Sometimes I feel bad saying this, but Ascension has become my favorite feast. I still appreciate Pascha for what it is. However, what would Pascha be without the Ascension? Have you ever considered that? Christ’s Ascension completes his earthly ministry.
Also, at the Ascension of Jesus Christ we receive our marching orders. For the previous three years Jesus taught us how to make disciples, by being a servant in the name of the Lord. Now we are called to do the same.
It’s time to love God and our neighbor.
