LESSON. Acts i. 7. 11.


Made a former treatise, O Theophilus, of all those things, which Jesus began to do and teach, to the day in which he was taken up into heaven, after he had, thro' the Holy Ghost, given his commands to the Apostles,

whom he had chosen.* To whom he also shewed himself alive after his passion, by many proofs, appearing to them for forty days, and speaking of the kingdom of God. And, eating with them, he commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait the promise of the father, which you have heard saith he, from my mouth: for John indeed baptized in water; but you, in a few days time, shall be baptized in the Holy Ghost. Then they, who were present, asked him, saying: Lord, is it now thou wilt restore the kingdom to Israel. But he said to them: 'Tis not for you to know the times or seasons, which the Father hath reserved to his own power: but you shall receive the power of the Holy Ghost coming upon you, and you shall be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and even to the outermost parts of the earth. And having spoke thus, he was taken up into heaven, while they were looking on; and a cloud took him out of their sight. And as they continued to look after him going up into heaven, behold two men stood by them clothed in white, who also said: Ye men of Galilee, why stand you looking up towards heaven: This Jesus, who is taken up from you into heaven, will come again in the same manner, as you have seen him go into heaven.

Mark xvi. 14.


T that time: Jesus appeared to the eleven as they were at table and he upbraided them with their incredulity and hardness of heart, because they believed not those who had seen him after he was risen again. And he said to them: Go all over the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature, He that believeth, and is baptized, shall be saved; but he, that believeth not shall be condemned. And these miracles shall accompany them that believe: in my name they shall cast out Devils; they shall speak new tongues; they shall take up my serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay their hands on the sick, and

they shall recover. And after the Lord Jesus Christ had spoken thus to them, he was taken up into heaven, and sitting on the right hand of God. And they going away, preaching every where, the Lord co-operating with them, and confirming their words with miracles that followed them. CREedo.

dearly beloved: Be prudent, and watchful in prayer. But above all things keep up a mutual and uninterrupted charity towards one another; for charity covereth a multitude of sins.* Exercise hospitality to one another without murmuring. Let every one, as he hath received grace, so minister the same one to another, like good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If any one speak, let him speak as the words of God: if any one serve in the ministry, let him serve therein as acting by the power God hath given him: that God may be honored in all, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
