Daily Readings:

  • First Reading

    Acts 10:34, 37-43
    34 And Peter opened his mouth and said: "Truly I perceive that God shows no partiality,
    37 the word which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, beginning from Galilee after the baptism which John preached:
    38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power; how he went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.
    39 And we are witnesses to all that he did both in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They put him to death by hanging him on a tree;
    40 but God raised him on the third day and made him manifest;
    41 not to all the people but to us who were chosen by God as witnesses, who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead.
    42 And he commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that he is the one ordained by God to be judge of the living and the dead.
    43 To him all the prophets bear witness that every one who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name."

    16 the right hand of the LORD is exalted, the right hand of the LORD does valiantly!"
    17 I shall not die, but I shall live, and recount the deeds of the LORD.
    22 The stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner.
    23 This is the LORD's doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.

  • Second Reading

    Colossians 3:1-4
    1 If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
    2 Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.
    3 For you have died, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
    4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

  • Gospel

    1 Corinthians 5:6-8
    6 Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump?
    7 Cleanse out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, as you really are unleavened. For Christ, our paschal lamb, has been sacrificed.
    8 Let us, therefore, celebrate the festival, not with the old leaven, the leaven of malice and evil, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
