    The Ascension of Our Lord

    thursday, 5 may 2016 at 6pm

    Plainsong Eucharist at the High Altar followed by the Annual General Meeting of the Friends of St George’s Cathedral.

    5may1The Ascension of Our Lord Jesus Christ has been celebrated on the fortieth day after Easter since early Christian times, some fifth-century authors claiming that even in their day it was of ‘ancient custom’.  It commemorates the narrative, found in today’s readings from The Acts of the Apostles and from the Gospel of Luke, of the risen Christ’s ascent into heaven in the sight of his disciples.  It is in The Acts of the Apostles that the event is described as being forty days after the Resurrection. The letter to the Ephesians testifies to its importance even for first-century Christians. The theological significance of this observance is that, whereas in his risen person before the Ascension, our Lord was present with his disciples only at particular times and places, afterwards he ‘ascended far above all the heavens, so that he might fill all things.’ (Ephesians 4: 10).
