Mass Readings: http://www.usccb.org/bible/readings/060219-ascension.cfm
Our Lord has been taken up to heaven. As He was man among us and gave us many examples to follow. Him going to heaven is the ultimate example in that we are all wanting this same course; to dwell in the House of the Lord forever.
Then he led them out as far as Bethany,Luke 24:50-51
raised his hands, and blessed them.
As he blessed them he parted from them
and was taken up to heaven.
As mentioned in the scriptures last Sunday, we learn of the presence of the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, that now resides with us while we wait for the second coming of our Heavenly Father. Let us remember the momentous occasion with His Ascension each week when we recite the creed during Mass.
…He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end…
Let these words continue to inspire us and keep us focused as we prepare for these last few days of the Easter season.
- “Why are you standing there looking at the sky?” Where have you been looking for Jesus in your life?
- What places are “the ends of the earth” for you? What people are the most difficult for you to contemplate witnessing the love of Jesus to?
- In what areas of your life are you in need to “power from on high” in order to persevere and be successful?
- Where and when did your spiritual journey begin? Where is the journey taking you now?
