SIXTH SUNDAY OF EASTER
Then they laid hands on them
Let all the earth cry out to God with joy. (Ps 66) or Alleluia
For Christ also suffered for sins once,
“I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. In a little while the world will no longer see me, but you will see me, because I live and you will live.” (Jn 14:18-19)

OBSERVANCES FOR THE WEEK OF MAY 17, 2020:
In Acts 2, Luke records how the Holy Spirit initially descended upon the Jewish believers in Jerusalem. In today’s reading, we hear how the Holy Spirit also descended upon the Samaritans who believed in Jesus. What lesson do you think Luke is conveying to us?
Peter advocates for being prepared to defend the faith, even in the face of danger. How does one find the courage to defend the faith in a hostile environment?
Jesus reveals to his disciples that the intimacy between himself, the Holy Spirit, and the Father can be shared with fellow believers. How do you experience the intimacy of our triune God?
