Seventh Sunday of Easter

On Thursday we celebrated the feast of Ascension of our Lord. I came across this portrait by Hans Von Kulmback(1480-1522) recently. It captured my attention. The two human feet of Jesus at the top of a large painting of the Ascension. Most of the canvas is taken up by the apostles, who are drawn up with Christ through their eyes, as his feet move off the top of the painting, into the place of his Father. This focused attention on Christ is vital to live our Christian life well in this world. He is with us to the end of times.
