Seventh Week of Easter

Although the Disciples believed in Jesus, they would scatter when He faced Crucifixion. Jesus prayed for them! He also promised them Baptism with the Holy Spirit and power to continue His ministry. The Risen Lord asked Peter three times to confirm his love—the same number of times that Peter had fearfully denied knowing Jesus. After the Lord’s Ascension, two men in white asked why the Disciples continued to stand there, staring at the sky. Do we follow Jesus’ example of raising our eyes to heaven in prayer but also looking around to see what we can do on Earth?
