FEAST OF THE ASCENSION
He was lifted-up while they looked on
Jesus returns to the home of the Father. The Age of the Spirit draws near. The birth of the Church is imminent. As He slips beyond the clouds, we get a glimpse of our final destination. His leaving is not abandonment but rather, the ultimate act of faith in us. D’imigh Sé romhainn; níor imigh Sé uainn. His mission is now in our hands, flawed as we are. This is a feast that speaks of the constant rhythm of beginnings and endings, points to our destiny and amazes us at the prodigal trust of the Saviour in the potential of His brothers and sisters
