This week’s virtual pilgrimage with Deacon Tom and Mary Jane Fox takes us to the Holy Sites of the Ascension! Although the Scriptures do not indicate a specific location where Jesus ascended into Heaven, there are references we can use as a guide along our journey. In fact, the Mass of the Ascension of Our Lord can be celebrated anywhere on the Mount of Olives. Virtually walk with them through these holy sites, you will feel as if you are actually there!
During our time together, our Hosts discuss the following:
- The environment of the Holy Sites.
- Scripture References to the Ascension of our Lord.
- Much more!
Listen to this program now:
Jewel for the Journey:
“The Rosary has always expressed this knowledge born of faith and invited the believer to pass beyond the darkness of the Passion in order to gaze upon Christ’s glory in the Resurrection and Ascension.” – St. Pope John Paul II, Rosarium Virginis Mariae, 23
Prayer to The Holy Spirit:
Oh Holy Spirit, by Your power, Christ was raised from the dead to save us all. By Your grace, miracles are performed in Jesus’ name. By Your love, we are protected from evil. And so, we ask with humility and a beggar’s heart for Your gift of Charity within us. Oh Divine Spirit, increase in me, the virtue of charity that I may love as God loves. Come Holy Spirit, guide me each day to walk with Jesus, our Master. Amen
