This Sunday we celebrate the Ascension of Our Lord, perhaps one of the most misunderstood elements within the Christian narrative. The Ascension does not mean Jesus goes “up, up, and away” as if his presence leaves earth, but rather that he assumes the throne of heaven so as to direct matters here on earth.
