Completion Of Easter

Ascension Thursday 2019
Today is a Holyday of Obligation because of the importance of Our Lord’s return to heaven forty days after His Resurrection.  The Son of God descended, became a Man, suffered, died, rose again and ascended to His Father.  Today completes this Paschal mystery.  Prayer is essential, especially during these days leading up to Pentecost.  Our Lord told the disciples to remain in Jerusalem until He sent the Advocate.  They gathered with the Blessed Mother and prayed for His Coming.  God will reward our prayers too.
