Ascension DayMay 5, 2016
The Ascension of Christ
Ascension Day celebrates the bodily Ascension of Jesus into heaven. The Latin term used for the feast, ascensio, signifies that Christ was raised up by his own powers.
One of the most important feast days in Christian churches - along with the feasts of the Passion, of Easter, and Pentecost - the Feast of the Ascension is also known as Ascension Thursday, Holy Thursday, and the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord.
The three days before Ascension Thursday are sometimes referred to as the Rogation days and the previous Sunday, the Sixth Sunday of Easter (or the Fifth Sunday after Easter), as Rogation Sunday.
