Ascension Thursday Thought

In our culture we use the word high to indicate the ultimate. We look for banks offering the highest interest and investments promising the highest yields. There are magazines and websites to tell us which products have the highest ratings. High test scores open doors to the most desirable  schools. And lots of people get high when nothing seems to fulfill them. 

The angel said to Mary, "You are to conceive in your womb and bear a son...He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High." (Luke 1:32) And in today's feast day, Jesus ascends on high.

Could it be that in Jesus Christ, there is everything we are really searching for? That in Jesus, the human search, which often leads to even disastrous dead ends, comes to its fullest, highest and happiest end? Hmm...


  1. Christ is the beginning and the end of everything. It is the choices we make along the way that are the problem. As long as we know Jesus will be waiting for us, we can make it througH every bump in the road.
