The Author

"FAITH BOOK" offers Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run.  "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

7th SUNDAY OF EASTER (A) MAY 28, 2017

Acts 1: 12-14; Psalm 27; I Peter 4: 13-16; John 17: 1-11a


From today’s Gospel reading:

[Jesus prayed]

And now I am no longer in the world,

but they are in the world, while I am coming to you.


On our own we disciples are not going to be able to further Jesus’ work in the world. But we are not be on our own. Next week we celebrate Pentecost, Jesus’ promised gift to us of the Spirit. The fulfillment of that promise will make all the difference for us, charged and sent by Jesus to spread the gospel by our words and actions.

So we ask ourselves:

  • Where in my life do I need a renewal by the Holy Spirit?
  • To prepare for Pentecost shall I begin praying for that renewal?
