Scripture Reflection for Ascension Sunday
Posted on 15. May, 2012
“Go and tell the Good News!”
Spiritually, we are billionaires. We have the limitless beauty and fruitfulness of God’s creation. We have his own Son, sent among us, making us his own address, his real presence in our world. We have his Spirit pouring out all in God’s heart on us. And we have each other. Life is really a gift with endless promise.
Christ hopes we will allow ourselves be saturated with the energy of His Resurrection and truly become Easter People. Then we will stop looking up to the heavens and hear about the earth about us. We may even have the courage to listen to today’s gospel reading: “Go out and tell all!”
You have a gift the world hungers for. Our hungers are good. They are the best persuaders. They drive us to seek nourishment. The nourishment is there. Share it. Risk telling people the joy you have in Christ and in all He offers, in the word that gives direction, in the bread for our health.
