    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 11:19-26

    19Now those who were scattered because of the persecution that arose over Stephen traveled as far as Phoeni'cia and Cyprus and Antioch, speaking the word to none except Jews. 20But there were some of them, men of Cyprus and Cyre'ne, who on coming to Antioch spoke to the Greeks also, preaching the Lord Jesus. 21And the hand of the Lord was with them, and a great number that believed turned to the Lord. 22News of this came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas to Antioch. 23When he came and saw the grace of God, he was glad; and he exhorted them all to remain faithful to the Lord with steadfast purpose; 24for he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a large company was added to the Lord. 25So Barnabas went to Tarsus to look for Saul; 26and when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. For a whole year they met with the church, and taught a large company of people; and in Antioch the disciples were for the first time called Christians.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 87:1-7

    1On the holy mount stands the city he founded; 2the LORD loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwelling places of Jacob. 3Glorious things are spoken of you, O city of God. [Selah] 4Among those who know me I mention Rahab and Babylon; behold, Philistia and Tyre, with Ethiopia -- "This one was born there," they say. 5And of Zion it shall be said, "This one and that one were born in her"; for the Most High himself will establish her. 6The LORD records as he registers the peoples, "This one was born there." [Selah] 7Singers and dancers alike say, "All my springs are in you."

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    John 10:22-30

    22It was the feast of the Dedication at Jerusalem; 23it was winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the portico of Solomon. 24So the Jews gathered round him and said to him, "How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly." 25Jesus answered them, "I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness to me; 26but you do not believe, because you do not belong to my sheep. 27My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me; 28and I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand. 29My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand. 30I and the Father are one."

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 14:21-27

    After Paul and Barnabas had proclaimed the good news
    to that city
    and made a considerable number of disciples,
    they returned to Lystra and to Iconium and to Antioch.
    They strengthened the spirits of the disciples
    and exhorted them to persevere in the faith, saying,
    "It is necessary for us to undergo many hardships
    to enter the kingdom of God."
    They appointed elders for them in each church and,
    with prayer and fasting, commended them to the Lord
    in whom they had put their faith.
    Then they traveled through Pisidia and reached Pamphylia.
    After proclaiming the word at Perga they went down to Attalia.
    From there they sailed to Antioch,
    where they had been commended to the grace of God
    for the work they had now accomplished.
    And when they arrived, they called the church together
    and reported what God had done with them
    and how he had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 145:8-9, 10-11, 12-13

    R. (cf. 1)
    I will praise your name for ever, my king and my God.
    or:
    R.Alleluia.
    The LORD is gracious and merciful,
    slow to anger and of great kindness.
    The LORD is good to all
    and compassionate toward all his works.
    R.I will praise your name for ever, my king and my God.
    or:
    R.Alleluia.
    Let all your works give you thanks, O LORD,
    and let your faithful ones bless you.
    Let them discourse of the glory of your kingdom
    and speak of your might.
    R.I will praise your name for ever, my king and my God.
    or:
    R.Alleluia.
    Let them make known your might to the children of Adam,
    and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.
    Your kingdom is a kingdom for all ages,
    and your dominion endures through all generations.
    R.I will praise your name for ever, my king and my God.
    or:
    R.Alleluia.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Rev 21:1-5a

    Then I, John, saw a new heaven and a new earth.
    The former heaven and the former earth had passed away,
    and the sea was no more.
    I also saw the holy city, a new Jerusalem,
    coming down out of heaven from God,
    prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
    I heard a loud voice from the throne saying,
    "Behold, God’s dwelling is with the human race.
    He will dwell with them and they will be his people
    and God himself will always be with them as their God.
    He will wipe every tear from their eyes,
    and there shall be no more death or mourning, wailing or pain,
    for the old order has passed away."
    The One who sat on the throne said,
    "Behold, I make all things new."

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 13:31-33a, 34-35

    When Judas had left them, Jesus said,
    "Now is the Son of Man glorified, and God is glorified in him.
    If God is glorified in him,
    God will also glorify him in himself,
    and God will glorify him at once.
    My children, I will be with you only a little while longer.
    I give you a new commandment: love one another.
    As I have loved you, so you also should love one another.
    This is how all will know that you are my disciples,
    if you have love for one another."
