Homily given at the 11:30 a.m.
Mass on Sunday, May 20, 2012, the Solemnity of the Ascension of the
Lord, by Fr. Ed Fride, Pastor, Christ the King Catholic Church. Fr.
Ed notes that the apostles couldn't understand how it was better
for Jesus to ascend until they received the Holy Spirit at
Pentecost and experienced a level of union with Him more intimate
than they had ever known. That same depth of intimate relationship,
with all its power, is available to all of us through the Holy
Spirit, if we cooperate.
Key words: Ascension, Pentecost,
