Today we remember St Columba, founder of Iona Monastery.  He is a saint native to the British Isles, yet spent a lot of his life in exile abroad, although still within these islands.  St Columba is a great saint, he has been called an apostle to Scotland.  We are fortunate indeed to have a detailed account of him of him written by St Adamnan - a later abbot of Iona - from records of the monastery.  There are of course other references to him, not least in St Bede’s History.
 
Iona is a small beautiful Island in Western Scotland. I have been there several times.  It is also curious place, much…

The Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ into heaven is not an isolated occurrence that befits only the Son of God.  It is the promise to all those who are in Christ to ascend in and with Him to glory.  Everything that is His by nature can become ours through grace.  Our Ascension is variously called “deification” or as St. Peter explained, we are thereby to become:- “partakers of the divine nature.” (2 Peter 1:3-4) 

By sharing in Christ our God, body, mind and spirit, we become members of Him, His Body the Church.  However, this participation in Christ works the other way round as well.  Every part…

What does it mean to be “ascended”?  We need to know because as surely as Christ ascended, so shall we in Him also ascend.  Perhaps it means the same as resurrection?  Well there is a connection, but, no, it does not mean the same thing.  The connection is that Christ was raised from the dead in order that he might ascend to the Father.  In his risen state Christ did not “stick around” as it were indefinitely here on earth.  There yet remained one great thing for him to do to seal our salvation ... to ascend to the throne of God with our glorified humanity and for that he needed to leave so that the Holy…

Welcome to the Coffee Cup Commentaries. We are continuing our study of the Gospel according to St. Mark, going very quickly through chapter 15, partly because the events of that wonderful and terrible and saving day went very quickly. Usually it took you a couple of days, hanging on the cross, to die, but this was over in just a few hours. So we return to our study, looking at the crucifixion of Christ in Mark 15:33ff.

When the sixth hour came, darkness fell over the whole land until the ninth hour. At the ninth hour, Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Elōi, elōi, lama sabachthani,” which…

At that time, as Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon who is called Peter and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
Immediately they left their nets and followed him. And going on from there he saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets, and he called them.
Immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed him. And he went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the gospel…
