  • First Reading: Acts of the Apostles 6:1-7

    1 And in those days, the number of the disciples increasing, there arose a murmuring of the Greeks against the Hebrews, for that their widows were neglected in the daily ministration.
    2 Then the twelve calling together the multitude of the disciples, said: It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables.
    3 Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.
    4 But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.
    5 And the saying was liked by all the multitude. And they chose Stephen, a man full of faith, and of the Holy Ghost, and Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicolas, a proselyte of Antioch.
    6 These they set before the apostles; and they praying, imposed hands upon them.
    7 And the word of the Lord increased; and the number of the disciples was multiplied in Jerusalem exceedingly: a great multitude also of the priests obeyed the faith.

  • Psalm: Psalms 33:1-2, 4-5, 18-19

    1 A psalm for David. Rejoice in the Lord, O ye just: praise becometh the upright.
    2 Give praise to the Lord on the harp; sing to him with the psaltery, the instrument of ten strings.

    4 For the word of the Lord is right, and all his works are done with faithfulness.
    5 He loveth mercy and judgment; the earth is full of the mercy of the Lord.

    18 Behold the eyes of the Lord are on them that fear him: and on them that hope in his mercy.
    19 To deliver their souls from death; and feed them in famine.

  • Second Reading: 1 Peter 2:4-9

    4 Unto whom coming, as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen and made honourable by God:
    5 Be you also as living stones built up, a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
    6 Wherefore it is said in the scripture: Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious. And he that shall believe in him, shall not be confounded.
    7 To you therefore that believe, he is honour: but to them that believe not, the stone which the builders rejected, the same is made the head of the corner:
    8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of scandal, to them who stumble at the word, neither do believe, whereunto also they are set.
    9 But you are a chosen generation, a kingly priesthood, a holy nation, a purchased people: that you may declare his virtues, who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.

  • Gospel: John 14:1-12

    1 Let not your heart be troubled. You believe in God, believe also in me.
    2 In my Father' s house there are many mansions. If not, I would have told you: because I go to prepare a place for you.
    3 And if I shall go, and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and will take you to myself; that where I am, you also may be.
    4 And whither I go you know, and the way you know.
    5 Thomas saith to him: Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
    6 Jesus saith to him: I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No man cometh to the Father, but by me.
    7 If you had known me, you would without doubt have known my Father also: and from henceforth you shall know him, and you have seen him.
    8 Philip saith to him: Lord, shew us the Father, and it is enough for us.
    9 Jesus saith to him: Have I been so long a time with you; and have you not known me? Philip, he that seeth me seeth the Father also. How sayest thou, shew us the Father?
    10 Do you not believe, that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak to you, I speak not of myself. But the Father who abideth in me, he doth the works.
    11 Believe you not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me?
    12 Otherwise believe for the very works' sake. Amen, amen I say to you, he that believeth in me, the works that I do, he also shall do; and greater than these shall he do.
