Read the homily proclaimed by Archbishop Timothy P. Broglio on the feast of the Ascension during the annual Memorial Mass at the National Shrine of the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception on Sunday, May 20, 2012.
“We, too, gather in prayer to celebrate our condition and mission and to fire up anew the charge to evangelize the world. As the faith-filled community of the Archdiocese for the Military Services, we continue the tradition of gathering this Sunday to celebrate our communion with those who have died in the service of our Country, those who served and are serving, and those who serve them.”
