The Solemnity of the Ascension of Our Lord

May 21, 2012

CHRISTMAS IN THE SUMMER MONTHS

The Ascension is most closely related, in meaning, to Christmas, for both are incarnational.

In the words of Thomas Merton, To become more holy is to become more, not less, human.

The experience, the reality, and the stuff of being a person are so valuable that God has made it a part of God’s life.

The Ascension is our yearly reminder to move beyond our traditional Western dualistic notions.  It is our challenge to see the holiness in ALL things – even the things that we believe to be unholy, un-Catholic, and un-Godly.
