Mass on Sunday, May 12, 2013, the Solemnity of the Ascension and
Mother's Day, by Fr. Ed Fride, Pastor, Christ the King Catholic
Church. Just before Jesus ascended, He said, "It is better for you
that I go," because then He would send the Holy Spirit, Who would
clothe us with power. Fr. Ed discusses why we need more of the
power of the Spirit in order to live for Jesus and defend His way
of life, such as Christian motherhood.
