Thanks to the Easter Full Moon Ascension Thursday falls on my birthday this year. 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.” Apostles Creed and Council of Trent Catechism. Page 73 Ephesian 4:8.
Ascension Thursday is one of those Catholic Holy Days which has lost it’s importance in recent years. Heaven being opened at this time was never really emphasized by the Church over the years and no wonder it got moved to Sunday. There is an old saying, “If you don’t preach it you lose it.”
I’m a blessed 85 today and because of the Lord’s return, none of us have that many birthday’s left.
Grace be with you all, in Christ, Joseph
