Saturday within the Octave of Easter
“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they wondered; and they recognized that they had been with Jesus. But seeing the man that had been healed standing beside them, they had nothing to say in opposition…‘But in order that it may spread no further among the people, let us warn them to speak no more to any one in this name.’…But Peter and John answered, ‘Whether it is right in the sight of God, you must judge; for we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard’”(Acts 4:13-14,17, 19-20).
