The Ascension of Jesus—What does this feast mean for our faith and daily life? The Ascension account by Luke seems more like just tying things together after the Resurrection instead of a call to new vision and action. Yet, the Church gives that event the status of a major Feast. Even artists often have trouble portraying the meaning of the feast in their stained-glass windows and paintings. Together we will discover the rich message and deeper meaning of this mysterious feast and what revelation God intends for us today through its celebration.
