Pentecost Sunday

 

 

                           What goes up must come down is an oft-cited principle attributed to Newton and his theories of gravity. Most kids learn this to be an eternal, unchanging truth. This aphorism struck a personal chord for me when I was throwing lawn darts as a kid in my aunt's back yard while her dog Bruno was roaming around. The good news is that Bruno didn't suffer long. The other good news is that they don't make lawn darts anymore. But what's the relation between the Ascension of Christ and the Descent of the Holy Spirit? Does the principle apply? Is Pentecost a result of gravity? The fire that consumes the upper room enflames the Apostles and the Blessed Virgin Mary for mission. Jesus' Ascension does not result in His absence but a renewal of resurgent life. His Ascension enables us to renounce the weaknesses of our current life with the strength of the Holy Spirit so bestowed. As we conclude Easter with the gifts of the Holy Spirit, we are set on fire and weakness is turned to strength, despair is turned to hope. Authored by God, the laws of Nature also see to the descent of God's very divine life upon us! Happy Pentecost. Be on fire with the love of the Lord that He may live His life in you. Surrender to the Holy Spirit and your Christian life will envelope you and all you meet. Jesus ascends that we may be participants in His divine life here below. Sounds familiar.
