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
therefore and make disciples of all nations.”
In the Acts of the Apostles, the apostles
need the stories and the network, because they had
“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
“The Lord is
the great king over all the earth…sing praise to the
Lord amid trumpet blasts.”
