Jesus' Disciples Received the Holy Spirit

On the evening of that first day of the week, when the doors were locked, where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst and said to them, “Peace be with you.” When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord. Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.” And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained.”

The Ascension of Jesus

The eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had ordered them. When they saw him, they worshiped, but they doubted. Then Jesus approached and said to them, “All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”

If You Love Jesus

Jesus said to his disciples: “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate to be with you always, the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot accept, because it neither sees nor knows him. But you know him, because he remains with you, and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. In a little while the world will no longer see me, but you will see me, because I live and you will live. On that day you will realize that I am in my Father and you are in me and I in you. Whoever has my commandments and observes them is the one who loves me. And whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and reveal myself to him.”

Who is Jesus?

Jesus said to his disciples: “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in me. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If there were not, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and take you to myself, so that where I am you also may be. Where I am going you know the way.”

Thomas said to him, “Master, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way?”

Jesus said to him, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you know me, then you will also know my Father. From now on you do know him and have seen him.”

Philip said to him, “Master, show us the Father, and that will be enough for us.”Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you for so long a time and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on my own. The Father who dwells in me is doing his works. Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or else, believe because of the works themselves. Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever believes in me will do the works that I do, and will do greater ones than these, because I am going to the Father.”

Jesus is the Good Shepherd

Jesus said: “Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever does not enter a sheepfold through the gate but climbs over elsewhere is a thief and a robber. But whoever enters through the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. The gatekeeper opens it for him, and the sheep hear his voice, as the shepherd calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has driven out all his own, he walks ahead of them, and the sheep follow him, because they recognize his voice. But they will not follow a stranger; they will run away from him, because they do not recognize the voice of strangers.”

Although Jesus used this figure of speech, the Pharisees did not realize what he was trying to tell them. So Jesus said again, “Amen, amen, I say to you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. I am the gate. Whoever enters through me will be saved, and will come in and go out and find pasture. A thief comes only to steal and slaughter and destroy; I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly.”

Jesus on the Road to Emmaus

That very day, the first day of the week, two of Jesus’ disciples were going to a village seven miles from Jerusalem called Emmaus, and they were conversing about all the things that had occurred. And it happened that while they were conversing and debating, Jesus himself drew near and walked with them, but their eyes were prevented from recognizing him. He asked them, “What are you discussing as you walk along?” They stopped, looking downcast. One of them, named Cleopas, said to him in reply, “Are you the only visitor to Jerusalem who does not know of the things that have taken place there in these days?” And he replied to them, “What sort of things?” They said to him, “The things that happened to Jesus the Nazarene, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people, how our chief priests and rulers both handed him over to a sentence of death and crucified him. But we were hoping that he would be the one to redeem Israel; and besides all this, it is now the third day since this took place. Some women from our group, however, have astounded us: they were at the tomb early in the morning and did not find his body; they came back and reported that they had indeed seen a vision of angels who announced that he was alive. Then some of those with us went to the tomb and found things just as the women had described, but him they did not see.” And he said to them, “Oh, how foolish you are! How slow of heart to believe all that the prophets spoke! Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into his glory?” Then beginning with Moses and all the prophets, he interpreted to them what referred to him in all the Scriptures. As they approached the village to which they were going, he gave the impression that he was going on farther. But they urged him, “Stay with us, for it is nearly evening and the day is almost over.” So he went in to stay with them. And it happened that, while he was with them at table, he took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them. With that their eyes were opened and they recognized him, but he vanished from their sight. Then they said to each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he spoke to us on the way and opened the Scriptures to us?” So they set out at once and returned to Jerusalem where they found gathered together the eleven and those with them who were saying, “The Lord has truly been raised and has appeared to Simon!” Then the two recounted what had taken place on the way and how he was made known to them in the breaking of bread.

Jesus Strengthens the Faith of Thomas

On the evening of that first day of the week, when the doors were locked, where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst and said to them, “Peace be with you.” When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord. Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.” And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained.”

Thomas, called Didymus, one of the Twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. So the other disciples said to him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them,“Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands and put my finger into the nailmarks and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”

Now a week later his disciples were again inside and Thomas was with them. Jesus came, although the doors were locked, and stood in their midst and said, “Peace be with you.” Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and see my hands, and bring your hand and put it into my side, and do not be unbelieving, but believe.” Thomas answered and said to him, “My Lord and my God!” Jesus said to him, “Have you come to believe because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.”

Now, Jesus did many other signs in the presence of his disciples that are not written in this book. But these are written that you may come to believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that through this belief you may have life in his name.

Jesus Rises from the Dead

On the first day of the week, Mary of Magdala came to the tomb early in the morning, while it was still dark, and saw the stone removed from the tomb. So she ran and went to Simon Peter and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and told them, “They have taken the Lord from the tomb, and we don’t know where they put him.”

So Peter and the other disciple went out and came to the tomb. They both ran, but the other disciple ran faster than Peter and arrived at the tomb first; he bent down and saw the burial cloths there, but did not go in.

When Simon Peter arrived after him, he went into the tomb and saw the burial cloths there, and the cloth that had covered his head, not with the burial cloths but rolled up in a separate place.

Then the other disciple also went in, the one who had arrived at the tomb first, and he saw and believed. For they did not yet understand the Scripture that he had to rise from the dead.

Overview

Living the Eucharistic Day / Sống Ngày Thánh Thể

The Eucharistic Day

The Eucharistic Day is a day lived in which Jesus is the Sun, the center of the day.

  • The Eucharistic Day begins with Day Offering in the Morning (Morning Offering).
  • The summit of the Eucharistic Day is Holy Mass and Holy Communion.
  • The hours of the Eucharistic Day are marked with Eucharistic Adoration/Visitation, (The Holy Hour), Short Prayers, Spiritual Communion, Sacrifice, Apostolic Works, Bible Reading, Holy Rosary, Station of the Cross, Divine Mercy, the Angelus
  • The Eucharistic Day ends with the spiritual bouquet and Day Offering at Night (Night Offering).

I. MORNING OFFERING Jesus is the Sunrise: opening a new horizon ~With this first act, we offer every moment of the day to God, no moment is lost or wasted

1) Thank God for the gift of waking up and for keeping you safe       

2) Consecrate and offer your day to God

  • By this first act, we offer every moment of the day to God, no moment lost or wasted

3) Set the tone for the whole day

  • Letting God in ahead of time this way, before the day gets tough, is a great thing to do if we remember to do it; the whole day would be for the Lord!
  • Change yourself each day to become the best gift to God.      
  • Start with the first sacrifice: Get out of bed…do not be lazy!

II. HOLY MASS AND HOLY COMMUNION Jesus is the Sun at noon: the center of life ~The most perfect act we can participate in every day


Mass

  • The Mass gives us the greatest graces, blessings and favors, spiritual and temporal - graces that we could not possibly receive in any other way
  • The most perfect act we can participate in every day.
  • Participating in Mass allows us to unite the offering of our lives to God, day by day, in the same way that Jesus offered his life to the Father.


Holy communion (Actual Communion and Spiritual Communion)

  • Eucharist is a “mystery to be believed, celebrated, and then lived.”
  • Other sacraments are signs of grace. In Holy Communion, we receive the source of all grace--Jesus Himself.
  • Let your own heart united with the Sacred Heart of Jesus, be blessed, broken, and given away freely in daily life.
  • Let the Eucharist sink into your heart and deepen your experience and your love. Great privilege to have Jesus to be with us, inside us, and be part of us, so He can slowly draw us and transform us to become like Him

Helpful Prayers:

III. NIGHT OFFERING  At sunset: let Jesus in the Eucharist settle in our heart ~Examen the day, see the insights, and improve tomorrow


1) Examination of Conscience

  • In making the Examen, we recall each day lived with God, precisely because Jesus has lived the same day with his heart opened up to each one of us.
  • Ignatius’ Steps for Examen:
  • Rest in God’s presence for a few moments
  • Give thanks
  • Ask for light from the Holy Spirit
  • Review the events of your day
  • Repent for harm done
  • Ask for help tomorrow


2) Act of Contrition 

  • Contrition means more than just being sorry for the sins of the past; it means working hard to avoid those and other sins in the future
  • There are two types of contrition:
  • Imperfect - where our sorrow comes more out of fear of God’s punishments
  • Perfect - where we are truly sorry for our sins out of our love for God


3) Spiritual Bouquet offered to God

  • Fill in treasure sheet or write in your spiritual journal that helps you reflect on what you did today


4) Prepare for Tomorrow

  • Review the day, see the insights, and improve tomorrow

Helpful Prayers:

  • Act of Contrition Prayer - 5
  • Night Offering Prayer - 6
