The Ascension

The AscensionToday was the feast of the Ascension of our Blessed Lord Jesus into Heaven (yes, our diocese changed it from Thursday to Sunday). This wonderfully blessed event took place in order that our Lord might send us His most Holy Spirit to be our advocate before Him. We will celebrate Pentecost next Sunday, so this whole week is a great time to really meditate with Our Lady on the Glorious Mysteries, our need for the Holy Spirit and our hope for the coming of the Lord.

When they had gathered together they asked him, “Lord, are you at this time going 4 to restore the kingdom to Israel?” He answered them, “It is not for you to know the times or seasons that the Father has established by his own authority. But you will receive power when the holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” When he had said this, as they were looking on, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him from their sight. While they were looking intently at the sky as he was going, suddenly two men dressed in white garments stood beside them. They said, “Men of Galilee, why are you standing there looking at the sky? This Jesus who has been taken up from you into heaven will return in the same way as you have seen him going into heaven.”
~Acts 1:6-11

Also, if you’re following, today was the third day of the Holy Spirit Novena.

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of the faithful and enkindle them with the fire of your Divine Love, send forth your Spirit and they shall be created and Thou shall renew the face of the earth!
