Catholic Missal of the day: Sunday, April 14 2024

Third Sunday of Easter

Acts of the Apostles


Peter said to the people: "The God of Abraham, (the God) of Isaac, and (the God) of Jacob, the God of our ancestors, has glorified his servant Jesus whom you handed over and denied in Pilate's presence, when he had decided to release him.
You denied the Holy and Righteous One and asked that a murderer be released to you.
The author of life you put to death, but God raised him from the dead; of this we are witnesses.
Now I know, brothers, that you acted out of ignorance, just as your leaders did;
but God has thus brought to fulfillment what he had announced beforehand through the mouth of all the prophets, that his Messiah would suffer.
Repent, therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be wiped away."



When I call, answer me, O my just God,
you who relieve me when I am in distress;
have pity on me, and hear my prayer!
Know that the LORD does wonders for his faithful one;
the LORD will hear me when I call upon him.
O LORD, let the light of your countenance shine upon us!
As soon as I lie down, I fall peacefully asleep,
for you alone, O LORD,
bring security to my dwelling.

First Letter of John


My children, I am writing this to you so that you may not commit sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous one.
He is expiation for our sins, and not for our sins only but for those of the whole world.
The way we may be sure that we know him is to keep his command ments.
Whoever says, "I know him," but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
But whoever keeps his word, the love of God is truly perfected in him. This is the way we may know that we are in union with him:

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke


The disciples of Jesus recounted what had taken place along the way, and how Jesus was made known to them in the breaking of bread.
While they were still speaking about this, he stood in their midst and said to them, "Peace be with you."
But they were startled and terrified and thought that they were seeing a ghost.
Then he said to them, "Why are you troubled? And why do questions arise in your hearts?
Look at my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Touch me and see, because a ghost does not have flesh and bones as you can see I have."
And as he said this, he showed them his hands and his feet.
While they were still incredulous for joy and were amazed, he asked them, "Have you anything here to eat?"
They gave him a piece of baked fish;
he took it and ate it in front of them.
He said to them, "These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the law of Moses and in the prophets and psalms must be fulfilled."
Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures.
And he said to them, "Thus it is written that the Messiah would suffer and rise from the dead on the third day
and that repentance, for the forgiveness of sins, would be preached in his name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.
You are witnesses of these things."

St. Peter Gonzales(Dominican Priest (1190-1246))

Saint Peter Gonzalez Dominican Priest (1190-1246) Peter Gonzales, also known as St. Elmo or St. Telmo, was born to an aristocratic Castilian family. He was educated by his uncle, the bishop of Astorga. After professing vows, Peter was made a canon of the local cathedral, later joined the Dominican Order, and preached while working as a chaplain at the court of King St. Ferdinand III. Fr. Peter converted and influenced many of his countrymen. He practiced the norms of piety and performed penances and mortifications. He evangelized throughout Spain and along the Mediterranean coast. St. Peter often vsited sailors aboard their ships to preach the Gospel and pray for their needs. He had the grit of heroes and the spirit and fervor of saints. There is no telling how many he edified, not just his words, but by his example and leadership. After laboring for many years, St. Peter Gonzales passed away on Easter Sunday. He is the help and intercessor of preachers and seafarers.

St. Benezet((1165-1184))

SAINT BENEZET, or Little Bennet (1165-1184) St. Benezet kept his mother's sheep in the country as a child, but also practiced the norms of piety. He built a bridge over the Rhone river in Avignon, in response to the Holy Spirit, and prevented further drownings. He obtained the bishop's approbation, proved his mission by miracles, and began the work in 1177. Benezet passed away in 1184 after directing the bridge's construction. His work was attested by public monuments that are still preserved in Avignon. His remains were buried upon the bridge itself, which was not completely finished until four years after his passing. The structure was attended with miracles from the first laying of the foundations till it was completed in 1188. Other miracles at Benezet's tomb caused the city to build a chapel on the bridge, where his body lay for nearly five hundred years. In 1669, a greater part of the bridge fell down because of water damage. St. Benezet's coffin was taken up, and being opened in 1670 in the grand vicar's presence, the body was found entire and without the least sign of corruption: even the bowels were perfectly sound and the color of the eyes lively and sprightly, though the moisture had damaged the coffin's iron bars. St. Benezet's body was found in the same condition by the archbishop of Avignon in 1674. He, the bishop of Orange, and a large gathering of nobles, transferred St. Benezet's body to the Church of the Celestines with great pomp and solemnity. This Order obtained, from Louis XIV, the honor of keeping St. Benezet's relics until the time that the bridge and chapel are rebuilt.

Sts. Tiburtius(Valerian & Maximus)
