The Church celebrates The Feast of The Ascension, on Thursday on the fortieth day after The Resurrection of The Lord, and we would like to meditate together on the spiritual meanings that are included in that Feast, so that we can celebrate it with a deep comprehension of the inspirations which are embodied in the Feast…….

(Acts 1:8)…..
