CHRIST CALLS US TO COME CLOSER TO HIM:
After forty days of being with the disciples after his Resurrection, which we have celebrated during these forty days of the Easter season, Jesus has crossed into Heaven to take his place at the Father’s right hand, as the prophecies foretold for the Messiah. The Father has crowned him with the glory he merited by his Passion, Death, and Resurrection, and in turn, he is eternally asking the Father for each of us–by name–to receive the graces we need to join him one day in eternity and to help others get there too. The Lord’s Ascension is just as important for the Church as his Incarnation, Passion, Death, and Resurrection.
CHRIST’S LOVE IMPELS US TO GO OUT:
In a little over a week, he’ll impart again the gift of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.The Holy Spirit is right around the corner. Ask the Spirit to help you recall the blessings you’ve received in these days. And see how we can bring the fruits into our lives and the lives around us. The fruits of the Holy Spirit are: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, forbearance, gentleness, faith, modesty, self-control, and chastity.Ask the Holy Spirit to inspire you to practice one of these virtues.
