First Reading: Acts 4:1-12

A reading from the Acts of the Apostles

In those days:
As Peter and John were speaking to the people,
(after the lame man was healed,)
the priests and the captain of the temple
and the Sadducees came upon them,
annoyed because they were teaching the people
and proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection from the dead.
And they arrested them
and put them in custody until the next day,
for it was already evening.
But many of those who heard the word believed;
and the number of the people came to about five thousand.

On the next day their rulers and elders and scribes
were gathered together in Jerusalem,
with Annas the high priest and Caiaphas
and John and Alexander,
and all who were of the high-priestly family.
And when they had set them in the midst,
they inquired,
“By what power or by what name did you do this?”

Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them,
“Rulers of the people and elders,
if we are being examined today
concerning a good deed done to a cripple,
by what means this man has been healed,
be it known to you all, and to all the people of Israel,
that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth,
whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead,
by him this man is standing before you well.
This is the stone, which was rejected by you builders,
but which has become the cornerstone.
And there is salvation in no one else,
for there is no other name under heaven given among men
by which we must be saved.”

The Word of the Lord




Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 118:1-2 & 4.22-24.25-27ab (R. 22)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. The stone which the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone.

Give praise to the Lord, for he is good;
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.”

The stone that the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone.
By the Lord has this been done,
a marvel in our eyes.
This is the day the Lord has made;
let us rejoice in it and be glad.

O Lord, grant salvation;
O Lord, grant success.
Blest is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
We bless you from the house of the Lord;
the Lord is God, and has given us light.

R/. The stone which the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone.


Please stand for the Gospel

Alleluia, alleluia.
This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.



Gospel: John 21:1-14

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to John

At that time:
Jesus revealed himself again to the disciples
by the Sea of Tiberias;
and he revealed himself in this way.

Simon Peter, Thomas called the Twin,
Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee,
and two others of his disciples were together.
Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.”

They said to him, “We will go with you.”
They went out and got into the boat;
but that night they caught nothing.
Just as day was breaking, Jesus stood on the beach;
yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. J
esus said to them, “Children, have you any fish?”

They answered him, “No.”

He said to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat,
and you will find some.”

So they cast it,
and now they were not able to haul it in,
for the quantity of fish.
That disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!”
When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord,
he put on his clothes, for he was stripped for work,
and sprang into the sea.
But the other disciples came in the boat,
dragging the net full of fish,
for they were not far from the land,
but about a hundred yards off.

When they got out on land,
they saw a charcoal fire there, with fish lying on it, and bread.
Jesus said to them,
“Bring some of the fish that you have just caught.”
So Simon Peter went aboard and hauled the net ashore,
full of large fish, a hundred and fifty-three of them;
and although there were so many, the net was not torn.
Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.”
Now none of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?”
They knew it was the Lord.
Jesus came and took the bread and gave it to them,
and so with the fish.

This was now the third time
that Jesus was revealed to the disciples
after he was raised from the dead.
