Easter 5th week Tuesday All pre-Gospel readings


First reading: Acts 14:19-28

Some Jews arrived from Antioch and Iconium, and turned the people against the apostles. They stoned Paul and dragged him outside the town, thinking he was dead. The disciples came crowding round him but, as they did so, he stood up and went back to the town. The next day he and Barnabas went off to Derbe.

Having preached the Good News in that town and made a considerable number of disciples, they went back through Lystra and Iconium to Antioch. They put fresh heart into the disciples, encouraging them to persevere in the faith. ‘We all have to experience many hardships’ they said ‘before we enter the kingdom of God.’ In each of these churches they appointed elders, and with prayer and fasting they commended them to the Lord in whom they had come to believe.

They passed through Pisidia and reached Pamphylia. Then after proclaiming the word at Perga they went down to Attalia and from there sailed for Antioch, where they had originally been commended to the grace of God for the work they had now completed.

On their arrival they assembled the church and gave an account of all that God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith to the pagans. They stayed there with the disciples for some time.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 144(145):10-13a,21

Your friends, O Lord, shall make known the glorious splendour of your reign.

All your creatures shall thank you, O Lord, 
  and your friends shall repeat their blessing.
They shall speak of the glory of your reign 
  and declare your might, O God,
to make known to men your mighty deeds 
  and the glorious splendour of your reign.

Your friends, O Lord, shall make known the glorious splendour of your reign.

Yours is an everlasting kingdom; 
  your rule lasts from age to age.

Your friends, O Lord, shall make known the glorious splendour of your reign.

Let me speak the praise of the Lord,
  let all mankind bless his holy name
  for ever, for ages unending.

Your friends, O Lord, shall make known the glorious splendour of your reign.

Gospel Acclamation

Alleluia, alleluia!
It was ordained that the Christ should suffer
and rise from the dead,
and so enter into his glory.
Alleluia!
