This is much like the time of the Apostles in the Upper Room from Ascension to Pentecost. It’s an inbetween time as we transition from COVID19 lockdowns, shutdowns, and stay home orders into a time of venturing out into the world to resume life after. Jesus promised us that all things work for good for those who love him. This pandemic, too, will work for good.
After the elation of having Jesus return to them after the Resurrection, the disciples must endure a final parting – Jesus clearly is going home to his Father and leaving them behind.
