Seventh Sunday of Easter
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 flood of Christ's forgiveness, and receive the gift of life forever with all the saints.
Prayer of the Day
O God, form the minds of your faithful people into your one will.Make us love what you command and desire what you promise, that, amid all the changes of this world, our hearts may be fixed where true joy is found,your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
