Ascension of the Lord
Christ ascended to heaven both for our sake and for the fittingness of who he is. St. Thomas writes, “Now by His Resurrection Christ entered upon an immortal and incorruptible life. But whereas our dwelling-place is one of generation and corruption, the heavenly place is one of incorruption. And consequently it was not fitting that Christ should remain upon earth after the Resurrection; but it was fitting that He should ascend to heaven”.
