On the Thursday of the sixth week of Pascha, we in the Orthodox Church celebrate the Ascension of our Lord and God and Saviour Jesus Christ. This Feast, one of the Twelve Great Feastdays of the ecclesiastical year, is based on the Gospel of Luke 24:50-53 and the Book of Acts 1:1-12 which speaks of this event 40 days after Pascha.
