This month we celebrate The Ascension of Our Lord

  When Jesus was ready to return to heaven, he took his disciples aside to make sure that they understood everything that had happened to him.  He explained why it was important for him to be crucified and to be raised from the dead to fulfill what the Scriptures had said about him.  He also told them that he was going to return to his Father in heaven, and that the Holy Spirit would come to be with them.

  At first, the disciples were sad that Jesus would be leaving them, but then the Bible tells us that Jesus opened their minds so they would understand.  Then, an amazing thing happened.  The Bible tells us that Jesus lifted his hands and blessed his disciples.  While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven.  The disciples stood and watched as Jesus ascended higher and higher until he disappeared from view.  What an amazing sight that must have been!
