The Transfiguration of Our Lord
His face shone like the sun, and His garments became white as snow. A bright cloud overshadowed them and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my Beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to Him." When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces with awe. But Jesus came and touched them saying, "rise, and have no fear." (Matthew 17)

Ascension of Our Lord - May 21

Ascension means that Christ is no longer physically in the world. How then are we to appropriate the things that Christ accomplished in his Life, on the Cross, through the Resurrection? How is a personal relationship with One who is absent even possible? With the Ascension and His glorification, He finished His work here and reoccupied His place next to the Father. He prays that the Father will send “Another Comforter", (John 14:16). This occurred on Pentecost and if that event is read in the context of Jesus’ words at His last discourse, it becomes apparent that what is significant here is the personal descent of the third person of the Trinity. We see evidence of the personal nature of this descent in the way Jesus speaks about Him abiding with the disciples forever, teaching them, and reminding them of all that Christ taught them. It is precisely in His absence that Christ can now be known by all.
