    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 John 1:5--2:2

    15This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light and in him is no darkness at all. 6If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not live according to the truth; 7but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. 8If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just, and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.21My little children, I am writing this to you so that you may not sin; but if any one does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; 2and he is the expiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 103:1-4, 8-9, 13-14, 17-18

    1Bless the LORD, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless his holy name! 2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, 3who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, 4who redeems your life from the Pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, 8The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. 9He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger for ever. 13As a father pities his children, so the LORD pities those who fear him. 14For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust. 17But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon those who fear him, and his righteousness to children's children, 18to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    John 12:44-50

    44And Jesus cried out and said, "He who believes in me, believes not in me but in him who sent me. 45And he who sees me sees him who sent me. 46I have come as light into the world, that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness. 47If any one hears my sayings and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. 48He who rejects me and does not receive my sayings has a judge; the word that I have spoken will be his judge on the last day. 49For I have not spoken on my own authority; the Father who sent me has himself given me commandment what to say and what to speak. 50And I know that his commandment is eternal life. What I say, therefore, I say as the Father has bidden me."

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Matthew 11:25-30

    25At that time Jesus declared, "I thank thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to babes; 26yea, Father, for such was thy gracious will. 27All things have been delivered to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and any one to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. 28Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 4:1-12

    After the crippled man had been cured,
    while Peter and John were still speaking to the people,
    the priests, the captain of the temple guard,
    and the Sadducees confronted them,
    disturbed that they were teaching the people
    and proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection of the dead.
    They laid hands on Peter and John
    and put them in custody until the next day,
    since it was already evening.
    But many of those who heard the word came to believe
    and the number of men grew to about five thousand.

    On the next day, their leaders, elders, and scribes
    were assembled in Jerusalem, with Annas the high priest,
    Caiaphas, John, Alexander,
    and all who were of the high-priestly class.
    They brought them into their presence and questioned them,
    "By what power or by what name have you done this?"
    Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, answered them,
    "Leaders of the people and elders:
    If we are being examined today
    about a good deed done to a cripple,
    namely, by what means he was saved,
    then all of you and all the people of Israel should know
    that it was in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazorean
    whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead;
    in his name this man stands before you healed.
    He is the stone rejected by you, the builders,
    which has become the cornerstone.
    There is no salvation through anyone else,
    nor is there any other name under heaven
    given to the human race by which we are to be saved."

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 118:1-2 and 4, 22-24, 25-27a

    R. (22) The stone rejected by the builders has become the cornerstone.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,
    for his mercy endures forever.
    Let the house of Israel say,
    "His mercy endures forever."
    Let those who fear the LORD say,
    "His mercy endures forever."
    R. The stone rejected by the builders has become the cornerstone.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    The stone which the builders rejected
    has become the cornerstone.
    By the LORD has this been done;
    it is wonderful in our eyes.
    This is the day the LORD has made;
    let us be glad and rejoice in it.
    R. The stone rejected by the builders has become the cornerstone.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    O LORD, grant salvation!
    O LORD, grant prosperity!
    Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD;
    we bless you from the house of the LORD.
    The LORD is God, and he has given us light.
    R. The stone rejected by the builders has become the cornerstone.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 21:1-14

    Jesus revealed himself again to his disciples at the Sea of Tiberias.
    He revealed himself in this way.
    Together were Simon Peter, Thomas called Didymus,
    Nathanael from Cana in Galilee,
    Zebedee's sons, and two others of his disciples.
    Simon Peter said to them, "I am going fishing."
    They said to him, "We also will come with you."
    So they went out and got into the boat,
    but that night they caught nothing.
    When it was already dawn, Jesus was standing on the shore;
    but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus.
    Jesus said to them, "Children, have you caught anything to eat?"
    They answered him, "No."
    So he said to them, "Cast the net over the right side of the boat
    and you will find something."
    So they cast it, and were not able to pull it in
    because of the number of fish.
    So the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It is the Lord."
    When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord,
    he tucked in his garment, for he was lightly clad,
    and jumped into the sea.
    The other disciples came in the boat,
    for they were not far from shore, only about a hundred yards,
    dragging the net with the fish.
    When they climbed out on shore,
    they saw a charcoal fire with fish on it and bread.
    Jesus said to them, "Bring some of the fish you just caught."
    So Simon Peter went over and dragged the net ashore
    full of one hundred fifty-three large fish.
    Even though there were so many, the net was not torn.
    Jesus said to them, "Come, have breakfast."
    And none of the disciples dared to ask him, "Who are you?"
    because they realized it was the Lord.
    Jesus came over and took the bread and gave it to them,
    and in like manner the fish.
    This was now the third time Jesus was revealed to his disciples
    after being raised from the dead.
