Today, the Lord comforts His disciples. Jesus is leaving! Where will He go? First, He went away to die on the Cross: His death was a departure to Heaven. Three days later He resurrected and, for a brief time, He still appeared to His disciples. Finally, the day of Ascension, with His resurrected body, He went up to Heaven.
— The Lord is asking us not to let our heart be frightened. He gives us true peace: Jesus, because He is God, is in Heaven and is with each one of us. Even within us when we receive Him in Communion.
