Greetings from QHR!
This Sunday we celebrate the Feast of the Ascension!
for the Sunday Readings
for audio readings
In Sunday's readings, we hear two versions of the risen Jesus's departure and return to His and our Father. He tells His followers that they are to continue His work, to preach in word and example His Good News that God is our loving and forgiving Father. They are to be His witnesses that the Kingdom of God has been established here and now on our earth.
Maybe we would expect Jesus to send angels but He doesn't. He sends His disciples, He sends us. Like the apostles at His ascension, He tells us to continue His work, His mission of proclaiming and living out the Kingdom of God in our daily lives. He wants others to recognize Him in us, in our love and compassion, our forgiveness and reconciling, our peacefulness and efforts to foster justice.
Archbishop Naumann has chosen the weekend of June 5-6, 2021 for when the dispensation from the obligation by the Faithful to attend Mass shall be lifted. Beginning with Masses for that weekend, all Catholics within the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas are to resume the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation.
Of course, those who suffer from underlying health concerns or compromised immunity, or who have genuinely serious concerns about the risk of contracting the coronavirus are not bound by the obligation to attend Mass.

A Bit of Humor
Two confirmed bachelors sat talking. Their conversation drifted from politics to cooking. 'I got a cook book once', said the first, 'but I could never do anything with it.' 'Too much fancy cooking in it, eh?' asked the second. 'You said it. Every one of the recipes began the same way - 'Take a clean dish and...'
