Fr. Matt's Message This Week

Dear Friends,

There was a curious custom years ago that perhaps
developed in an age when Easter was seen less as a
baptismal season than as a kind of tour through the
deeds of the Risen Christ. The paschal candle, sign of

Christ’s presence, was removed from public view on Ascension Thursday, banished to the baptistery. Ascension day does speak of the hidden aspects of Christ’s life among us, but it does not have much to do with God’s absence. Christ has not shed his human lifelike an inconvenient shell, but rather has taken humanity into heaven. The theologian Karl Rahner said that it is a festival of “the nearness of God.” In vanishing from our sight, Christ has become utterly available to all at every time and every place, and is “closer to us than he ever was.”Today is the feast of believing that beyond our final breath is a presence that waits for us, a banquet prepared, a tender homecoming embrace. Rahner said that today is a festival of the future of the world, a day for anticipating the world’s true destiny, and therefore hardly a day to be going around hiding candles!

Prayers & Blessings!

Fr. Matt
