Homilies: The Solemnity of the Ascension, Year A

The homily preached by Bishop Bill for the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord (Year A) from the live-streamed 9.30 am Mass from the (all-but-empty) Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton.

The readings proclaimed were Acts 1:1-11; Ephesians 1:17-23; Matthew 28:16-20.

“My hope is that this time of lesser activity will be an opportunity for us to reflect on what really matters, on what we have most profoundly missed, and will allow us to return to the most fundamental ‘Mission’ of the Church, to be the Lord’s witnesses in the world, to go out to all the world and tell the good news, to go, make disciples of all the nations.”
