Easter 2nd week Tuesday All pre-Gospel readings


First reading: Acts 4:32-37

The whole group of believers was united, heart and soul; no one claimed for his own use anything that he had, as everything they owned was held in common.

The apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus with great power, and they were all given great respect. 

None of their members was ever in want, as all those who owned land or houses would sell them, and bring the money from them, to present it to the apostles; it was then distributed to any members who might be in need.

There was a Levite of Cypriot origin called Joseph whom the apostles surnamed Barnabas (which means ‘son of encouragement’). He owned a piece of land and he sold it and brought the money, and presented it to the apostles.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 92(93):1-2,5

The Lord is king, with majesty enrobed.

The Lord is king, with majesty enrobed;
  the Lord has robed himself with might,
  he has girded himself with power.

The Lord is king, with majesty enrobed.

The world you made firm, not to be moved;
  your throne has stood firm from of old.
  From all eternity, O Lord, you are.

The Lord is king, with majesty enrobed.

Truly your decrees are to be trusted.
  Holiness is fitting to your house,
  O Lord, until the end of time.

The Lord is king, with majesty enrobed.

Gospel Acclamation

Alleluia, alleluia!
You, O Christ, are the faithful witness, 
the First-born from the dead,
you have loved us and have washed away our sins with your blood.
Alleluia!
