Ascension Thursday

Here in the U.S. we celebrate the Feast of the Ascension on Sunday. Nonetheless, I still see Thursday listed as an option on the USCCB website, and our Psalters still show the Ascension as a Thursday feast. So I say, let’s celebrate twice! It’s a joyous occasion, this rising from the dead and ascending into light!

The butterfly is often a symbol of resurrection . . . life coming out of a cocoon.
We can also be reminded of ascension as we watch the butterfly rise gracefully from the flower.

    Yes, let’s celebrate twice. May all who need lifting up feel God;’s presence ascending in them, today and always.
