The Seventh Sunday of Easter

“Why do you stand looking up towards heaven?”

These words were spoken to the disciples by the two angels immediately after Christ was taken in glory at what we call the Ascension—the feast we celebrated on Thursday. Why did the angels say this? Because the disciples continued to “gaze” into heaven—frozen.

But isn’t this a good thing? Aren’t we supposed to “seek those things that are above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God”? Why would the angels seek to turn their gaze from heaven back to earth? What could this mean?

See you on Sunday!
