"In the Scripture readings the whole significance of Christ's Ascension is summarized for us. The richness of this mystery is spelled out in two statements: Jesus gave instructions, and then Jesus took his place...
The words of Jesus became a treasure for the Church to guard and to proclaim, to meditate on and to live. And at the same time, the Holy Spirit implanted in the Church an apostolic charism, in order to keep this revelation intact. Through his words Jesus was to live on in his Church: I am with you always. And so the whole ecclesial community became conscious of the need for fidelity to the instructions of Jesus, to the deposit of faith. This solicitude was to pass from generation to generation--down too our own day...
And the second reflection on the meaning of the Ascension is found in this phrase: Jesus took his place. After having undergone the humiliation of his Passion and Death, Jesus took his place at the right hand of God; he took his place with his eternal Father. But he also entered heaven as our Head...
Because of Christ's merits, because of his intercession with the Father; we are able to attain justice and holiness of life, in him. The Church may indeed experience difficulties, the Gospel may suffer setbacks, but because Jesus is at the right hand of the Father the Church will never know defeat. Christ's victory is ours. The power of the glorified Christ, the beloved Son of the eternal Father, is superabundant, to sustain each of us and all of us in the fidelity of our dedication to God's kingdom...
The efficacy of Christ's Ascension touches all of us in the concrete reality of our daily lives. Because of this mystery it is the vocation of the whole Church to wait in joyful hope for the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Be imbued with the hope that is so much a part of the mystery of the Ascension of Jesus. Be deeply conscious of Christ's victory and triumph over sin and death. Realize that the strength of Christ is greater than our weakness, greater than the weakness of the whole world. Try to understand and share the joy that Mary experienced in knowing that her Son had taken his place with his Father, whom he loved infinitely. And renew your faith today in the promise of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has gone to prepare a place for us, so that he can come back again and take us to himself. This is the mystery of the Ascension of our Head. --Saint John Paul II taken from Magnificat on the Solemnity of the Ascension of our Lord 2014

It is fitting that John Paul II is now Saint John Paul II

"Life is not born from the encounter between a sperm and an ovum, nor is it only the result of a love story between mom and dad. It is born from the only source of love who is God, who is the source of life, and who has called us to be collaborators with him in bringing forth life. We all love life for what we see, feel and touch,  but life does not belong to us; it belongs to someone else, we belong to someone who wants to take care of us and who wants us to discover the true flavor of life, for he knows that only in this way will we be truly happy." Mother Elivra Petrozzi taken from Magnificat January 22, 2014
