Pop-Up Catechesis: The Ascension and Three Questions

Pop-Up Catechesis with Joe Paprocki

Imagine that a terrible storm caused considerable damage to the area you live in, including your home. Once the storm passes, you and your neighbors emerge from your homes to assess the damage. Relief workers and first responders are everywhere, but everything is in chaos. In fact, some scam artists are posing as relief workers and are seeking to take advantage of folks. In order to figure out how to get help for you, your family, and your neighbors, you would no doubt flag down a first responder or relief worker and ask the following questions:

  1. Who’s in charge of the relief efforts?
  2. Where can I find this person so that I can speak to him or her directly?
  3. What is being done to look after the needs of all these people?

These three questions are at the heart of the celebration of the Feast of the Ascension of the Lord, which is the focus of this episode of Pop-Up Catechesis.
