Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord (2013)

Proverbs 31:10 27-28: A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies... She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.
Prayer ...
Heavenly Father, we want to thank you for the women of character and grace, tenderness and fire, love and tenacity, who have helped shape our life in a way which helped us find, follow, and faithfully serve you. Please bless them this day. We ask this in Infant Jesus' name. Amen.

Meditation on Today's Scripture:
Jesus' last words to his apostles point to his saving mission and to their mission to be witnesses of his saving death and his magnificent resurrection and to proclaim the good news of salvation to the entire world. Their task is to proclaim the gospel the good news of salvation. This is the great order which the risen Jesus gives to the whole church. All believers have been given a share in this task to be messengers of the good news and ambassadors for Jesus, the only savior of the world. We have not been left alone in this task, for the risen Lord works in and through us by the authority of his Holy Spirit. Today we witness a new Pentecost as the Lord pours out his Holy Spirit upon his people to renew and make stronger the body of Christ and to equip it for efficient ministry and mission world-wide. Loving Infant Jesus, through the gift of your Holy Spirit, you fill us with a strong spirit of praise and joy which no earthly trial can subdue. Fill us with your resurrection joy and help us to live a life of praise and thanksgiving for your glory. May we witness to those around us the joy of the gospel and the reality of your resurrection.
