First reading - Ephesians 2:19-22
You are no longer aliens or foreign visitors: you are citizens like all the saints, and part of God’s household. You are part of a building that has the apostles and prophets for its foundations, and Christ Jesus himself for its main cornerstone. As every structure is aligned on him, all grow into one holy temple in the Lord; and you too, in him, are being built into a house where God lives, in the Spirit.

Responsorial Psalm - Psalm 18(19):2-5
 
Their word goes forth through all the earth.
 
The heavens proclaim the glory of God,
  and the firmament shows forth the work of his hands.
Day unto day takes up the story
  and night unto night makes known the message.
 
Their word goes forth through all the earth.
 
No speech, no word, no voice is heard
  yet their span extends through all the earth,
  their words to the utmost bounds of the world.
 
Their word goes forth through all the earth.
 

Gospel Acclamation - (Te Deum)
Alleluia, alleluia!
We praise you, O God,
we acknowledge you to be the Lord.
The glorious company of the apostles praise you, O Lord.
Alleluia!

Gospel - Luke 6:12-16
Jesus went out into the hills to pray; and he spent the whole night in prayer to God. When day came he summoned his disciples and picked out twelve of them; he called them ‘apostles’: Simon whom he called Peter, and his brother Andrew; James, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James son of Alphaeus, Simon called the Zealot, Judas son of James, and Judas Iscariot who became a traitor.

The Pope dealt with the theme of prayer in the homily at morning mass. "He is the intercessor, he who prays, and prays to God with us and before us. Jesus has saved us. He prayed this great prayer—his sacrifice, his life—to save us, to justify us: we are justified thanks to him. Now, he is gone and he prays. But is Jesus a spirit? Jesus is not a spirit! Jesus is a person. He is a man, with flesh like our own but in glory. Jesus has the wounds on his hands, on his feet, and on his side. And when he prays, he shows the Father the price of our justification. And he prays for us, as if saying: 'Father, may this not be lost!'
