The Ascension or Seventh Sunday of Easter

Christ is in heaven, seated at the right hand of the Father, interceding for us.

He is the way: he is both our destination and the road by which we travel. We can be with him by being like him. 

We who are on the earth-side of this way can say to him,

  • I’ll do my part.
  • I’ll talk to you in prayer.
  • I’ll worship you in the Mass.
  • I will receive you in the Eucharist.
  • I will struggle every day to do your will, including living the moral life you demand, and go to Confession to deal with my failures.
  • I will try to be like you, going about doing good (Acts 10:38).
