Scripture

  • First Reading

     

    In the first book, Theophilus,
    I dealt with all that Jesus did and taught
    until the day he was taken up,
    after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit
    to the apostles whom he had chosen.
    He presented himself alive to them
    by many proofs after he had suffered,
    appearing to them during forty days
    and speaking about the kingdom of God.
    While meeting with them,
    he enjoined them not to depart from Jerusalem,
    but to wait for “the promise of the Father
    about which you have heard me speak;
    for John baptized with water,
    but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”

    When they had gathered together they asked him,
    “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?”
    He answered them, “It is not for you to know the times or seasons
    that the Father has established by his own authority.
    But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you,
    and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem,
    throughout Judea and Samaria,
    and to the ends of the earth.”
    When he had said this, as they were looking on,
    he was lifted up, and a cloud took him from their sight.
    While they were looking intently at the sky as he was going,
    suddenly two men dressed in white garments stood beside them.
    They said, “Men of Galilee,
    why are you standing there looking at the sky?
    This Jesus who has been taken up from you into heaven
    will return in the same way as you have seen him going into heaven.”

    ACTS 1:1-11

  • Second Reading

    Brothers and sisters:
    May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory,
    give you a Spirit of wisdom and revelation
    resulting in knowledge of him.
    May the eyes of your hearts be enlightened,
    that you may know what is the hope that belongs to his call,
    what are the riches of glory
    in his inheritance among the holy ones,
    and what is the surpassing greatness of his power
    for us who believe,
    in accord with the exercise of his great might,
    which he worked in Christ,
    raising him from the dead
    and seating him at his right hand in the heavens,
    far above every principality, authority, power, and dominion,
    and every name that is named
    not only in this age but also in the one to come.
    And he put all things beneath his feet
    and gave him as head over all things to the church,
    which is his body,
    the fullness of the one who fills all things in every way.

    EPH 1:17-23

  • Gospel

    The eleven disciples went to Galilee,
    to the mountain to which Jesus had ordered them.
    When they saw him, they worshiped, but they doubted.
    Then Jesus approached and said to them,
    “All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
    Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations,
    baptizing them in the name of the Father,
    and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,
    teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.
    And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.

    MT 28:16-20

    Hail the Day That Sees Him Rise
    LLLANFAIR

    Arranged by Trevor Thomson

     

    1. Hail the day that sees him rise, Alleluia!

    To his throne beyond the skies, Alleluia!

    Christ, the Lamb for sinners giv’n, Alleluia!

    Enters now the highest heav’n! Alleluia!

     

    2. There for him high triumph waits: Alleluia!

    Lift your heads, eternal gates; Alleluia!

    He has conquered death and sin; Alleluia!

    Take the King of glory in. Alleluia!

     

    3. Highest heav’n its Lord receives; Alleluia!

    Yet he loves the earth he leaves; Alleluia!

    Though returning to his throne, Alleluia!

    Still he calls the world his own. Alleluia!

    Alleluia! Alleuia!

    God Mounts His Throne to Shouts of Joy
    by Josh Blakesley


    Refrain
    God mounts his throne to shouts of joy:

    A blare of trumpets for the Lord.


    1. All you peoples, clap your hands,
    Shout to God with cries of gladness.
    For the Lord, the Most High, the awesome,
    Is the great king over all the earth.

     

    2. God mounts his throne amid shouts of joy;

    The Lord, amid trumpet blasts.

    Sing praise to God, sing praise;

    Sing praise to our king, sing praise.

     

    3. For king of all the earth is God;

    Sing hymns of praise.

    God reigns over the nations,

    God sits upon his holy throne.

  • Meditation: In Every Age

    In Every Age

    by Janèt Sullivan Whitaker

    1. Long before the mountains came to be

    And the land and sea and stars of the night,

    Through the endless seasons of all time,

    You have always been, you will always be.

     

    Refrain

    In every age, O God, you have been our refuge.

    In every age, O God, you have been our hope.

     

    2. Destiny is cast, and at your silent word

    We return to dust and scatter to the wind.

    A thousand years are like a single moment gone,

    As the light that fades at the end of day.

     

    Refrain

    In every age, O God, you have been our refuge.

    In every age, O God, you have been our hope.

     

    3. Teach us to make use of the time we have.

    Teach us to be patient even as we wait.

    Teach us to embrace our every joy and pain.

    To sleep peacefully, and to rise up strong.

     

    Final Refrain

    In every age, O God, you have been our refuge.

    In every age, O God, you have been our hope,

    You have been our refuge,

    You have been our hope.

    I Send You Out
    by John Angotti

    I send you out on a mission of love.

    I send you out on a mission of love,

    And know that I am with you always

    Until the end of the world.

     

    2. Well, it’s time for us to become people with spirit.

    It’s time for us to become people of love.

    It’s time for us to know that Jesus Christ is risen,

    Forgives our sins, and brings us new life!

     

    Refrain

    I send you out on a mission of love.

    I send you out on a mission of love.

    And know that I am with you always

    Until the end of the world.

Intercessions

General Intercessions: The Ascension of the Lord - May 24, 2020

For the Church – the Holy People of God:

For a spirit of gratitude for the teaching of Pope Francis in giving us Laudato Si, asking us to care for our common home, Mother Earth…

For openness to the gift of the Holy Spirit to help us during this time of reimagination in the life of our community…

For wisdom, courage, and understanding for our bishops who lead us and guide us on our journey of faith…

We pray

 

For the needs of our city, state, nation, and world: 

That we care for our common home these last months, a hurting world in need of healing…

That policy makers and politicians be guided with wisdom and knowledge as they make decisions that affect the common good of the human family…

That peace and calm would endure in our homes, with our families, with our friends, and in our neighborhoods…

We pray

For the needs of this gathered community, drawn from all corners of the earth…

For those who mourn victims and those suffering the effects of COVID-19 – the ill, the mourners, the unemployed, the small business owner, the pastor…

That the longing we have to return to the celebration in community of the Liturgy would remind us of the great gift of the Eucharist to our Church…

That our staff, task forces, ministry councils, and parish council have the gifts of the spirit in bringing about a renewed vision of the St. Monica Catholic Community…

We pray

 

For the first responders and health care workers in hospitals and clinics…

For the firemen of our city who were injured in the fire downtown this week…

For our relatives and those of us who serve in health care and essential services…

We pray


For those who have grown weak under the burden of years, those ill with COVID-19, and all who experience chronic pain and illness:

Esther Mercado, John Ocho, Ruth Proctor, George Heppting, Miguel Sanchez

We pray

 

For those who have gone before us marked with the sign of faith… for those who have died alone

Prayer for Spiritual Communion

My Jesus,

I believe you are really here in the Blessed Sacrament.

I love you more than anything in the world,

And I hunger to receive you.

But since I cannot receive Communion at this time,

Feed my soul at least spiritually.

I unite myself to you now,

As I do when I actually receive you in Holy Communion

Amen.

Good Works Never Cease

It's been eight weeks that we've been Safer@Home and gathered online to worship and pray together. Although our state and communities have begun to take small steps towards re-opening, we will continue to re-imagine and re-establish parish life—wherever we are. Your table is our table.

 

Together, we have:

  • gathered together for Mass online, still inviting lectors, musicians, and ministers to offer their gifts
  • brought you our Parish Mission Retreat and prayerful devotions online
  • established a response ministry to serve and assist those in our community with meal and grocery delivery
  • thanked frontline medical workers
  • ensured that the lights stay on and that internet is accessible for those who are struggling
  • hand-written notes, made hundreds of phone calls, and kept our ministries connected and engaged.

You make all of this good work possible. Half of our offertory gifts are usually collected in church through the Sunday basket. While we aren't able to pass the basket right now, we hope you will continue your offertory gifts through either a one-time gift -or- recurring giving. You may also click the 'Donate' button in the Livestream player. Your sustained gifts bring stability and peace of mind—as well as hope and comfort for those who need it most. Thank you!
