WHAT THE ASCENSION MEANS TO US

Liturgical Colour: 

What does the feast day of the Ascension mean to you? Before answering this question we need to consider what it meant to Jesus?

Briefly we can say that our heavenly Father created this beautiful world and our first parents. He gave them every happiness and He wanted them to love Him in return. Instead they spurned His love and lost Heaven for themselves and their descendants. But God showed mercy to them. He promised to send them one of their own kind, born of a woman, who would restore them to His love.

Mk. 16:15-20

‘What does this feast day mean to us?’ Before asking this you have to answer the question ‘What did this day mean to Jesus?’

Our heavenly Father created this beautiful world and our first parents. He gave them every happiness and He wanted them to love Him in return. Instead they spurned His love and lost Heaven for themselves and their descendants. But God showed mercy, promising to send one of their own kind, born of a woman, who would restore them to His love.
