First Reading, A Reading from the Acts of the Apostles Acts5:27-32,40-41

We are witnesses of these words, and so is the Holy Spirit.

The high priest demanded an explanation of the apostles. 'We gave you a formal warning', he said' not to preach in this name, and what have you done? You have filled Jerusalem with your teaching, and seem determined to fix the guilt of this man's death on us'. In reply Peter and the apostles said, 'Obedience to God comes before obedience to men; it was the God of our ancestors who raised up Jesus, but it was you who had him executed by hanging on a tree. By his own right hand God has now raised him up to be leader and saviour, to give repentance and forgiveness of sins through him to Israel. We are witnesses to all this, we and the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey him'. They warned the apostles not to speak in the name of Jesus and released them. And so they left he presence of the Sahedrin glad to have had the honour of suffering humiliation for the sake of the name..

This is the word of the Lord

Second Reading, A Reading from the book of the Apocalypse Apoc 5:11-14

The Lamb that was sacrificed is worthy to be given power, wealth, glory, and blessing.

In my vision, I, John, heard the sound of an immense number of angels gathered round the throne and the animals and the elders; there were ten thousand times ten thousand of them and thousands upon thousands, shouting, 'The Lamb that was sacrificed is worthy to be given power, riches, wisdom, strength, honour, glory and blessing'. Then I heard all the living things in creation - everything that lives in the air and on the ground, and under the ground, and in the sea, crying, 'To the One who is sitting on the throne and to the Lamb, be all praise, honour, glory and power, for ever and ever'. And the four animals said, "Amen'; and the elders prostrated themselves to worship.

This is the word of the Lord

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to John Jn 21:1-9

Jesus stepped forward, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with tthe fish.

Jesus showed himself again to the disciples. It was by tthe Sea of Tiberias, and it happened like this: Simon Peter, Thomas called tthe twin, Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee and two more of his disciples werre together. Simon Peter said, 'I'm going fishing'. They replied, 'We'll come with you'. Tthey went out and got into the boat but caught nothing that night.

it was light by now and there stood Jesus on the shore, though the disciples did not realise that it was Jesus. Jesus called out, 'Have you caught anything, friends?' And when they answered, 'No', he said, 'Throw the net out to starboard and you'll find something'. So they dropped the net, and there were so many fish that they could not haul it in. The disciple Jesus loved said to Peter, 'It is the Lord'. At these words 'It is the Lord', Simon Peter, who had practically nothing on, wrapped his cloak round him and jumped the boat, towing the net and the fish; they were only about a hundred yards from land.

As soon as they came ashore they saw that there was some bread there, and a charcoal fire with fish cooking on it. Jesus said, 'Bring some of the fish you have just caught'. Simon Peter went aboard and dragged the net to the shore, full of big fish, one hundred and fifty-three of them; and in spite of there being so many the net was not broken. Jesus said to them, 'Come and have breakfast'. None of the disciples was bold enough to ask, 'Who are you?'; they knew quite well it was the Lord. Jesus then stepped forward, took the bread and gave it to them, and the same with the fish. This was the third time that Jesus showed himself to the disciples after rising from the dead..

This is the Gospel of the Lord.
