The Second Glorious Mystery: The Ascension of Jesus Christ

 

 

With our minds and spirits lifted up to God, with our internal 

regard upwards, in prayer, trust and humility, hope for the eternal

grows.

Yes, Jesus ascended up to Heaven; for as He came down 

from Heaven when He was born,

He returned the same way; He ascended back up to 

Heaven.

 

His apostles were present, they saw Him ascending into Heaven

and:

 

"they were looking intently into the sky as He was going when 

suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. 

“Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into 

the sky? 

This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will 

come back in the same way you have seen Him go into heaven.”

 Acts 1:10-11 

 

The Three Theological Virtues; Faith, Hope and Charity, allow

man to share in God's nature. 

It is God who infuses these virtues directly into the soul where they 

make the believers capable of living as God's children and meriting 

eternal life.

 

So, what is Faith?

 

"Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about 

what we do not see."

Hebrews 11:1

 

Daily prayers of the Church and the Sacrifice of the Mass as frequently

as possible is necessary to nourish the faith, and to grow in Faith.


Fruit of Mystery:

Hope and the desire for Heaven.

May the grace of the Mystery come into our hearts.
