Dear sons, be imbued with the hope
that is so much a part of the mystery
of the Ascension of Jesus.
Be deeply conscious of Christ’s
victory and triumph over sin and death.
Realize that the strength of Chist
is greater than our weakness,
greater than the weakness of the whole world.
(Pope John Paul II, Homily on the Solemnity of the Ascension, 24 May 1979)
