Feast of Saint William Arnaud/Solemnity of the Ascension (29 May 2014)

Our uncertainty about the future is a heavy cross for some of us. We get that feeling by what the apostles say to Jesus who continues to speak about leaving them. But the more we have faith, the more we have trust in Our Lord, the less we are worried about the future. The same Christ who is with us today will be with us tomorrow also.

This is what we used to call Ascension Thursday; now, however, in most of the dioceses of the United States, we celebrate the Ascension next Sunday. Again, it’s like dying. We seem to lose those who have died, and we feel that we have died, too, in that loss. But the ascension of Our Lord into heaven is the beginning of his heaven in his human nature, and the pledge of ours if we remain united with him. It really isn’t dying at all; it’s being born to the world for which God created us.  Thank you for seeking God’s truth, God Bless you, Father Victor Brown, O.P.
