We all know that the Lenten Season is 40 days long. We celebrate Easter Sunday and politely forget that the Easter Season is 50 days long. During the weeks of Easter we enter more deeply into the new life of the Risen Jesus. We also remember that we seem to “lose” him as he ascends to heaven and returns to the Father. During our Day of Prayer on Ascension Thursday we will pray about Jesus’ “leaving us” not to abandon us but to be our hope and we will prepare our hearts for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost Sunday.
