The Ascension of the Lord


It would be a mistake to interpret the Ascension

as “the temporary absence of Christ from the world”.

Rather, we go to heaven

to the extent that we go to Jesus Christ

and enter into him.

Heaven is a person

“Jesus himself is what we call ‘heaven’.


Pope Benedict XVI
