Seventh Sunday of Easter — May 8, 2016

It is possible to hear in Jesus’ high priestly prayer, a prayer he offered shortly before his death, the petitions of the ascended Lord for his own throughout history—to our day—and beyond. Jesus prays for us. In Holy Baptism we become believers in God, have our robes washed in the blood of Christ’s forgiveness, and receive the gift of life forever with all the saints.

Readings this week: Acts 16:16-34; Psalm 97; Revelation 22:12-14, 16, 17, 20, 21; John 17:20-26
