Daily Gospel Reading for April 23, 2022 – Saturday in the Octave of Easter Bible Verse

The 23rd of April, 2022 is Saturday in the Octave of Easter. The Holy Bible verses for the mass readings for this day came from the Liturgical Calendar Year 2022.

Reading 1: ACTS 4:13-21

The first reading from the Acts of the Apostles.

Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and had perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled. They recognized that they had been with Jesus.

Seeing the man who was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it.

But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves, saying, “What shall we do to these men? Because indeed a notable miracle has been done through them, as can be plainly seen by all who dwell in Jerusalem, and we can’t deny it.

But so that this spreads no further among the people, let’s threaten them, that from now on they don’t speak to anyone in this name.”

They called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus.

But Peter and John answered them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you rather than to God, judge for yourselves, for we can’t help telling the things which we saw and heard.”

When they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding no way to punish them, because of the people; for everyone glorified God for that which was done.

Gospel of the Day: MK 16:9-15

From the gospel scripture according to Mark.

Now when he had risen early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom he had cast out seven demons.

She went and told those who had been with him, as they mourned and wept.

When they heard that he was alive and had been seen by her, they disbelieved.

After these things he was revealed in another form to two of them as they walked, on their way into the country.

They went away and told it to the rest. They didn’t believe them, either.

Afterward he was revealed to the eleven themselves as they sat at the table; and he rebuked them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they didn’t believe those who had seen him after he had risen.

He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to the whole creation.”
