Pope Francis says that the mystery of the Ascension invites us to be in profound communion with the Risen Jesus, invisibly present in the life of each one of us. The Ascension doesn't indicate Jesus' absence, but rather it tells us that He is living among us in a new way. He is no longer in a particular place in the world as He was before the Ascension. Now He is present in every space & time, close to each of us. In our lives we are never alone. But it will be asked: If Jesus is no longer visible, how will people come to know of his presence? The answer is that he wants to make himself present through his disciples!

Prayer for the coming of the Holy Spirit
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth.
O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations, Through Christ Our Lord, Amen.

100th Anniversary - Our Lady of Fatima
May 13, 2017 marks the 100th Anniversary of the start of the Marian apparitions in Fatima, Portugal, where the Virgin Mary visited three young shepherd children, siblings Francisco and Jacinta and their cousin Lucia, once each month from May 13 to October 13, 1917. This came almost a year after the first of three angelic apparitions that appeared to the children and taught them about prayers, adoration and sacrifice. The apparition on Oct. 13 is often called “the day the sun danced”, witnessed by tens of thousands and people as far as 40 miles away reported seeing the sun dance, spin and send out colored rays of light. Throughout her apparitions, her messages to the children was always one focused on prayer, repentance and sacrificing for sins, and that peace would come to the world if people obeyed her requests.
Pope Francis will visit the Marian shrine at Fatima on May 12-13, during which time he will canonize Francisco and Jacinta. The siblings became two of the youngest Blesseds ever on May 13, 2000 when Pope John Paul II beatified them. The cause for Sr Lucia’s beatification concluded its first phase in Portugal earlier this year and is not being examining at the Congregation for the Causes of Saints.
Pope Francis also declared to be the Jubilee Year of Fatima for the entire anniversary year, Nov. 27, 2016-Nov. 26, 2017. Not sure how to observe this special time of Marian devotion? Consider choosing one or more of Mary’s requests made during her apparitions in Fatima:
Prayer the Rosary daily
Offer sacrifice for sinners
Consecration and devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
First five Saturday devotion
Wear a brown scapular
