Dear brothers and sisters,
This month we gather on June 2, the Sunday when we observe the Ascension of the Lord. In the 5th century, Leo the Great preached that in His Ascension, Christ “began to be indescribably more present” to us.
Much later, in the 13th century, Francis of Assisi wrote how we are supposed to respond that indescribable presence:
- St. Francis of Assisi, Letter to the Entire Order
And today – how do you bear witness to God’s voice in word and deed? Because that is indeed the reason He has sent you into the world.
May the Lord be “indescribably more present” to you this Ascension.
