Entrance Antiphon:
Romans 6: 9

Christ, having risen from the dead, dies now no more;
death will no longer have dominion over him, alleluia.


Collect:

Grant, O merciful God,
that we may experience at all times
the fruit produced by the paschal observances.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever.


First Reading:
Acts 16:11-15
The Lord opened Lydia’s heart to accept what Paul was saying

Sailing from Troas we made a straight run for Samothrace; the next day for Neapolis, and from there for Philippi, a Roman colony and the principal city of that particular district of Macedonia. After a few days in this city we went along the river outside the gates as it was the sabbath and this was a customary place for prayer. We sat down and preached to the women who had come to the meeting. One of these women was called Lydia, a devout woman from the town of Thyatira who was in the purple-dye trade. She listened to us, and the Lord opened her heart to accept what Paul was saying. After she and her household had been baptised she sent us an invitation: ‘If you really think me a true believer in the Lord,’ she said ‘come and stay with us’; and she would take no refusal.


Responsorial Psalm:
Psalm 149:1-6,9

The Lord takes delight in his people.

Alleluia!

Sing a new song to the Lord,
his praise in the assembly of the faithful.
Let Israel rejoice in its Maker,
let Zion’s sons exult in their king.

The Lord takes delight in his people.
or
Alleluia!

Let them praise his name with dancing
and make music with timbrel and harp.
For The Lord takes delight in his people.

The Lord takes delight in his people.
or
Alleluia!

Let the faithful rejoice in their glory,
shout for joy and take their rest.
Let the praise of God be on their lips:

The Lord takes delight in his people.
or
Alleluia!


Gospel Acclamation:
cf. Luke 24:46,26

and so enter into his glory.
Alleluia!

Or:
John 15:26,27

Alleluia!


Gospel:
John 15:26-16:4
The Spirit of truth will be my witness

Jesus said to his disciples:

‘When the Advocate comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who issues from the Father, he will be my witness. And you too will be witnesses, because you have been with me from the outset.

‘I have told you all this that your faith may not be shaken. They will expel you from the synagogues, and indeed the hour is coming when anyone who kills you will think he is doing a holy duty for God. They will do these things because they have never known either the Father or myself. But I have told you all this, so that when the time for it comes you may remember that I told you.’


Prayer over the Offerings:

Receive, O Lord, we pray,
these offerings of your exultant Church,
and, as you have given her cause for such great gladness,
grant also that the gifts we bring
may bear fruit in perpetual happiness.
Through Christ our Lord.


Communion Antiphon:
John 20: 19

Jesus stood in the midst of his disciples
and said to them: Peace be with you, alleluia.


Prayer after Communion:

Look with kindness upon your people, O Lord, and grant, we pray,
that those you were pleased to renew by eternal mysteries
may attain in their flesh the incorruptible glory of the resurrection.
Through Christ our Lord.
