THE ASCENSION
OF OUR LORD

The feast of the Lord’s Ascension always falls on the fortieth day after Christ’s Resurrection. This is one of the principal feast days of our Lord. It celebrates the memory of Christ’s Ascension into heaven underscores its significance for Christ and for us.
St. John Chrysostom, in his homily on the Ascension says: “Today the human race is completely reconciled with God. The ancient battle and enmity have disappeared. We, who were unworthy to live even on earth – are now lifted up to heaven. Today we become heirs to the kingdom of heaven, we, who do not even deserve earth; we ascend to heaven and inherit the throne of the King and Lord. Human nature, against which the cherubim guarded paradise, is now raised up above all the cherubim.”
The spirit of the services of this feast, as a whole, is uplifting and joyful. The Church rejoices at the glory of Christ (God and Man), who is now seated at the right hand of the Father. He ascended into heaven, in order to send us the Comforter – the Holy Spirit – and to “prepare a place for us,” (John 14, 2) as he promised.
