SEASONS OF THE CHURCH YEAR
EASTER SEASON: THE RESURRECTION OF OUR LORD
EASTER SEASON begins with the Resurrection of our Lord and ends with Pentecost.
The Church Year is divided into Festivals beginning with Christmas, which includes 4 Sundays in Advent and Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. This is followed by Epiphany Season which begins with the Epiphany of Our Lord and ends 9 Sundays later with the Transfiguration of Our Lord. The Time of Easter follows beginning with Lent, followed by Holy Week starting with Palm Sunday and concludes with Good Friday. Easter Season begins with the Resurrection of Our Lord and includes the Ascension of Our Lord and ends with Pentecost.
The first Pentecost took place on the 50th day after Easter Sunday when the disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit, enabling them to testify boldly to spread the Good News of the Gospel.

THE SEVENTH SUNDAY OF EASTER
The Gospel reading for the seventh Sunday of Easter May 21, 2023 is from John 17:1-11 (ESV)
1 When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you,
2 since you have given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him.
3 And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.
4 I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do.
5 And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed.
6 “I have manifested your name to the people whom you gave me out of the world. Yours they were, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word.
7 Now they know that everything that you have given me is from you.
8 For I have given them the words that you gave me, and they have received them and have come to know in truth that I came from you; and they have believed that you sent me.
9 I am praying for them. I am not praying for the world but for those whom you have given me, for they are yours.
10 All mine are yours, and yours are mine, and I am glorified in them.
11 And I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them in your name, which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are one.
