Ascension Day

Today marks the 40th day after Easter, when we remember that Jesus returned to heaven where he now reigns in glory.

It must have been a strange experience for the disciples as once again they were being parted from their Lord and their friend. But Jesus gave them words of comfort and told them to wait in Jerusalem for the gift of God’s Spirit. They would not be alone… he would be with them always…. until the end of time.
