Part 12: The Second Glorious Mystery, the Ascension

Part 12 of a 15 part series on the mysteries of the Holy Rosary.

The second glorious mystery: The Ascension.

Things just keep getting better. First an empty tomb and now this! No one gets up and walks away from his own grave under his own power. No one lifts off all on his own either. Jesus spends 40 days teaching His followers the things I trust have been handed down to me via Sacred Tradition through Holy Mother Church. Because no where does it say that anybody wrote these things down the way they did the Gospel or early Church history. Makes me wonder what those days were like. What they sounded like. The questions and the answers. He told them that He would be gone for a little while and then come back. And so He did. Three days in the grave. He was gone three days. But He’s back now. But He’s going again. This time He’ll be gone for … ? But He makes a promise to come back for His own. Angels stand nearby and comfort His disciples. “This Jesus that you see leaving? He will come again the same way He left.”

Prayer: Mother Mary, please help me be always ready for Jesus when He comes back for me.
