Letter from Father Richard
Ascension Day concludes the Apostles’ period of mourning. Beginning with Easter Day they have been trying to get to grips with life without Him present to them in the ordinary way of human beings.
Now on Ascension Day they are being asked to let go of Him in a very definite way. They let Him go, that He may go to the Father. We pray now with the Apostles that in this period before Pentecost we may be prepared for the next step in our journey of faith.
This period is the NOVENA before Pentecost – the original nine days of prayer. Come, Spirit come.
May you be abundantly blessed.
