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!
