    Acts 18:9-18
    9 And the Lord said to Paul one night in a vision, "Do not be afraid, but speak and do not be silent;
    10 for I am with you, and no man shall attack you to harm you; for I have many people in this city."
    11 And he stayed a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.
    12 But when Gallio was proconsul of Acha'ia, the Jews made a united attack upon Paul and brought him before the tribunal,
    13 saying, "This man is persuading men to worship God contrary to the law."
    14 But when Paul was about to open his mouth, Gallio said to the Jews, "If it were a matter of wrongdoing or vicious crime, I should have reason to bear with you, O Jews;
    15 but since it is a matter of questions about words and names and your own law, see to it yourselves; I refuse to be a judge of these things."
    16 And he drove them from the tribunal.
    17 And they all seized Sos'thenes, the ruler of the synagogue, and beat him in front of the tribunal. But Gallio paid no attention to this.
    18 After this Paul stayed many days longer, and then took leave of the brethren and sailed for Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aq'uila. At Cen'chre-ae he cut his hair, for he had a vow.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 47:2-7
    1 Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy!
    2 For the LORD, the Most High, is terrible, a great king over all the earth.
    3 He subdued peoples under us, and nations under our feet.
    4 He chose our heritage for us, the pride of Jacob whom he loves. [Selah]
    5 God has gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.
    6 Sing praises to God, sing praises! Sing praises to our King, sing praises!

  • Gospel

    John 16:20-23
    20 Truly, truly, I say to you, you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will turn into joy.
    21 When a woman is in travail she has sorrow, because her hour has come; but when she is delivered of the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a child is born into the world.
    22 So you have sorrow now, but I will see you again and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.
    23 In that day you will ask nothing of me. Truly, truly, I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father, he will give it to you in my name.

    Philippians 4:4-9
    4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.
    5 Let all men know your forbearance. The Lord is at hand.
    6 Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
    7 And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
    8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
    9 What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, do; and the God of peace will be with you.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 34:2-11
    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!
    9 O fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him have no want!
    10 The young lions suffer want and hunger; but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.

  • Gospel

    John 17:20-26
    20 "I do not pray for these only, but also for those who believe in me through their word,
    21 that they may all be one; even as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
    22 The glory which thou hast given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one,
    23 I in them and thou in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that thou hast sent me and hast loved them even as thou hast loved me.
    24 Father, I desire that they also, whom thou hast given me, may be with me where I am, to behold my glory which thou hast given me in thy love for me before the foundation of the world.
    25 O righteous Father, the world has not known thee, but I have known thee; and these know that thou hast sent me.
    26 I made known to them thy name, and I will make it known, that the love with which thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them."
