Being There

Being there… in the crowd… and seeing man fly!

The beginning of aviation!

Being there… in the crowd… and seeing man rocket into outer space!

The beginning of space travel!

Being there… in the crowd… and seeing time warp!

The beginning of time travel?

Being there…. in the crowd… and seeing Jesus, the Son of God, lifted up in the flesh without machines thus beginning the journey for us all to God the Father in Heaven!

God continues to overwhelm his disciples as they become used to His miraculous works.  They are getting to know God through His words, works and physical presence.  In his Ascension, He is lifted up and out of sight.  Yet his words strike the heart…

“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”(Mt 28:19–20)

You are here!!!

This is the fundamental chord that resonates in every Christian heart — that Jesus leads us to eternal happiness, perfect fun, and overwhelming peace!

This is the mission of the Church and all disciples of Jesus.  This is what happens when Jesus takes ordinary people and transforms them by His mission and establishes his kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.  This is what every parish is called by God to do!  The parish Church is a central point where the kingdom of God is lived.  That means that every celebration of the Mass, every time someone is praying in the church, every time we are at home and someone says lets pray together, the Kingdom of God is advanced.  This is the journey to Heaven without machines!

Follow Jesus and fly to heaven!
