  • First Reading: Acts of the Apostles 13:14, 43-52

    14 But they passing through Perge, came to Antioch in Pisidia: and entering into the synagogue on the sabbath day, they sat down.
    43 And when the synagogue was broken up, many of the Jews, and of the strangers who served God, followed Paul and Barnabas: who speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God.
    44 But the next sabbath day, the whole city almost came together, to hear the word of God.
    45 And the Jews seeing the multitudes, were filled with envy, and contradicted those things which were said by Paul, blaspheming.
    46 Then Paul and Barnabas said boldly: To you it behoved us first to speak the word of God: but because you reject it, and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, behold we turn to the Gentiles.
    47 For so the Lord hath commanded us: I have set thee to be the light of the Gentiles; that thou mayest be for salvation unto the utmost part of the earth.
    48 And the Gentiles hearing it, were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to life everlasting, believed.
    49 And the word of the Lord was published throughout the whole country.
    50 But the Jews stirred up religious and honourable women, and the chief men of the city, and raised persecution against Paul and Barnabas: and cast them out of their coasts.
    51 But they, shaking off the dust of their feet against them, came to Iconium.
    52 And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Ghost.

  • Psalm: Psalms 100:1-2, 3, 5

    1 Sing joyfully to God, all the earth: serve ye the Lord with gladness.
    2 Come in before his presence with exceeding great joy.
    3 Know ye that the Lord he is God: he made us, and not we ourselves. We are his people and the sheep of his pasture.
    5 For the Lord is sweet, his mercy endureth for ever, and his truth to generation and generation.

  • Second Reading: Revelation 7:9, 14b-17

    9 After this I saw a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and tribes, and peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne, and in sight of the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands:
    14 b And he said to me: These are they who are come out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and have made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
    15 Therefore they are before the throne of God, and they serve him day and night in his temple: and he, that sitteth on the throne, shall dwell over them.
    16 They shall no more hunger nor thirst, neither shall the sun fall on them, nor any heat.
    17 For the Lamb, which is in the midst of the throne, shall rule them, and shall lead them to the fountains of the waters of life, and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

  • Gospel: John 10:27-30

    27 My sheep hear my voice: and I know them, and they follow me.
    28 And I give them life everlasting; and they shall not perish for ever, and no man shall pluck them out of my hand.
    29 That which my Father hath given me, is greater than all: and no one can snatch them out of the hand of my Father.
    30 I and the Father are one.
