Friday of the Fourth Week of Easter Brian Schoonover May 17, 2019 Daily Readings Reading 1 Acts 13:26-33 When Paul came to Antioch in Pisidia, he said in the synagogue:“My brothers, children of the family of Abraham,and those others among you who are God-fearing,to us this word of salvation has been sent. The inhabitants of Jerusalem and their leaders failed to recognize him,and by condemning him they fulfilled the oracles of the prophetsthat are read sabbath after sabbath. For even though they found no grounds for a death sentence,they asked Pilate to have him put to death,and when they had accomplished all that was written about him,they took him down from the tree and placed him in a tomb. But God raised him from the dead,and for many days he appeared to thosewho had come up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem. These are now his witnesses before the people.We ourselves are proclaiming this good news to youthat what God promised our fathershe has brought to fulfillment for us, their children, by raising up Jesus,as it is written in the second psalm,You are my Son; this day I have begotten you.” Responsorial Psalm Ps 2:6-7, 8-9, 10-11ab R.(7bc) You are my Son; this day I have begotten you.or:R.

Gospel Jn 14:1-6 Jesus said to his disciples:“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in me. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places.If there were not,would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?And if I go and prepare a place for you,I will come back again and take you to myself,so that where I am you also may be.Where I am going you know the way.” Thomas said to him, “Master, we do not know where you are going;how can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” – – – Lectionary for Mass for Use in the Dioceses of the United States, second typical edition, Copyright Â© 2001, 1998, 1997, 1986, 1970 Confraternity of Christian Doctrine; Psalm refrain Â© 1968, 1981, 1997, International Committee on English in the Liturgy, Inc.
