Dear Friends in Christ:

The Acts of the Apostles begins with the Ascension of the Lord to the right hand of the Father’s throne in heaven. Luke described the scene of Jesus being lifted up, “a cloud took him from their sight.” (Acts 1.1-11) The lingering, longing look of the disciples’ gaze fixed on the sky revealed their sense of loss. Their master had seemingly left them behind. As they stared up at the sky, two angels came to chastise the gloomy group. “Men of Galilee, why are you standing there looking at the sky?” The followers of Jesus were reminded that the Lord Jesus would return. With these words of encouragement, the disciples returned to Jerusalem. The scripture tells us, “All these devoted themselves with one accord to prayer, together with some women, and Mary the mother of Jesus.” (Acts. 1.14)

Mis queridos amigos en Cristo:

El libro de los Hechos de los Apóstoles comienza con la Ascensión del Señor a la derecha del trono celestial del Padre.  Lucas habla del momento cuando Jesús fue elevado al cielo, “una nube lo ocultó a sus ojos.” (Hch. 1.1-11)  La larga, ansiosa mirada de los discípulos fijada en el cielo nos habla de su sentir de haber sido abandonados.  Les pareció que el Señor les hubiera dejado atrás. Mientras los seguidores de Jesús contemplaban al cielo, dos ángeles les acercaron para recordarles que el Cristo volvería.  Con este consuelo, los discípulos regresaron a Jerusalén.  La escritura nos dice, “Todos ellos perseveraban juntos en la oración en compañía de algunas mujeres, y de María, la madre de Jesús". (Hch. 1.14)
