‘Gospel Truth’ for June 2, 2019

We bring you the Gospel reading for June 2, 2019 which speaks of Jesus ascending into heaven.

In this week's edition of "Gospel Truth", we bring you the Gospel reading from the Gospel of St. Luke 24:46-53.

Listen to our Sunday Gospel

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 the 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.
