Easter Friday

Official Translation

Reading 1 – Acts 4:1-12

After the crippled man was cured,
As Peter and John spoke to the people,
the priests and the captain of the temple
and the Sadducees came to them,
being upset because they taught the people
and proclaimed in Jesus the resurrection from the dead.
They laid hands on them,
and put them in custody until the next day,
for it was now evening.
But many of those who heard the word believed,
and the number of the men came to be about 5000.

In the morning, their rulers, elders, and scribes
were gathered together in Jerusalem.
Annas the high priest was there,
with Caiaphas, John, Alexander,
and as many as were from the high priests kind.
When they had stood them in the middle of them,
they inquired, “By what power, or in what name, have you done this?”

Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them,
“You rulers of the people, and elders,
if we are examined today
concerning a good deed done to a crippled human,
by which he has been healed,
be it known to you all, and to all the people of Israel,
that in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth,
whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead,
in him does this one stand here before you whole.

He is ‘the stone which was rejected by you, the builders,
which has become the cornerstone.’
There is salvation in none other,
for there is not any other name
under heaven, among humans given,
by which we must be saved!”

Responsorial – Psalm 118.1-2+4, 22-24, 25-27a R. 22

R. The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. or R. Alleluia

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
for his loving kindness endures forever.
Let Israel now say
that his loving kindness endures forever.
Let those who fear the Lord say
that his loving kindness endures forever.

R. The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. or R. Alleluia

The stone that the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone.
This is the Lord’s doing.
It is marvelous in our eyes.
This is the day the Lord has made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it!

R. The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. or R. Alleluia

Save now, I beseech you, O LORD.
O LORD, I beseech you, send now prosperity.
Blessed be he who comes in the name of the LORD.
we have blessed you from the house of the LORD.
God is the LORD, he has shown us light.

R. The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. or R. Alleluia

Gospel – John 21.1-14

Jesus revealed himself again to the disciples
at the sea of Tiberias.
He revealed himself this way.
Simon Peter, Thomas called Didymus,
Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee,
and two others of his disciples were together.
Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.”
They told him, “We too are coming with you.”

They immediately went out, and got into the boat.
That night, they caught nothing.
But when day had already come,
Jesus stood on the beach,
yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus.
So Jesus said to them,
“Little children, you do not have anything to eat, do you?”
They answered him, “No.”
He said to them,
“Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find.”
So they they cast it,
and now they were not able to draw it in
because of the multitude of fish.

So the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter,
“It is the Lord!”
Therefore, Simon Peter having heard that it is the Lord,
wrapped his cloak around him for he was naked,
and threw himself into the sea.
But the other disciples came in the boat
for they were not far from the land,
about two hundred cubits away,
dragging the net of fish.

So when they got out on the land,
they saw a fire of coals there,
and fish laid on it, and bread.
Jesus said to them,
“Bring some of the fish which you have just caught.”
Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land,
It was full of large fish, one hundred fifty-three;
and even though there were so many, the net was not torn.
Jesus said to them, “Come and eat breakfast.”
None of the disciples dared inquire of him, “Who are you?”
knowing that it was the Lord.
Then Jesus came and took the bread,
gave it to them and the fish likewise.
This is now the third time
that Jesus was revealed to his disciples,
after he was raised from the dead.
