Easter Reflections: May 13, 2018 The Ascension of the Lord

by Rev. Jim Betzen, C.PP.S., Kansas City Province

As we celebrate the Ascension of the Lord into heaven, I think of the role of intercessor. An intercessor is someone who speaks or requests on our behalf. There is no greater intercessor for us than Jesus Christ and His greatest intercession for us happened on the cross when He gave Himself for our salvation. Now, ascended to the right hand of the Father, He continues to intercede for us after having experienced the joys and trials of human life and given Himself fully for us. No wonder He asked us to offer our prayers and requests in His Name. When we pray in His Name, we ask Him to intercede for us.
