    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Colossians 1: 24-29

    Brothers and sisters: I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I am filling up what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ on behalf of his Body, which is the Church, of which I am a minister in accordance with God's stewardship given to me to bring to completion for you the word of God, the mystery hidden from ages and from generations past. But now it has been manifested to his holy ones, to whom God chose to make known the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; it is Christ in you, the hope for glory. It is him whom we proclaim, admonishing everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone perfect in Christ. For this I labor and struggle, in accord with the exercise of his power working within me.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalm 33, 2-3. 4-5. 6-7. 8-9

    R. The Lord delivered me from all my fears.
    I will bless the LORD at all times;
    praise shall be always in my mouth.
    My soul will glory in the LORD
    that the poor may hear and be glad.
    R. The Lord delivered me from all my fears.
    Magnify the LORD with me;
    let us exalt his name together.
    I sought the LORD, who answered me,
    delivered me from all my fears.
    R. The Lord delivered me from all my fears.
    Look to God that you may be radiant with joy
    and your faces may not blush for shame.
    In my misfortune I called,
    the LORD heard and saved me from all distress.
    R. The Lord delivered me from all my fears.
    The angel of the LORD, who encamps with them,
    delivers all who fear God.
    Learn to savor how good the LORD is;
    happy are those who take refuge in him.
    R. The Lord delivered me from all my fears.
    Fear the LORD, you holy ones;
    nothing is lacking to those who fear him.
    The powerful grow poor and hungry,
    but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.
    R. The Lord delivered me from all my fears.

    Gospel Acclamation

    Alleluia Jn 13:34

    I give you a new commandment: love one another as I have loved you.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    John 17:20-26

    Jesus raised his eyes to heaven and said: "Holy Father, I pray not only for these, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, so that they may all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I in you, that they also may be in us, that the world may believe that you sent me. And I have given them the glory you gave me, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may be brought to perfection as one, that the world may know that you sent me, and that you loved them even as you loved me. Father, they are your gift to me. I wish that where I am they also may be with me, that they may see my glory that you gave me, because you loved me before the foundation of the world. Righteous Father, the world also does not know you, but I know you, and they know that you sent me. I made known to them your name and I will make it known, that the love with which you loved me may be in them and I in them."

  • WEDNESDAY FOURTH WEEK OF EASTER 2013:

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 12:24?13:5a

    The word of God continued to spread and grow.

    After Barnabas and Saul completed their relief mission,
    they returned to Jerusalem,
    taking with them John, who is called Mark.

    Now there were in the Church at Antioch prophets and teachers:
    Barnabas, Symeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene,
    Manaen who was a close friend of Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.
    While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said,
    "Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul
    for the work to which I have called them."
    Then, completing their fasting and prayer,
    they laid hands on them and sent them off.

    So they, sent forth by the Holy Spirit,
    went down to Seleucia
    and from there sailed to Cyprus.
    When they arrived in Salamis,
    they proclaimed the word of God in the Jewish synagogues.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 67:2-3, 5, 6 and 8

    R. (4) O God, let all the nations praise you!
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    May God have pity on us and bless us;
    may he let his face shine upon us.
    So may your way be known upon earth;
    among all nations, your salvation.
    R. O God, let all the nations praise you!
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    May the nations be glad and exult
    because you rule the peoples in equity;
    the nations on the earth you guide.
    R. O God, let all the nations praise you!
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    May the peoples praise you, O God;
    may all the peoples praise you!
    May God bless us,
    and may all the ends of the earth fear him!
    R. O God, let all the nations praise you!
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 12:44-50

    Jesus cried out and said,
    "Whoever believes in me believes not only in me
    but also in the one who sent me,
    and whoever sees me sees the one who sent me.
    I came into the world as light,
    so that everyone who believes in me might not remain in darkness.
    And if anyone hears my words and does not observe them,
    I do not condemn him,
    for I did not come to condemn the world but to save the world.
    Whoever rejects me and does not accept my words
    has something to judge him: the word that I spoke,
    it will condemn him on the last day,
    because I did not speak on my own,
    but the Father who sent me commanded me what to say and speak.
    And I know that his commandment is eternal life.
    So what I say, I say as the Father told me."
