I go to Him

Jesus ascends to heaven

Therefore Jesus said, “For a little while longer I am with you, then I go to Him who sent Me. (John 7:33)

This Sunday (17 May 2015) is the Feast of the Ascension of our Lord Jesus into heaven.  The celebration of this feast gives us meaning to journey onwards throughout the day, challenged to keep our gaze intently upon Jesus.

A few years ago we had a Marian monthly initiative to go every Sunday to visit a Church or Sanctuary dedicated to Mary so we visited and participated in the Holy Eucharist at the Our Lady of Peace Shrine, a place where we experienced a great silence, and a prayerful atmosphere, despite the noise that surrounded the building which was situated in an open place in Edsa, in busy metropolitan Manila.  It was a privilege to be with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, and recall when He spoke those words of comfort and promise: “Courage! I will be with you always until the end of time.” (Matthew 28:20), just like on the day of His Ascension to His disciples.
