The Easter season is almost over. This week finds us celebrating Ascension Thursday and the coming weekend brings us to the Seventh Sunday of Easter. (UNLESS you live in a diocese where the Ascension is transferred each year to the Sunday before Pentecost - the 7th of Eastertide.)
Scriptures for the 7th Sunday of Easter and for Ascension are here, along with commentary on them. If you're bringing children to Mass with you, hints for helping them to prepare to hear the Word can be found here.
The readings for the Seventh Sunday of Easter are relatively brief and simple. The readings for the Ascension are appropriate to the feast celebrated. Whatever your local church may be celebrating, take some time to sit with the day's scriptures and let them begin to percolate within you so that come Sunday, your ears and mind and heart will be all the more open to what the Lord will speak to you.
