FROM OUR EDITORS—May 29, 2022 – Ascension of the Lord/7th Sunday of Easter

This weekend, we commemorate Memorial Day in the United States. It is the unofficial start of the summer. Our faith formation programs have come to an end, and our classrooms are most likely closed by now. We have begun a well-deserved period of rest from our catechetical duties. Is this really true?

As I was looking at this Sunday’s Readings on the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord, the words of the Gospel Acclamation caught my eye, “Go and teach all nations, says the Lord; I am with you always, until the end of the world.”

As Jesus is returning to his Father in Heaven, he is leaving us a pretty clear mandate to TEACH. As followers of Christ, our duty to teach others about Jesus doesn’t begin and end with the school calendar. We don’t always need a lesson plan and some clearly stated objectives to share our faith. Let us make the most of these summer months to spread Jesus Gospel in our actions, in our words and in our silence.
