Entrance Antiphon
Sing praise to our God, all you who fear God, both small and great, for now salvation and strength have come, and the power of his Christ, alleluia.


First Reading: Acts 14:19-28

A reading from the Acts of the Apostles

In those days:
Jews came [to Lystra] from Antioch and Iconium;
and having persuaded the people,
they stoned Paul and dragged him out of the city,
supposing that he was dead.
But when the disciples gathered about him,
he rose up and entered the city;
and on the next day he went on with Barnabas to Derbe.

When they had preached the gospel to that city
and had made many disciples,
they returned to Lystra and to Iconium and to Antioch,
strengthening the souls of the disciples,
exhorting them to continue in the faith,
and saying that through many tribulations
we must enter the kingdom of God.
And when they had appointed elders for them in every church,
with prayer and fasting,
they committed them to the Lord in whom they believed.

Then they passed through Pisidia and came to Pamphylia.
And when they had spoken the word in Perga,
they went down to Attalia;
and from there they sailed to Antioch,
where they had been commended to the grace of God
for the work which they had fulfilled.

And when they arrived, they gathered the church together
and declared all that God had done with them,
and how he had opened a door of faith to the Gentiles.
And they remained no little time with the disciples.

The Word of the Lord


Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 145:10-11.12-13ab.21 (R. see 12a)

Let us pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. Your friends make known, O Lord, the glory of your reign.

All your works shall thank you, O Lord,
and all your faithful ones bless you.
They shall speak of the glory of your reign,
and declare your mighty deeds,

They shall make known your might to the children of men,
and the glorious splendour of your reign.
Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom;
your rule endures for all generations.

Let my mouth speak the praise of the Lord;
let all flesh bless his holy name
forever, for ages unending.

R/. Your friends make known, O Lord, the glory of your reign.


Please stand for the Gospel

Alleluia, alleluia.
Christ had to suffer and to rise from the dead, and so enter into his glory.



Gospel: John 14:27-31a

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to John

At that time:
Jesus said to his disciples,
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you;
not as the world gives do I give to you.
Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
You heard me say to you, ‘I go away, and I will come to you.’
If you loved me, you would have rejoiced,
because I go to the Father;
for the Father is greater than I.
And now I have told you before it takes place,
so that when it does take place, you may believe.
I will no longer talk much with you,
for the ruler of this world is coming.
He has no power over me;
but I do as the Father has commanded me,
so that the world may know that I love the Father.”

The Gospel of the Lord
