Reflection for the Feast of Ascension

Reflection for Ascension Day

Christ of two worlds,
earth and heaven,
now and not yet,
not here and now here.

Christ of two dimensions,
exalted and embracing,
lifted beyond
yet present here.

Christ of cross and resurrection,
arms stretched out
to bear our pain
and lifted up to bless.

Christ risen and ascended,
above us and amongst us
leaving and returning
carry us and bless us.
