Reading 1 and// ACTS 22:30 23:6-11 Wishing to determine the truthabout why Paul was being accused by the Jews,the commander freed himand ordered the chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin to convene.Then he brought Paul down and made him stand before them.Paul was aware that some were Sadducees and some Pharisees,so he called out before the Sanhedrin, My brothers, I am a Pharisee, the son of PhariseesI am on trial for hope in the resurrection of the dead.”When he said this,a dispute broke out between the Pharisees and Sadducees,and the group became divided.For the Sadducees say that there is no resurrectionor angels or spirits,while the Pharisees acknowledge all three.A great uproar occurred,and some scribes belonging to the Pharisee partystood up and sharply argued, We find nothing wrong with this man.Suppose a spirit or an angel has spoken to him?”The dispute was so serious that the commander,afraid that Paul would be torn to pieces by them,ordered his troops to go down and rescue Paul from their midstand take him into the compound.The following night the Lord stood by him and said, Take courage.For just as you have borne witness to my cause in Jerusalem,so you must also bear witness in Rome.” Responsorial Psalm and// PS 16:1-2A AND 5, 7-8, 9-10, 11 R.

Gospel and// JN 17:20-26 Lifting up his eyes to heaven, Jesus prayed sayingand I pray not only for these,but also for those who will believe in me through their word,so that they may all be one,as you, Father, are in me and I in you,that they also may be in us,that the world may believe that you sent me.And I have given them the glory you gave me,so that they may be one, as we are one,I in them and you in me,that they may be brought to perfection as one,that the world may know that you sent me,and that you loved them even as you loved me.Father, they are your gift to me.I wish that where I am they also may be with me,that they may see my glory that you gave me,because you loved me before the foundation of the world.Righteous Father, the world also does not know you,but I know you, and they know that you sent me.I made known to them your name and I will make it known,that the love with which you loved memay be in them and I in them.”
