  • First Reading: Acts of the Apostles 15:22-31

    22 Then it pleased the apostles and ancients, with the whole church, to choose men of their own company, and to send to Antioch, with Paul and Barnabas, namely, Judas, who was surnamed Barsabas, and Silas, chief men among the brethren.
    23 Writing by their hands: The apostles and ancients, brethren, to the brethren of the Gentiles that are at Antioch, and in Syria and Cilicia, greeting.
    24 Forasmuch as we have heard, that some going out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls; to whom we gave no commandment:
    25 It hath seemed good to us, being assembled together, to choose out men, and to send them unto you, with our well beloved Barnabas and Paul:
    26 Men that have given their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
    27 We have sent therefore Judas and Silas, who themselves also will, by word of mouth, tell you the same things.
    28 For it hath seemed good to the Holy Ghost and to us, to lay no further burden upon you than these necessary things:
    29 That you abstain from things sacrificed to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication; from which things keeping yourselves, you shall do well. Fare ye well.
    30 They therefore being dismissed, went down to Antioch; and gathering together the multitude, delivered the epistle.
    31 Which when they had read, they rejoiced for the consolation.

  • Psalm: Psalms 57:8-9, 10 and 12

    8 My heart is ready, O God, my heart is ready: I will Sing, and rehearse a psalm.
    9 Arise, O my glory, arise psaltery and harp: I will arise early.
    10 I will give praise to thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing a psalm to thee among the nations.
    12 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above all the earth.

  • Gospel: John 15:12-17

    12 This is my commandment, that you love one another, as I have loved you.
    13 Greater love than this no man hath, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
    14 You are my friends, if you do the things that I command you.
    15 I will not now call you servants: for the servant knoweth not what his lord doth. But I have called you friends: because all things whatsoever I have heard of my Father, I have made known to you.
    16 You have not chosen me: but I have chosen you; and have appointed you, that you should go, and should bring forth fruit; and your fruit should remain: that whatsoever you shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
    17 These things I command you, that you love one another.
