The Ascension of the Lord- Working with the Lord


All of our efforts of evangelization are WITH the Lord, or else they will be futile.  The Gospel today reminds us that after Jesus ascended into heaven, He remained with those who follow Him, working with them and confirming their message of truth with accompanying signs.  The same is true for us today.  Jesus continues to bestow abundant graces on those who follow Him, pouring out manifold blessings from the Holy Spirit to individuals who are then able to speak words of comfort and healing to the distressed, pray for those in need, and counsel those who are lost.  We are a people blessed with grace.  It is time to use the gifts and graces we have been given to lead souls to the kingdom of heaven.  Pray for the grace to know your God-given gifts today and to utilize them as God wills.
