READ THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR Job 37-39
MY LAST WORD
A day before we celebrate the feast of the Lord’s Ascension, we hear Jesus speaking about His approaching return to the Father. He spoke these words during the Last Supper. So, He was actually not referring to His Ascension but to his death on the Cross the next day. When we celebrated Holy Week again a few weeks ago, we did it with sadness. Nothing is wrong with this. But when we read the Gospel according to John very carefully, we detect that for Jesus the Cross was not the instrument of a cruel death but the way back to his Father. In John’s gospel the Cross becomes the throne on which Jesus is enthroned to rule forever. His last cry on the Cross, according to John’s gospel, “It is accomplished,” is a shout of triumph for having fulfilled the will of His Father to whom He can now return. The Ascension was only a visible sign of this return for His disciples to understand the mystery that surrounds His death and resurrection.
The FEAST is one of the happiest places on earth.
