Acts 11:21b-26; 13

The Memorial of Saint Barnabas, Apostle.
Readings  and Antiphons on p. 1648 of the Daily Missal.

Entrance Antiphon.

Blessed is this holy man who was worthy to be numbered among the Apostles, for he was a good man, filled with the Holy Spirit and with faith.


First Reading: Acts 11:21b-26; 13:1-3

A reading from the Acts of the Apostles.

In those days:
A great number that believed turned to the Lord.
News of this came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem,
and they sent Barnabas to Antioch.
When 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;
for he was a good man,
full of the Holy Spirit and of faith.
And a large company was added to the Lord.
So Barnabas went to Tarsus to look for Saul;
and 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.

Now in the church at Antioch, there were prophets and teachers, Barnabas, Symeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene,
Manaen a member of the court of Herod the tetrarch,
and Saul.
While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting,
the Holy Spirit said,
“Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul
for the work to which I have called them.”
Then after fasting and praying
they laid their hands on them and sent them off.

The Word of the Lord.


Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 98:1.2-3ab.3cd-4.5-6 (R. 2b)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. The Lord has shown his deliverance to the nations.

O sing a new song to the Lord,
for he has worked wonders.
His right hand and his holy arm
have brought salvation.

The Lord has made known his salvation,
has shown his deliverance to the nations.
He has remembered his merciful love
and his truth for the house of Israel.

All the ends of the earth have seen
the salvation of our God.
Shout to the Lord, all the earth;
break forth into joyous song,
and sing out your praise.

Sing psalms to the Lord with the harp,
with the harp and the sound of song.
With trumpets and the sound of the horn,
raise a shout before the King, the Lord.

R/. The Lord has shown his deliverance to the nations.

Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, Alleluia.
Go and make disciples of all nations, says the Lord; I am with you always, to the close of the age.

Gospel: Matthew 10:7-13

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew.

At that time:
Jesus said to his apostles, “Preach as you go,
saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’
Heal the sick, raise the dead,
cleanse lepers, cast out demons.
You received without pay, give without pay.
Take no gold, nor silver, nor copper in your belts,
no bag for your journey,
nor two tunics, nor sandals, nor a staff;
for the labourer deserves his food.
And whatever town or village you enter,
find out who is worthy in it,
and stay with him until you depart.
As you enter the house, salute it.
And if the house is worthy,
let your peace come upon it;
but if it is not worthy,
let your peace return to you.

The Gospel of the Lord.

Communion Antiphon.
I no longer call you slaves, because a slave does not know what his master is doing. But I have called you friends because I have told you everything I have heard from my Father.
