The 15th of May, 2023 is Monday in the Sixth Week of Easter. The Holy Bible verses for the mass readings for this day came from the Liturgical Calendar Year 2023.

Reading 1: ACTS 16:11-15

The first reading from the Acts of the Apostles.

Setting sail therefore from Troas, we made a straight course to Samothrace, and the day following to Neapolis; and from there to Philippi, which is a city of Macedonia, the foremost of the district, a Roman colony. We were staying some days in this city.

On the Sabbath day we went outside of the city by a riverside, where we supposed there was a place of prayer, and we sat down and spoke to the women who had come together.

A certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, one who worshiped God, heard us. The Lord opened her heart to listen to the things which were spoken by Paul.

When she and her household were baptized, she begged us, saying, “If you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house and stay.” So she persuaded us.

Gospel of the Day: JN 15:26-16:4A

From the gospel scripture according to John.

“When the Counselor has come, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will testify about me.

You will also testify, because you have been with me from the beginning.”

“I have said these things to you so that you wouldn’t be caused to stumble.

They will put you out of the synagogues. Yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he offers service to God.

They will do these things because they have not known the Father nor me.

But I have told you these things so that when the time comes, you may remember that I told you about them.”
