Although last Thursday was “officially” the Solemnity of the Ascension, my diocese recognized the day today. The main message during today’s Homily:
Go do something.
How great is that? The disciples were standing around, looking up, and the two men dressed in white went up to them and asked them what they were doing. Jesus left them with their assignments, yet there they were, just looking up. The men shook them out of their daze, and they knew it was their job to do something.
The priest related this to when he was young, and during summer break he and his brothers would sit around the table and complain that there was nothing to do. His mom would shoo them outside and tell them to “go do something”.
What will you do with what God has given you? Will you sit there, staring at the sky, or will you “GO DO SOMETHING”?
