After Jesus Christ breathed upon His Apostles and filled them with the Holy Ghost they were finally able to grasp the fact that our Lord Jesus Christ, who was truly born of the Blessed Virgin Mary, truly suffered and died, had actually truly risen from the dead as well! The cross had given scandal to them and their faith in the resurrection was weak, but now they firmly believed in the risen Christ!
The Apostles experienced great joy at the Ascension because they realized they too would share in the glorified humanity they were witnessing in Christ Jesus. We too should feel the same joy. We too will share in these same gifts!
Sincerely in Christ,
Rev. Jeffery A. Fasching
