The Ascension (2012)

A blessed Feast of the Ascension to all who celebrate it this day.

Christ ascended in glory, granting joy to all of us, His disciples.

“‘To see heaven open’:

 … these four words signify the very mystery of Christ, of the Christian faith and hope.  

‘For we have the certainty that heaven, which opened three times in the unfolding of the mystery of salvation, remains henceforth open forever.  Nothing and no one can reconstruct the barrier that the sin of the first man erected between God and man.  No one can excavate again the abyss which Jesus has filled between heaven and earth.'”  

(Maxime Egger in THE COMPASSION OF THE FATHER, p 32)
