  • First Reading: Acts of the Apostles 1:1-11

    1 The former treatise I made, O Theophilus, of all things which Jesus began to do and to teach,
    2 Until the day on which, giving commandments by the Holy Ghost to the apostles whom he had chosen, he was taken up.
    3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion, by many proofs, for forty days appearing to them, and speaking of the kingdom of God.
    4 And eating together with them, he commanded them, that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but should wait for the promise of the Father, which you have heard (saith he) by my mouth.
    5 For John indeed baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost, not many days hence.
    6 They therefore who were come together, asked him, saying: Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?
    7 But he said to them: It is not for you to know the times or moments, which the Father hath put in his own power:
    8 But you shall receive the power of the Holy Ghost coming upon you, and you shall be witnesses unto me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and even to the uttermost part of the earth.
    9 And when he had said these things, while they looked on, he was raised up: and a cloud received him out of their sight.
    10 And while they were beholding him going up to heaven, behold two men stood by them in white garments.
    11 Who also said: Ye men of Galilee, why stand you looking up to heaven? This Jesus who is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come, as you have seen him going into heaven.

  • Psalm: Psalms 47:2-3, 6-7, 8-9

    2 O clap your hands, all ye nations: shout unto God with the voice of Joy,
    3 For the Lord is high, terrible: a great king over all the earth.
    6 God is ascended with jubilee, and the Lord with the sound of trumpet.
    7 Sing praises to our God, sing ye: sing praises to our king, sing ye.
    8 For God is the king of all the earth: sing ye wisely.
    9 God shall reign over the nations: God sitteth on his holy throne.

  • Second Reading: Ephesians 1:17-23

    17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and of revelation, in the knowledge of him:
    18 The eyes of your heart enlightened, that you may know what the hope is of the glory of his inheritance in the saints.
    19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power towards us, who believe according to the operation of the might of his power,
    20 Which he wrought in Christ, raising him up from the dead, and setting him on his right hand in the heavenly places.
    21 Above all principality, and power, and virtue, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come.
    22 And he hath subjected all things under his feet, and hath made him head over all the church,
    23 Which is his body, and the fulness of him who is filled all in all.

  • Gospel: Mark 16:15-20

    15 And he said to them: Go ye into the whole world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
    16 He that believeth and is baptized, shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be condemned.
    17 And these signs shall follow them that believe: In my name they shall cast out devils: they shall speak with new tongues.
    18 They shall take up serpents; and if they shall drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them: they shall lay their hands upon the sick, and they shall recover.
    19 And the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God.
    20 But they going forth preached everywhere: the Lord working withal, and confirming the word with signs that followed.
