Liturgical day: Ascension (C)

Gospel text (Lk 24,46-53): Jesus said to his disciples: «You see what was written: the Messiah had to suffer and on the third day rise from the dead. Then repentance and forgiveness in his name would be proclaimed to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem. Now you shall be witnesses to this. And this is why I will send you what my Father promised. So remain in the city until you are invested with power from above».

Jesus led them almost as far as Bethany; then He lifted up his hands and blessed them. And as He blessed them, He withdrew (and was taken to heaven. They worshiped him). They returned to Jerusalem full of joy and were continually in the Temple praising God.
