THE ASCENSION OF THE LORD (A) May 21 or 24, 2020

Acts 1: 1-11; Psalm 47; Ephesians 1: 17-23; Matthew 28: 16-20

Jude Siciliano, OP


Mini reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.


From today’s reading from the Acts of the Apostles


While meeting with the apostles,
Jesus enjoined them not to depart from Jerusalem
But to wait for
"The promise of the Father about which you heard me speak."


Reflection:


Jesus has gifted us with the same powerful Spirit that animated and sustained him, not only through his preaching and healing ministry, but through his long suffering and death. Thanks to the Spirit, we are called and empowered to be modern witnesses to the living Christ, who is reaching out in a new age to do through us, what he did in his lifetime–preach the gospel, heal the sick and bring people back to God.


So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • What gifts has God given me to use in the service of Jesus’ gospel?
    How am I exercising these gifts now?
