The Holy Spirit - the third Person of the Trinity - descended upon the disciples and empowered them to proclaim the Good News of Christ.  With the power of the Spirit these disciples will change the world.

Here are two powerful ways the Spirit helps us:

  • To find our path and direction - giving us guidance
  • To provide power and strength - to carry out our tasks

The Spirit continues to work through us today - guiding and empowering us to live our lives for the Lord.  Come Holy Spirit!

There are times in life when we need to say goodbye - letting go of familiar things and embracing new opportunities and challenges.  Transitions are difficult, yet they are a common way we grow.

The Feast of the Ascension reminds us that the disciples faced their transition as the Lord was lifted up to Heaven.  We, too, are called to step out and undertake the opportunities and challenges that the Lord sets before us, embracing our transitions so that the Lord can stretch and transform us!

God commands us to love, both the Lord and one another.  Love is a way we live - a verb that calls us to actions.  3 thoughts:

  • Where in my life is it hard to love?  Name it!
  • What's my part in that?  Own it!
  • Call on the Lord for grace to love.  Ask for it!

Stones are the bones of the earth.  They may or may not be attractive, but when they are shaped and formed they can become powerful - capable of supporting tremendous weight.

Our hearts can do the same.  When we shape and form our hearts - working together with those around us - we become a living temple that gives glory to God.  In our unity we become strong, united in the Lord's love for service in the world.

Jesus is not only the shepherd who calls us, he is the gate that protects and guards. When our our lives on earth are finished, the Lord will not only call us - but he will be at the gate.  Will we be ready to greet him?  Do we have any unfinished business that needs to be addressed?  If so, then perhaps today offers the opportunity for us to attend to our hearts.

Christ's greeting "Peace be with you!" in the Gospel teaches us about the Lord's longing for us:

  • Serenity is a part of God's desire for us
  • Many things attempt to steal that peace from us

We hunger and long for peace...we need it!  And to understand peace, there are two distinct components to look for:

  • What - the thing itself, which is our goal and objective 
  • How - the way we live and act

Both are crucial for an authentic expression of the Lord's peace, and both are required if we will live the Peace of Christ in our hearts.

The resurrection of Jesus Christ on Easter Day transforms the hearts of the disciples.  Formerly afraid and timid, they will now boldly go out into the world - facing terrible fears - proclaiming the Good News with joy.  

The power of the resurrection continues through our lives today.  We embrace the examples of the apostles and continue the mission of Christ.  

This is Easter power!  Filled with hope and joy!
