Jesus ascends visibly to Heaven, drawing our attention, our hope there. We easily forget about Heaven. But this life is always reminding us about heaven, if we know how to recognize these signs.
- Many reminders are negative: the pains of this world remind us that this life is not Heaven.
- And this world is passing. We long for a lasting one.
- But all the authentic goods that we experience in this life are like glimpses of Heaven.
- God will bring about new Heavens and a new Earth, a total renewal of Creation.
- Our deepest longing, our desire for love, will be fulfilled in His embrace.
