First Reading:   Acts 9:1-6 [7-20]

Each of us has a story of meeting God’s grace. Saul (later called Paul) was an ardent persecutor of all who followed the Way of Christ. This reading recounts the story of his transformation, beginning with an encounter with Jesus Christ on the way to Damascus.

Second Reading:   Revelation 5:11-14

The vision of John recorded in Revelations offers a glimpse of cosmic worship on the Lord’s Day. At its center is “the Lamb who was slain.”

Gospel:   John 21:1-19

The risen Christ appears again to his disciples by the sea where they were first called. After echoes of the fishing and feeding miracles, he gives a final reminder of the cost of a disciple’s love and obedience.
