    Posted on May 23, 2020 by Msgr. Charles Pope Love Lifted Me: A Homily for the Ascension of the Lord In more dioceses than not, the Feast of the Ascension is celebrated this Sunday. The liturgist in me regrets the move from Thursday, but here we are any way. LetÂ’s ascend with the Lord, three days late!This marvelous feast is not merely about something that took place two thousand years ago, for though Christ our head has ascended, we the members of His body are ascending with Him. Because He was ascended, we, too, have ascended. In my own...

    May 24 2020 The Ascension of the Lord Reading 1 Acts 1:1-11 In the first book, Theophilus, I dealt with all that Jesus did and taught until the day he was taken up, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles whom he had chosen. He presented himself alive to them by many proofs after he had suffered, appearing to them during forty days and speaking about the kingdom of God. While meeting with them, he enjoined them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for “the promise of the Father about which you have heard...

    “Ascended and Still Present” (Acts 1:1-11; Ephesians 1:15-23) Where is Jesus, and what is he doing? That’s a good question to ask on this Ascension Day. Where did Jesus go when he ascended, and what is he doing now? Alright, you say, I know the answer to that; we just confessed it in the Creed: “He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.” OK, fine, but what’s the big deal about that? Is that enough to have a whole special festival service, to come out and have church on a Thursday? Well, I...
  • Bishop Barron's Daily Reflection - The Ultimate Authority

    Word on Fire Ministry | 4-25-2020 | Bishop Robert Barron
    Feast of St. Mark MARK 16:15-20 Friends, today’s Gospel gives us Mark’s very laconic account of the Ascension: "So then the Lord Jesus, after he spoke to them, was taken up into heaven and took his seat at the right hand of God." We should think of it as Jesus’ going to his heavenly place in order to reign over the earth. Now, don’t literalize this language—there aren’t chairs in heaven—but take it very seriously indeed. What Mark is suggesting is that Jesus is now reigning; he’s in the attitude of a king on his throne. This means that he...

    “Ascension Joy” (Luke 24:44-53)How did you feel about going to church this evening? Were you happy and excited? If you were happy, were you more excited about the service or the ice cream social afterward? C’mon, admit it! No, seriously, did coming to an Ascension service tonight spark joy for you? Or were you instead a little grumpy about having to go to church on a Thursday night? Did you focus on the joy of being able to be in the presence of God, to hear his Word and receive the blessed Sacrament? Or did you complain about one more...

    How Christ’s Ascension is to Be Manifested in Us Msgr. Charles Pope • May 13, 2018 • “Noli Me Tangere,” Giotto (1304-06)There is an interaction between Jesus and Mary Magdalene, recounted in John’s Gospel, teaching that Christ’s ascension is about more than just His going up to Heaven. In this, His ascension is like all of His actions: they are not just for Him but also for us.As Christ ascends, we are called to ascend in at least two ways:The event with Mary Magdalene takes place early in the morning on the day of His resurrection. Mary recognizes the...

Noble indeed is man; but nobler far...
