 Stories
 
During my habit of reading the daily obituaries, I have discovered some amazing stories of the victims of COVID 19.  Firefighters have a lot of stories of events and the story produces a culture.  The stories create the network. In the conflicts with the President and many over meetings in the White House, the stories of our nation help us to understand.  The recovery of confidence in the country needs an understanding of history.  The civil network is important. The stories of our deceased on Memorial Day weave together the notion of our country and its history. In our spiritual life, of this Feast of the Ascension of the Lord, reminds us of the importance of stories.  In the Acts of the Apostles, St Luke writes about the importance of stories: “I dealt with all that Jesus did and taught.”  Jesus thinks that stories support the mission: “God, therefore and make disciples of all nations.”  In the Acts of the Apostles, the apostles need the stories and the network, because they had many doubts: “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel.” Jesus encourages the apostles: “Wait for the promise of the Father.”  St Paul describes the goal of discipleship: “That you may know what is the hope that belongs to his call, what are the riches of glory in his inheritance among the holy ones and what is the surpassing greatness of the power for us who believe.”  The call to discipleship of each Sunday began at the Ascension.  The joy of disciples is round in today’s psalm: “The Lord is the great king over all the earth…sing praise to the Lord amid trumpet blasts.”
Let Us Pray
• Health for those who are sick

• Hope for those confined to nursing homes

• Silence for those who are confused
