2. Special Character Week 4

The Ascension of Jesus into Heaven.  Sunday was the day when we remembered Jesus leaving the Apostles. Jesus had been with his apostles after his resurrection.

Ascension Sunday - Father John O’Connor has an excellent post on his Food for Faith site on Jesus’ Ascension. He says, “Most people think of the Ascension of Jesus as being a ‘departure’ moment. Jesus was here and now he is gone… It would be easy to wrongly think that his ministry showed us how to build the city of God on earth, and now he has gone and the mission is left to us. This is the error… In fact Jesus has not left this mission to us alone. Our mission is always Jesus’ mission. HE is the missionary. We are the loved servants…. We are never alone. Jesus is with us.
