1 st reading: Act 16:9-15
9 During   the   night   Paul   had   a   vision:   there   stood   a
man    of    Macedonia    pleading    with    him    and
saying,   ‘Come   over   to   Macedonia   and   help   us.’
10 When   he   had   seen   the   vision,   we   immediately
tried     to     cross     over     to     Macedonia,     being
convinced   that   God   had   called   us   to   proclaim   the
good news to them.
The Conversion of Lydia 11   We   set   sail   from   Troas   and   took   a   straight
course    to    Samothrace,    the    following    day    to
Neapolis, 12 and   from   there   to   Philippi,   which   is   a
leading   city   of   the   district   of   Macedonia   and   a
Roman    colony.    We    remained    in    this    city    for
some    days. 13 On    the    sabbath    day    we    went
outside   the   gate   by   the   river,   where   we   supposed
there   was   a   place   of   prayer;   and   we   sat   down   and
spoke   to   the   women   who   had   gathered   there. 14 A
certain    woman    named    Lydia,    a    worshipper    of
God,   was   listening   to   us;   she   was   from   the   city
of   Thyatira    and    a    dealer    in    purple    cloth.   The
Lord   opened   her   heart   to   listen   eagerly   to   what
was   said   by   Paul. 15 When   she   and   her   household
were   baptized,   she   urged   us,   saying,   ‘If   you   have
judged   me   to   be   faithful   to   the   Lord,   come   and
stay at my home.’ And she prevailed upon us.
Gospel: John 14:23-29
23 Jesus   answered   him,   ‘Those   who   love   me   will
keep   my   word,   and   my   Father   will   love   them,
and   we   will   come   to   them   and   make   our   home
with   them. 24 Whoever   does   not   love   me   does
not   keep   my   words;   and   the   word   that   you   hear
is   not   mine,   but   is   from   the   Father   who   sent   me.  
25   ‘I   have   said   these   things   to   you   while   I   am
still    with    you. 26 But    the   Advocate,    the    Holy
Spirit,   whom   the   Father   will   send   in   my   name,
will   teach   you   everything,   and   remind   you   of
all   that   I   have   said   to   you. 27 Peace   I   leave   with
you;   my   peace   I   give   to   you.   I   do   not   give   to
you   as   the   world   gives.   Do   not   let   your   hearts
be    troubled,    and    do    not    let    them    be    afraid.
28 You   heard   me   say   to   you,   “I   am   going   away,
and   I   am   coming   to   you.”   If   you   loved   me,   you
would   rejoice   that   I   am   going   to   the   Father,
because   the   Father   is   greater   than   I. 29 And   now
I   have   told   you   this   before   it   occurs,   so   that
when it does occur, you may believe.
Psalm 67
The Nations Called to Praise God
1   May   God   be   gracious   to   us   and   bless   us   and
make   his   face   to   shine   upon   us, 2   that   your   way
may   be   known   upon   earth,   your   saving   power
among   all   nations.   3   Let   the   peoples   praise
you, O God; let all the peoples praise you.
4   Let   the   nations   be   glad   and   sing   for   joy,   for
you   judge   the   peoples   with   equity   and   guide   the
nations    upon    earth. 5    Let    the    peoples    praise
you,   O   God;   let   all   the   peoples   praise   you. 6
The    earth    has    yielded    its    increase;God,    our
God,   has   blessed   us. 7   May   God   continue   to
bless us; let all the ends of the earth revere him.
