Saturday of the Seventh Week of Easter Mass in the Morning 


Lectionary: 302 


Reading 1 Acts 28:16-20, 30-31 


When he entered Rome, Paul was allowed to live by himself, 
with the soldier who was guarding him. 

Three days later he called together the leaders of the Jews. 
When they had gathered he said to them, “My brothers, 
although I had done nothing against our people 
or our ancestral customs, 
I was handed over to the Romans as a prisoner from Jerusalem. 
After trying my case the Romans wanted to release me, 
because they found nothing against me deserving the death penalty. 
But when the Jews objected, I was obliged to appeal to Caesar, 
even though I had no accusation to make against my own nation. 
This is the reason, then, I have requested to see you 
and to speak with you, for it is on account of the hope of Israel 
that I wear these chains.” 

He remained for two full years in his lodgings. 
He received all who came to him, and with complete assurance 
and without hindrance he proclaimed the Kingdom of God 
and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ. 



Responsorial Psalm 11:4, 5 and 7 


R.    (see 7b)  The just will gaze on your face, O Lord. 
R.    Alleluia. 

The LORD is in his holy temple; 
the LORD’s throne is in heaven. 
His eyes behold, 
his searching glance is on mankind. 

R.    The just will gaze on your face, O Lord. 
R.    Alleluia. 

The LORD searches the just and the wicked; 
the lover of violence he hates. 
For the LORD is just, he loves just deeds; 
the upright shall see his face. 

R.    The just will gaze on your face, O Lord. 
R.    Alleluia. 



Alleluia Jn 16:7, 13 


R. Alleluia, alleluia. 

I will send to you the Spirit of truth, says the Lord; 
he will guide you to all truth.
R. Alleluia, alleluia. 



Gospel Jn 21:20-25 


Peter turned and saw the disciple following whom Jesus loved, 
the one who had also reclined upon his chest during the supper 
and had said, “Master, who is the one who will betray you?” 
When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, “Lord, what about him?” 
Jesus said to him, “What if I want him to remain until I come? 
What concern is it of yours?   
You follow me.” 
So the word spread among the brothers that that disciple would not die. 
But Jesus had not told him that he would not die, 
just “What if I want him to remain until I come? 
What concern is it of yours?” 

It is this disciple who testifies to these things 
and has written them, and we know that his testimony is true. 
There are also many other things that Jesus did, 
but if these were to be described individually, 
I do not think the whole world would contain the books 
that would be written.
