  • Saints Philip and James, Apostles 2013:

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 Cor 15:1-8

    I am reminding you, brothers and sisters,
    of the Gospel I preached to you,
    which you indeed received and in which you also stand.
    Through it you are also being saved,
    if you hold fast to the word I preached to you,
    unless you believed in vain.
    For I handed on to you as of first importance what I also received:
    that Christ died for our sins
    in accordance with the Scriptures;
    that he was buried;
    that he was raised on the third day
    in accordance with the Scriptures;
    that he appeared to Cephas, then to the Twelve.
    After that, he appeared to more
    than five hundred brothers and sisters at once,
    most of whom are still living,
    though some have fallen asleep.
    After that he appeared to James,
    then to all the Apostles.
    Last of all, as to one born abnormally,
    he appeared to me.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 19:2-3, 4-5

    R. (5) Their message goes out through all the earth.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    The heavens declare the glory of God;
    and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
    Day pours out the word to day;
    and night to night imparts knowledge.
    R. Their message goes out through all the earth.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Not a word nor a discourse
    whose voice is not heard;
    Through all the earth their voice resounds,
    and to the ends of the world, their message.
    R. Their message goes out through all the earth.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 14:6-14

    Jesus said to Thomas, “I am the way and the truth and the life.
    No one comes to the Father except through me.
    If you know me, then you will also know my Father.
    From now on you do know him and have seen him.”
    Philip said to him,
    “Master, show us the Father, and that will be enough for us.”
    Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you for so long a time
    and you still do not know me, Philip?
    Whoever has seen me has seen the Father.
    How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
    Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me?
    The words that I speak to you I do not speak on my own.
    The Father who dwells in me is doing his works.
    Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me,
    or else, believe because of the works themselves.
    Amen, amen, I say to you,
    whoever believes in me will do the works that I do,
    and will do greater ones than these,
    because I am going to the Father.
    And whatever you ask in my name, I will do,
    so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
    If you ask anything of me in my name, I will do it.”

  • FRIDAY FIFTH WEEK OF EASTER 2013:

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 15:22-31

    22Then it seemed good to the apostles and the elders, with the whole church, to choose men from among them and send them to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas. They sent Judas called Barsab'bas, and Silas, leading men among the brethren, 23with the following letter: "The brethren, both the apostles and the elders, to the brethren who are of the Gentiles in Antioch and Syria and Cili'cia, greeting. 24Since we have heard that some persons from us have troubled you with words, unsettling your minds, although we gave them no instructions, 25it has seemed good to us, having come to one accord, to choose men and send them to you with our beloved Barnabas and Paul, 26men who have risked their lives for the sake of our Lord Jesus Christ. 27We have therefore sent Judas and Silas, who themselves will tell you the same things by word of mouth. 28For it has seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things: 29that you abstain from what has been sacrificed to idols and from blood and from what is strangled and from unchastity. If you keep yourselves from these, you will do well. Farewell." 30So when they were sent off, they went down to Antioch; and having gathered the congregation together, they delivered the letter. 31And when they read it, they rejoiced at the exhortation.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 57:8-10, 12

    7My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast! I will sing and make melody! 8Awake, my soul! Awake, O harp and lyre! I will awake the dawn! 9I will give thanks to thee, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to thee among the nations. 11Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let thy glory be over all the earth!

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    John 15:12-17

    12"This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 14You are my friends if you do what I command you. 15No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. 16You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide; so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. 17This I command you, to love one another.
