Dear Friend in the Lord,

Ascension of Jesus: In today’s Gospel, Jesus blessed His disciples and ascended into heaven.  The Truth of Jesus’ Gospel about Eternal Life is fully witnessed through His Suffering and Death (Sacrificial and unconditional Mercy and Love), His Resurrection and His Ascension.  What is Jesus saying to you today?

 Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 24:46-53

Jesus said to his disciples, ‘You see how it is written that the Christ would suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that, in his name, repentance for the forgiveness of sins would be preached to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses to this.

‘And now I am sending upon you what the Father has promised. Stay in the city, then, until you are clothed with the power from on high.’

Then he took them out as far as the outskirts of Bethany, and raising his hands he blessed them. Now as he blessed them, he withdrew from them and was carried up to heaven. They worshipped him and then went back to Jerusalem full of joy; and they were continually in the Temple praising God.
