Dear Friend in the Lord,

Ascending into heaven right before their eyes.  They were filled with great joy, and were continually praising God in the Temple. Ponder on, “Does the Truth of Jesus’ Death, Resurrection and Ascension into heaven bring you great joy that you would also gain Eternal Life?

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 the nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses to this.

‘And now I am sending down to 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 lifting up 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.
