Fifth Sunday after Easter
Vocem jucunditatis annuntiate, et audiatur, alleluia: annuntiate usque ad extremum terrae: liberavit Dominus populum suum, alleluia, alleluia. * Jubilate Deo, omnis terra, psalmum dicite nomini ejus: date gloriam laudi ejus.
Declare it with the voice of joy, and make it known, alleluia : declare it even to the ends of the earth : The Lord hath delivered His people, alleluia, alleluia. * Shout with joy to God, all the earth, sing ye a psalm to His name: give glory to His praise.
(Isaias 48:20 and Psalm 65:1-2 from the Introit of Mass)
Deus, a quo bona cuncta procedunt, largire supplicibus tuis: ut cogitemus, te inspirante, quae recta sunt; et, te gubernante, eadem faciamus.
O God, from whom all good things do proceed, grant unto Thy humble servants, that by Thy holy inspiration, we may think those things that are right, and under Thy merciful guidance may perform the same.
Continuation of the holy Gospel according to St. John.
At that time Jesus saith to His disciples: Amen, amen, I say to you: If you ask the Father any thing in My name, He will give it you. Hitherto you have not asked any thing in My name: Ask, and you shall receive, that your joy may be full. These things I have spoken to you in proverbs. The hour cometh when I will no more speak to you in proverbs, but will show you plainly of the Father. In that day you shall ask in My name: and I say not to you that I will ask the Father for you: for the Father Himself loveth you, because you have loved Me and have believed that I came out from God. I came forth from the Father and am come into the world: again I leave the world and I go to the Father. His disciples say to Him: Behold, now Thou speakest plainly and speakest no proverb. Now we know that Thou knowest all things and Thou needest not that any man should ask Thee: by this we believe that Thou earnest forth from God.
