Saturday of the Sixth Week of Easter
Readings and Antiphons on p 554 of the Daily Missal

Entrance Antiphon
O chosen people, proclaim the mighty works of him, who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light, alleluia.


First Reading: Acts 18:23-28

A reading from the Acts of the Apostles

After spending some time in Antioch, Paul departed
and went from place to place
through the region of Galatia and Phrygia,
strengthening all the disciples.

Now a Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria
came to Ephesus.
He was an eloquent man, well versed in the scriptures.
He had been instructed in the way of the Lord;
and being fervent in spirit,
he spoke and taught accurately the things concerning Jesus,
though he knew only the baptism of John.
He began to speak boldly in the synagogue;
but when Priscilla and Aquila heard him,
they took him and expounded to him
the way of God more accurately.
And when he wished to cross to Achaia,
the brethren encouraged him
and wrote to the disciples to receive him.
When he arrived, he greatly helped those
who through grace had believed,
for he powerfully confuted the Jews in public,
showing by the scriptures that the Christ was Jesus.

The Word of the Lord


Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 47:2-3.8-9.10 (R. 8a)

Let us pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. God is king of all the earth.

All peoples, clap your hands.
Cry to God with shouts of joy!
For the Lord, the Most High, is awesome,
the great king over all the earth

God is king of all the earth.
Sing praise with all your skill.
God reigns over the nations.
God sits upon his holy throne.

The princes of the peoples are assembled
with the people of the God of Abraham.
The rulers of the earth belong to God,
who is greatly exalted.

R/. God is king of all the earth.


Please stand for the Gospel

Alleluia, alleluia.
If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.



Gospel: John 16:23b-28

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to John

At that time:
Jesus said to his disciples,
“Truly, truly, I say to you,
if you ask anything of the Father,
he will give it to you in my name.
Until now you have asked nothing in my name;
ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.

“I have said this to you in figures;
the hour is coming when I shall no longer speak to you in figures
but tell you plainly of the Father.
In that day you will ask in my name;
and I do not say to you that I shall ask the Father for you;
for the Father himself loves you,
because you have loved me
and have believed that I came from the Father.
I came from the Father and have come into the world;
again, I am leaving the world and going to the Father.”
