Why Did He Ascend?

Ascension Thursday Evening 2024
Today is one of the happiest days of the year because we celebrate the triumph of Christ, and through Him the triumph of the Church.  Christ ascended into Heaven to begin His heavenly priesthood of mediation between God and man.  By this mediation He sent us the Holy Ghost and His sevenfold gifts.  He proved that His kingdom is not of this world, increased the merit of our faith, and invited us to follow Him to our celestial home.  By separating Himself from us for a time, Our Lord purifies and spiritualizes our love, so we may be more perfectly united with Him in this life and the next.
