NOTES AND QUOTES

Seventh Sunday of Easter

The ascension is a festival of the future of the world. The flesh is redeemed and glorified, for the Lord has risen for ever. We Christians are, therefore, the most sublime materialists.
(Karl Rahner)

The ascension of Christ is his liberation from all restrictions of time and space. It does not represent his removal from the earth, but his constant presence everywhere on earth.
(William Temple)

The eternity that the ascension promises is not something that begins after you are dead. It is going on all the time. We are in it now.
(Charlotte Addison)
