“Then he led them out as far as Bethany, raised his hands, and blessed them. As he blessed them he parted from them and was taken up to heaven.”
Isn’t it curious that Jesus took them to Bethany where his good friends—Mary, Martha and Lazarus—lived!
Be among Jesus’ friends/followers as He blesses them and ascends into heaven.
What does this whole event say to you about Jesus’ love for his friends, including you?
Heritage word—“Let us be glad! Let us continue to seek His will above all things—in this search is our peace and our unfailing joy.”
(Sister Mary Arthur, 7th Provincial of the Toledo Province)
