Christ’s death and Resurrection begins the work of Our Redemption, but Christ’s work is incomplete, 1 (666) as Heaven needs to be opened and the Birth of the Church needs to be propagated.
Heaven having been closed now for about 4000 years is once again opened on Ascension Thursday. “He ascended into heaven, sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; FROM THENCE He shall come to judge the living and the dead.” 2
The Limbo of the Fathers also called Paradise and the Opening of Heaven a place and state of rest wherein the souls of the just who died before CHRIST’S ASCENSION were detained until he opened HEAVEN to them; also referred to as “Abraham’s bosom”.
Our Lord promised not to leave us alone but said He would return now in the third person of the Trinity, the Holy Ghost. However instead of sending down the Holy Ghost the following Sunday He waits for the concluding week of Pentecost. (Hebrew Harvest Festival) The Hebrews were arriving from all over the world to celebrate the Birth of the Ten Commandments as this is when The Father came down from Heaven to establish The Law. So, God now Chooses to send the Holy Ghost down for the Birth of the Mystical Body of Christ and for the Harvest of Souls, establishing a Tradition and for the great Harvest of Souls at the End of the World.
As a result of these events the faithful assemble every Sunday for the coming of the Lord and Saviour in the Holy Eucharist.
There will come a Day when we have a final assembly for our Trip to the Heavenly Jerusalem on that last Pentecost Sunday. So as the Church teaches us to receive Holy Communion at least once a year during the Easter (Pentecost) season. (USA).
Our Lord says, ” When you see the fields are White,” (Easter Pentecost Season) then you know they are ready for the Harvest. Harvest time in the Old Church and Christianity are celebrated in the final week of Pentecost. So be sure that we and all of the Faithful make there Easter Obligation before the close of Pentecost so that we too will be ready for our Harvest Festival and be counted among the faithful departed and join them in the final assembly in our Heavenly Jerusalem.
Remembering Our Lords words from the Gospel for Trinity Sunday, “I am with you all days, even to the CONSUMMATION OF THE WORLD.” Which is completed the night before.
Grace be with you through Mary Our Hope. In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
