Readings for the Week
May 24 - 31, 2020
Readings for Sunday, May 24:

Acts 1:12-14:
  After the Ascension , the apostles returned to pray in the upper room at Jerusalem.. Mary and some other women were with them. They prayed continuously for nine days.

1 Pt 4:13-16:  We should rejoice in sharing in the suffering of Jesus; for this we should not be ashamed. Beware,
however, not to violate the rights of others.

Jn 17:1-11a:  Jesus prays to His Father noting that the work given Him is finished. The Father is known on
earth. Jesus prays for His apostles to whom He entrusted the "good news" of salvation.

Today's Message:  Jesus, having completed the work of His Father, speaks of returning to Him and of being
glorified. As we share in His glory, so too do we share in Christ's suffering. We have nothing to fear, however,
since the Lord is our refuge. In His name do we gather, attentive to the Spirit.
