Happy Mother's Day and Feast of the Ascension! Sister Katherine Jean has the following passage to share with us:
Once Jesus was out of sight, an angel said to them, “Why do you stand looking up to heaven?” With that the apostles returned to Jerusalem “in joy”—such a striking reaction from those who had walked and eaten with Jesus, spent three years listening to him and would now see him no more. This feast calls us to reflect on our own attitude in living the Gospel. May we do so with ever-increasing joy.
