Readings at Mass

Liturgical Colour: White.


First readingActs 19:1-8 ©
While Apollos was in Corinth, Paul made his way overland as far as Ephesus, where he found a number of disciples. When he asked, ‘Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you became believers?’ they answered, ‘No, we were never even told there was such a thing as a Holy Spirit.’ ‘Then how were you baptised?’ he asked. ‘With John’s baptism’ they replied. ‘John’s baptism’ said Paul ‘was a baptism of repentance; but he insisted that the people should believe in the one who was to come after him – in other words, Jesus.’ When they heard this, they were baptised in the name of the Lord Jesus, and the moment Paul had laid hands on them the Holy Spirit came down on them, and they began to speak with tongues and to prophesy. There were about twelve of these men.
  He began by going to the synagogue, where he spoke out boldly and argued persuasively about the kingdom of God. He did this for three months.

Responsorial Psalm
Psalm 67(68):2-7 ©
Kingdoms of the earth, sing to God.
or
Alleluia!
Let God arise, let his foes be scattered.
  Let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is blown away so will they be blown away;
  like wax that melts before the fire,
  so the wicked shall perish at the presence of God.
Kingdoms of the earth, sing to God.
or
Alleluia!
But the just shall rejoice at the presence of God,
  they shall exult and dance for joy.
O sing to the Lord, make music to his name;
  rejoice in the Lord, exult at his presence.
Kingdoms of the earth, sing to God.
or
Alleluia!
Father of the orphan, defender of the widow,
  such is God in his holy place.
God gives the lonely a home to live in;
  he leads the prisoners forth into freedom.
Kingdoms of the earth, sing to God.
or
Alleluia!

GospelJohn 16:29-33
Λέγουσιν οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ· ἴδε νῦν ἐν παρρησίᾳ λαλεῖς καὶ παροιμίαν οὐδεμίαν λέγεις. νῦν οἴδαμεν ὅτι οἶδας πάντα καὶ οὐ χρείαν ἔχεις ἵνα τίς σε ἐρωτᾷ ἐν τούτῷ πιστεύομεν ὅτι ἀπὸ θεοῦ ἐξῆλθες. ἀπεκρίθη αὐτοῖς Ἰησοῦς·
ἄρτι πιστεύετε; ἰδοὺ ἔρχεται ὥρα καὶ ἐλήλυθεν
ἵνα σκορπισθῆτε
ἕκαστος εἰς τὰ ἴδια καμὲ μόνον ἀφῆτε·
καὶ οὐκ εἰμὶ μόνος,
ὅτι ὁ πατὴρ μετ’ ἐμοῦ ἐστιν.
ταῦτα λελάληκα ὑμῖν
ἵνα ἐν ἐμοὶ εἰρήνην ἔχητε.
ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ θλῖψιν ἔχετε·
ἀλλὰ θαρσεῖτε, ἐγὼ νενίκηκα τὸν κόσμον.
GospelJohn 16:29-33 ©
His disciples said to Jesus, ‘Now you are speaking plainly and not using metaphors! Now we see that you know everything, and do not have to wait for questions to be put into words; because of this we believe that you came from God.’ Jesus answered them:
‘Do you believe at last?
Listen; the time will come – in fact it has come already –
when you will be scattered,
each going his own way and leaving me alone.
And yet I am not alone,
because the Father is with me.
I have told you all this
so that you may find peace in me.
In the world you will have trouble,
but be brave: I have conquered the world.’
