Ascension is celebrated 40 days after Easter Sunday and ten days before Pentecost. The Church celebrates Christ’s ascent to God his Father. By ascending to Heaven, Jesus fulfills the meaning of his resurrection: to enter, with his body, into the glory of God. If Christ leaves his disciples while rising, he continues to accompany them through the Holy Spirit. “You are going to receive strength, that of the Holy Spirit who will come upon you. Then you will be my witnesses (…) to the ends of the earth”, we can read in the book of the Acts of the Apostles. The Ascension is also the promise of our own resurrection, because like Christ, we are destined to enter into the glory of the Father.
