Today we celebrate Jesus' return to the Father. We might compare the Feast of the Ascension to the passing of a baton from one runner to another in a relay race. Jesus passed the baton of his work to Peter, James and John. They in return passed it on to us. And now it is our turn to pass it on to others. This means living out Jesus' teaching in our own personal lives and to live Jesus in our own lives.
