Easter Essentials for Friday May 22, 2020. The Easter moments is the resurrection-ascension event. In keeping with today’s quote from African-American bishop Robert Barron, let us learn that the ascension is not about Jesus leaving. When Jesus ascended, He never said good-bye! Rather, in the event of the ascension of our Lord, He is taking His rightful position as a chief executive officer would for his company. Jesus Christ is the leader of our church! Hallelujah! Take time to praise Him today being mindful He is in heaven above at the Father’s right hand! Glory to God!
