DAILY DEVOTIONS:May 30 'Sharing the Beauty and Joy'

'Sharing the Beauty and Joy'
The Ascension of the Lord
You are witnesses of these things. And behold I am sending the promise of my Father upon you; but stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.
- Luke 24:48-49
Consider the times in your life when you have stood still and stared in wonder. Perhaps it was an amazing sunrise or sunset, or an encounter with a wild animal. Were you struck silent by the sight? In that moment, you were a witness of God's goodness. And because of what you witnessed, you could no longer be the same. The Ascension of the Lord, witnessed long ago by the early disciples, yielded a similar result for the witnesses. A great wonder stilled the crowd; everyone was changed. I imagine they were struck silent--transfixed by God's boundless love and beauty. Later, the Holy Spirit empowers them, sending them out to serve and tell others about the beauty they have come to know--just as the Holy Spirit invites us to serve and share the joy today.
God, help me to pay attention to your beauty and goodness today.
- Sr. Julia Walsh, F.S.P.A.
