    Acts 12:24--13:5
    24 But the word of God grew and multiplied.
    25 And Barnabas and Saul returned from Jerusalem when they had fulfilled their mission, bringing with them John whose other name was Mark.
    1 Now in the church at Antioch there were prophets and teachers, Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyre'ne, Man'a-en a member of the court of Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.
    2 While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, "Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them."
    3 Then after fasting and praying they laid their hands on them and sent them off.
    4 So, being sent out by the Holy Spirit, they went down to Seleu'cia; and from there they sailed to Cyprus.
    5 When they arrived at Sal'amis, they proclaimed the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews. And they had John to assist them.

    Psalms 67:2-3, 5-6, 8
    1 May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face to shine upon us, [Selah]
    2 that thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving power among all nations.
    4 Let the nations be glad and sing for joy, for thou dost judge the peoples with equity and guide the nations upon earth. [Selah]
    5 Let the peoples praise thee, O God; let all the peoples praise thee!
    7 God has blessed us; let all the ends of the earth fear him!

  • Gospel

    John 12:44-50
    44 And Jesus cried out and said, "He who believes in me, believes not in me but in him who sent me.
    45 And he who sees me sees him who sent me.
    46 I have come as light into the world, that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness.
    47 If any one hears my sayings and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world.
    48 He who rejects me and does not receive my sayings has a judge; the word that I have spoken will be his judge on the last day.
    49 For I have not spoken on my own authority; the Father who sent me has himself given me commandment what to say and what to speak.
    50 And I know that his commandment is eternal life. What I say, therefore, I say as the Father has bidden me."

    1 Corinthians 1:18-25
    18 For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
    19 For it is written, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the cleverness of the clever I will thwart."
    20 Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?
    21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe.
    22 For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom,
    23 but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles,
    24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
    25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 40:2, 4, 7-10
    1 I waited patiently for the LORD; he inclined to me and heard my cry.
    3 He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the LORD.
    6 Sacrifice and offering thou dost not desire; but thou hast given me an open ear. Burnt offering and sin offering thou hast not required.
    7 Then I said, "Lo, I come; in the roll of the book it is written of me;
    8 I delight to do thy will, O my God; thy law is within my heart."
    9 I have told the glad news of deliverance in the great congregation; lo, I have not restrained my lips, as thou knowest, O LORD.

  • Gospel

    Matthew 28:16-20
    16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them.
    17 And when they saw him they worshiped him; but some doubted.
    18 And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
    19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
    20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age."
