Friends of the Rosary,

Today, the Seventh Sunday of Easter, we celebrate, in most of the country, the Solemnity of the Ascension of Our Lord Jesus Christ. We also celebrate Mother’s Day.

The ecclesiastical provinces of Boston, Hartford, New York, Newark, Philadelphia, and the State of Nebraska retained the celebration of the Ascension of the Lord last Thursday, while all other provinces have transferred this solemnity to today.

At the end of His earthly life, and forty days after His resurrection, Jesus ascended triumphantly into heaven.

Through the faith, we know that physical death is not the end. It is rather the real beginning.

The Ascension of Lord Christ in his human nature to his Father’s and our Father’s home is the confirmation that we will all rise with new, glorified bodies, ascending into heaven, as Christ did. There we’ll begin our true life of eternal joy.

Even for good Christians the death of a beloved one is a cause of sorrow and tears. Death breaks that continuity but only for a little while. However, that break is necessary for the new life to begin, as death on earth is the door to that eternal life. We all want to live on forever with our dear ones!

Come, Holy Spirit, come!

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!

To Jesus through Mary!
