    Acts 25:13-21

    13Now when some days had passed, Agrippa the king and Berni'ce arrived at Caesare'a to welcome Festus. 14And as they stayed there many days, Festus laid Paul's case before the king, saying, "There is a man left prisoner by Felix;15and when I was at Jerusalem, the chief priests and the elders of the Jews gave information about him, asking for sentence against him. 16I answered them that it was not the custom of the Romans to give up any one before the accused met the accusers face to face, and had opportunity to make his defense concerning the charge laid against him. 17When therefore they came together here, I made no delay, but on the next day took my seat on the tribunal and ordered the man to be brought in. 18When the accusers stood up, they brought no charge in his case of such evils as I supposed;19but they had certain points of dispute with him about their own superstition and about one Jesus, who was dead, but whom Paul asserted to be alive. 20Being at a loss how to investigate these questions, I asked whether he wished to go to Jerusalem and be tried there regarding them. 21But when Paul had appealed to be kept in custody for the decision of the emperor, I commanded him to be held until I could send him to Caesar."


    Psalms 103:1-2, 11-12, 19-20

    1Bless the LORD, O my soul;and all that is within me, bless his holy name! 2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, 11For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;12as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us. 19The LORD has established his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules over all. 20Bless the LORD, O you his angels, you mighty ones who do his word, hearkening to the voice of his word!


    John 21:15-19

    15When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord;you know that I love you." He said to him, "Feed my lambs." 16A second time he said to him, "Simon, son of John, do you love me?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord;you know that I love you." He said to him, "Tend my sheep." 17He said to him the third time, "Simon, son of John, do you love me?" Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, "Do you love me?" And he said to him, "Lord, you know everything;you know that I love you." Jesus said to him, "Feed my sheep. 18Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were young, you girded yourself and walked where you would;but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will gird you and carry you where you do not wish to go." 19(This he said to show by what death he was to glorify God.) And after this he said to him, "Follow me."


    Easter Time.


    Acts 28:16-20, 30-31

    When he entered Rome, Paul was allowed to live by himself,
    with the soldier who was guarding him.

    Three days later he called together the leaders of the Jews.
    When they had gathered he said to them, “My brothers,
    although I had done nothing against our people
    or our ancestral customs,
    I was handed over to the Romans as a prisoner from Jerusalem.
    After trying my case the Romans wanted to release me,
    because they found nothing against me deserving the death penalty.
    But when the Jews objected, I was obliged to appeal to Caesar,
    even though I had no accusation to make against my own nation.
    This is the reason, then, I have requested to see you
    and to speak with you, for it is on account of the hope of Israel
    that I wear these chains.”

    He remained for two full years in his lodgings.
    He received all who came to him, and with complete assurance
    and without hindrance he proclaimed the Kingdom of God
    and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ.


    PS 11:4, 5 and 7

    R. (see 7b) The just will gaze on your face, O Lord.
    R. Alleluia.
    The LORD is in his holy temple;
    the LORD’s throne is in heaven.
    His eyes behold,
    his searching glance is on mankind.
    R. The just will gaze on your face, O Lord.
    R. Alleluia.
    The LORD searches the just and the wicked;
    the lover of violence he hates.
    For the LORD is just, he loves just deeds;
    the upright shall see his face.
    R. The just will gaze on your face, O Lord.
    R. Alleluia.


    Jn 21:20-25

    Peter turned and saw the disciple following whom Jesus loved,
    the one who had also reclined upon his chest during the supper
    and had said, “Master, who is the one who will betray you?”
    When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, “Lord, what about him?”
    Jesus said to him, “What if I want him to remain until I come?
    What concern is it of yours?
    You follow me.”
    So the word spread among the brothers that that disciple would not die.
    But Jesus had not told him that he would not die,
    just “What if I want him to remain until I come?
    What concern is it of yours?”

    It is this disciple who testifies to these things
    and has written them, and we know that his testimony is true.
    There are also many other things that Jesus did,
    but if these were to be described individually,
    I do not think the whole world would contain the books
    that would be written.
