Feast of the Ascension of Our Lord
The Ascension of the Lord cannot be separated from His Resurrection and the Church celebrates this Feast with joy! Jesus has revealed His Father's love; He has shown us how great His love is for us that He laid down His life for us, and He has promised to send the Holy Spirit. Now we celebrate His return to His Father.
I am always grateful for the forty days after Easter, but more so this year, I guess, partly because I am keeping my gratitude journal each day and also because I was able to celebrate my 83rd birthday with the Mass of the Ascension on Saturday evening here in my community. That was a joy for me. May this year see us all growing in love.
