Ascension Day

Always on a Thursday and forty days into the Easter celebration. What sense do you make of this?

Ascension by Garofalo (1481-1559) - Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Antica in Rome

Luke 24: 49-53

49And see, I am sending upon you what my Father promised; so stay here in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.’ 50 Then he led them out as far as Bethany, and, lifting up his hands, he blessed them. 51While he was blessing them, he withdrew from them and was carried up into heaven. 52And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy; 53and they were continually in the temple blessing God.
