WAITING FOR WHAT'S ALREADY HERE
During the past seven weeks of Easter, we've been remembering the resurrection of the Lord. Just like the disciples 2000 years ago, we rejoice in serving the Living Son of God, rather than following a wise teacher from the past. Today, we stand with the disciples as we witness His ascension into heaven. I imagine for a lot of us, (as well as many of the disciples), our thought is, “Okay…now what? How does this change anything? What are we supposed to do now?”
The answer to “what” has been given to us through the readings these past few weeks. What this means and what we are expected to do is, “love one another as I have loved you.” I don’t know about you, but for me, this is a tall order. I’m going to need some help with this. Again, the answer to how we can do this will come. Next week we celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost. Through the Spirit we are given the power to love one another. Then I remember that I received this power at my baptism. Now the answers are simple, but still not easy. What? I’m called to love. When? Now. I’ve received that at baptism.
God Bless, Dave Corder

Loving God, your son Jesus said
your kingdom is like a banquet:
A festive gathering for all people
of every race and color
a table at which the lonely find company,
the hungry savor rich foods and fine wine,
and strangers enjoy warm family ties.
Jesus calls us to build this kingdom here on earth.
Teach us, Lord, the ways of hospitality,
Give us the spirit of joyful welcome
and the sensitivity to help people on the move
feel they belong.
Grant that our Eucharistic table
may draw our new neighbors
to a loving community.
And that the Eucharistic table in our parish
may prefigure that banquet in heaven
where all are one with you.
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
