This coming Sunday we celebrate the Ascension of our Lord.

This is also homily week for me and one of the unique things about preaching this weekend at St. Patrick’s is that the church is equipped with what is perhaps the world’s largest “PowerPoint”  slide depicting the Ascension.

If you look closely at the picture, you will see one of the disciples in the lower corner of the painting. As the deacon I get to sit  beside this nameless follower of Christ each week at mass. I have looked at him hundreds, perhaps thousands of times.

As he watches Jesus disappear into the clouds I always imagine him saying something like; “So now what do we do?”

See if you can locate my nameless friend,who I have nicknamed ‘Waldo’, in the picture below. Do you agree he might well look confused by what  is taking place before his very eyes?
