Week of Sunday, May 6
Six Sunday of Easter, Ascension of Our Lord
In this week’s gospel the risen Christ ascends into heaven and his followers are assured that the Spirit will empower them to be witnesses throughout the earth. The disciples were told to not gaze up into heaven to look for Jesus; we find his presence among us as we proclaim the word and share the Easter feast. We too long for the Spirit to enliven our faith and invigorate our mission.
Readings and Psalms
Jesus sends the apostles
God has gone up with a shout. (Ps. 47:5)
