Ascension is on the cutting edge between saying goodbye and cherishing memories. The moment of farewell is visible, but at the same time invisible. The beloved one really disappears from life. Even the memory of the beloved one gradually dissolves and is getting the past, only a story, becomes more and more detached from the reality of the beloved one. Then the question asked to us sounds punitive: what are you staring at heaven? What do you expect from God? That He will do what you yourself are powerless to do? We must not leave Jerusalem, in the language of Luke, but wait for the promise of the Father. We must not run away from our task, leave the place of action prematurely, in despair or desperation. Do not run away. It is our skill to make visible the emotion of meeting our Lord Jesus and to show that we know of great depth in our human life.
