May 21 - “All Apostles At Ascension" © artwork by Br. Mickey McGrath, OSFS.

The Ascension of Jesus is the departure of Christ from Earth into the presence of God.

Jesus, in the company of the disciples, is taken up in their sight after warning them to remain in Jerusalem until the coming of the Holy Spirit; as he ascends a cloud hides him from their view, and two men in white appear to tell them that he will return "in the same way you have seen him go into heaven."
