Jesus Ascension


In Christian art , the ascending Jesus is often shown blessing an earthly group below him, signifying the entire Church. [10] The Feast of the Ascension is celebrated on the 40th day of Easter , always a Thursday; [5] the Orthodox tradition has a different calendar up to a month later than in the Western tradition, and while the Anglican communion continues to observe the feast, many Protestant churches have abandoned the observance.
