Preach the Gospel by the manner in which you live... So that your actions emerge from what you do believe.

Seventh Sunday of Easter – The Ascension of the Lord

Acts 1, 1-11; Ephesians 1, 17-23; Mt. 28, 19-20

Read: The Gospel ends on a glorious note. The eleven disciples are joined happily together and with Jesus at the summit of the mountain. Jesus has power over everything and sends out the disciples to continue his mission throughout the world. “and see, I am with you always, until the end of time”.

Reflect: What a splendid end to the Gospel! The Church is initiated by Jesus who then passes on his mission to the eleven. Everybody is invited to participate in that mission.

Pray: Pray for the evangelization of all peoples. Pray that the Gospel be made known from one end of the world to the other.

Act: Pronounce the Gospel by the manner in which you live. So that your actions emerge from what you do believe. Jesus rose from the dead, ascended to heaven and now entrusted you with his mission. Alleluia!
