I have always been fascinated by the line in the First Reading (Acts 1:11) when the angels says to the disciples “Why are you men from Galilee standing here looking into the sky?”  It is a time to act, not to gaze into the sky, to where Jesus has ascended.  We have a mission, that Jesus has given us in His parting words.  And He has given us the Holy Spirit to strengthen us to complete that mission.  He has not left us alone or abandoned.  He assures us that “I am with you always”.  What more do we need?  Let us be about the work of the Lord, and give Him glory by faithfully fulfilling our mission in union with Him, and building up the Christian community in love and service.
