NEW TO THE APPEAL IN 2014 ONLY:
STANDARD AND SPECIAL TIMING
Annual Catholic Appeal Coordinators realize that all parishes will conduct
the Bishop’s Capital Campaign (The ONE Campaign) in 2013 or 2014.
Your parish has received “Special” Annual Catholic Appeal Instructions,
based on our understanding of when your parish plans to conduct the
ONE Campaign.
Please review Tab 2: New to the Appeal for details.

WHO BENEFITS FROM THE APPEAL?
The poor and the vulnerable are assisted by more than 100 programs that serve
the mentally ill, the homeless, immigrants, the elderly, working families, teens at risk,
pregnant women, infants, single parent families, and the hungry with: emergency food,
shelter and clothing, permanent and transitional housing, counseling, job training,
pregnancy counseling, post and pre-natal care, independent living skills, mentoring,
citizenship and immigration services, parenting skills, information and referral, afterschool care and other life sustaining services. (See Contacts Section for program listing)
Seminarians currently in formation to serve as priests in our diocese are assisted
through the Seminarian Education Fund, which offsets the rising cost of education.
Families who desire a Catholic education for their children but cannot afford it
may be granted need-based tuition assistance.
Local individuals and families in need are assisted by countless parish
programs that provide life-sustaining social services and spiritual development.

NEW TO THE APPEAL IN 2014 ONLY:
STANDARD AND SPECIAL TIMING
The Annual Catholic Appeal is vital, on an annual basis, to more than one
hundred programs that assist people in the 20 counties of our diocese.
For 2014, Appeal Coordinators have organized Appeal timing in recognition
of the various timing parishes have chosen to conduct the ONE Campaign.
For parishes conducting the ONE Campaign in 2013
Annual Catholic Appeal activities follow the traditional
“Standard” approach. Appeal Weekend is March 1-2,
the weekend before Lent begins.
For parishes conducting the ONE Campaign in 2014
Annual Catholic Appeal activities follow a one-time
“Special” timeline. Appeal Weekend is any weekend in June
that works best for the parish.
Please review the following pages:
 Standard and Special Appeal Timing
 List of Standard parishes by region and deanery
 List of Special parishes by region and deanery
Please contact an Appeal Coordinator
if you have questions

USE QUARTERLY PARISH RESULTS
TO REPORT BACK TO PARISHIONERS
Your pastor receives updated parish results once a quarter from the Annual
Catholic Appeal. The Parish Results Report shows total households
participating to date and total gifts and pledges recorded to date. The report
also projects the total 25% share amount your parish will receive, assuming
all parishioners complete their pledges. Your results have the potential to
grow until the 2014 Appeal concludes on January 31, 2015. We encourage
you to let your parishioners know how your parish is doing throughout the
year and to ask those who have not yet participated to consider a gift.

READ THE ADVOCATE ADVISOR
The Advocate Advisor is a newsletter from Annual Catholic Appeal
Coordinators. It contains updates and important information and is
published as needed to serve and inform Parish Advocates primarily
by e-mail. Hard copies are sent to those who do not have e-mail.
4.14
ADDITIONAL BEST PRACTICES
Parish advocates say these steps contribute to their success:
 Have your pastor give a motivational talk about how funds are used
in your parish
 Have your pastor do a follow up letter to those in your parish who
have not yet participated, stressing participation is what matters, not
the amount given
 Link the Appeal to parish milestones, such as a major anniversary
 Thank donors often. Report back how funds are used, what is
happening, how people are helped.
 Do awareness activities on the weekends prior to Appeal
 At the time when completed Appeal envelopes are collected, have
your ushers carry extra envelopes, so they can have cash donors
place their cash in an envelope before placing their gift in the
collection basket.
Share your own best practices with Appeal Coordinators on the
Logistics Survey or contact directly.

TALKING POINTS

Bishop Soto asks all parishes to participate in the Bishop’s Capital
Campaign (The ONE Campaign) and the Annual Catholic Appeal.
How is the Annual Catholic Appeal different from the ONE Campaign?
Annual Catholic Appeal
The ONE Campaign
What is it?
Our annual tradition that connects us
to thousands of people who need our
help every day.
Brings Bishop Soto’s strategic plan to
fruition by focusing on crucial areas of
need for the future for our church.
Who
benefits?
The poor and the vulnerable
who need our help every day:
Six areas of need for a vibrant and
successful future church:
Catholic Social Service Programs:
More than 100 programs that assist
people in desperate need on a daily
basis benefit from 50% of net
proceeds.
Catholic Schools: $15 million helps
Catholic schools to be the best option in
every neighborhood: focus on
technology, student access and facilities.
Parish Programs: For parish
programs that assist poor and
vulnerable in the parish and local
community, 25% of all gifts received
from their parishioners are returned to
the parish.
Seminarians and Catholic school
students in need: 25% is shared
between the cost of Seminarian
education of new priests for our
diocese and tuition assistance for
deserving families in our most
economically-challenged
communities.
How does my One-time gift or a pledge over a
pledge work? maximum 10-month period.

needs to strengthen the parish

5.1
Why is the Annual Catholic Appeal necessary?
The Annual Catholic Appeal is our annual tradition that connects us to
thousands of people in our diocese who need our help every day. Bishop
Soto’s vision calls for all Catholics to make a financial donation to the Appeal
each year.
It is vital, on an annual basis, to more than one hundred programs that help
people in desperate need to overcome extreme physical, economic or
psychological hardship. Last year alone, an estimated 110,000 people in
the 20 counties of our diocese were helped by Catholic works and parish
programs that receive funding from the Annual Catholic Appeal.
Who should participate in the Annual Catholic Appeal?
In response to the needs of our diocesan community, Bishop Soto asks that
all parishioners participate in the Annual Catholic Appeal. As Catholics in
service to others, it is vital that we all participate in the Appeal to assist
people in need through ministries too large for a single parish to handle.
Why is it important for each family to use the donation envelope?
Every gift is important. Every household in each parish is asked to
participate with whatever gift they can afford. Each gift is counted as an
individual gift by the envelope, even if the donor chooses anonymity.
How is the Annual Catholic Appeal Case determined?
The Annual Catholic Appeal case is determined by the Bishop of the
Diocese of Sacramento in consultation with diocesan leadership and in
response to diocesan needs and priorities.
Has the Case changed?
Since 2003, 75% of the Annual Catholic Appeal case has funded social
service needs throughout the 20 counties of the Diocese through agency
programs and parish social ministries. Since 2009, the remaining 25% goes
to Seminarian education and Catholic School tuition assistance. (See
History of the Appeal in Tab 1: Background / Organization for details)
5.2
How is the Case is funded?
75 percent will benefit those in need through funding social service
programs (50% of net proceeds is granted to agency programs throughout
the diocese that are too large for a single parish to handle; 25% of gross
proceeds is returned to parishes for their own ministry to people in need).
The remaining 25 percent of net proceeds helps finance the formation of
seminarians who will serve as priests in our diocese, and helps provide
need-based tuition assistance to deserving families in our most
economically-challenged communities.
What is the 25% Parish Share?
The parish share is 25% of what is raised from parishioners in the parish.
These funds are returned to the parish by the Diocesan Finance Office
quarterly based on actual receipts.
How should the Parish Share be used and who decides?
Parish Share funds can be used for:
• its own outreach ministries to people in need
• for grants to community programs that serve people in need
• grants to other parishes in poor areas
Use of the 25% Parish Share is determined by the Pastor in consultation
with parish leaders.
How is Seminarian Education funded?
Funds raised are applied directly to the cost of seminarian tuition and books.
The contribution from the Annual Catholic Appeal covers approximately 10%
of the total cost of educating our seminarians.
How is the need for tuition assistance determined?
The Diocese of Sacramento is committed to ensuring that Catholic
education is available to all Catholic youth regardless of demographic or
socio-economic background.
Proceeds from the Appeal go to various schools throughout the diocese
where it has been determined that the supporting parish may not have the
necessary funds to meet the scholarship needs of the school.
5.3

Members and Partners of Catholic Charities receive funds from the Annual
Catholic Appeal.

What are the administrative costs of the Appeal?
The Annual Catholic Appeal is a year-round effort of dedicated volunteers at
the parish, deanery and diocesan level. A small group of staff oversee the
necessary strategic implementation and process funds as they are received.
To date total outreach and administrative costs remain under 10%. As the
Appeal grows, this percentage continues to decrease.

5.5
¿Porqué es necesario el Llamado Católico Anual?
En estos tiempos donde se enfrentan retos económicos – se ha
concentrado un gran esfuerzo en los programas apoyados por el Llamado
Católico Anual. Como católicos al servicio de los demás, es vital que
participemos en el Llamado para asistir a personas necesitadas a través
de ministerios demasiado grandes que una sola parroquia no podría
administrar.
¿Quiénes deben participar en el Llamado Católico Anual?
Como respuesta a las necesidades de nuestra comunidad diocesana, el
Obispo Soto pide que todos los feligreses participen en el Llamado
Católico Anual.
¿Porqué es importante que cada una de las familias utilicen el sobre
para su donativo?
Cada donativo es importante. Cada familia perteneciente a cada una de las
parroquias es llamada a participar con el donativo que ellos puedan
proporcionar. Cada donativo es contado individualmente a través del
sobre, aun si el participante desea permanecer en anonimato.
¿Cómo se determina lo que apoyará el Llamado Cátolico Anual?
Lo que el Llamado Católico Anual apoyara es determinado por el Obispo
de la Diócesis de Sacramento en consulta con líderes diocesanos y en
respuesta a las necesidades y prioridades diocesanas.
¿Cómo ha venido cambiando lo que apoya el Llamado?
Desde el 2005, el 75% del Llamado Católico Anual ha financiado las
necesidades de servicio social de los 20 condados de la diócesis a través
de programas de agencia y ministerios sociales parroquiales. El 25%
restante ha sido asignado a necesidades diocesanas tales como, la
educación de Seminaristas, la asistencia de colegiatura para la educación
católica y fondos parroquiales. (Para mas detalles favor de ver la historia
del Llamado en la sección de fondo).
5.6
¿Cómo es financiado lo que apoya el Llamado Católico Anual?
El 75% beneficiará a aquellos necesitados mediante los fondos para los
programas de servicios sociales; el 50% del valor neto será otorgado a los
programas de agencia a lo largo de la diócesis; el 25% del valor en bruto es
devuelto a las parroquias para sus propios ministerios sociales.
El 25% del valor neto restante asistirá con el financiamiento de la formación de
los seminaristas quienes servirán como sacerdotes en nuestra diócesis, y
ayudará a proveer asistencia con la colegiatura a aquellas familias con mayor
necesidad que deseen una educación Católica para sus hijos.
¿A qué se refiere el Porcentaje Parroquial del 25%?
El Porcentaje Parroquial del 25% se refiere a lo recaudado en cada parroquia
gracias a la generosidad de los feligreses. Estos fondos son devueltos
trimestralmente a la parroquia por medio de la Oficina Diocesana de Finanzas.
¿Cómo debe ser el Porcentaje Parroquial empleado y quién lo decide?
Los fondos del Porcentaje Parroquial pueden ser empleados para:
 Ministerios propios de alcance para personas necesitadas
 Becas para programas comunitarios que asisten a personas necesitadas
 Becas para otras parroquias en áreas menos afortunadas
El uso del 25% del Porcentaje Parroquial es determinado por el Párroco en
consulta con líderes parroquiales.
¿Cómo es la Educación del Seminario financiada?
Los fondos recaudados son directamente empleados para cubrir el costo de
colegiatura y libros. En el 2012 la contribución del Llamado Católico Anual
cubrió aproximadamente un 10% del costo total de la educación de nuestros
seminaristas.
¿Cómo se determina la asistencia en colegiatura para los necesitados?
La Diócesis de Sacramento se compromete a asegurar que la educación
católica esta disponible a toda juventud católica a pesar de su situación
demográfica o socioeconómica.
Fondos del Llamado Católico Anual apoyan a varias escuelas católicas por toda
la diócesis en las cuales las parroquias a que pertenecen las escuelas no
5.7
tengan los fondos necesarios para responder a las necesidades de la escuela
para proveer becas a sus familias.

¿Cuáles son los costos administrativos del Llamado?
El Llamado Católico Anual es un esfuerzo de voluntarios a nivel diocesano,
decanato y parroquial. Un pequeño grupo de empleados supervisa la estrategia
necesaria para implementar y procesar los fondos cuando son recibidos. Hasta
el día de hoy, los costos administrativos y de alcance/promoción permanecen
bajo el 10%. Conforme el Llamado aumenta, éste porcentaje sigue en
disminución.

*** PASTOR’S INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE ***
(AFTER THE GOSPEL)
Pastor: The readings for June weekends are provided in
this section should you find them helpful.
Introduction
Pastor:
For the past 24 years, the Annual Catholic Appeal has assisted tens of
thousands of people in need in the 20 counties of our Diocese. The Annual
Catholic Appeal is our annual tradition that connect us to people who need
our help every day. The Annual Catholic Appeal has become vital to more
than one hundred programs that assist people in desperate situations
throughout the corners of our diocese. In addition, the demand for new
priests and tuition assistance for Catholic school families in our most
economically-challenged communities continues to grow.
Today, our parish community is joining with all the other parishes in our
diocese to greatly improve the lives of our brothers and sisters in Christ who
are poor and vulnerable, support our seminarians, provide tuition assistance
for our Catholic schools, and support our own parish social service ministry
needs.
Let’s take a few minutes now to learn more about the impact of the Appeal.

Invitation to Participate
Pastor:
It is now time for each of us to consider and record our commitments in
support of the critical needs in our Diocese which we just heard about.
My hope is that each household in our parish, including myself, will make a
commitment. Together, as a parish family, we can have a significant impact
on the lives of others if we all do our part.
Let us pray for a spirit of generosity…..
Lord, our God,
we ask your blessing on us
as we consider what we will give to the Annual Catholic Appeal.
Thank you for what you have generously given to us.
Inspire us to be generous in response to the many needs
which have been presented to us by Bishop Soto
and the other speakers we have heard.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.
Pastor or Pastor Designee:
There are commitment envelopes in the pews. I ask those sitting at the
ends to pass down the envelopes and pencils. If one adult in each
household will take one, we will fill it out together. (Pause) – As the
envelopes and pencils are being passed, please remember that our goal is
to increase participation – so please do what you can.
We know that some of you may have already filled out the envelope that you
received in the mail with the brochure. If you have already sent the envelope
in, please bear with us.
7.7
We’re going to “walk through” the envelope together:
The pledge form is on the inside left panel of the envelope.
• Step 1: Please prayerfully consider your gift. I encourage everyone to
consider a pledge gift. For instance, a commitment of only $30 per
month provides $240 over an eight-month period. To be sure, all gifts
are important and please do what you can.
• Step 2: A third of the way down from the top is a space to record your
one-time gift or ten-month pledge. (pause)
• Step 3: In the middle of the form is a space to complete your
household and parish information -- please clearly print the parish
name, your name, address, and phone (pause)
If you prefer not to give your name, it is OK to leave the space blank.
Your envelope will be counted as an Anonymous donation and is
important because it will help us track our parish participation. If you
choose not to give your household information, please don’t forget to
print our parish name.
• Step 4: On the bottom of the form is the space to record the payment
method you would like to use.
If you wish to make a cash contribution to the Appeal, please put the
cash into one of the Appeal envelopes so we can record it as one of
our parish contributions and to be able to thank you for your
generosity if you choose to include your name.
Note: While you are giving them time to complete their envelopes, fill
out your own envelope. It is important to repeat this at each Mass.
Announce the collection of the envelopes:
Thank you for your patience with this process. At this time, I would ask
the ushers to collect the Appeal commitments. Please place your
sealed envelope in the collection basket during this special Appeal
collection. Then together we will offer our gifts to God in gratefulness
for His many blessings and in service to those in need among us.

SCRIPTURE CONNECTION FOR JUNE 8, 2014
Pentecost Sunday
Vigil Mass
Lectionary: 62
Reading 1 Genesis 11:1-9
The whole world spoke the same language, using the same words.
While the people were migrating in the east,
they came upon a valley in the land of Shinar and settled there.
They said to one another,
“Come, let us mold bricks and harden them with fire.”
They used bricks for stone, and bitumen for mortar.
Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city
and a tower with its top in the sky,
and so make a name for ourselves;
otherwise we shall be scattered all over the earth.”
The LORD came down to see the city and the tower
that the people had built.
Then the LORD said: “If now, while they are one people,
all speaking the same language,
they have started to do this,
nothing will later stop them from doing whatever they presume to do.
Let us then go down there and confuse their language,
so that one will not understand what another says.”
Thus the LORD scattered them from there all over the earth,
and they stopped building the city.
That is why it was called Babel,
because there the LORD confused the speech of all the world.
It was from that place that he scattered them all over the earth.
or Exodus 19:3-8a, 16-20b
Moses went up the mountain to God.
Then the LORD called to him and said,
“Thus shall you say to the house of Jacob;
tell the Israelites:
You have seen for yourselves how I treated the Egyptians
and how I bore you up on eagle wings
and brought you here to myself.
Therefore, if you hearken to my voice and keep my covenant,
you shall be my special possession,
dearer to me than all other people,
though all the earth is mine.
You shall be to me a kingdom of priests, a holy nation.
That is what you must tell the Israelites.”
So Moses went and summoned the elders of the people.
When he set before them
all that the LORD had ordered him to tell them,
the people all answered together,
“Everything the LORD has said, we will do.”
On the morning of the third day
there were peals of thunder and lightning,
and a heavy cloud over the mountain,
and a very loud trumpet blast,
so that all the people in the camp trembled.
But Moses led the people out of the camp to meet God,
and they stationed themselves at the foot of the mountain.
Mount Sinai was all wrapped in smoke,
for the LORD came down upon it in fire.
The smoke rose from it as though from a furnace,
and the whole mountain trembled violently.
The trumpet blast grew louder and louder, while Moses was speaking,
and God answering him with thunder.
When the LORD came down to the top of Mount Sinai,
he summoned Moses to the top of the mountain.
or Ezekiel 37:1-14
The hand of the LORD came upon me,
and he led me out in the spirit of the LORD
and set me in the center of the plain,
which was now filled with bones.
He made me walk among the bones in every direction
so that I saw how many they were on the surface of the plain.
How dry they were!
He asked me:
Son of man, can these bones come to life?
I answered, “Lord GOD, you alone know that.”
Then he said to me:
Prophesy over these bones, and say to them:
Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD!
Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones:
See! I will bring spirit into you, that you may come to life.
I will put sinews upon you, make flesh grow over you,
cover you with skin, and put spirit in you
so that you may come to life and know that I am the LORD.
I, Ezekiel, prophesied as I had been told,
and even as I was prophesying I heard a noise;
it was a rattling as the bones came together, bone joining bone.
I saw the sinews and the flesh come upon them,
and the skin cover them, but there was no spirit in them.
Then the LORD said to me:
Prophesy to the spirit, prophesy, son of man,
and say to the spirit: Thus says the Lord GOD:
From the four winds come, O spirit,
and breathe into these slain that they may come to life.
I prophesied as he told me, and the spirit came into them;
they came alive and stood upright, a vast army.
Then he said to me:
Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel.
They have been saying,
“Our bones are dried up,
our hope is lost, and we are cut off.”
Therefore, prophesy and say to them: Thus says the Lord GOD:
O my people, I will open your graves
and have you rise from them,
and bring you back to the land of Israel.
Then you shall know that I am the LORD,
when I open your graves and have you rise from them,
O my people!
I will put my spirit in you that you may live,
and I will settle you upon your land;
thus you shall know that I am the LORD.
I have promised, and I will do it, says the LORD.
or Joel 3:1-5
Thus says the LORD:
I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh.
Your sons and daughters shall prophesy,
your old men shall dream dreams,
your young men shall see visions;
even upon the servants and the handmaids,
in those days, I will pour out my spirit.
And I will work wonders in the heavens and on the earth,
blood, fire, and columns of smoke;
the sun will be turned to darkness,
and the moon to blood,
at the coming of the day of the LORD,
the great and terrible day.
Then everyone shall be rescued
who calls on the name of the LORD;
for on Mount Zion there shall be a remnant,
as the LORD has said,
and in Jerusalem survivors
whom the LORD shall call.
Responsorial Psalm Psalms 104:1-2, 24, 35, 27-28, 29, 30

Reading 2
Romans 8:22-27
Brothers and sisters:
We know that all creation is groaning in labor pains even until now;
and not only that, but we ourselves,
who have the first fruits of the Spirit,
we also groan within ourselves
as we wait for adoption, the redemption of our bodies.
For in hope we were saved.
Now hope that sees is not hope.
For who hopes for what one sees?
But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait with endurance.
In the same way, the Spirit too comes to the aid of our weakness;
for we do not know how to pray as we ought,
but the Spirit himself intercedes with inexpressible groanings.
And the one who searches hearts
knows what is the intention of the Spirit,
because he intercedes for the holy ones
according to God’s will.
Gospel John 7:37-39
On the last and greatest day of the feast,
Jesus stood up and exclaimed,
“Let anyone who thirsts come to me and drink.
As Scripture says:
Rivers of living water will flow from within him who believes in me.”
He said this in reference to the Spirit
that those who came to believe in him were to receive.
There was, of course, no Spirit yet,
because Jesus had not yet been glorified.
Pentecost Sunday
Mass during the Day
Lectionary: 63
Reading 1 Acts 2:1-11
When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled,
they were all in one place together.
And suddenly there came from the sky
a noise like a strong driving wind,
and it filled the entire house in which they were.
Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire,
which parted and came to rest on each one of them.
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit
and began to speak in different tongues,
as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim.
Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven staying in Jerusalem.
At this sound, they gathered in a large crowd,
but they were confused
because each one heard them speaking in his own language.
They were astounded, and in amazement they asked,
“Are not all these people who are speaking Galileans?
Then how does each of us hear them in his native language?
We are Parthians, Medes, and Elamites,
inhabitants of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia,
Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia,
Egypt and the districts of Libya near Cyrene,
as well as travelers from Rome,
both Jews and converts to Judaism, Cretans and Arabs,
yet we hear them speaking in our own tongues
of the mighty acts of God.”
Responsorial Psalm Psalms 104:1, 24, 29-30, 31, 34

or:
R/ Alleluia.
If you take away their breath, they perish
and return to their dust.
When you send forth your spirit, they are created,
and you renew the face of the earth.
R/ Lord, send out your Spirit, and renew the face of the earth.
or:
R/ Alleluia.
Reading 2 1 Corinthians 12:3b-7, 12-13
Brothers and sisters:
No one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit.
There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit;
there are different forms of service but the same Lord;
there are different workings but the same God
who produces all of them in everyone.
To each individual the manifestation of the Spirit
is given for some benefit.
As a body is one though it has many parts,
and all the parts of the body, though many, are one body,
so also Christ.
For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body,
whether Jews or Greeks, slaves or free persons,
and we were all given to drink of one Spirit.
Gospel
John 20:19-23
On the evening of that first day of the week,
when the doors were locked, where the disciples were,
for fear of the Jews,
Jesus came and stood in their midst
and said to them, “Peace be with you.”
When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side.
The disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.
Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you.
As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”
And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them,
“Receive the Holy Spirit.
Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them,
and whose sins you retain are retained.”

Exodus 34:4b-6, 8-9
Early in the morning Moses went up Mount Sinai
as the LORD had commanded him,
taking along the two stone tablets.
Having come down in a cloud, the LORD stood with Moses there
and proclaimed his name, "LORD."
Thus the LORD passed before him and cried out,
"The LORD, the LORD, a merciful and gracious God,
slow to anger and rich in kindness and fidelity."
Moses at once bowed down to the ground in worship.
Then he said, "If I find favor with you, O Lord,
do come along in our company.
This is indeed a stiff-necked people; yet pardon our wickedness and sins,
and receive us as your own."
Responsorial Psalm Daniel 3:52 - 56
R/ (52b) Glory and praise for ever!

Mend your ways, encourage one another,
agree with one another, live in peace,
and the God of love and peace will be with you.
Greet one another with a holy kiss.
All the holy ones greet you.
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ

and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with all of you.
Gospel John 3:16-18
God so loved the world that he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him might not perish
but might have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world might be saved through him.
Whoever believes in him will not be condemned,
but whoever does not believe has already been condemned,
because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.

Moses said to the people:
"Remember how for forty years now the LORD, your God,
has directed all your journeying in the desert,
so as to test you by affliction
and find out whether or not it was your intention
to keep his commandments.
He therefore let you be afflicted with hunger,
and then fed you with manna,
a food unknown to you and your fathers,
in order to show you that not by bread alone does one live,
but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of the LORD.
"Do not forget the LORD, your God,
who brought you out of the land of Egypt,
that place of slavery;
who guided you through the vast and terrible desert
with its saraph serpents and scorpions,
its parched and waterless ground;
who brought forth water for you from the flinty rock
and fed you in the desert with manna,
a food unknown to your fathers."

Brothers and sisters:
The cup of blessing that we bless,
is it not a participation in the blood of Christ?
The bread that we break,
is it not a participation in the body of Christ?
Because the loaf of bread is one,
we, though many, are one body,
for we all partake of the one loaf.
Gospel John 6:51-58
Jesus said to the Jewish crowds:
"I am the living bread that came down from heaven;
whoever eats this bread will live forever;
and the bread that I will give
is my flesh for the life of the world."
The Jews quarreled among themselves, saying,
"How can this man give us his flesh to eat?"
Jesus said to them,
"Amen, amen, I say to you,
unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood,
you do not have life within you.
Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood
has eternal life,
and I will raise him on the last day.
For my flesh is true food,
and my blood is true drink.
Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood
remains in me and I in him.
Just as the living Father sent me
and I have life because of the Father,
so also the one who feeds on me
will have life because of me.
This is the bread that came down from heaven.
Unlike your ancestors who ate and still died,
whoever eats this bread will live forever."

Vigil Mass
Lectionary: 590
Reading 1 Acts 3:1-10
Peter and John were going up to the temple area
for the three o’clock hour of prayer.
And a man crippled from birth was carried
and placed at the gate of the temple called “the Beautiful Gate”
every day to beg for alms from the people who entered the temple.
When he saw Peter and John about to go into the temple,
he asked for alms.
But Peter looked intently at him, as did John,
and said, “Look at us.”
He paid attention to them, expecting to receive something from them.
Peter said, “I have neither silver nor gold,
but what I do have I give you:
in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazorean, rise and walk.”
Then Peter took him by the right hand and raised him up,
and immediately his feet and ankles grew strong.
He leaped up, stood, and walked around,
and went into the temple with them,
walking and jumping and praising God.
When all the people saw the man walking and praising God,
they recognized him as the one who used to sit begging
at the Beautiful Gate of the temple,
and they were filled with amazement and astonishment
at what had happened to him.
Responsorial Psalm Psalms 19:2-3, 4-5
R. (5) Their message goes out through all the earth.
The heavens declare the glory of God;
and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
Day pours out the word to day;
and night to night imparts knowledge.
R. Their message goes out through all the earth.
Not a word nor a discourse
whose voice is not heard;
through all the earth their voice resounds,
and to the ends of the world, their message.
R. Their message goes out through all the earth.
Reading 2 Galatians 1:11-20
I want you to know, brothers and sisters,
that the Gospel preached by me is not of human origin.
For I did not receive it from a human being, nor was I taught it,
but it came through a revelation of Jesus Christ.
For you heard of my former way of life in Judaism,
how I persecuted the Church of God beyond measure
and tried to destroy it, and progressed in Judaism
beyond many of my contemporaries among my race,
since I was even more a zealot for my ancestral traditions.
But when God, who from my mother’s womb had set me apart
and called me through his grace,
was pleased to reveal his Son to me,
so that I might proclaim him to the Gentiles,
I did not immediately consult flesh and blood,
nor did I go up to Jerusalem
to those who were Apostles before me;
rather, I went into Arabia and then returned to Damascus.
Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem
to confer with Cephas and remained with him for fifteen days.
But I did not see any other of the Apostles,
only James the brother of the Lord.
--As to what I am writing to you, behold,
before God, I am not lying.
Gospel John 21:15-19
Jesus had revealed himself to his disciples
and, when they had finished breakfast, said to Simon Peter,
“Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?”
Simon Peter answered him, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
Jesus said to him, “Feed my lambs.”
He then said to Simon Peter a second time,
“Simon, son of John, do you love me?”
Simon Peter answered him, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
He said to him, “Tend my sheep.”
He said to him the third time,
“Simon, son of John, do you love me?”
Peter was distressed that he had said to him a third time,
“Do you love me?” and he said to him,
“Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.”
Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep.
Amen, amen, I say to you, when you were younger,
you used to dress yourself and go where you wanted;
but when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands,
and someone else will dress you
and lead you where you do not want to go.”
He said this signifying by what kind of death he would glorify God.
And when he had said this, he said to him, “Follow me.”

Reading 1 Acts 12:1-11
In those days, King Herod laid hands upon some members of the Church to harm them.
He had James, the brother of John, killed by the sword,
and when he saw that this was pleasing to the Jews
he proceeded to arrest Peter also.
–It was the feast of Unleavened Bread.–
He had him taken into custody and put in prison
under the guard of four squads of four soldiers each.
He intended to bring him before the people after Passover.
Peter thus was being kept in prison,
but prayer by the Church was fervently being made
to God on his behalf.
On the very night before Herod was to bring him to trial,
Peter, secured by double chains,
was sleeping between two soldiers,
while outside the door guards kept watch on the prison.
Suddenly the angel of the Lord stood by him
and a light shone in the cell.
He tapped Peter on the side and awakened him, saying,
“Get up quickly.”
The chains fell from his wrists.
The angel said to him, “Put on your belt and your sandals.”
He did so.
Then he said to him, “Put on your cloak and follow me.”
So he followed him out,
not realizing that what was happening through the angel was real;
he thought he was seeing a vision.
They passed the first guard, then the second,
and came to the iron gate leading out to the city,
which opened for them by itself.
They emerged and made their way down an alley,
and suddenly the angel left him.
Then Peter recovered his senses and said,
“Now I know for certain
that the Lord sent his angel
and rescued me from the hand of Herod
and from all that the Jewish people had been expecting.”
Responsorial Psalm Psalms 34:2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 8-9
R. (5) The angel of the Lord will rescue those who fear him.
I will bless the LORD at all times;
his praise shall be ever in my mouth.
Let my soul glory in the LORD;
the lowly will hear me and be glad.
R. The angel of the Lord will rescue those who fear him.
Glorify the LORD with me,
let us together extol his name.
I sought the LORD, and he answered me
and delivered me from all my fears.
R. The angel of the Lord will rescue those who fear him.
Look to him that you may be radiant with joy,
and your faces may not blush with shame.
When the poor one called out, the LORD heard,
and from all his distress he saved him.
R. The angel of the Lord will rescue those who fear him.
The angel of the LORD encamps
around those who fear him, and delivers them.
Taste and see how good the LORD is;
blessed the man who takes refuge in him.
R. The angel of the Lord will rescue those who fear him.
Reading 2 2 Timothy 4:6-8, 17-18
I, Paul, am already being poured out like a libation,
and the time of my departure is at hand.
I have competed well; I have finished the race;
I have kept the faith.
From now on the crown of righteousness awaits me,
which the Lord, the just judge,
will award to me on that day, and not only to me,
but to all who have longed for his appearance.
The Lord stood by me and gave me strength,
so that through me the proclamation might be completed
and all the Gentiles might hear it.
And I was rescued from the lion’s mouth.
The Lord will rescue me from every evil threat
and will bring me safe to his heavenly Kingdom.
To him be glory forever and ever. Amen.
Gospel
Matthew 16:13-19
When Jesus went into the region of Caesarea Philippi
he asked his disciples,
“Who do people say that the Son of Man is?”
They replied, “Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah,
still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”
Simon Peter said in reply,
“You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
Jesus said to him in reply, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah.
For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father.
And so I say to you, you are Peter,
and upon this rock I will build my Church,
and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.
I will give you the keys to the Kingdom of heaven.
Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven;
and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
*** INVITACION DEL PARROCO A PARTICIPAR ***
(DESPUES DEL EVANGELIO)
Párroco: En esta parte se encuentran las lecturas del Quinto Domingo
del Tiempo Ordinario, el mes de junio, y algunos pensamientos
relacionados al Llamado Católico Anual, para utilizar como quiera.
Introducción
Párroco:
En los últimos 24 años, el Llamado Católico Anual ha ayudado a miles de
personas necesitadas en los 20 condados de nuestra diócesis. En estos
tiempos con tantos desafíos económicos, los ministerios de servicio social
necesitan responder cada vez más y más a la gente necesitada. Además, la
demanda de sacerdotes y de asistencia con el costo de escuela Católica
también se hace más grande.
Hoy, nuestra comunidad parroquial se une a todas las otras parroquias en
nuestra diócesis para mejorar grandemente las vidas de nuestros hermanos
en Cristo, quienes son pobres y vulnerables, para apoyar a nuestros
seminaristas, proveer asistencia por las escuelas Católicas y ayudar a las
necesidades del ministerio de servicio social de nuestra parroquia.
Tomemos ahora unos minutos para escuchar acerca del Llamado.

Invitación a participar
Párroco:
Ahora es el momento de que cada uno de nosotros considere y haga la
decisión de ayudar a las necesidades críticas que hay en nuestra diócesis,
como lo acabamos de escuchar.
Mi esperanza es que cada familia en nuestra comunidad, incluyéndome a
mí mismo, hará ese compromiso de ayudar. Juntos, como familia parroquial,
podemos hacer un impacto significante en las vidas de los más necesitados,
si todos hacemos nuestra parte.
Oremos para tener un espíritu de generosidad…..
Señor nuestro Dios,
te pedimos tu bendición
mientras que consideramos con lo que vamos a contribuir
al Llamado Católico Anual.
Gracias por lo que nos has dado tan generosamente.
Inspíranos a ser generosos en respuesta a las muchas necesidades
que nos ha presentado el señor obispo Soto
y los otros que acabamos de oír.
Te lo pedimos por Cristo nuestro Señor.
Amén.
Párroco o designado del Párroco:
Tenemos sobres del Llamado en las bancas. Les pido por favor a los que
están sentados al final de cada banca que pasen los sobres y los lápices a
los demás. Si un adulto de cada familia toma un sobre, lo vamos a llenar
juntos. (Pausa) – Mientras los están pasando, por favor recuerden que
nuestra meta es incrementar nuestra participación – por favor ofrezcan lo
que puedan.
7.12
Sabemos que algunos de ustedes ya enviaron el sobre que recibieron por
correo con el panfleto. Si ya lo hicieron, por favor tengan paciencia.
Gracias!
Ahora vamos a llenar el sobre juntos:
Se encuentra el formulario de participación al lado izquierdo del sobre.
• Paso 1: Por favor considere su donativo. Les pido a todos que
consideren un donativo mensual. Por ejemplo, un compromiso de $15
por mes se convierta en donativo de $120 por el año.
•
Paso 2: Busque el espacio para poner la cantidad de su donativo, sea
un donativo solo o un donativo mensual.
• Paso 3: En la mitad del formulario hay un espacio para completar los
datos suyos o de su familia y de su parroquia – por favor escriba en
letras de molde, el nombre de su parroquia, su nombre, dirección y
teléfono (pausa)
Si usted prefiere no dar su nombre, está bien, deje el espacio en
blanco. Su sobre será contado como una donación anónima porque
es importante saber cuál es la participación de la parroquia. Si prefiere
no poner su nombre, no se olvide de poner el nombre de la parroquia.
• Paso 4: En la parte de abajo, puede poner los datos de su
contribución (pausa) Si van a contribuir por medio de un cheque, por
favor háganlo a nombre de “Annual Catholic Appeal”
Si prefiere hacer un donativo efectivo, por favor póngalo en uno de los
sobres del Llamado para que podamos marcarlo como donativo
parroquial y para que podamos darles gracias por su generosidad si
incluye su nombre.
(Nota: Mientras que la congregación está completando sus sobres,
llene usted también el suyo. Es importante repetir esto en todas las
misas.)
7.13
Anuncie la colecta de los sobres:
Gracias por su paciencia con este proceso. En este momento, les pido
a los encargados de la colecta que pasen recogiendo los sobres del
Llamado. Así juntos ofreceremos a Dios nuestras ofrendas en acción
de gracias por sus bendiciones y en servicio para los más necesitados
de nuestra comunidad.

Amado:
Alegraos en la medida en que compartís los padecimientos de Cristo,
para que cuando se manifieste su gloria

Si sois vituperados por el nombre de Cristo, bienaventurados seréis,
pues el Espíritu de gloria y de Dios reposa sobre vosotros.

San Juan 17:01-11a
Jesús levantó los ojos al cielo y dijo:

Ahora bien, esta es la vida eterna:
que te conozcan a ti, el único Dios verdadero,
y de aquel a quien tú enviaste, Jesucristo.
Yo te he glorificado en la tierra,
mediante la realización de la obra que me diste que hacer.
Ahora glorifican mí, Padre, contigo,
con aquella gloria que tuve contigo antes que el mundo. "He manifestado
tu nombre a los que me diste del mundo. Pertenecían a ti, y tú me los diste,
y ellos han guardado tu palabra. Ahora saben que todo lo que me has dado
viene de ti, porque las palabras que me diste les he dado a ellos, y ellos las
aceptaron y entendieron que en verdad salí de ti, y han creído que tú
enviaste yo. Yo ruego por ellos. Yo no ruego por el mundo, sino por los
que me has dado, porque son tuyos, y todo lo mío es tuyo y todo lo tuyo es
mío, y yo he sido glorificado en ellos. Y ahora ya no voy a estar en el
mundo, pero ellos están en el mundo, mientras yo voy a ti. "

tiempos o las sazones, que el Padre ha establecido con su autoridad. Pero
recibiréis poder cuando el Espíritu Santo venga sobre vosotros, y seréis mis
testigos en Jerusalén, en toda Judea y Samaria, y hasta los confines de la tierra.

Hermanos:
Que el Dios de nuestro Señor Jesucristo, el Padre de gloria,

para conocerlo a él.
Que los ojos de vuestro corazón sean iluminados,
para que sepáis cuál es la esperanza de que pertenece a su llamado,

y lo dio por cabeza sobre todas las cosas a la iglesia,
la cual es su cuerpo,
la plenitud de aquel que todo lo llena en todo.

y del Hijo, y del Espíritu Santo,
enseñándoles a observar todo cuanto yo os he mandado.
Y he aquí que yo estoy con vosotros todos los días hasta el fin del mundo. "

Aunque las personas emigraban en el oriente,
encontraron una llanura en la región de Sinar, y se establecieron allí.
Ellos dijeron unos a otros:
"Vamos, vamos ladrillos moho y endurecerlos con fuego "
Usaron ladrillos de piedra, y el betún en lugar de mezcla.
Entonces dijeron: "Vamos, vamos a edificarnos una ciudad
y una torre cuya cúspide llegue hasta el cielo,
y así hacer un nombre para nosotros mismos,
de lo contrario, se esparció por toda la tierra " El Señor bajó a ver la ciudad y la
torre . que la gente había construido Entonces el Señor le dijo: "Si ahora,
mientras son un solo pueblo, todos hablan el mismo idioma, que han comenzado
a para ello, nada más tarde que dejen de hacer lo que les suponen hacer.
Vamos a continuación, ir allí y confundamos allí su lengua, para que uno no va a
entender lo que otro dice. " Así los esparció Jehová desde allí sobre toda la

vosotros seréis mi especial tesoro,
más querido para mí que todas las demás personas,
aunque toda la tierra es mía.
Seréis para mí un reino de sacerdotes y una nación santa.
Eso es lo que usted debe decir a los israelitas. "

Romanos 8,22-27
Hermanos:
Sabemos que toda la creación está gimiendo con dolores de parto hasta ahora;
y no sólo eso, sino que también nosotros mismos,
que tenemos las primicias del Espíritu,
nosotros también gemimos dentro de nosotros mismos
a la espera de la adopción, la redención de nuestro cuerpos.
Porque en esperanza fuimos salvados.
Ahora esperan que ve no es esperanza.
Porque, ¿quién espera de lo que uno ve?
Pero si esperamos lo que no vemos, nos esperan con paciencia. De la misma
manera, el Espíritu viene también en ayuda de nuestra debilidad, porque
nosotros no sabemos pedir como conviene, pero el Espíritu mismo intercede con
gemidos inefables. Y el que escudriña los corazones sabe cuál es la intención
del Espíritu, porque él intercede por los santos según la voluntad de Dios.
Evangelio
San Juan 7:37-39
En el último y gran día de la fiesta,
Jesús se puso de pie y exclamó:
"El que tenga sed que venga a mí y beba.
Como dice la Escritura: Los ríos de agua viva correrán de su interior aquel que
cree en mí " Lo dijo en refiriéndose al Espíritu que los que llegaron a creer en él
habían de recibir. Hubo, por supuesto, ningún espíritu, sin embargo, porque
Jesús no había sido glorificado.

Cuando el día de Pentecostés se cumplió,

De repente vino del cielo
un ruido como el de una ráfaga de viento impetuoso,
que llenó toda la casa donde estaban.
Entonces se les aparecieron lenguas como de fuego,
que se repartieron y se posaron sobre cada uno de ellos.
Y fueron todos llenos del Espíritu Santo
y comenzaron a hablar en distintas lenguas,
según el Espíritu les concedía expresarse. Ahora había Judios devotos de todas
las naciones de la tierra en Jerusalén. A este sonido, se reunieron en una gran
multitud, pero ellos estaban confundidos , porque cada uno los oía hablar en su
propia lengua. Estaban atónitos y asombrados le preguntaron: "¿No son todas
estas personas que hablan galileos? Entonces ¿cómo cada uno de nosotros les
oímos en nuestra lengua nativa? nosotros hay partos, medos y elamitas,
habitantes de Mesopotamia, Judea, Capadocia, el Ponto y Asia, Frigia y Panfilia,

procedentes de Roma, tanto Judios y conversos al judaísmo, cretenses y

Señor; hay diversidad de operaciones, pero los mismo Dios que obra todo en

cuerpo es uno y tiene muchos miembros, y todas las partes del cuerpo, siendo
muchos, son un solo cuerpo, así también Cristo. Porque en un solo Espíritu
hemos sido todos bautizados en un cuerpo, si los Judios o griegos, esclavos o
libres, ya todos se nos dio a beber de un mismo Espíritu.

mi sangre es verdadera bebida. El que come mi carne y bebe mi sangre,
permanece en mí y yo en él. Como el Padre que vive me ha enviado y yo vivo
por el Padre, así también el que me come vivirá por mí. Este es el pan que ha
bajado del cielo. A diferencia de sus antepasados que comimos y aún muerto, el
que coma de este pan vivirá para siempre ".

Hechos 3:1-10
Pedro y Juan subían juntos al templo
a las tres de la tarde de la oración.
Y un hombre cojo de nacimiento se realizó
y se colocan en la puerta del templo llamada "la Puerta Hermosa"
todos los días a pedir limosna a la personas que entraron en el templo.
Cuando vio a Pedro ya Juan que iban a entrar en el templo,
se les pidió una limosna.
Pero Peter miró fijamente a él, al igual que Juan,
y le dijo: "Míranos."
Él se fijó en ellos, esperando recibir algo de ellos
Pedro dijo: "No tengo plata ni oro,
pero lo que tengo te doy:
en el nombre de Jesucristo de Nazaret, levántate y anda."
Entonces Pedro, tomándolo de la mano derecha y le despertó,
y luego fueron afirmados sus pies y tobillos se fortalecieron.
Se levantó de un salto, se levantó y caminó alrededor,
y entró en el templo con ellos
caminando, saltando y alabando a Dios.
Cuando todo el pueblo vio que el hombre andar y alabar a Dios,
lo reconocieron como el que acostumbraba pedir limosna sentado
en la puerta Hermosa del templo,
y se llenaron de asombro y asombro
por lo que había sucedido.
Salmo responsorial
Salmos 19:2-3, 4-5
R. (5) alcanza su pregón por toda la tierra.
Los cielos cuentan la gloria de Dios,
y el firmamento anuncia la obra de sus manos.
Día derrama la palabra a día,
y una noche a otra imparte conocimientos.
R. alcanza su pregón Por toda la tierra.
Ni una palabra, ni un discurso
cuya voz no se escucha,
a través de toda la tierra resuena su voz
y hasta los confines del mundo, su mensaje
R. alcanza su pregón por toda la tierra.

Gálatas 1:11-20
Quiero que sepan, hermanos,
que el evangelio anunciado por mí, no es de origen humano.
Porque yo no lo recibí de un ser humano, ni me fue enseñado,
pero llegó por revelación de Jesucristo. Para Has oído acerca de mi antigua
manera de vivir en el judaísmo, lo perseguí a la Iglesia de Dios sin medida y
trató de destruirla, y progresó en el judaísmo aventajaba a muchos de mis
contemporáneos en medio de mi carrera, desde que era aún más un fanático de
mis tradiciones ancestrales. Pero cuando Dios, que desde el vientre de mi madre
me apartó y me llamó por su gracia, tuvo a bien revelar a su Hijo en mí, para que
yo lo anunciara a los gentiles, no consulté de inmediato la carne y la sangre, ni
subí a Jerusalén a los que eran apóstoles antes que yo; bien, me fui a Arabia y
después regresé a Damasco Después, pasados tres años, subí a Jerusalén,
para hablar con Cefas y permanecí con él quince días, pero lo hice No ve ningún
otro de los apóstoles, sino a Jacobo el hermano del Señor. - En cuanto a lo que
yo escribo, he aquí delante de Dios, no estoy mintiendo.
Evangelio
San Juan 21:15-19
Jesús había revelado a sus discípulos
y, cuando habían acabado de desayunar, dijo a Simón Pedro:
"Simón, hijo de Juan, ¿me amas más que éstos?"
Simón Pedro le respondió: "Sí, Señor, tú sabes que te amo. "
Jesús le dijo: "Apacienta mis corderos."
Luego dijo a Simón Pedro por segunda vez:
"Simón, hijo de Juan, ¿me amas?"
Simón Pedro le respondió: "Sí, Señor, tú sabes que Te amo. "
Él le dijo: "Apacienta mis ovejas."
Le dijo la tercera vez:
"Simón, hijo de Juan, ¿me amas?"
Pedro se entristeció de que le había dicho por tercera vez,
"¿Me amas", y él le dijo:
"Señor, tú lo sabes todo; sabes que Te amo"
Jesús le dijo: "Apacienta mis ovejas.
verdad, en verdad os digo que, cuando se era más joven,
te vestías e ibas a donde querías;
pero cuando llegues a viejo, extenderás tus manos
y otro te ceñirá
. y te llevará a donde no quieras "
Lo dijo dando a entender qué muerte había de glorificar a Dios.
Y habiendo dicho esto, le dijo: "Sígueme".

Actos 12:1-11
En aquellos días, el rey Herodes echó mano a algunos miembros de la Iglesia de
hacerles daño.
Tenía James, el hermano de Juan, muerto por la espada,
y al ver que esto agradaba a los Judios
se procedió a prender también a Pedro.
-Era la fiesta de los Panes sin Levadura -.
Él le había detenido y encarcelado
bajo la custodia de cuatro escuadras de cuatro soldados cada uno.
Tenía la intención de llevarlo ante el pueblo después de la Pascua.
Peter lo estaba custodiado en la cárcel,
pero la oración de la Iglesia se está haciendo con fervor
a Dios en su nombre. La misma noche en que Herodes iba a hacerlo
comparecer, Pedro, garantizado por cadenas dobles, estaba durmiendo entre
dos soldados, mientras que fuera de los guardias de la puerta vigilaban la
prisión. De repente, el ángel del Señor vino sobre él y una luz resplandeció en la
celda. Tocó a Pedro en el costado, le despertó, diciendo: "Levántate pronto." Las
cadenas cayeron de las manos. El ángel le dijo: "Ponte el cinturón y las
sandalias" . Así lo hizo Luego le dijo: "Ponte el manto y sígueme." Así que lo
siguió, sin darse cuenta que lo que estaba ocurriendo a través del ángel era real;
pensó que veía una visión. Pasaron la primera guardia, luego el segundo, y
llegaron a la puerta de hierro que daba a la ciudad, la cual se les abrió por sí
misma. Salieron y caminaron por un callejón, y de pronto el ángel dejó él.
Entonces Pedro recuperó sus sentidos y le dijo: "Ahora entiendo
verdaderamente que el Señor ha enviado su ángel y me ha librado de las manos
de Herodes y de todo lo que el pueblo judío había estado esperando."
Salmo responsorial
Salmos 34:2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 8-9
R. (5) El ángel del Señor rescatar a los que le temen.
Bendeciré al Señor en todo momento,
su alabanza está siempre en mi boca.
Deja que mi alma la gloria de Jehová,
que los humildes lo escuchen y se contentos.
R. El ángel del Señor librará a los que le temen.
glorificar al Señor conmigo,
ensalcemos juntos su nombre.
Busqué al Señor, y él me respondió
y me libró de todos mis temores.
R. El ángel del Señor rescatará a los que le temen.
Mira a lo que puede ser radiante de alegría,
y sus rostros no pueden enrojecer de vergüenza.
Cuando el pobre llamó, oyó Jehová,
y de toda la angustia que lo salvó.
R. El ángel del Señor rescatará a los que le temen.
El ángel de Jehová acampa
alrededor de los que le temen, Y los defiende.
Gustad y ved qué bueno es el Señor,
dichoso el que se acoge a él.
R. El ángel del Señor rescatará a los que le temen.

2 Timoteo 4:6-8, 17-18
Yo, Pablo, ya estoy para ser derramado como una libación,
y el tiempo de mi partida está cercano.
he competido bien, he acabado la carrera,
he guardado la fe.
A partir de ahora la corona de justicia que me espera,
que el Señor, juez justo,
me premiará en aquel día, y no sólo a mí,
sino a todos los que aman su aspecto. El Señor me ayudó y me dio fuerzas,
para que por mí el anuncio podría ser completado y todos los gentiles oyesen. Y
fui librado de la boca del león. El Señor me librará de todo mal y traerá a salvo a
su reino celestial. A él sea gloria por los siglos de los siglos. Amen.
Evangelio
San Mateo 16:13-19
Cuando Jesús fue a la región de Cesarea de Filipo
, preguntó a sus discípulos:
"¿Quién dice la gente que es el Hijo del Hombre?"
Ellos respondieron: "Unos dicen que eres Juan el Bautista, otros que Elías,
otros que Jeremías o uno de los profetas. "
Él les dijo: "Y vosotros ¿quién decís que soy yo?"
, dijo Simón Pedro respondió:
"Tú eres el Cristo, el Hijo del Dios viviente."
Jesús le respondió: "Bienaventurado eres, Simón, hijo de Jonás.
Para carne y sangre no te ha revelado esto, sino mi Padre celestial.
Y por eso digo que tú eres Pedro,
y sobre esta piedra edificaré mi Iglesia,
y las puertas del infierno no prevalecerán contra ella.
Te daré las llaves del Reino de los cielos.
Todo lo que ates en la tierra quedará atado en los cielos;
y lo que desates en la tierra quedará desatado en los cielos."
