Sunday, May 2: Vespers of the 4th Sunday after Easter

Jesus bids farewell to the disciples

Hebdomadary: Rev. Fr. Raymond Philip Napuli

As the paschal season comes to an end, we hear how the resurrected Lord bids farewell to His disciples. These are understandably sad, hearing how the God-man will soon leave them to return to the Father, from Whom He was generated before all ages. But Our Savior assures them that their sadness will soon turn into joy, when they receive the Holy Spirit on Pentecost. As the disciples had to renounce the bodily visits of Our Lord, so our relationship with God cannot be based on what simply gratifies our senses. Rather, reborn in Christ through baptism, we need to grow a heart that seeks only what is pleasing to God and where the Holy Spirit may come to dwell. Experience all this through Vespers in Gregorian chant.

Come to the outdoor chapel of JP Catholic and celebrate with us St. Joseph, who had the singular privilege of defending the Holy Family from the attacks of the enemy. A great feast like this has two Vespers services, the first on the evening of the preceding day, and the second on the evening of the day itself. We will sing  First Vespers of St. Joseph, the spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary and foster-father of Our Lord, God, and Savior Jesus Christ.
