“I am with you until the end of the age”

Monthly Prayer Leaflet for the Rosary Teams

Our theme for the year:
“You are the Temple of the Holy Spirit”

At the Ascension, God withdraws, and in a way, leaves us his place. If it is necessary to celebrate the departure of Jesus, it is because his Ascension is his exaltation, his enthronement at the right hand of the Father.

Jesus was lifted up from among men (Acts 1,11), but he does not escape from our human condition, he is the first to enter the Kingdom. The Ascension is the mystery of the glorification of our human condition invested by the Holy Spirit.

Certainly Jesus disappears from our earthly horizon but this absence inaugurates a new form of presence: “I am with you until the end of the age” (Matt 28,30)

This is why we must not remain gazing at the heavens waiting for the return of the Lord. Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father, but let us seek him, seek him among the poor, the oppressed, the homeless, the exiled, the prisoners…

He is among the Living; let us find him close to us, find him in our team, in our neighborhood, our parish. Let us find those who wait for us to invite them into our team. Find him wherever his Spirit of Pentecost will lead us.

Happy are we to be living witnesses of his love!
