The Ascension of Our Lord

"Christ’s going to the Father is at once a source of sorrow, because it involves His absence; and of joy, because it involves His presence. And out of the doctrine of His resurrection and ascension, spring those Christian paradoxes, often spoken of in Scripture, that we are sorrowing, yet always rejoicing; as having nothing, yet possessing all things (II Cor 6:10)."  

~Bl. John Henry Cardinal Newman in Parochial and Plain Sermons (Vol. 6, No. 10)

God, of Your goodness, give me Yourself, for You are enough for me.
Julian of Norwich
