Saturday of the Sixth Week of Easter

Official Translation

Reading 1 – Acts 18.23-28

Paul, having spent some time in Antioch,
departed and went through
the region of Galatia, and Phrygia,
in order,
establishing all the disciples.

Now a certain Jew named Apollos,
an Alexandrian by race,
an eloquent man,
came to Ephesus.
He was mighty in the Scriptures.
This one had been instructed
in the Way of the Lord;
and being fervent in spirit,
he spoke and taught accurately
the things concerning Jesus,
although he knew only the baptism of John.
He began to speak boldly in the synagogue.
But when Priscilla and Aquila heard him,
they took him aside,
and explained to him
the Way of God more accurately.

When he had determined
to pass over into Achaia,
the brothers encouraged him,
and wrote to the disciples to receive him.
When he had come,
he greatly helped those
who had believed through grace;
for he powerfully refuted the Jews,
publicly showing by the Scriptures
that Jesus was the Christ.

Gospel – John 16.23b-28

Jesus said to his disciples:
"Amen, amen, I say to you,
whatever you may ask
of the Father in my name,
he will give it to you.
Until now,
you have asked nothing in my name.
Ask, and you will receive,
that your joy may be made full.

I have spoken these things to you
in figures of speech.
But the hour is coming
when I will no longer speak to you
in figures of speech,
but will tell you plainly
about the Father.

On that day
you will ask in my name,
and I do not say to you
that I will pray to the Father for you,
for the Father himself loves you,
because you have loved me
and have believed that I came from God.
I came from the Father
and have come into the world.
Now I leave the world
and go to the Father.”
