Easter 7th Sunday Year A All pre-Gospel readings


First reading: Acts 1:12-14

After Jesus was taken up into heaven the apostles went back from the Mount of Olives, as it is called, to Jerusalem, a short distance away, no more than a sabbath walk; and when they reached the city they went to the upper room where they were staying; there were Peter and John, James and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot, and Jude son of James. All these joined in continuous prayer, together with several women, including Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 26(27):1,4,7-8

I am sure I shall see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living.

The Lord is my light and my help;
  whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life; 
  before whom shall I shrink?

I am sure I shall see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living.

There is one thing I ask of the Lord,
  for this I long,
to live in the house of the Lord,
  all the days of my life,
to savour the sweetness of the Lord,
  to behold his temple.

I am sure I shall see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living.

O Lord, hear my voice when I call; 
  have mercy and answer.
Of you my heart has spoken:
  ‘Seek his face.’

I am sure I shall see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living.

Second reading: 1 Peter 4:13-16

If you can have some share in the sufferings of Christ, be glad, because you will enjoy a much greater gladness when his glory is revealed. It is a blessing for you when they insult you for bearing the name of Christ, because it means that you have the Spirit of glory, the Spirit of God resting on you. None of you should ever deserve to suffer for being a murderer, a thief, a criminal or an informer; but if anyone of you should suffer for being a Christian, then he is not to be ashamed of it; he should thank God that he has been called one.

Gospel Acclamation

Alleluia, alleluia!
I will not leave you orphans, says the Lord;
I will come back to you, 
and your hearts will be full of joy.
Alleluia!
