Scripture Reflection for the Ascension of the Lord (May 12, 2013)
Scripture Readings: Acts 1:1-11 Psalm 47 Ephesians 1:17-23 Luke 24:46-53
It’s a common cliché, “God never closes a door without opening a window.” Yet it seems equally true that when you go through one door, you close the one behind you. This is especially true when discerning a vocation.

The great poet T.S. Eliot said that, “there are some things about which we can say nothing, but before which we dare not be silent.” In the same way Pope Francis in his apostolic exhoration, Evangelii Gaudium, has continued to remind us that we must speak, we must proclaim the name and joy of Christ. Perhaps in no season is Christ as “before” us as the season of Lent, and perhaps not time more in Lent than during Holy Week.
