  • First Reading: Acts of the Apostles 22:3-16

    3 And he saith: I am a Jew, born at Tarsus in Cilicia, but brought up in this city, at the feet of Gamaliel, taught according to the truth of the law of the fathers, zealous for the law, as also all you are this day:
    4 Who persecuted this way unto death, binding and delivering into prisons both men and women.
    5 As the high priest doth bear me witness, and all the ancients: from whom also receiving letters to the brethren, I went to Damascus, that I might bring them bound from thence to Jerusalem to be punished.
    6 And it came to pass, as I was going, and drawing nigh to Damascus at midday, that suddenly from heaven there shone round about me a great light:
    7 And falling on the ground, I heard a voice saying to me: Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
    8 And I answered: Who art thou, Lord? And he said to me: I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom thou persecutest.
    9 And they that were with me, saw indeed the light, but they heard not the voice of him that spoke with me.
    10 And I said: What shall I do, Lord? And the Lord said to me: Arise, and go to Damascus; and there it shall be told thee of all things that thou must do.
    11 And whereas I did not see for the brightness of that light, being led by the hand by my companions, I came to Damascus.
    12 And one Ananias, a man according to the law, having testimony of all the Jews who dwelt there,
    13 Coming to me, and standing by me, said to me: Brother Saul, look up. And I the same hour looked upon him.
    14 But he said: The God of our fathers hath preordained thee that thou shouldst know his will, and see the Just One, and shouldst hear the voice from his mouth.
    15 For thou shalt be his witness to all men, of those things which thou hast seen and heard.
    16 And now why tarriest thou? Rise up, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, invoking his name.

  • Psalm: Psalms 117:1bc, 2

    1 bc Give praise to Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
    2 Let Israel now say that he is good: that his mercy endureth for ever.

  • Gospel: Mark 16:15-18

    15 And he said to them: Go ye into the whole world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
    16 He that believeth and is baptized, shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be condemned.
    17 And these signs shall follow them that believe: In my name they shall cast out devils: they shall speak with new tongues.
    18 They shall take up serpents; and if they shall drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them: they shall lay their hands upon the sick, and they shall recover.
