like to hear you on this some other time.”
    And so Paul left them.
    But some did join him, and became believers.
    Among them were Dionysius,
    a member of the Court of the Areopagus,
    a woman named Damaris, and others with them.

    After this he left Athens and went to Corinth.


    PS 148:1-2, 11-12, 13, 14

    R. Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
    R. Alleluia.
    Praise the LORD from the heavens;
    praise him in the heights.
    Praise him, all you his angels;
    praise him, all you his hosts.
    R. Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
    R. Alleluia.
    Let the kings of the earth and all peoples,
    the princes and all the judges of the earth,
    Young men too, and maidens,
    old men and boys.
    R. Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
    R. Alleluia.
    Praise the name of the LORD,
    for his name alone is exalted;
    His majesty is above earth and heaven.
    R. Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
    R. Alleluia.
    He has lifted up the horn of his people;
    Be this his praise from all his faithful ones,
    from the children of Israel, the people close to him.
    R. Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
    R. Alleluia.


    Jn 16:12-15

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now.
    But when he comes, the Spirit of truth,
    he will guide you to all truth.
    He will not speak on his own,
    but he will speak what he hears,
    and will declare to you the things that are coming.
    He will glorify me,
    because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you.
    Everything that the Father has is mine;
    for this reason I told you that he will take from what is mine
    and declare it to you.”
