FEASTING ON THE WORD
"If you meditate on the Scriptures it will appear to you in its brilliant splendor." ―St. Pio of Pietrelcina
The Ascension of the Lord (C)
Acts 1:1-11 | Psalm 47:2-3, 6-7, 8-9 | Ephesians 1:17-23 | Luke 24:46-53
Today is the 40th day since Easter. The Easter story and the story of salvation are approaching their climax. What does the Ascension of Jesus Christ mean to all of us? First, Ascension guides us to capture the vision of our Lord. Secondly, it directs us to pray for wisdom and revelation. Finally, it commands us to take up God's work on earth.
Sixth Sunday of Easter (C)
Acts 15:1-2, 22-29 | Psalm 67:2-3, 5, 6, 8 | Revelation 21:10-14, 22-23 | John 14:23-29
We have arrived at the sixth Sunday of Easter and continue to bask in the glow of the story of the growth of the early Church in Acts, the vision of heaven from the book of Revelation, and the consolation of Jesus' words to the Apostles in the upper room from the Gospel of John.
Fourth Sunday of Easter (C)
Acts 13:14, 43-52 | Psalm 100:1-2, 3, 5 | Revelation 7:9, 14B-17 | John 10:27-30
We are in the fourth Sunday since the joy of Easter commonly known as “Good Shepherd Sunday” and is also known as The World Day of Prayer for Vocations.
