THE GOSPEL

John 20:19-31

As the Father has sent me, so I send you.

Merciful Christ, please
come right through our barricaded doors;
breathe your Holy Spirit upon all of us.
Pick us up when we fall.
Give us your peace
that comes from
your perfect
love
of
us.

Not
to hoard
such treasure;
we want to give it out
to everyone who would believe.

Make us instruments
of the power
of your

resurrection!


THE FIRST READING

Acts 2:42-47

All who believed were together and had all things in common.

Please bring us together, Lord.
Feed your people with
your gift of grace:
it makes us
one in
you.

Thank you for your love: it unites us.
Let it be the one nourishment
that gives us strength
to care for each
person’s
needs.

Let us love each
other well.


THE SECOND READING

1 Peter 1:3-9

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who in his great mercy gave us a new birth to a living hope

Christ,

though we haven’t
seen you,
we love
 you.

Though our poor minds cannot
 grasp you very well,
we believe
 in you.

And with indescribable joy
 in your resurrection
we hope in
you
 always.
