Festivalis (Week 1)
May 8: Ascension Notes / Podcast
With his mission accomplished, Jesus time on earth after that 1st Easter was short. He appeared to his disciples and others and then after 40 days he returned to heaven. However, before he left he gave his disciples their mission - to take the Word to the World. While Jesus left his disciples to carry out this work, his work for them and us has not ceased. Jesus ascended to heaven for a purpose one that he is still carrying out for his church today. The celebration of Ascension allows us to celebrate this very fact - that he is in heaven carrying out everything for the good of His Church and for each of us.
