    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.


    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.


    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."

    Acts 3:1-10

    Peter and John were going up to the temple area
    for the three o'clock hour of prayer.
    And a man crippled from birth was carried
    and placed at the gate of the temple called "the Beautiful Gate" every day
    to beg for alms from the people who entered the temple.
    When he saw Peter and John about to go into the temple,
    he asked for alms.
    But Peter looked intently at him, as did John,
    and said, "Look at us."
    He paid attention to them, expecting to receive something from them.
    Peter said, "I have neither silver nor gold,
    but what I do have I give you:
    in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazorean, rise and walk."
    Then Peter took him by the right hand and raised him up,
    and immediately his feet and ankles grew strong.
    He leaped up, stood, and walked around,
    and went into the temple with them,
    walking and jumping and praising God.
    When all the people saw him walking and praising God,
    they recognized him as the one
    who used to sit begging at the Beautiful Gate of the temple,
    and they were filled with amazement and astonishment
    at what had happened to him.

    R. Alleluia.

    rejoice, O hearts that seek the LORD!
    Look to the LORD in his strength;
    seek to serve him constantly.
    R. Rejoice, O hearts that seek the Lord.
    R. Alleluia.
    You descendants of Abraham, his servants,
    sons of Jacob, his chosen ones!
    He, the LORD, is our God;
    throughout the earth his judgments prevail.
    R. Rejoice, O hearts that seek the Lord.
    R. Alleluia.
    He remembers forever his covenant
    which he made binding for a thousand generationsB
    Which he entered into with Abraham
    and by his oath to Isaac.
    R. Rejoice, O hearts that seek the Lord.
    R. Alleluia.


    Lk 24:13-35

    That very day, the first day of the week,
    two of Jesus' disciples were going
    to a village seven miles from Jerusalem called Emmaus,
    and they were conversing about all the things that had occurred.
    And it happened that while they were conversing and debating,
    Jesus himself drew near and walked with them,
    but their eyes were prevented from recognizing him.
    He asked them,
    "What are you discussing as you walk along?"
    They stopped, looking downcast.
    One of them, named Cleopas, said to him in reply,
    "Are you the only visitor to Jerusalem
    who does not know of the things
    that have taken place there in these days?"
    And he replied to them, "What sort of things?"
    They said to him,
    "The things that happened to Jesus the Nazarene,
    who was a prophet mighty in deed and word
    before God and all the people,
    how our chief priests and rulers both handed him over
    to a sentence of death and crucified him.
    But we were hoping that he would be the one to redeem Israel;
    and besides all this,
    it is now the third day since this took place.
    Some women from our group, however, have astounded us:
    they were at the tomb early in the morning
    and did not find his Body;
    they came back and reported
    that they had indeed seen a vision of angels
    who announced that he was alive.
    Then some of those with us went to the tomb
    and found things just as the women had described,
    but him they did not see."
    And he said to them, "Oh, how foolish you are!
    How slow of heart to believe all that the prophets spoke!
    Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things
    and enter into his glory?"
    Then beginning with Moses and all the prophets,
    he interpreted to them what referred to him
    in all the Scriptures.
    As they approached the village to which they were going,
    he gave the impression that he was going on farther.
    But they urged him, "Stay with us,
    for it is nearly evening and the day is almost over."
    So he went in to stay with them.
    And it happened that, while he was with them at table,
    he took bread, said the blessing,
    broke it, and gave it to them.
    With that their eyes were opened and they recognized him,
    but he vanished from their sight.
    Then they said to each other,
    "Were not our hearts burning within us
    while he spoke to us on the way and opened the Scriptures to us?"
    So they set out at once and returned to Jerusalem
    where they found gathered together
    the Eleven and those with them who were saying,
    "The Lord has truly been raised and has appeared to Simon!"
    Then the two recounted what had taken place on the way
    and how he was made known to them in the breaking of the bread.
