Cantate (Easter 5)


Explanation of the Week

Though Jesus has departed from us visibly to the right hand of the Father who sent Him, yet this is to our advantage. For Jesus-who is Lord over all creation, who intercedes for us before the Father, who is preparing a place for us in heaven-has sent the Helper, the Spirit of Truth. (Jn 16:5-15) "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above and comes down from the Father of lights" through Christ. (James 1:16-21) The Holy Spirit helps us by taking of what is Christ's and declaring it to us. In the Word of truth the Spirit works repentance and delivers to us the forgiveness of sins, the righteousness of Christ, and victory over the devil. For the ruler of this world is judged and defeated by the cross. Through the ministry of the Holy Spirit we have been brought forth to new life in Him who is the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. Confident of our resurrection with Christ we confess, "Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid." (Is 12:1-6)

Deus qui fidelium mentes unius efficis voluntatis, da populis tuis id amare quod praecipis, id desiderare quod promittis, ut inter mundanas varietates, ibi nostra fixa sint corda, ubi vera sunt gaudia.

Epistle: Jas. 1:16-21


 16Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers. 17(A) Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from(B) the Father of lights(C) with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.[a] 18(D) Of his own will he(E) brought us forth by the word of truth,(F) that we should be a kind of(G) firstfruits of his creatures.

Hearing and Doing the Word

 19(H) Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person(I) be quick to hear,(J) slow to speak,(K) slow to anger; 20for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God. 21Therefore(L) put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with(M) meekness the implanted word,(N) which is able to save your souls.

Gospel: John 16:5-15


5But now(A) I am going to him who sent me, and(B) none of you asks me, 'Where are you going?' 6But because I have said these things to you,(C) sorrow has filled your heart. 7Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for(D) if I do not go away,(E) the Helper will not come to you. But(F) if(G) I go,(H) I will send him to you. 8(I) And when he comes, he will(J) convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: 9concerning sin,(K) because they do not believe in me; 10(L) concerning righteousness,(M) because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer; 11(N) concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world(O) is judged.

 12"I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13When(P) the Spirit of truth comes,(Q) he will(R) guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but(S) whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. 14He will(T) glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. 15(U) All that the Father has is mine;(V) therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.

Rescue the Weak and Needy

A Psalm of(A) Asaph.

 1(B) God(C) has taken his place in the divine council;
   in the midst of(D) the gods he(E) holds judgment: 2"How long will you judge unjustly
   and(F) show partiality to(G) the wicked?
                         Selah
3(H) Give justice to(I) the weak and the fatherless;
   (J) maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. 4(K) Rescue the weak and the needy;
   (L) deliver them from the hand of the wicked."

 5(M) They have neither knowledge nor understanding,
   (N) they walk about in darkness;
   (O) all the foundations of the earth are(P) shaken.

 6(Q) I said, "You are gods,
   sons of the Most High, all of you; 7nevertheless, like men(R) you shall die,
   and fall like any prince."[a]

Restore Our Fortunes, O LORD

A Song of(A) Ascents.

 1When the LORD(B) restored the fortunes of Zion,
   we were like those who(C) dream. 2Then our(D) mouth was filled with laughter,
   and our tongue with shouts of joy;then they said among the nations,
   (E) "The LORD has done great things for them." 3The LORD has done great things for us;
   we are glad.

 4Restore our fortunes, O LORD,
   like streams in the Negeb! 5(F) Those who sow in tears
   shall reap with shouts of joy! 6He who goes out weeping,
   bearing the seed for sowing,shall come home with shouts of joy,
   bringing his sheaves with him.

Woes to the Pharisees and Lawyers

 37While Jesus[a] was speaking,(A) a Pharisee asked him to dine with him, so he went in and reclined at table. 38The Pharisee was astonished to see(B) that he did not first wash before dinner. 39And the Lord said to him, (C) "Now you Pharisees cleanse the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside you are full of(D) greed and wickedness. 40(E) You fools!(F) Did not he who made the outside make the inside also? 41But(G) give as alms those things that are within, and behold,(H) everything is clean for you.

 42(I) "But woe to you Pharisees! For(J) you tithe mint and rue and every herb, and neglect(K) justice and(L) the love of God.(M) These you ought to have done, without neglecting the others. 43Woe to you Pharisees! For(N) you love the best seat in the synagogues and greetings in the marketplaces. 44Woe to you!(O) For you are like unmarked graves, and people walk over them without knowing it."

 45One of(P) the lawyers answered him, "Teacher, in saying these things you insult us also." 46And he said, "Woe to you(Q) lawyers also! For(R) you load people with burdens hard to bear, and you yourselves do not touch the burdens with one of your fingers. 47(S) Woe to you! For you build the tombs of the prophets whom your fathers killed. 48(T) So you are witnesses and you(U) consent to the deeds of(V) your fathers, for they killed them, and you build their tombs. 49Therefore also(W) the Wisdom of God said,(X) 'I will send them(Y) prophets and apostles,(Z) some of whom they will(AA) kill and persecute,' 50so that(AB) the blood of all the prophets, shed(AC) from the foundation of the world, may be(AD) charged against this generation, 51from the blood of(AE) Abel to the blood of(AF) Zechariah, who perished between(AG) the altar and the sanctuary. Yes, I tell you, it will be(AH) required of this generation. 52Woe to you(AI) lawyers!(AJ) For you have taken away the key of(AK) knowledge. You(AL) did not enter yourselves, and you hindered those who were entering."

 53As he went away from there, the scribes and the Pharisees began to press him hard and to provoke him to speak about many things, 54(AM) lying in wait for him,(AN) to catch him in something he might say.
