Ascension Thursday 2021
The dogma of the Faith that teaches that Our Lord ascended into heaven today was revealed to the apostles by the two angels as described in St. Luke’s Acts of the Apostles. On their return to Jerusalem they remained there as instructed to await the coming of the Holy Ghost. They gathered around the Blessed Mother in prayer and we imitate this first novena with our own starting this Friday. The Ascension is the third critical element to our spiritual life. Our Lord’s Death, Resurrection and Ascension are all essential in the plan of redemption. We must die with Christ so we can rise to life and go to heaven. The Ascension strengthens our faith and hope because our head is in heaven and we as members of His Mystical Body will be there one day.
