Fr. Tim's homily for The Ascension of the Lord (May 12)
The feast that we have gathered to celebrate today, that of the Ascension of the Lord, is one that is probably very hard for most of us to understand. We probably don’t give much thought to the Ascension. If we happen to, maybe when we are reflecting upon the Second Glorious Mystery of the Rosary, we might have wild ideas about this mystical and historical event. We might even get hung up on the “how” did the Ascension happen, as opposed to probing deeper on the more important question of the “why” – why did the Ascension happen. The Acts of the Apostles simply states that “he was lifted up, and a cloud took him from their sight” (Acts 1: 9b). Then two mysterious men, dressed in white appear, just like at the empty tomb on Easter, and they tell the disciples not to be concerned about the mechanics of what just happened, the “how” but rather to start reflecting on the “why”…
