Today we celebrate the Ascension of the Lord, that moment when our Lord Jesus Christ ascended into heaven to be seated at the right hand of the Father, where he intercedes for us as the Sovereign Lord of the cosmos, as the one mediator between God and men (1 Tim 2:5).
Ascension of the Lord
Go Into The Whole World And Proclaim The Gospel To Every Creature
Bearing witness to Christ and his Church is the primary mission of the Christian disciple. Pope St. John Paul II noted that intentional and regular participation in the salvific mission of Christ constitutes the deepest level of conversion in a person.
Reflection: “Go Into The Whole World And Proclaim The Gospel To Every Creature”
It is so unfortunate that so many fail to look for and embrace the beauty of the Catholic Church Christ so wisely and lovingly established in the midst of the world. Many trudge through each day, their heart aching for happiness, their intellect craving that Truth for which there are no words to describe.
