Daily Mass Reading – 06 April 2015 – Monday

Easter Monday
First Reading: Acts 2:14, 22-33

14 Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice, and proclaimed to them, “You who are Jews, indeed all of you staying in Jerusalem. Let this be known to you, and listen to my words.

22 You who are Israelites, hear these words. Jesus the Nazorean was a man commended to you by God with mighty deeds, wonders, and signs, which God worked through him in your midst, as you yourselves know.

23 This man, delivered up by the set plan and foreknowledge of God, you killed, using lawless men to crucify him.

24 But God raised him up, releasing him from the throes of death, because it was impossible for him to be held by it.

25 For David says of him: ‘I saw the Lord ever before me, with him at my right hand I shall not be disturbed.

26 Therefore my heart has been glad and my tongue has exulted; my flesh, too, will dwell in hope,

27 because you will not abandon my soul to the netherworld, nor will you suffer your holy one to see corruption.

28 You have made known to me the paths of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence.’

29 My brothers, one can confidently say to you about the patriarch David that he died and was buried, and his tomb is in our midst to this day.

30 But since he was a prophet and knew that God had sworn an oath to him that he would set one of his descendants upon his throne,

31 he foresaw and spoke of the resurrection of the Messiah, that neither was he abandoned to the netherworld nor did his flesh see corruption.

32 God raised this Jesus; of this we are all witnesses.

33 Exalted at the right hand of God, he received the promise of the holy Spirit from the Father and poured it forth, as you (both) see and hear.

Gospel: Matthew 28:8-15

8 Then they went away quickly from the tomb, fearful yet overjoyed, and ran to announce this to his disciples.

9 And behold, Jesus met them on their way and greeted them. They approached, embraced his feet, and did him homage.

10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.”

11 While they were going, some of the guard went into the city and told the chief priests all that had happened.

12 They assembled with the elders and took counsel; then they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers,

13 telling them, “You are to say, ‘His disciples came by night and stole him while we were asleep.’

14 And if this gets to the ears of the governor, we will satisfy (him) and keep you out of trouble.”

15 The soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story has circulated among the Jews to the present (day).
