From Our Exchanges

[The Guardian]

Heaven, where Christ is, is not far away from earth. It is merely that he was received out of our sight, not out of our neighborhood. That which received him was but a cloud, a passing mist upon the hilltop, the most intangible of things. When it lifted he was no longer seen. That was all. The slightest possible veil hides him from our eyes, in the church and in the common ways of life. St. Mark (or some equally authoritative writer) tells us how the disciples, after momentarily gazing up into the sky in futile fashion, went forth and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them just as if nothing had happened to make any difference in the reality of his presence—as indeed nothing had. And St. Matthew gives, as Christ's very last word, "Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world."
