One Minute Reflection – 28 May

When he had said this, as they were looking on,
he was lifted up and a cloud took him from their sight……….Acts 1:9

acts 1-9

REFLECTION – “Today our Lord Jesus Christ ascended into heaven; let our hearts ascend with Him.
Listen to the words of the Apostle:  If you have risen with Christ, set your hearts on the things that are above where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God;  seek the things that are above, not the things that are on earth.   For just as He remained with us even after His ascension, so we too are already in heaven with Him, even though what is promised us has not yet been fulfilled in our bodies.” ………………………St. Augustine
When we went down into the Font of Baptism we were incorporated into Jesus Christ, made members of His Body, the Church.   Therefore, as Augustine also wrote,  “Where the Head is, there is the Body, where I am, there is my Church, we too are one; the Church is in me and I in her and we two are your Beloved and your Lover.”   In other words, we have ascended with the Lord!

where the head is-st augustine

PRAYER – Holy Father, teach me and help me to ‘abide’ in Your Son, who by ascending to You, took me too with Him.   For He is my root and my foundation and I live only in Him! My Saviour and Redeemer, Jesus Christ my Lord, be with me always and intercede for us all with our Father. Amen
