Message of the day

"The final moment in Jesus’ life"

"Once more the liturgy reminds us of the final moment in Jesus’ life among men, his ascension into heaven." (Christ is Passing By, 117)

It has always seemed logical to me that the most holy humanity of Christ should ascend to the glory of the Father. The ascension has always made me very happy. But I think that the sadness that is particular to the day of the ascension is also a proof of the love that we feel for Jesus Christ, our Lord. He is God made man, perfect man, with flesh like ours, with blood like ours in his veins. Yet he leaves us and goes up to heaven. How can we help but miss his presence? Christ is Passing By...
