Reach Out to Him
This weekend we celebrate the Feast of the Ascension!
We call to mind that even though Jesus is no longer physically with us on this earth, He is with us in so many powerful ways spiritually. We can think of his presence in the Word of God, which we hear proclaimed at every Mass. We can also think of his presence in the Sacraments of the Church, especially in the Eucharist which we also celebrate at every Mass!
The Feast of the Ascension reminds us of how close Jesus wants to be to us as his disciples. Let’s always reach out to Him because of His great love for us!
There are so many ways we can now be the presence of Jesus on this earth. Of course, it begins with family and friends, but let’s not forget the many ways we can be more involved in our faith and parish.
May this Feast of the Ascension remind us of how close the Love of Jesus truly is to each one of us!
And let us continue to pray for one another.
