Ascension The Feast of the Ascension of Christ



Today we celebrate the Feast of the Ascension of Christ. The importance of this historical event, is that Christ ascended into Heaven as man and as God. Having condescended to take on our flesh, becoming both perfect man, and, at the same time, perfect God, he never put off His humanity, but deified it, and made it and us capable of apprehending heavenly things.

The Ascension is important, because those who love God and believe in Him, will join Him in the heavens, in the flesh, just as He now abides in the Heavens in the flesh. Because of His ascension, our flesh and souls will be saved, for Christ made human flesh capable of deification. As deified creatures, we will live forever, united, both body and soul.

Love in Christ,
Abbot Tryphon

Christ is Ascended!
From earth to heaven!
