SEVENTH SUNDAY OF EASTER B  Lectionary #60

The texts for this Sunday may be replaced in certain U.S. ecclesiastical provinces by the texts for the Solemnity of the Ascension. The truth of the Gospel is rooted in the apostolic witness to the historical life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.

Acts 1:15-17, 20a, 20c-26. The sign of the Twelve as an expression of the Church’s understanding of itself as the new Israel must be preserved. Matthias is elected to replace Judas, so the symbol will remain complete.

Psalm of the Day: Ps (102) 103
An individual thanksgiving, probably sung after recovery from serious illness.

See suggestions for Ascension.

1 John 4:11-16. God dwells in us; we express this faith by our love for one another.

John 17:11b-19. Part of the “high priestly prayer” of Jesus for the Church. The reference to the “son of destruction” shows the link with the first reading. Jesus prays that his followers will live in the world as exiles, consecrated to the truth.
