SEVENTH SUNDAY OF EASTER — Year A

First Reading: Acts 1:12-14

A reading from the Acts of the Apostles.

The apostles returned to Jerusalem from the Mount called Olivet near Jerusalem – a mere Sabbath’s journey away.  Entering the city, they went to the upstairs room where they were staying: Peter and John and James and Andrew; Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew; James, begot of Alphaeus; Simon, the Zealot party member; and Judas, begot of James.  Also in their company were some of the women who followed Jesus, Jesus’ mother Mary, and some relatives of Jesus.  Together, they devoted themselves to constant prayer.

The Word of God recorded in the Acts of the Apostles.

SEVENTH SUNDAY OF EASTER — Year A

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 27

R:  I believe that I will see the goodness of Our God in the land of the living.

God, you are my light and my salvation;

who will I fear?

You are the stronghold of my life;

of whom will I be afraid?

R: I believe that I will see the goodness of Our God in the land of the living.

One thing have I asked of You, Adonai,

that will I seek after;

That I may dwell in Your house

all the days of my life,

To behold Your beauty

and to inquire in the Temple.

R: I believe that I will see the goodness of Our God in the land of the living.

Hear me when I cry aloud,

be gracious to me and answer me!

You have said, “Seek my face.”

My heart says to You,

“Your face do I seek.”

R: I believe that I will see the goodness of Our God in the land of the living.
