STEWARDSHIP REFLECTIONS

You are a leader! In one way or another your vocation calls you to lead. Life leadership roles like parenting is one example. Another is leading a spouse or friend in the right direction. You may not be in a leadership ‘position’ in your job, yet opportunities to lead at work come up every day. Any time you try to influence another person in a positive way you are acting as a leader. Our common vocation as disciples of Jesus is our most important leadership role. As disciples, we are all called to lead others to Christ. Jesus is the Good Shepherd and his way of leading is a model for leadership that we should imitate.

WEEKLY CATECHISM:

CHAPTER TWO: I BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST, THE ONLY SON OF GOD
Article 6 : HE ASCENDED INTO HEAVEN, AND IS SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD THE FATHER ALMIGHTY
III. The Meaning and Saving Significance of the Resurrection

662 “And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself.”542 The lifting up of Jesus on the cross signifies and announces his lifting up by his Ascension into heaven, and indeed begins it. Jesus Christ, the one priest of the new and eternal Covenant, “entered, not into a sanctuary made by human hands . . . but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf.”543 There Christ permanently exercises his priesthood, for he “always lives to make intercession” for “those who draw near to God through him.”544 As “high priest of the good things to come” he is the center and the principal actor of the liturgy that honors the Father in heaven.545

663 Henceforth Christ is seated at the right hand of the Father: “By ‘the Father’s right hand’ we understand the glory and honor of divinity, where he who exists as Son of God before all ages, indeed as God, of one being with the Father, is seated bodily after he became incarnate and his flesh was glorified.”546

664 Being seated at the Father’s right hand signifies the inauguration of the Messiah’s kingdom, the fulfillment of the prophet Daniel’s vision concerning the Son of man: “To him was given dominion and glory and kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him; his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom one that shall not be destroyed.”547 After this event the apostles became witnesses of the “kingdom [that] will have no end.”548

IN BRIEF

665 Christ’s ascension marks the definitive entrance of Jesus’ humanity into God’s heavenly domain, whence he will come again (cf. Acts 1:11); this humanity in the meantime hides him from the eyes of men (cf. Col 3:3).

666 Jesus Christ, the head of the Church, precedes us into the Father’s glorious kingdom so that we, the members of his Body, may live in the hope of one day being with him for ever.

667 Jesus Christ, having entered the sanctuary of heaven once and for all, intercedes constantly for us as the mediator who assures us of the permanent outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
