POINT TO PONDER
In a world where people fight so hard to win human rights, we in
Ireland are being asked to take a right away, and the most fundamental
right of all at that, the right to life. What repeal would mean is very
clear, namely that the unborn boy or girl whose heart beats at 21 days -
and the older unborn baby who has all of her / his vital organs at
twelve weeks - will have no rights at all in Irish law, should people
vote yes to repeal. This twelve week old unborn baby - who is now
enjoying for the first time the ability to kick, to move and to yawn –
would, in the first stretches of young life, be without the basic
protection of the right to life itself. (Bishop Denis Brennan, Pastoral
Letter, The Right To Life Of The Unborn).
PRAY FOR THE PROTECION OF LIFE
On May 18th in Good Counsel College Chapel, New Ross there will be a
24hr Adoration Vigil for Life. The Vigil begins on Friday evening at
6.30pm with an opening Mass and followed by hourly prayer, music and
silent Adoration. The Vigil will finish with Mass at 5pm on Sat 19th
May. There will also be an opportunity for Confessions. "Can you not
pray with me one hour?" Matthew 26:41. Refreshments available for the
duration. For further info contact 0876283405/ 0879740021.
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
We find the main account of the Ascension of the Lord in the Acts of
the Apostles. Before his final departure Jesus assured the Apostles that
they would receive power from the Holy Spirit and will be witnesses
throughout the world starting from Jerusalem. After that, "he was lifted
up while they looked on and a cloud took him from their sight." We are
reminded of the cloud at the Transfiguration of Jesus that indicates the
presence of God. At the Ascension Jesus is exalted and returns to take
his place at the right hand of the Father. He ascends into heaven and
"heaven" is the biblical location for the residence of God. At the scene
of the Ascension the apostles looked upwards like Elisha awaiting their
share of God’s Spirit. As they did so they are con-fronted by two men in
white robes, angelic figures, who interpret the event for the witnesses.
"This Jesus who was taken up from you in to heaven, this same Jesus will
come back in the same way as you have seen him go there." It is not
clear what they have in mind.
The Gospel is the addition by a different author of Mark’s account.
It avails of earlier descriptions. Before his final departure Jesus
gives a commission to the Apostles. Jesus showed himself to the eleven
and said to them, "Go out to the whole world; proclaim the Good News to
all creation. He who believes and is baptised will be saved; he who does
not believe will be condemned." Faith and baptism, as in John’s Gospel,
is the key to salvation. "No one can enter the kingdom of God without
being born of water and the Holy Spirit." In the concluding words of the
gospel, we are assured that the Lord Jesus was taken up to heaven. " The
apostles, for their part, took his place in continuing his ministry –
"while they, going out preached everywhere, the lord working with them
and confirming the word by the signs that accompanied it."
