  21. FIRST READING Acts 1:1-11CEV Jesus' ascension, promise and commission R: The first Reading for The Ascension of our Lord is written in Chapter 1 of Acts, beginning at Verse 1.

  22. acts 1:1-11 Theophilus, I first wrote to you about all that Jesus did and taught from the very first 2until he was taken up to heaven. But before he was taken up, he gave orders to the apostles he had chosen with the help of the Holy Spirit. 

  23. acts 1:1-11 3For forty days after Jesus had suffered and died, he proved in many ways that he had been raised from death. He appeared to his apostles and spoke to them about God's kingdom.

  24. acts 1:1-11 4While he was still with them, he said: Don't leave Jerusalem yet. Wait here for the Father to give you the Holy Spirit, just as I told you he has promised to do. 5John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.

  25. acts 1:1-11 6While the apostles were still with Jesus, they asked him, "Lord, are you now going to give Israel its own king again?" 7Jesus said to them, "You don't need to know the time of those events that only the Father controls.

  26. acts 1:1-11 8But the Holy Spirit will come upon you and give you power. Then you will tell everyone about me in Jerusalem, in all Judea, in Samaria, and everywhere in the world.”

  27. acts 1:1-11 9After Jesus had said this and while they were watching, he was taken up into a cloud. They could not see him, 10but as he went up, they kept looking up into the sky. Suddenly two men dressed in white clothes were standing there beside them.

  28. acts 1:1-11 11They said, "Why are you men from Galilee standing here and looking up into the sky? Jesus has been taken to heaven. But he will come back in the same way that you have seen him go."  This is the Word of the Lord. C: Thanks be to God.

  29. Psalm 47 CEV R: The Psalm is Psalm 47 1All of you nations, clap your hands and shout joyful praises to God.   C: 2The LORD Most High is fearsome, the ruler of all the earth.  

  30. Psalm 47 CEV R:3God has put every nation under our power,   C: 4and he chose for us the land that was the pride of Jacob, his favorite. R:5God goes up to his throne, as people shout and trumpets blast.  

  31. Psalm 47 CEV C: 6Sing praises to God our King, 7the ruler of all the earth! Praise God with songs. R: 8God rules the nations from his sacred throne.  

  32. Psalm 47 CEV C: 9Their leaders come together and are now the people of Abraham's God. All rulers on earth surrender their weapons, and God is greatly praised!  C: Glory to the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit; As it was in the beginning is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

  34. Ephesians 1:15-23 15I have heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all of God's people.16So I never stop being grateful for you, as I mention you in my prayers. 17I ask the glorious Father and God of our Lord Jesus Christ to give you his Spirit. The Spirit will make you wise and let you understand what it means to know God.

  35. Ephesians 1:15-23 18My prayer is that light will flood your hearts and that you will understand the hope that was given to you when God chose you. Then you will discover the glorious blessings that will be yours together with all of God's people. 

  36. Ephesians 1:15-23 19I want you to know about the great and mighty power that God has for us followers. It is the same wonderful power he used 20when he raised Christ from death and let him sit at his right side in heaven. 21There Christ rules over all forces, authorities, powers, and rulers. He rules over all beings in this world and will rule in the future world as well.

  37. Ephesians 1:15-23 22God has put all things under the power of Christ, and for the good of the church he has made him the head of everything. 23The church is Christ's body and is filled with Christ who completely fills everything.  This is the Word of the Lord. C: Thanks be to God.

  38. GOSPEL Luke 24:44-53CEV Jesus commissions and blesses the disciples M: The Holy Gospel is written in Chapter 24 of the Gospel according to St Luke, beginning at Verse 44 C: Glory to you, O Lord.

  39. Luke 24:44-53 44Jesus said to His disciples, "While I was still with you, I told you that everything written about me in the Law of Moses, the Books of the Prophets, and in the Psalms had to happen.”

  40. Luke 24:44-53 45Then he helped them understand the Scriptures. 46He told them: The Scriptures say that the Messiah must suffer, then three days later he will rise from death. 47They also say that all people of every nation must be told in my name to turn to God, in order to be forgiven.

  41. Luke 24:44-53 So beginning in Jerusalem, 48you must tell everything that has happened. 49I will send you the one my Father has promised, but you must stay in the city until you are given power from heaven.

  42. Luke 24:44-53 50Jesus led his disciples out to Bethany, where he raised his hands and blessed them. 51As he was doing this, he left and was taken up to heaven.

  43. Luke 24:44-53 52After his disciples had worshiped him, they returned to Jerusalem and were very happy. 53They spent their time in the temple, praising God. This is the Gospel of the Lord. C: Praise to you, O Christ.

  44. Luke 24:44-53 52After his disciples had worshiped him, they returned to Jerusalem and were very happy. 53They spent their time in the temple, praising God. This is the Gospel of the Lord. C: Praise to you, O Christ.
