    Acts 2:44-47
    44 And all who believed were together and had all things in common;

    46 And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they partook of food with glad and generous hearts,
    47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Colossians 3:12-17
    12 Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, and patience,
    13 forbearing one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.
    14 And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
    15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful.
    16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teach and admonish one another in all wisdom, and sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
    17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

  • Gospel

    Psalms 131:1-3
    1 O LORD, my heart is not lifted up, my eyes are not raised too high; I do not occupy myself with things too great and too marvelous for me.
    2 But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a child quieted at its mother's breast; like a child that is quieted is my soul.
    3 O Israel, hope in the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.
