First Reading - Acts 4:23-31

23 And being let go, they came to their own company, and related all that the chief priests and ancients had said to them.
24 Who having heard it, with one accord lifted up their voice to God, and said: Lord, thou art he that didst make heaven and earth, the sea, and all things that are in them.
25 Who, by the Holy Ghost, by the mouth of our father David, thy servant, hast said: Why did the Gentiles rage, and the people meditate vain things?
26 The kings of the earth stood up, and the princes assembled together against the Lord and his Christ.
27 For of a truth there assembled together in this city against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the people of Israel,
28 To do what thy hand and thy counsel decreed to be done.
29 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings, and grant unto thy servants, that with all confidence they may speak thy word,
30 By stretching forth thy hand to cures, and signs, and wonders to be done by the name of thy holy Son Jesus.
31 And when they had prayed, the place was moved wherein they were assembled; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spoke the word of God with confidence.
