    Acts 5:27-33
    27 And when they had brought them, they set them before the council. And the high priest questioned them,
    28 saying, "We strictly charged you not to teach in this name, yet here you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and you intend to bring this man's blood upon us."
    29 But Peter and the apostles answered, "We must obey God rather than men.
    30 The God of our fathers raised Jesus whom you killed by hanging him on a tree.
    31 God exalted him at his right hand as Leader and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins.
    32 And we are witnesses to these things, and so is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey him."
    33 When they heard this they were enraged and wanted to kill them.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 34:2, 9, 17-20
    1 I will bless the LORD at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
    8 O taste and see that the LORD is good! Happy is the man who takes refuge in him!
    16 The face of the LORD is against evildoers, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
    17 When the righteous cry for help, the LORD hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles.
    18 The LORD is near to the brokenhearted, and saves the crushed in spirit.
    19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous; but the LORD delivers him out of them all.

  • Gospel

    John 3:31-36
    31 He who comes from above is above all; he who is of the earth belongs to the earth, and of the earth he speaks; he who comes from heaven is above all.
    32 He bears witness to what he has seen and heard, yet no one receives his testimony;
    33 he who receives his testimony sets his seal to this, that God is true.
    34 For he whom God has sent utters the words of God, for it is not by measure that he gives the Spirit;
    35 the Father loves the Son, and has given all things into his hand.
    36 He who believes in the Son has eternal life; he who does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God rests upon him.

    Revelation 12:10-12
    10 And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, "Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God.
    11 And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.
    12 Rejoice then, O heaven and you that dwell therein! But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!"

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 34:2-9
    1 I will bless the LORD at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
    2 My soul makes its boast in the LORD; let the afflicted hear and be glad.
    3 O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together!
    4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears.
    5 Look to him, and be radiant; so your faces shall never be ashamed.
    6 This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
    7 The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them.
    8 O taste and see that the LORD is good! Happy is the man who takes refuge in him!

    John 17:11-19
    11 And now I am no more in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name, which thou hast given me, that they may be one, even as we are one.
    12 While I was with them, I kept them in thy name, which thou hast given me; I have guarded them, and none of them is lost but the son of perdition, that the scripture might be fulfilled.
    13 But now I am coming to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
    14 I have given them thy word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
    15 I do not pray that thou shouldst take them out of the world, but that thou shouldst keep them from the evil one.
    16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
    17 Sanctify them in the truth; thy word is truth.
    18 As thou didst send me into the world, so I have sent them into the world.
    19 And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be consecrated in truth.
