Ascension Thursday 2017
We learn several things on this feastday. The dogma that Christ returned to heaven on Ascension Thursday was revealed by the angels who told the apostles. Among Our Lord’s last words were His instructions not to worry about the future because the Father in His Providence will take care of everything and to go forth and preach the Gospel. Most importantly, today heaven became our home because Our Savior, the Head of the Mystical Body of which we are members, is there preparing a place for us.
