Feast of the Ascension

The Ascension of Our Lord occurred 40 days after Jesus Christ rose from the dead on Easter Sunday and it is on this day, the risen Christ, in the sight of His apostles, ascended into Heaven. Before His Ascension, Christ promised to send the Holy Spirit to His apostles.The Feast of Pentecost is celebrated the next Sunday in which the Holy Spirit came upon the apostles and Mary in the upper room and tongues of fire rested on each of their heads.
