    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.


    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."


    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.


    Acts 7:51-8:1a

    Stephen said to the people, the elders, and the scribes:
    "You stiff-necked people, uncircumcised in heart and ears,
    you always oppose the Holy Spirit;
    you are just like your ancestors.
    Which of the prophets did your ancestors not persecute?
    They put to death those who foretold the coming of the righteous one,
    whose betrayers and murderers you have now become.
    You received the law as transmitted by angels,
    but you did not observe it."

    When they heard this, they were infuriated,
    and they ground their teeth at him.
    But Stephen, filled with the Holy Spirit,
    looked up intently to heaven and saw the glory of God
    and Jesus standing at the right hand of God,
    and Stephen said, "Behold, I see the heavens opened
    and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God."
    But they cried out in a loud voice,
    covered their ears, and rushed upon him together.
    They threw him out of the city, and began to stone him.
    The witnesses laid down their cloaks
    at the feet of a young man named Saul.
    As they were stoning Stephen, he called out,
    "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit."
    Then he fell to his knees and cried out in a loud voice,
    "Lord, do not hold this sin against them";
    and when he said this, he fell asleep.

    Now Saul was consenting to his execution.


    Ps 31:3cd-4, 6 and 7b and 8a, 17 and 21ab

    R. (6a) Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.
    R. Alleluia.
    Be my rock of refuge,
    a stronghold to give me safety.
    You are my rock and my fortress;
    for your name's sake you will lead and guide me.
    R. Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.
    R. Alleluia.
    Into your hands I commend my spirit;
    you will redeem me, O LORD, O faithful God.
    My trust is in the LORD;
    I will rejoice and be glad of your mercy.
    R. Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.
    R. Alleluia.
    Let your face shine upon your servant;
    save me in your kindness.
    You hide them in the shelter of your presence
    from the plottings of men.
    R. Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.
    R. Alleluia.


    Jn 6:30-35

    The crowd said to Jesus:
    "What sign can you do, that we may see and believe in you?
    What can you do?
    Our ancestors ate manna in the desert, as it is written:

    He gave them bread from heaven to eat."

    So Jesus said to them,
    "Amen, amen, I say to you,
    it was not Moses who gave the bread from heaven;
    my Father gives you the true bread from heaven.
    For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven
    and gives life to the world."

    So they said to Jesus,
    "Sir, give us this bread always."
    Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life;
    whoever comes to me will never hunger,
    and whoever believes in me will never thirst."
