Published by:

On Thursday, May 5, we celebrate the Ascension.  Forty days after Jesus resurrected from the dead, as he and his disciples were on the Mount of Olives, Christ was literally taken up into heaven.  (Acts 1:9-11).  Angels who were present told the disciples that one day Jesus would come back down to earth just as he went up.
