SUNDAY AFTER ASCENSION-DAY.
St. John, xv. 26 TO END; AND XVI. 1-4.
When the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me. And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning. These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. They shall put you out of the synagogue : yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. But these things have I told you, that, when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. Four days ago our church celebrated the Ascension of our Lord. That was a great and glorious moment when the Saviour, having finished the work which He came on earth to accomplish, returned once more to His resting-place in heaven.
