FIRST READING

ACTS 15:1-2, 22-29

Some who had come down
from Judea were instructing the brothers,
“Unless you are circumcised
according to the Mosaic practice,
you cannot be saved.”

2 Because there arose no little
dissension and debate by Paul and Barnabas
with them, it was decided that Paul,
Barnabas, and some of the others
should go up to Jerusalem to the
apostles and elders about this question.

22 The apostles and elders,
in agreement with the whole church,
decided to choose representatives
and to send them to Antioch
with Paul and Barnabas. The ones
chosen were Judas, who was
called Barsabbas, and Silas,
leaders among the brothers.

23 This is the letter delivered by them:
“The apostles and the elders,
your brothers, to the brothers
in Antioch, Syria, and Cilicia
of Gentile origin: greetings.

24 Since we have heard that
some of our number who went out
without any mandate from us have
upset you with their teachings
and disturbed your peace of mind,

25 we have with one accord decided
to choose representatives and to
send them to you along with
our beloved Barnabas and Paul,

26 who have dedicated their lives
to the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

27 So we are sending Judas
and Silas who will also convey
this same message by word of mouth:

28 ‘It is the decision of the
Holy Spirit and of us not to
place on you any burden
beyond these necessities,

29 namely, to abstain from meat
sacrificed to idols, from blood,
from meats of strangled animals, and
from unlawful marriage. If you keep
free of these, you will be doing
what is right. Farewell.'”

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:

REFRAIN

May God bless us in His mercy.
May God bless us in His mercy.

SECOND READING

REVELATION
21:10-14, 22-23

 

The angel took me in
spirit to a great, high mountain
and showed me the holy city
Jerusalem coming down
out of heaven from God.

11 It gleamed with the splendor
of God. Its radiance was like
that of a precious stone,
like a jasper, clear as crystal.

12 It had a massive, high wall,
with twelve gates where twelve angels
were stationed and on which names
were inscribed, the names of
the twelve tribes of the Israelites.

13 There were three gates facing east,
three north, three south, and three west.

 

14 The wall of the city had
twelve courses of stones as its foundation,
on which were inscribed the twelve
names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

22 I saw no temple in the city
for its temple is the Lord God
Almighty and the Lamb.

23 The city had no need of sun
or moon to shine on it, for the glory
of God gave it light, and
its lamp was the Lamb.

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION

REFRAIN

Halle, halle, halle-lujah!

Halle, halle, halle-lujah!

Halle, halle, halle-lujah!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Whoever loves me will
keep my word, says the Lord,
and my Father will love him
and we will come to him.

REFRAIN

GOSPEL:

JOHN 14:23-29

Jesus said to his disciples:

“Whoever loves me will keep my word,
and my Father will love him,
and we will come to him and
make our dwelling with him.

24 Whoever does not love
me does not keep my words,
yet the word you hear is
not mine but that of
the Father who sent me.

25 “I have told you this while I am with you.

26 The Advocate, the Holy Spirit,
whom the Father will send in my
name, will teach you everything
and remind you of all that I told you.

27 Peace I leave with you;
my peace I give to you. Not as the
world gives do I give it to you.
Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.

28 You heard me tell you,
‘I am going away and I will
come back to you.’ If you loved me,
you would rejoice that I am
going to the Father; for
the Father is greater than I.

29 And now I have told you
this before it happens, so that
when it happens you may believe.”

COMMUNION
PRAYER OF
SAINT FRANCIS

Make me a channel of your peace
Where there is hatred let me bring your love
Where there is injury, your pardon Lord
And where there is doubt true faith in You

Make me a channel of your peace
Where there is despair in life let me bring hope
Where there is darkness only light
And where there's sadness ever joy

Oh, Master grant that I may never seek
So much to be consoled as to console
To be understood as to understand
To be loved as to love with all my soul

Make me a channel of your peace
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned
It is in giving to all men that we receive
And in dying that we are born to eternal life
