Called through the Word to the everlasting journey in the Spirit

Saturday in the Octave of Easter:                         Peter and John Speak before the Sanhedrin

Readings for Mass
First Reading: Acts 4:13-21
Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 118:1, 14-15, 16-18, 19-21
Gospel: Mark 16:9-15


“We cannot keep from speaking about what we have seen and heard (NRSV, Acts 4:20).”

Let us pray.

 

Father, everyone of us is charged to join with Peter and John as they declared before the Sanhedrin: “We cannot keep from speaking about what we have seen and heard.”

Father, you speak your one Word to all of us at every moment at the depth of our being. No one is excluded from that revelation. But our rehearsing aloud of what we have experienced at the depth of our being enables us all to clarify our understanding and for many of us it prompts us to turn more frequently within and discover what we have perhaps hitherto ignored or even misunderstood.

 

May we always seek clarification from other believers and especially from those charged with teaching within your Church.  May we turn as well to all people of good will for enlightenment and guidance as we speak out with courage what we understand to be the truth.  Keep our minds and hearts ever open to greater comprehension of the one Word that you always speak to us.  

 

Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.     




Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
