  • First Reading: Acts of the Apostles 11:21b-26; 12:1-3

    21 And the hand of the Lord was with them: and a great number believing, were converted to the Lord.
    22 And the tidings came to the ears of the church that was at Jerusalem, touching these things: and they sent Barnabas as far as Antioch.
    23 Who, when he was come, and had seen the grace of God, rejoiced: and he exhorted them all with purpose of heart to continue in the Lord.
    24 For he was a good man, and full of the Holy Ghost and of faith. And a great multitude was added to the Lord.
    25 And Barnabas went to Tarsus to seek Saul: whom, when he had found, he brought to Antioch.
    26 And they conversed there in the church a whole year; and they taught a great multitude, so that at Antioch the disciples were first named Christians.

    1 And at the same time, Herod the king stretched forth his hands, to afflict some of the church.
    2 And he killed James, the brother of John, with the sword.
    3 And seeing that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded to take up Peter also. Now it was in the days of the Azymes.

  • Psalm: Psalms 98:1, 2-3ab, 3cd-4, 5-6

    1 Sing ye to the Lord anew canticle: because he hath done wonderful things. His right hand hath wrought for him salvation, and his arm is holy.
    2 The Lord hath made known his salvation: he hath revealed his justice in the sight of the Gentiles.
    3 He hath remembered his mercy his truth toward the house of Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
    4 Sing joyfully to God, all the earth; make melody, rejoice and sing.
    5 Sing praise to the Lord on the harp, on the harp, and with the voice of a psalm:
    6 With long trumpets, and sound of comet. Make a joyful noise before the Lord our king.

  • Gospel: Matthew 5:1-12

    1 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain, and when he was set down, his disciples came unto him.
    2 And opening his mouth, he taught them, saying:
    3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    4 Blessed are the meek: for they shall possess the land.
    5 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
    6 Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after justice: for they shall have their fill.
    7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
    8 Blessed are the clean of heart: for they shall see God.
    9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called children of God.
    10 Blessed are they that suffer persecution for justice sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    11 Blessed are ye when they shall revile you, and persecute you, and speak all that is evil against you, untruly, for my sake:
    12 Be glad and rejoice, for your reward is very great in heaven. For so they persecuted the prophets that were before you.
