As we celebrate the Feast of the Ascension, we are grateful for all women of faith who are sent forth by God to bring forth life-giving love to others. We especially remember Mary, our Blessed Mother, who brought forth Christ into our world through her openness to God’s plan in her life. We pray for all of these women today and thank God for the ways our lives have been blessed by their love.
