First Reading: Acts of the Apostles 16:11-15
11 And sailing from Troas, we came with a straight course to Samothracia, and the day following to Neapolis;
12 And from thence to Philippi, which is the chief city of part of Macedonia, a colony. And we were in this city some days conferring together.
13 And upon the sabbath day, we went forth without the gate by a river side, where it seemed that there was prayer; and sitting down, we spoke to the women that were assembled.
14 And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, one that worshipped God, did hear: whose heart the Lord opened to attend to those things which were said by Paul.
15 And when she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying: If you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us.
Psalm: Psalms 149:1-6a,9b
1 Praise ye the Lord from the heavens: praise ye him in the high places.
2 Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.
3 Praise ye him, O sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars and light.
4 Praise him, ye heavens of heavens: and let all the waters that are above the heavens
5 Praise the name of the Lord. For he spoke, and they were made: he commanded, and they were created.
6 He hath established them for ever, and for ages of ages:
9 Mountains and all hills, fruitful trees and all cedars:
Gospel: John 15:26-16:4a
26 But when the Paraclete cometh, whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceedeth from the Father, he shall give testimony of me.
4 But these things I have told you, that when the hour shall come, you may remember that I told you of them.
