FIFTH SUNDAY OF EASTER
After  Paul  and  Barnabas  had  proclaimed  the  good  news
to  that  city  and  made  a  considerable  number  of  disciples
they  returned  to  Lystra  and  to  Iconium  and  to  Antioch.
They strengthened the spirits of the disciples and exhorted them to persevere
in the faith, saying, “It is necessary for us to undergo many hardships to enter
the kingdom of God.” They appointed elders for them in each church and,
with  prayer  and  fasting,  commended  them  to  the  Lord
in whom they had put their faith. Then they traveled through Pisidia and
reached Pamphylia. After proclaiming the word at Perga they went down to
Attalia. From there they sailed to Antioch, where they had been commended
to the grace of God for the work they had now accomplished.
And when they arrived, they called the church together and reported what
God had done with them and how he had opened the door of faith to the
Gentiles.
