05/25/17 - NNHS Newsletter - Ascension Day

“And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud
received him out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up,
behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee,
why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven,
shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven
.

- Acts 1: 9-11 (King James Version)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Today is a Christian holiday (though not necessarily observed by all Christians), celebrated on the 40th day after Easter Sunday. It marks the day when Jesus Christ ascended up into Heaven, 40 days after His resurrection from the dead. We are celebrating it together here today as the big Typhoon family that we are.

    Favorite Quote

       Thank you so much, Laura! I'm not sure if you can remember, but this was one of 

   my mama's, the late Maxine Frix Buckley (John Marshall HS - '25) (19 May 1908 - 15 Feb 1999) favorite quotations as well. She not only repeated it often, she incorporated it into her daily life!

BONUS ASCENSION DAY PICNIC IDEA SUGGESTIONS:

http://catholiccuisine.blogspot.com/2008/04/feast-of-ascension.html - Feast of the Ascension - "...What would the menu for an Ascension picnic include? There is not a set menu, but it is traditional to eat a bird of some sort (pigeon, pheasant, duck) since Jesus "flew" to heaven. In our culture chicken or turkey might be more common and available even though they are not know for their flight abilities. Also any fruits as they represent Christ, the first fruit of all men. The Italians specifically brought beans and grapes to church on the feast of the Ascension. The grapes and beans were supposed to be used as a feast for the dead in heaven..."


FINALLY:


From www.ajokeaday.com - 05/24/17:

Jim decided to tie the knot with his longtime girlfriend. One evening, after the honeymoon, he was cleaning his golf shoes. His wife was standing there watching him. After a long period of silence she finally speoke. "Honey, I've been thinking, now that we are married I think it's time you quit golfing. Maybe you should sell your golf clubs."

Jim got a horrified look on his face. She asked, "Darling, what's wrong?"

”There for a minute you were sounding like my ex-wife,” he replied

"Ex-wife!" she screamed, "I didn't know you were married before!"

"I wasn't."

O Christ, Thou Hast Ascended

Music - Greenland

Words by Edward H. Bickersteth, Jr., 1872
(25 Jan 1825 -16 May 1906)
 

O Christ, thou hast ascended
triumphantly on high,
by cherub guards attended
and armies of the sky:
let earth tell forth the story:
our very flesh and bone,
Emmanuel, in glory,
ascends his Father's throne.

Heaven's gates unfold above thee,
but canst thou, Lord, forget
the little band who love thee
and gaze from Olivet?
Nay, on thy breast engraven
thou bearest every name,
our Priest in earth and heaven
eternally the same.

There, there thou standest pleading
the virtue of thy blood,
for sinners interceding,
our Advocate with God;
and every changeful fashion
of our brief joys and cares
finds thought in thy compassion
and echo in thy prayers.

O for the priceless merit
of thy redeeming cross!
Vouchsafe thy sevenfold Spirit
and turn to gain our loss;
till we by strong endeavor
in heart and mind ascend,
and dwell with thee for ever
in glories without end.
