    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Philippians 4:4-9

    4Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. 5Let all men know your forbearance. The Lord is at hand. 6Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. 9What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, do; and the God of peace will be with you.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 34:2-11

    1I will bless the LORD at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. 2My soul makes its boast in the LORD; let the afflicted hear and be glad. 3O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together! 4I sought the LORD, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears. 5Look to him, and be radiant; so your faces shall never be ashamed. 6This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. 7The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them. 8O taste and see that the LORD is good! Happy is the man who takes refuge in him! 9O fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him have no want! 10The young lions suffer want and hunger; but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    John 17:20-26

    20"I do not pray for these only, but also for those who believe in me through their word, 21that they may all be one; even as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22The glory which thou hast given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, 23I in them and thou in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that thou hast sent me and hast loved them even as thou hast loved me. 24Father, I desire that they also, whom thou hast given me, may be with me where I am, to behold my glory which thou hast given me in thy love for me before the foundation of the world. 25O righteous Father, the world has not known thee, but I have known thee; and these know that thou hast sent me. 26I made known to them thy name, and I will make it known, that the love with which thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them."

  • THURSDAY FIFTH WEEK OF EASTER 2011:

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 15:7-21

    After much debate had taken place,
    Peter got up and said to the Apostles and the presbyters,
    “My brothers, you are well aware that from early days
    God made his choice among you that through my mouth
    the Gentiles would hear the word of the Gospel and believe.
    And God, who knows the heart,
    bore witness by granting them the Holy Spirit
    just as he did us.
    He made no distinction between us and them,
    for by faith he purified their hearts.
    Why, then, are you now putting God to the test
    by placing on the shoulders of the disciples
    a yoke that neither our ancestors nor we have been able to bear?
    On the contrary, we believe that we are saved
    through the grace of the Lord Jesus, in the same way as they.”
    The whole assembly fell silent,
    and they listened
    while Paul and Barnabas described the signs and wonders
    God had worked among the Gentiles through them.

    After they had fallen silent, James responded,
    “My brothers, listen to me.
    Symeon has described how God first concerned himself
    with acquiring from among the Gentiles a people for his name.
    The words of the prophets agree with this, as is written:

    After this I shall return
    and rebuild the fallen hut of David;
    from its ruins I shall rebuild it
    and raise it up again,
    so that the rest of humanity may seek out the Lord,
    even all the Gentiles on whom my name is invoked.
    Thus says the Lord who accomplishes these things,
    known from of old.


    It is my judgment, therefore,
    that we ought to stop troubling the Gentiles who turn to God,
    but tell them by letter to avoid pollution from idols,
    unlawful marriage, the meat of strangled animals, and blood.
    For Moses, for generations now,
    has had those who proclaim him in every town,
    as he has been read in the synagogues every sabbath.”

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 96:1-2a, 2b-3, 10

    R. (3) Proclaim God’s marvelous deeds to all the nations.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Sing to the LORD a new song;
    sing to the LORD, all you lands.
    Sing to the LORD; bless his name.
    R. Proclaim God’s marvelous deeds to all the nations.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Announce his salvation, day after day.
    Tell his glory among the nations;
    among all peoples, his wondrous deeds.
    R. Proclaim God’s marvelous deeds to all the nations.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Say among the nations: The LORD is king.
    He has made the world firm, not to be moved;
    he governs the peoples with equity.
    R. Proclaim God’s marvelous deeds to all the nations.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 15:9-11

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “As the Father loves me, so I also love you.
    Remain in my love.
    If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love,
    just as I have kept my Father’s commandments
    and remain in his love.

    “I have told you this so that
    my joy might be in you and
    your joy might be complete.”
