Ask and you shall receive.
Livro dos Atos dos Apóstolos.
1st Reading - At 18,23-28
23 Paulo remained some time in Antioch. Then left again, covering successively the regions of Galatia and Phrygia, strengthening all the disciples. 24 came to Ephesus a Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria. It was an eloquent man, well versed in the Scriptures. 25 Outside instructed in the way of the Lord, and with much enthusiasm, he spoke and taught accurately about Jesus, although she knew only the baptism of John. 26 Then, he started talking with a lot of conviction in synagogue. To listen to him, Priscilla and Aquila took on and, with more accuracy, showed him the way of God. 27 As he was trying to pass for Achaia, the brothers supported him and wrote to the disciples to the host as well. By the grace of God, the presence of Apollo there has been very helpful to the faithful. 28 in fact, he dismissed the complainant vigorously the Jews in public, showing by the Scriptures that Jesus is the Messiah.
Evangelho - Jo 16,23b-28
Naquele tempo, disse Jesus aos seus discípulos:
Gospel - Jo 16,23b-28
At that time, Jesus said to his disciples:
23B "Verily, verily I say unto you, if ye shall ask the Father anything in my name, he will give you. 24 so far nothing asked in my name; ask, and ye shall receive; so that your joy may be complete. 25 Said these things to you in figurative language. Comes the time when you talk in figures, but clearly you talk about the Father. 26 in that day ye shall ask in my name, and not tell you that I will ask the Father for you, 27 for the Father himself loves you, because you loved me and believe that I came from God. 28 I came out from the father and have come into the world; and again I am world and go to the Father ".
