The Ascension of The Lord (Year A) – 25th May 2017

Theme: THE LORD ASCENDS INTO HEAVEN; WHERE HE GOES WE  HOPE TO FOLLOW

  • Acts 1: 1-11
  • Psalm 46: 2-3. 6-9. R. v. 6
  • Ephesians 1:17-23
  • Matthew 28: 16-20

Today we celebrate the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord into heaven! The readings today tell us that the Lord ascends into heaven, to be seated at the right hand of the Father, to send down the Holy Spirit to us, to continue his work until the end of time, when all of us will ascend into heaven with him body and soul!

The first reading tells us that the Lord ascends into heaven! More importantly, the second reading tells us that he is seated at the right hand of God the Father in power to rule the whole universe! And most importantly, the first reading also tells us that he will send us his Holy Spirit, to continue his work on earth, until the end of time, when we will all ascend into heaven with him, body and soul! And indeed, the gospel reading tells us that he sends us out into the whole world to baptize in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit! Amen!

This is the Good News! A Happy Ascension Day to all of you!   Amen!
