Seventh Sunday of Easter

Introduction

In these days between Ascension and Pentecost, we gather with the disciples in the upper room, waiting for the Spirit to transform the church around the world. In today’s gospel Jesus prays for his followers and for their mission in his name. Amid religious, social, and economic divisions, we seek the unity that Jesus had with his Father. Made one in baptism, we go forth to live our faith in the world, eager for the unity that God intends for the whole human family.

Readings and Psalm

Acts 1:6-14  Jesus’ companions at prayer after his departure
Psalm 68:1-10, 32-35  Sing to God, who rides upon the clouds. (Ps. 68:4)
1 Peter 4:12-14; 5:6-11  God will sustain and restore those who suffer
John 17:1-11  Christ’s prayer for his disciples
