Bible Quotes from Acts of the Apostles

When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled, they were all in one place together. And suddenly there came from the sky a noise like a strong driving wind, and it filled the entire house in which they were. Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire, which parted and came to rest on each one of them. And they were all filled with the holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues, as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim.
2, 1-4

On the day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit descended with power upon the Apostles; thus began the mission of the Church in the world. Jesus himself prepared the Eleven for this mission, appearing to them on many occasions after his Resurrection. Prior to the Ascension into Heaven, he ordered them "not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the promise of the Father"; that is, he asked them to stay together to prepare themselves to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. And they gathered in prayer with Mary in the Upper Room, awaiting the promised event.

On Ascension Day, we commemorate the special journey of Jesus to heaven. His ascent fills our hearts with joy and hope, as he promised to always be with us.

On Ascension Day, the Son of God ascends to the heavens, to reign beside his Father. With majestic splendor, he rises above the earth, leaving his disciples in awe. A glorious day that elevates the faith of mankind to new heights.
On this day, Christ ascended high,
To the heavens, beyond our sky,
His earthly mission complete,
In glory, He takes His seat.

With open arms, He bids farewell,
To His disciples, who could tell,
That His love would never cease,
As they spread His message of peace.

In awe, they watched Him disappear,
But in their hearts, He would be near,
Christ's Ascension, a sacred sight,
Filling the world with eternal light.
Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy,
it does not boast,
it is not proud.
It does not dishonor others,
it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects,
always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.

a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
