The Ascension of Our Lord 

The Resurrection and the Ascension are one continuous movement. Jesus rose from the dead to ascend to his Father. We are caught up in that same movement - raised in baptism to enter one day into full consciousness of the presence of our Father in heaven. Whilst here on earth we know only by faith that God, the Blessed Trinity, has already established an intimate relationship with each one of us. We are one with God as Jesus is one with the Father. We already share God’s life.  I was walking in Poulton on Monday, watching people going to and fro, browsing in the market, intent on their shopping,  and the presence of God seemed so remote from the trivialities of ordinary human life  that you may put to yourself the question - Is it a fairy story? It is just as wonderful as any fairy story and it is only when you reflect on the solid basis of our faith that however wonderful it may be, it is the reality; it is the true account of what we are and what we are called to be.

This faith of ours is built on the mission given by Our Lord to the Apostles: “Go out to the whole world, proclaim the good news to all creation”. That mission didn’t end with the death of the last apostle. It is a mission given to the Church. It is therefore our mission today. Pope Francis has declared a Jubilee Year of Mercy to begin on the feast of the Immaculate Conception, Dec. 8th, this year.  We are to express the loving mercy of God who really hugs us to himself. We may not have the words but if we have faith in God’s presence in our lives and his plan for our future happiness then our basic optimism should be evident   - and attractive to others. That is how we will proclaim the good news - that is how we may fulfill our mission.
