Daily Gospel Reading for May 14, 2023 – Sixth Sunday of Easter Bible Verse

The 14th of May, 2023 is the Sixth Sunday of Easter. The Bible scriptures for the holy mass readings for this day came from the 2023 Liturgical Calendar.

Reading 1: ACTS 8:5-8, 14-17

The first reading from the Acts of the Apostles.

Philip went down to the city of Samaria and proclaimed to them the Christ.

The multitudes listened with one accord to the things that were spoken by Philip when they heard and saw the signs which he did.

For unclean spirits came out of many of those who had them. They came out, crying with a loud voice. Many who had been paralyzed and lame were healed.

There was great joy in that city.

Now when the apostles who were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent Peter and John to them, who, when they had come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Spirit; for as yet he had fallen on none of them. They had only been baptized in the name of Christ Jesus.

Then they laid their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.

Reading 2: 1 PT 3:15-18

The second reading from the Letter of Saint Peter.

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts. Always be ready to give an answer to everyone who asks you a reason concerning the hope that is in you, with humility and fear, having a good conscience. Thus, while you are spoken against as evildoers, they may be disappointed who curse your good way of life in Christ.

For it is better, if it is God’s will, that you suffer for doing what is right than for doing evil.

Because Christ also suffered for sins once, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring you to God, being put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the Spirit.

Gospel of the Day: JN 14:15-21

From the gospel verse according to John.

“If you love me, keep my commandments.

I will pray to the Father, and he will give you another Counselor, that he may be with you forever: the Spirit of truth, whom the world can’t receive, for it doesn’t see him and doesn’t know him. You know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.

I will not leave you orphans. I will come to you.

Yet a little while, and the world will see me no more; but you will see me. Because I live, you will live also.

In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.

One who has my commandments and keeps them, that person is one who loves me. One who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him, and will reveal myself to him.”
