Homily for the Feast of the Ascension - Yr C 11/12 -5-13
It's been a while since I posted, so here's a preview of next weekend's homily. May change!
This ministry of Jesus is continued today in the Church through the ministry of the People of God: us. A structure of ordained ministry of bishop, priest and deacon arose to ensure the mission was achieved in an organised way, but when it comes to the mission of the Church, we really are all in it together.
And we have inherited that responsibility.
More about the Holy Spirit next week when we celebrate Pentecost, the coming of the Holy Spirit in a dramatic way, in fire and wind, bringing about the birth of the Church.
