This week I find myself preparing for the homily. I keep coming back to the theme of courage. The apostles watch in wonder as our Lord ascends into heaven, and they are left looking upwards. When that moment passes, I imagine them all looking at Peter and asking him, “Okay what do we do now?” The next move will require the gifts of the Holy Spirit one of which is courage.

Courage: Dorthy Thompson:

Courage, it would seem, is nothing less than the power to overcome danger, misfortune, fear, injustice, while continuing to affirm inwardly that life with all its sorrows is good; that everything is meaningful even if in a sense beyond our understanding; and that there is always tomorrow.
