Cycle C: Gospel Video, The Ascension of the Lord

Hi! Welcome to Holy Heroes Gospel Videos. I’m Lillian, one of your Guides. Today is the Ascension of the Lord. Today’s Gospel is from Luke Chapter 24, Verses 46-53. Jesus said to His disciples: “Thus it is written that the Christ would suffer and rise from the dead on the third day and that repentance, for the forgiveness of sins would be preached in His name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. And behold I am sending the promise of My Father upon you; but stay in this city until you are clothed with power from on high.” Then He led them out as far as Bethany, raised His hands and blessed them. As He blessed them, He parted from them and was taken up to Heaven. They did Him homage and then returned to Jerusalem with great joy, and they were continually in the temple praising God. In this week’s Gospel, we hear about Jesus and His Ascension into Heaven. It is also the Second Glorious Mystery of the Rosary. Jesus tells His disciples to preach His name to all the nations. This week, be a bold witness of Jesus’ love to everyone you meet. Maybe you could help younger sibling, or do an extra chore for your Mom and Dad. Bye, see you next time!
