God’s intent was to perfectly rule heaven and earth through the men and women that he created in his image. This is the nature of his kingdom, and that is our vocational end as human beings; and despite our individual and corporate rebellion, failure, cowardice and selfishness; despite our captivity to death, in Mary’s son, he finally accomplished that purpose.

Today a man sits on the throne of the universe- our brother.

Blessed Ascension Day to each of you!
