  • First Reading: Acts of the Apostles 28:16-20, 30-31

    16 And when we were come to Rome, Paul was suffered to dwell by himself, with a soldier that kept him.
    17 And after the third day, he called together the chief of the Jews. And when they were assembled, he said to them: Men, brethren, I, having done nothing against the people, or the custom of our fathers, was delivered prisoner from Jerusalem into the hands of the Romans;
    18 Who, when they had examined me, would have released me, for that there was no cause of death in me;
    19 But the Jews contradicting it, I was constrained to appeal unto Caesar; not that I had any thing to accuse my nation of.
    20 For this cause therefore I desired to see you, and to speak to you. Because that for the hope of Israel, I am bound with this chain.
    30 And he remained two whole years in his own hired lodging; and he received all that came in to him,
    31 Preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching the things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ, with all confidence, without prohibition. 

  • Psalm: Psalms 11:4, 5 and 7

    4 The Lord is in his holy temple, the Lord's throne is in heaven. His eyes look on the poor man: his eyelids examine the sons of men.
    5 The Lord trieth the just and the wicked: but he that loveth iniquity hateth his own soul.
    7 He shall rain snares upon sinners: fire and brimstone and storms of winds shall be the portion of their cup.

  • Gospel: John 21:20-25

    20 Peter turning about, saw that disciple whom Jesus loved following, who also leaned on his breast at supper, and said: Lord, who is he that shall betray thee?
    21 Him therefore when Peter had seen, he saith to Jesus: Lord, and what shall this man do?
    22 Jesus saith to him: So I will have him to remain till I come, what is it to thee? follow thou me.
    23 This saying therefore went abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die. And Jesus did not say to him: He should not die; but, So I will have him to remain till I come, what is it to thee?
    24 This is that disciple who giveth testimony of these things, and hath written these things; and we know that his testimony is true.
    25 But there are also many other things which Jesus did; which, if they were written every one, the world itself, I think, would not be able to contain the books that should be written.
