“The eleven disciples went to Galilee,  to the Mountain  which Jesus had ordered them.  When they saw Him,  they worshipped,  but they doubted.” (Matthew 28 : 16 – 20)  Their message to us is this,  throughout the time that we knew Him, Jesus,  we saw and heard many amazing things,  especially His Resurrection from the dead,  we were confused and unsure.  In the end,  they tell us,  we knew Him as King of Heaven and Earth.  You are witnesses of these things.  I am sending the promise of my Father upon you,  but stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.  Being clothed with power from on high is to fill the disciples with power to proclaim the Gospel message.  As Jesus ascends to Heaven the disciples are filled with joy in anticipation of this Heavenly gift.

Prayer May the Ascension of Our Lord be a sign of hope and joy in the Advent of the Holy Spirit. Amen
