Daily Gospel Reading for May 22, 2021 – Saturday in the Seventh Week of Easter Bible Verse

The 22nd of May, 2021 is Saturday in the Seventh Week of Easter. The Bible scriptures for the holy mass readings for this day came from the 2021 Liturgical Calendar.

Reading 1: ACTS 28:16-20, 30-31

The first reading from the Acts of the Apostles.

When we entered into Rome, the centurion delivered the prisoners to the captain of the guard, but Paul was allowed to stay by himself with the soldier who guarded him.

After three days Paul called together those who were the leaders of the Jews. When they had come together, he said to them, “I, brothers, though I had done nothing against the people or the customs of our fathers, still was delivered prisoner from Jerusalem into the hands of the Romans, who, when they had examined me, desired to set me free, because there was no cause of death in me.

But when the Jews spoke against it, I was constrained to appeal to Caesar, not that I had anything about which to accuse my nation.

For this cause therefore I asked to see you and to speak with you. For because of the hope of Israel I am bound with this chain.”

Paul stayed two whole years in his own rented house and received all who were coming to him, preaching God’s Kingdom and teaching the things concerning the Lord Jesus Christ with all boldness, without hindrance.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 11:4, 5 and 7

Response: The upright shall see his face.

Yahweh is in his holy temple. Yahweh is on his throne in heaven. His eyes observe. His eyes examine the children of men.

R: The upright shall see his face.

Yahweh examines the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and him who loves violence.

For Yahweh is righteous. He loves righteousness. The upright shall see his face.

R: The upright shall see his face.

Gospel of the Day: JN 21:20-25

From the gospel scripture according to John.

Then Peter, turning around, saw a disciple following. This was the disciple whom Jesus loved, the one who had also leaned on Jesus’ breast at the supper and asked, “Lord, who is going to betray you?”

Peter, seeing him, said to Jesus, “Lord, what about this man?”

Jesus said to him, “If I desire that he stay until I come, what is that to you? You follow me.”

This saying therefore went out among the brothers that this disciple wouldn’t die. Yet Jesus didn’t say to him that he wouldn’t die, but, “If I desire that he stay until I come, what is that to you?”

This is the disciple who testifies about these things, and wrote these things. We know that his witness is true.

There are also many other things which Jesus did, which if they would all be written, I suppose that even the world itself wouldn’t have room for the books that would be written.
