This Sunday is the Seventh Sunday of Easter, but many parishes (including mine) also celebrate the Ascension, which is 40 days into Easter.
Jesus ends His work on earth to take His place at the right hand of the Father. Beforehand, He tells His disciples
He does not leave them to do His work on their own, as it says in Mark 16:20, "But they went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the word through accompanying signs".
We too are not alone. We do not have to do God's will all by ourselves. Jesus is in heaven helping us. All we have to do is to ask and be open to His grace.
When I am attentive to my relationship with Jesus, I am best able to do His work and live out His will.
I hope to continue to grow in this area in my own life and pass this on to my children.
