SUORE DELLA PROVVIDENZA ROSMINIANE
Via Aurelia, 773
My dear Sisters,
It is not possible to let this great feast of the Ascension pass without a greeting – the glorious epiphany of Jesus Risen.
During these 40 days before the Ascension, Jesus continues to strengthen our faith.
He appears to many people, so they can see that he is truly risen.
The apostle Thomas testifies to the wounds of the Lord, the signs of the Passion, which he recognizes on the body of the Risen Christ. Not only does the Church receive the proof of the empty tomb, but we also ‘see’ the Risen Lord.
He eats and drinks; he is not an apparition.
Jesus strengthens our faith by leaving the Church with credible evidence of the fact that he rose from the dead: 40 days with Him!
Jesus has entered into the glorious life of God and opened to us a future of hope:
“But truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. … I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth”.
