Fr. Voigt, "The Mystery of the Ascension Revealed"

Fr. Voigt, "The Mystery of the Ascension Revealed"

Every rise the the spiritual life is determined by the depths of the descent which creates the foundation for the rise.  In the descent of our Lord Jesus Christ from the kingdom of the most holy Trinity there is a mystery that transcend the natural and leads us primarily into the eternal goal which our hearts long to achieve:  the entry
back into the heart of God.  To be rejoined to the family in which there is no jealousy only charity.  The Ascension of our Lord challenges us in our view of this world.  So then let us consider the great truth of the virtue of humility.

Humility is the truth concerning the human physical nature we all possess.  It is a nature which is a composite of a body with an eternal soul.  This union of body and soul demands that the body subordinate itself to the soul.  The higher must always be in evidence.  In canon law it is expressed in this manner:  "the lesser must yield to the greater."  In the holy mass when a bishop is present the priest yield primary position to the good bishop.
In the question of life, all subordinate themselves to the one called the "boss".  The higher has the responsibility of leadership and so we humble ourselves to do what must be done for the common good.  

Humility teaches us that "we are dust and unto dust we shall return."  This is true of the human body we possess and so we must use the body as a means of self immolation in order that the greater might dominate.  The soul gains when the body loses.  In reality
the body also gains only when the soul leads.  Our Lord accepted a human body and blood offered by the "fiat" of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the humblest of all creatures.  In doing so He descended deeply into the human experience.  He humbled Himself and 
became a "doulos" (a slave) to the the dirty work of our salvation for "without the shedding of His Blood there could be no salvation." (Hebrews 9:22 paraphrased)

This humiliation of the Second Person of the Divine Trinity brought with it the "glorification"of the Word made Flesh.  As deeply as He entered into humanity so highly was He exalted above all creation.  This is the pattern that encourages each of us in the mystery of the Ascension.  As I humble myself before any and all I shall imitate our Master in the divine exaltation reserved for those who love what God loved.  Our love of humility becomes the imitation of our Lord, our Lady and all the saints and angels.  It is the bond that unites the Family of God.  

Unlike anything we have been taught by the proud contemporary Conciliar Church of the New Advent, the Mystical Body of Christ follows the pattern of true humility and offers itself daily for the salvation of sinners who know not what they do.  The true servants of Mary enslave themselves to the salvation of souls in horrendous situations of sin as exist in the world today.  Sin makes all nature blush but it calls the heart of the apostolic Church to offer the unbloody sacrifice of Christ to bring heaven to mixed up souls.  This Mystical Body humbles itself to become the light of the world and the salt of the earth.  Humility is the soil of the divine will to bring forth the fruit of salvation for those whom God has called.

Yes, you will ascend to the Father if you have humbled yourself and never complained about the sins of others.  You will find peace in the virtue of humility and you will find holiness in this most marvelous virtue which imitates the way of salvation mapped out by our divine and most loving Lord.  Grasp at the virtue with all your might and you will love the result of saving souls daily and never becoming upset for no one can offend the dirt under our feet.  No one can offend us because humility has conquered our damnable pride.  God bless you all with this soil of salvation.

In the humble hearts of Jesus, Mary and Joseph,

Fr. Richard Voigt
