    1 Corinthians 15:1-8
    1 Now I would remind you, brethren, in what terms I preached to you the gospel, which you received, in which you stand,
    2 by which you are saved, if you hold it fast -- unless you believed in vain.
    3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures,
    4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures,
    5 and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.
    6 Then he appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep.
    7 Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles.
    8 Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 19:2-5
    1 The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
    2 Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night declares knowledge.
    3 There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard;
    4 yet their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them he has set a tent for the sun,

  • Gospel

    John 14:6-14
    6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me.
    7 If you had known me, you would have known my Father also; henceforth you know him and have seen him."
    8 Philip said to him, "Lord, show us the Father, and we shall be satisfied."
    9 Jesus said to him, "Have I been with you so long, and yet you do not know me, Philip? He who has seen me has seen the Father; how can you say, `Show us the Father'?
    10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority; but the Father who dwells in me does his works.
    11 Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father in me; or else believe me for the sake of the works themselves.
    12 "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I go to the Father.
    13 Whatever you ask in my name, I will do it, that the Father may be glorified in the Son;
    14 if you ask anything in my name, I will do it.
