May 21 – Seventh Sunday of Easter & Ascension – Is it time?
On the day of his ascension, Jesus leaves his disciples with a commission, a blessing, and a promise of the Holy Spirit. 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 (Acts 1:11); 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.
Acts 1:1-11 and Luke 24:44-53
