Feast of Ascension of the Lord

On June 2, the Holy Church celebrated the great feast of the Ascension of the Lord.  Culturally, this feast trails behind the solemnity of how Pascha and the Nativity of the Lord are celebrated by the faithful.  However, this is unfortunate, since this feast celebrates the culmination, one might say, of the Lord’s salvific life on this earth for mankind, in that this holy day commemorates how the Lord took our human nature and with it sat at the right hand of God the Father.
