Given that I have often commented negatively on homilists and their inability to link what we hear from week to week I should praise our present celebrant who regularly refers back ( and forward) to help us see the long picture. Now I am not sure I wholly agree with him about the readings of the Easer Season - the working out the meaning of the risen Christ. I would prefer that the mean is worked through in the mystery of the Church - but that is a minor quibble.
We used the Ascension refrain for Hail, O festival day - but as noted last week the verses do not quite supply something direct - unless their is a version I have not come across.
