    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."


    Easter Time.


    Acts 6:8-15

    Stephen, filled with grace and power,
    was working great wonders and signs among the people.
    Certain members of the so-called Synagogue of Freedmen,
    Cyreneans, and Alexandrians,
    and people from Cilicia and Asia,
    came forward and debated with Stephen,
    but they could not withstand the wisdom and the Spirit with which he spoke.
    Then they instigated some men to say,
    "We have heard him speaking blasphemous words
    against Moses and God."
    They stirred up the people, the elders, and the scribes,
    accosted him, seized him,
    and brought him before the Sanhedrin.
    They presented false witnesses who testified,
    "This man never stops saying things against this holy place and the law.
    For we have heard him claim
    that this Jesus the Nazorean will destroy this place
    and change the customs that Moses handed down to us."
    All those who sat in the Sanhedrin looked intently at him
    and saw that his face was like the face of an angel.


    Ps 119:23-24, 26-27, 29-30

    R. (1ab) Blessed are they who follow the law of the Lord!
    R. Alleluia.
    Though princes meet and talk against me,
    your servant meditates on your statutes.
    Yes, your decrees are my delight;
    they are my counselors.
    R. Blessed are they who follow the law of the Lord!
    R. Alleluia.
    I declared my ways, and you answered me;
    teach me your statutes.
    Make me understand the way of your precepts,
    and I will meditate on your wondrous deeds.
    R. Blessed are they who follow the law of the Lord!
    R. Alleluia.
    Remove from me the way of falsehood,
    and favor me with your law.
    The way of truth I have chosen;
    I have set your ordinances before me.
    R. Blessed are they who follow the law of the Lord!
    R. Alleluia.


    Jn 6:22-29

    [After Jesus had fed the five thousand men, his disciples saw him walking on the sea.]
    The next day, the crowd that remained across the sea
    saw that there had been only one boat there,
    and that Jesus had not gone along with his disciples in the boat,
    but only his disciples had left.
    Other boats came from Tiberias
    near the place where they had eaten the bread
    when the Lord gave thanks.
    When the crowd saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there,
    they themselves got into boats
    and came to Capernaum looking for Jesus.
    And when they found him across the sea they said to him,
    "Rabbi, when did you get here?"
    Jesus answered them and said,
    "Amen, amen, I say to you, you are looking for me
    not because you saw signs
    but because you ate the loaves and were filled.
    Do not work for food that perishes
    but for the food that endures for eternal life,
    which the Son of Man will give you.
    For on him the Father, God, has set his seal."
    So they said to him,
    "What can we do to accomplish the works of God?"
    Jesus answered and said to them,
    "This is the work of God, that you believe in the one he sent."
