Today we celebrate the Ascension of the Lord. This refers to Jesus' entrance into heaven. Later in the year, we will celebrate the Assumption of Mary. While both events involve entrance into heaven, they are fundamentally different. Ascension is used to describe how Jesus entered heaven under His own power. As God the Son, He did not need assistance. Assumption, on the other hand, means Mary was taken into heaven by God; she did not enter by her own power.
When Jesus completed His mission on earth, He entered the heavenly kingdom where He now reigns. This kingdom is perfect. We cannot really comprehend what that means. Perhaps each person's experience of heaven will be different. Perhaps it is beyond any concept we can currently understand. Whatever heaven may be like, being united with our Lord for all eternity will be the greatest happiness we have ever known.
Jesus' kingship is not limited to heaven. The gospel today tells us that Jesus has been given "all power in heaven and on earth". Jesus has commanded us to go and share His message of love with those around us. This world is definitely not perfect and neither are we. But it is only by following Jesus in this life that we can hope to spend the next one with Him in heaven.
