  • First Reading: Acts of the Apostles 14:5-18

    5 And when there was an assault made by the Gentiles and the Jews with their rulers, to use them contumeliously, and to stone them:
    6 They understanding it, fled to Lystra, and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and to the whole country round about, and were there preaching the gospel.
    7 And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, a cripple from his mother's womb, who never had walked.
    8 This same heard Paul speaking. Who looking upon him, and seeing that he had faith to be healed,
    9 Said with a loud voice: Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped up, and walked.
    10 And when the multitudes had seen what Paul had done, they lifted up their voice in the Lycaonian tongue, saying: The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men;
    11 And they called Barnabas, Jupiter: but Paul, Mercury; because he was chief speaker.
    12 The priest also of Jupiter that was before the city, bringing oxen and garlands before the gate, would have offered sacrifice with the people.
    13 Which, when the apostles Barnabas and Paul had heard, rending their clothes, they leaped out among the people, crying,
    14 And saying: Ye men, why do ye these things? We also are mortals, men like unto you, preaching to you to be converted from these vain things, to the living God, who made the heaven, and the earth, and the sea, and all things that are in them:
    15 Who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways.
    16 Nevertheless he left not himself without testimony, doing good from heaven, giving rains and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness.
    17 And speaking these things, they scarce restrained the people from sacrificing to them.
    18 Now there came thither certain Jews from Antioch, and Iconium: and persuading the multitude, and stoning Paul, drew him out of the city, thinking him to be dead.

  • Psalm: Psalms 115:1-2, 3-4, 15-16

    1 Not to us, O LORD, not to us but to your name give glory because of your mercy, because of your truth.
    2 Why should the pagans say,“Where is their God?”
    3 Our God is in heaven; whatever he wills, he does.
    4 Their idols are silver and gold, the handiwork of men.
    15 May you be blessed by the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
    16 Heaven is the heaven of the LORD, but the earth he has given to the children of men.

  • Gospel: John 14:21-26

    21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them; he it is that loveth me. And he that loveth me, shall be loved of my Father: and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
    22 Judas saith to him, not the Iscariot: Lord, how is it, that thou wilt manifest thyself to us, and not to the world?
    23 Jesus answered, and said to him: If any one love me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him, and will make our abode with him.
    24 He that loveth me not, keepeth not my words. And the word which you have heard, is not mine; but the Father's who sent me.
    25 These things have I spoken to you, abiding with you.
    26 But the Paraclete, the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and bring all things to your mind, whatsoever I shall have said to you.
