SHARE THE HOPE The readings for today's celebra on of the Ascension of the Lord once again remind us that as Chris ans we are people of hope. In the second reading Saint Paul eloquently exhorts the Ephesians to enlighten their hearts so that they will know the hope and glory that come from being people who place their trust in the Lord Jesus. In the story of the Ascension, recounted in the first reading, the Lord Jesus assures the disciples that the Holy Spirit's power will come upon them. Finally, in the Gospel, the Lord lets the disciples know that their mission is to spread the hope of the gospel to all the na ons. This wonderful feast keeps our eyes focused on the hope in which we were grounded on the day of our bap sm.
