21st May 2023 (Year A Easter 7) “Why the Ascension Matters”

Sometimes images don’t help us understand the real meaning.

Many paintings of the Ascension are like this. Jesus gave the real message, “You will be my witnesses”

So as Christians we need to get on with it – visiting, clothing and feeding those in need – shifting our gaze from vertical to horizontal.


Moving to a new place can be very disruptive and challenging experience when one has to leave best friends behind.

There are ways that still mean we can keep in touch despite being parted.

Jesus left His friends, He left the Holy Spirit as the connection to be with us through life,

We are not alone because His spirit is with us to encourage us every day.
