Readings and Antiphons on p 1671 of the Daily Missal

Entrance Antiphon
You are my God, and I confess you: you are my God, and I exalt you; I will thank you, for you became my Saviour.


First Reading: Ephesians 2:19-22

A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Ephesians

Brothers and sisters:
You are no longer strangers and sojourners,
but you are fellow citizens
with the saints and members of the household of God,
built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets,
Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone,
in whom the whole structure is joined together
and grows into a holy temple in the Lord;
in whom you also are built into it
for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

The Word of the Lord



Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 117:1.2 (R. Mark 16:15)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. Go into all the world and preach the Gospel.

O praise the Lord, all you nations;
acclaim him, all you peoples!

For his merciful love has prevailed over us;
and the Lord’s faithfulness endures forever.

R/. Go into all the world and preach the Gospel.


Please stand for the Gospel

Alleluia, Alleluia
You believed, Thomas, because you have seen me, says the Lord; blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.



Gospel: John 20:24-29

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to John

Thomas, one of the twelve, called the Twin,
was not with them when Jesus came.
So the other disciples told him,
“We have seen the Lord.”
But he said to them,
“Unless I see in his hands the print of the nails
and place my finger in the mark of the nails,
and place my hand in his side,
I will not believe.”
Eight days later, his disciples were again in the house,
and Thomas was with them.
The doors were shut,
but Jesus came and stood among them, and said,
“Peace be with you.”
Then he said to Thomas,
“Put your finger here, and see my hands;
and put out your hand and place it in my side;
do not be faithless but believing.”
Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!”
Jesus said to him,
“You  have believed because you have seen me.
Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.”

The Gospel of the Lord


Communion Antiphon
Take your hand and feel the place of the nails, and be no longer unbelieving but believe.
