Fr. Wade gives us a teaching on The Ascension of Our Lord Into Heaven...
The Ascension is Christendom’s belief of Christ's going up to Heaven forty days after His Resurrection from the dead. All the creeds affirm the fact, and the Church teaches that Jesus ascended into Heaven in body and soul (Denzinger 801). He ascended into Heaven by His own power: that is, “as God” in divine power and “as Man” in the power of His transfigured soul, which moves His transfigured body at will.
