Ascension Thursday


"The Feast of the Ascension, one of the great festivals of Christianity, is observed on Thursday, 40 days after Easter. I looked at several depictions of this event and many of them were similar to this one - just His feet showing...........they look rather dainty in this painting....I could not find the name of the artist....

Today is also a holy day of obligation.

Nice image! I am especially intrigued by the woman amongst the guys. I have been thinking a lot about the reference "men of Galilee" hmmm.
