HOMILY: Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord
Matthew 28:16-20

The Ascension and Our Christian Mission
In a sense, the Ascension of Our Lord is not a story of Jesus abandoning us. It only seems so because we can no longer interact with Him as we do with other human beings. He does make Himself present to us most intimately in the Eucharist and in every endeavor undertaken for His continuing salvific mission. Jesus can be close to each one of us forever for He is no longer bound by the limits of this earth. He is with us on our journey through life. He is with us in our hardships and comforts, in our defeats and victories, in our sorrows and joys. He will be with us until the end of our lives. This is what He promised before He departed this world, “And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20)
