Feast of Saint Saint Simon Stock (16 May 2014)

We continue to celebrate the season of Christ=s resurrection. As he leaps out of the tomb alive, triumphant, victorious, happy to have accomplished our redemption, his great joy is to have opened the gates of heaven for us. The other day I saw a striking cartoon in one of our Catholic papers. It showed our late Pope John Paul II, just arrived at the gates of heaven, kneeling down, as he did for years during his travels, to kiss the ground—or, in this case, the clouds—as he prepares to enter the eternal kingdom of God.

Shortly before his ascension into heaven, Our Lord told his Apostles and us: I am going to prepare a place for you. When we plan to have dinner in a nice restaurant, we call ahead to make reservations. The restaurant staff takes our names, consult their seating chart, and prepare a place for us at the proper time. Jesus is in heaven, making happy preparations for us when we shall end our life on earth. We don=t know when that will be, but he knows it to the very instant. Thank you for seeking God’s truth, God Bless you, Father Victor Brown, O.P.
